Nothing says effortlessly cool and casual like a classic pair of loafers.

Widely popular among Ivy Leagues in the 50s, loafers have continued to be a go-to style beyond the diploma.

A staple in a present day man’s wardrobe, loafers are a gent’s best friend for a number of reasons. Whether you prefer pennys or tassels or even a trendy velvet pair, they can be worn in between seasons or dressed up or down to adapt to any occasion.

Loafers offer a great deal of versatility to your look as well. You can wear them with jeans and a basic tee, shorts and a preppy polo, or dress slacks and a crisp button up shirt for a clean cut look at the office.

Bottom line is they’re easy to wear, and they’re perfect for any leisurely activities during the warmer spring and summer months. It’s a classic and timeless style that adds sophisticated comfort and simplicity to your look that rarely looks out of place.
