    I ordered them from Nomad Ideas. They're based in the UK.

    Recommendations for summer friendly (i.e they will work with shorts) shoes other than topsiders? Im trying to avoid vans/chucks/tigers. Thanks!

    what's your style like? what are you looking for? penny loafers or espadrilles, perhaps.

    Not sure about penny loafers and shorts, do people do that? Especially black ones? I have a pair of black cordovan alden loafers and the longer I have them the more I start to feel like penny loafers are ugly, pointless shoes. Most lace-up dress shoes are nicer and more comfortable and as far as casual shoes they arent that good looking or comfortable either


    I've been considering espadrilles but they seem really hobo-y and pretty much akin to vans slip ons

    Not black ones. If you don't like the shape then tassel loafers.

    What lightweight jackets are people looking at this season, and are any of them under $200?

    oxfords, khakis, vans. I need better white sneakers. and a piece of outerwear. I'm thinking about a khaki flight styled jacket

    Nothing wrong with hobo style.

    I found these for cheap like under a hundred. Light weight with just the right deets and colors that I want. They are just the perfect weight for layering with light weight knits and I can't wait to Jazz 'em up with some accessories

    I feel like tassel loafers are even worse, I just cant get behind those. They are so arbitrary and superfluous...

    Are driving moccasins worth a look? I always assumed they were essentially the same thing as boat shoes with a different sole

    Check out the Quoddy canoe mocs. I have a pair and they were my go-to shoes all last summer and likely will be again. More casual than a penny loafer, lower profile and less coverage than a boat shoe, and better looking than most driver mocs I think. Actually probably going to buy a second pair so I have one to just leave at work on days I ride my bike in.
