    Stick with brown if you're wearing with jeans, black looks bad against the blue. A black loafer actually has an incredibly limited range- black, olive or gray odd trousers, olive or gray khakis (since black is an abomination against the lord and you shouldn't be wearing them anyway). They look great with black or gray jeans too, but those aren't exactly staples of most people's wardrobes.

    Black shoes are best purchased with laces for that reason- they'll work with most of the above scenarios, but will also work with suits in those colors.

    I have black loafers and hardly ever wear them.

    ps, both those options blow.

    What's specifically wrong with the options so maybe I can go find some other options? Any recommendations? Thanks

    Thanks a lot! The second option also comes in brown but is a lot more expensive than the first so I guess I will go with the first.

    Those look pretty nice, but I can't seem to find anything wrong with the two options no?

    If you're serious about bit loafers you should go with Gucci. Otherwise, get the suede tassel loafers.

    +1, everyone should have at least one pair of Gucci bits.
