Hello out there, I'm a short-time lurker, first-time poster. Â Gotta say I was thrilled to find the place. Â Took the route many of you probably did: Â Modern Man, Ask Andy, etc... and was truly excited to find the level of discourse and knowledge here. Â It has been a real treat reading through a lot of the old threads. My question: I have several pairs of loafers-- Bass Weejuns, some Johnston & Murphy tassel jobs, even a chocolate brown suede pair that I really like. Â (All for less-than "business formal" wear, of course; i.e. I don't wear them with suits). Â I was thinking of getting a pair of the Gucci horse-bit classics, as I think they might complement some business casual items such as the odd trouser and sportcoat combinations, or even the right pair of jeans in certain situations. Â This style seems to have been around long enough to have reached a certain level of general acceptance, though some might consider them too laden with "The Preppy Handbook" connotations. Â It got me to wondering, do some of you guys have a favorite loafer? Â Certain pair, style or brand and why?
