The classic tasselled loafer still sets the mark for summer fashion
June 6, 2014
When summer fashion footwear is mentioned, it is easy to assume that the conversation will be centred on women’s shoes. But the industry must not forget that gentlemen are just as fashion conscious as ladies, and also demand stylish, high quality shoes.
A staple is the leather loafer. First made popular in America by Ivy Leaguers in the 1950s, this lightweight, cool and eye-catching style looks great when worn either with or without socks and seems to never go out of fashion.
With many different styles to choose from, the general feeling for 2014 is that the leather tasselled loafer is the ‘must have’ for discerning men this summer. Leather is a great choice of footwear for any season. Being versatile, waterproof and becoming more comfortable with age, the loafer makes for a classic cool when worn either with a suit or jeans and a casual shirt.
Although they come in many colours - for the ultimate in versatility it’s hard to go wrong with a pair of classic tan loafers.
