Is The Loafer Exclusively A Summer Shoe?
Evening all. I recently bought a pair of grey wool tweed-like trousers for A/W, and have been thinking about what footwear would work. I have a pair of oxblood penny loafers that would look really good with them colour-wise, but it got me thinking about whether loafers should be worn with such a wintery garment. I tend to think of loafers as a S/S shoe, but I'm not sure if this is right. It might be to do with their association with sunny Europe, or the fact that I always go sockless with my bass weejuns. Would be great to hear your thoughts on this.
PS I know there is a footwear forum, but it doesn't seem to get as much traffic, so I thought I would post here. Sorry to all you purists...
