    Hi Everyone,
    I have been trolling this forum for hours.. It is great! I feel I have a good sense of style for being a your 30 year old dad.. However, I received a pair of shoes that I really like but have no clue what to wear them with.. Was hoping I could get some advice from you guys..

    I work in an office.. Usually wear slacks and a dress shirt..

    Trolling is the right word.

    Try to sell them to someone and then buy decent looking shoes with the proceeds.

    Nah.. I'm keepin them..
    I have your your typical loafers..
    Black Ferragamo's, Black Hugo Boss, Black Coach, Brown Coach, Brown Hugo Boss, Ox Blood, etc..

    These are different. I am young.. I am in sales.. I don't want to wear them everyday but cannot figure how to properly match them.. Tan looks ehh and brown is boring with them..

    Match them with never closing a sale.

    They are not very nice.

    I agree with selling them.

    If not, perhaps fake tan and a diamond stud earing?

    Ok, I'm gonna take a leap and assume two things here:

    1. You're serious, even though this style is considered worse that child-rape on SF
    2. You're not looking for the SF-Approved style

    These are not formal loafers, and should never be seen with a suit. You may be tempted to try them out with tropical styles such as Linen but this will make you look like an Egyptian market worker.

    Try pairing them with a pair of jeans and a fitted shirt. Personally I have never seen a Gucci print look that works, I'm forever being reminded of Asian students who buy anything with a designer print.

    If you're a dark skinned guy in good shape and a great dollop of style you may be able to pull them off with Chinos and a white shirt and a jumper thrown over the shoulders, but if you're gonna dress like that, you better be stepping out of the tennis club into your vintage Aston Martin.

    Blackhood,

    I dress well every day.. I would consider myself to be "modern" when it comes to dressing aat work. Flat front fitted slacks, fitted shirts, flashy BOLD ties, I buy nice things.. I take care of them, I have them fitted properly, etc..

    These just caught my eye.. I don't want to wear them with a suit.. Maybe slacks and a shirt.. Maybe jeans.. I dunno..

    I am dark skin, dark brown hair, 5'11 200lbs (need to loose a few)..

    Juse hoping to get a decent opinion.. I didn't join the forum to be shit talked..

    If that's how it is I can move on..

    You didn't come here for a decent opinion. You came here for positive support. Once people said negative comments about them you cried like a little biotch. If you want shoes that look like elf shoes with gucci whoring all over it then so be it, but no one, especially on a clothing forum, is going to say they look good w/ anything.

    Where did I cry like a biotch?

    I don't need positive support.. I need help matching a pair of loafers..
