    Hello Gents,

    I just purchased a nice (imho) of loafers off of ebay and though I thought I had a few ideas for what to wear them with, I'm starting to second guess myself.

    I would never wear them with a suit and I don't think they are quite sporty enough to wear with my jeans. I do have a few nice pairs of Mabitex slacks they might work with. Anyway, I'm open to suggestions.



    Help!

    I don't like the black (?) and brown two-tone look to them. They also look a bit too old-man for my tastes. I feel like these shoes would most often be paired with billowy double pleated khakis. As you obviously won't be wearing them like that I think they would do alright with a pair of slacks in stone or some khaki derivative. Hard for me to imagine pairings as I don't much care for them.

    Hmmm. ... billowy, double pleated khakis...YIKES! Not in this lifetime.:crazy: I actually thought the two tone sort of helped make them look a little less "old man like". I'm 50 so I can get away some old man steez on occassion (bow ties, seersucker etc.) However, I always like to freshen up those look with nicely tailored items. So again, billowy just wont' do.

    Tassel loafers can look good with the right last, but these are pretty hideous. The black and brown are an ugly clash.
