I would definitely not wear those.


Thank you for your opinion.

What do you like? I really give into peer pressure easily, if the OT doesn't like something I'm about to buy -- I won't get it.

frick peer pressure. Who are you, what are you about, what´s comfortable, what´s elegant, these are the questions to answer.

Then, go from there.

Why for loafers? Shouldnt that kinda be reserved for a more dressy shoe? Or boots? Loafers are pretty much traditionally and textbook always leather.

I'm basically living peer pressure when it comes to fashion. I'm very "safe" if that makes sense. I guess I need to discover what I'm about, man.

Are the loafers at least better than Sperry Billfish to walk around in with shorts or not?

I have a pair of Lucchese Classics crocodile boots already. I just want a pair of NICE shoes that are better than Sperry Topsiders and I love exotic skins, that's all. Something I can wear the frick out of it and get lots of "wow, I've never seen that before. That's a pretty cool shoe." type of stuff.

What about something like this? I rock the piss out of em w shorts. They are J & M.

ETA Peacocking is not dressing nicely IMO. Loud shoes and other clothing will get you some wows and myabe some poon at the bar but it wont get you very far with respect from other men which is ultimately what you need to become successful.

Yeah, those are pretty fire. So they manage to look good worn in pretty well?

You can't wear crocodile skin as a casual loafer unless you are a black pimp or a hispanic drug dealer. No exceptions.

Maybe I didn't make my point clear. I'm not set out to wear like the latest lime green Nikes or something -- I want the best of traditional menswear that people will know is nice, that's all. I feel like I will get some peacocking on my boots just like I did with my last pair of Lucchese -- they're normal boots but they're special at the same time. I like the compliments and I like the compliments unvoiced in people's heads.

I always buy quality brands and well constructed clothing so it HAS to look good broken in or I wont frick with it. But yes I have had mine over a year and worn them to bars, tailgating, etc and they look better every day. I am considering another pair to wear with pants cause they start to look too worn in for chinos and are only acceptable with shorts.

=( OK, I'll forget the idea. I saw a pair of crocodile skin loafers at the fine menswear store and thought they were acceptable.

I don't work or live in a corporate setting so I really have no idea what it's like out in the real world.
