I think I will get my first pair of AE, the kind that are on sale now, in the near future....quick questions... 1. When do most of you wear loafers? I have never worn them much before...do they look OK with casual slacks like on a casual friday or a weekend at a nice restaurant? Is it possible to wear them at work if I wear a shirt and tie, sometimes a sportscoat, but not usually, to the office? 2. Regardless of the oxford/loafer choice, can you suggest some good shoe models? 3. What do most of you wear black shoes with? Is brown generally more useful or versitile than black? Currently I have one black shoe, one brown shoes, and a fwo tones dress shoe. 4. Does it look dumb to wear dress shoes outside work or a formal setting...and conversely, the casual AE shoes do not seem that casual..cant the casuals be worn to work, or does that look dumb? Thanks.
