    It can go either way, but what would you do?

    If these are your first dress shoes and you're in a professional environment where you're regularly wearing suits, you need a black oxford of some sort, and a brown lace up with somewhat less formal styling. Save the loafers for a third shoe- for wear with a sportcoat.
