    It's a very trad/preppy look. It's not bad at all, IMO.

    A reliable combination I've never given a moment's thought to.

    Funny, I generally don't like it when I do it. Maybe my pennies are just all wrong...

    That's what I wore back in law school. It's a good look.

    I think it's a really awesome look. Over the last several weeks, I've decided I want to overhaul my wardrobe (partly because I haven't bought many pieces of clothing in the last several years, and partly because I want to go for a new look). If you go to the RL website, you can see lots of the jeans/loafers combo.

    jeans and loafers are a classic look, traditional gucci loafer, driving shoe, but be careful with the penny...can work for some, but lets not look like an extra from happy days.
