Did you know that Loafers was a shoe design that first appeared in Norway in the 1930s. Since then, loafers are synonymous with comfort and style while being timeless and appealing. A lace-less shoe design that never looks old or obsolete, when worn rightly. It comes in a range of materials, styles, and colours. The choices are endless. Loafers provide an easy, dressy and polished finish. A shoe design that will be seen a lot this year. They certainly have made a come back in the last two years but most guys are still not sure how to wear them or when to wear them.
How To Wear
From the casual sporty look to suits and blazers, loafers are always stylish. You can go from classic colours for a more gentle look, to bolder colours or patterns for a style statement. It’s up to you. You may choose a pair of loafers that suits your overall look, but be careful to cut the trousers at the right length and aren’t sagging over your shoes. It can look very odd if you wear them in the wrong way. I am also seeing guys wearing these with no socks and in summer teaming them with jeans. But as you can see this is how I like to choose to wear my loafers.
To Sock And Not To Shock
There is a huge debate about if one should wear socks or not with a pair of loafers. The rule says that you shouldn’t. But, rules are meant to be broken. You could wear socks that match your trousers for a safe result or go the extra mile with a pair of coloured socks contrasting your outfit. At MenStyleFashion it is all about experimenting and see what looks and feels right for you.
Today, I chose to present you with a pair of tassel loafers, handmade by Ioannis Karagiorgos, a super-talented shoemaker based in Kifissia. Tassel loafers came to life by an American actor, called Paul Lukas who envisioned an elegant and dressy shoe design that was also practical.
The green bespoke tassel loafers are made of suede, which creates a luxurious, yet delicate effect. The key element of the exact shoe is the matching green sole. The appealing appearance, the excellent finish, and the indescribable comfort make Ioannis Karagiorgos’ shoes one of a kind. They are so comfortable too and that is important for guys like me.
With such a quality shoe, you then can choose high street labels to complete the overall look. The statement green tassel shoes matched perfectly with my tartan Selected Homme suit from ASOS. I completed my outfit with a green tie from a ZARA and a pair of matching green socks from ASOS, too.
