Fresh Step Forward
Fall is always an exciting time for men’s footwear because you can wear just about anything. Transition from the summer months in a great pair of loafers or add a new boot to your rotation — the possibilities are truly endless. To kick off our How-To Series, we’ve selected our Westminster Tassel Loafer in black to show you two ways to wear them this fall (or year-round).
Are you a suit or leather jacket guy? More than likely, you’re both of these guys — most guys teeter between both. Finding the right shoe that not only meets the formality of the office and the modern ruggedness of everyday casual wear is tricky. A tassel loafer might now come to mind as your first choice to wear with a leather jacket or a suit, but, these classic shoes hold their own in both sartorial situations. They might even become your secret weapon to no brainer dressing.
- Be A Style Rebel With A Cause: a leather jacket instantly conjures up James Dean-like vibes and he wasn’t one to shy away from donning a sharp pair of loafers. The combination together offers a contrast that’s modern, preppy and edgy all at the same time. (White socks optional)
- Suitable For The Office: the light grey suit is this fall’s go to for taking the office by storm in style. Of course brown shoes are a classic & fail safe combination with that grey suit, but, black leather tassel loafers add an informal elegance to your suited kit that’s unexpected. Add accessories like a charcoal wool tie and black leather watch for some depth and to complement your shoes perfectly.
Shined Bright: a dull shoe = a sad shoe (especially black leather shoes). If you’re wearing your shoes 2 to 3 times per week, they’ll need a fresh shine once a week. Saphir makes outstanding polish and leather conditioners that will keep all your shoes primed & shined!
