I would disagree with this rule-- to me, the only thing different about a blucher shoe and a balmoral shoe is the way the laces-portion of the shoe is done.  as long as the shoe is dressy and well-made (and doesn't have a heavy sole, or rough-leather), it's my understanding it can go very well with a single-breasted suit, or sportcoat and trousers-- just not with a double breasted suit, as it is considered more formal.
I agree with the Foxx on this one.

As would I. But I would agree that a balmoral is ever so slightly better.

A very conservative person; someone who is obsessive about rules and propriety, extremely straightlaced and severe, almost opposed to fun as a matter of principle.

Why only Indians?
What about loafers with a brown suit? Only for Indian farmers? koji

I don't think this is right. The granddaddy of the loafer as we know it is from Norway, if my research is correct.

I believe Ernest uses the name Indians to mean Native Americans and their moccasins.

Oh. Well, even so, he is still wrong.
