    Not really. Much prefer one-colour shell Modified last penny loafer. These are from Anatomica.

    ^^ That's a nice looking loafer.

    For clarification, my sources tell me the 2 tone penny loafer above is on the Van last. The V tip is on the modified.

    My father once ordered a steak, and the waiter came back with a strip of beef rolled with pesto sauce and cheese as if it were a cinnamon roll. Upon seeing this, my father remarked, "You somehow found a way to ruin a perfectly good piece of meat." This shoe reminds me of that. To each his own, but I wouldn't mix two wonderful shell colors in such a haphazard fashion.

    Today i try on Alden X leather should with APC which i have bought in APC store

    Actually when i noticed this pant, it's look slim not too skinny. and there are 2 style of this color (standard trouser and five pocket)

    first time i would like to buy standard trouser in this color but my girl friends who choose this for me.

    but i wanna return but can't because sale item is final sale

    BTW

    I try it with Alden Natty boot it's look a little good and a little bad with tapper pant T^T

    I'm not sure about the two tone loafer, but the V-Tip is interesting. The contrasting shells are a little jarring at first. Try to think about the shoes with a pair of trousers. Properly paired, the trousers will bring it all together. Beyond that, yes, it's a matter of personal preference.

    In this case, the photo doesn't provide much information (probably due to the back lighting). But I don't see anything wrong.

    Nothing wrong with a lil pesto and cheese.


    IRL, I actually preferred the loafer to the V tip.

    What's the difference between the Waterloc sole and the Cork Neoprene Sole? Are they different names for the same thing? In pictures the waterloc sole looks a little darker but it could just be the picture. I need a sole for wet weather.

    the second pic, to me that's perfect, exactly what I want.
    I'll run over to Moulded Shoe this week and drop the boots off.
    You totally helped - Thanks!!

    The loafer looks nice. I am not a fan of the V tip style but this one looks good. Not sure what I would wear it with.
