    I thought these shoes looked neat and I was wondering what you guys think of them.

    "Donald J Pliner" brand shoes, "Paco" style

    In a similar vein, but doubtlessly superior in style and quality are white Tod's loafers/driving shoes. Or some nice linen slippers if you are not doing much walking. Yes they will wear out quickly, but that is the reality of summer clothing. You're not supposed to care.

    They have their place, but check the recent thread on Pliner before plunking down cash.

    My first reaction was, "staple for European dudes under 22."

    It will look good on on club-going guidos.

    I'll wear it though if I wanted to attract skanky females.

    Ditto the negatives above. Light colored tan looks much better than white.
