BUT NOW I have a question for you gentlemen and ladies.

The color is accurately depicted above (I don't have a belt that color!! :icon_smile: ) but what colors of trousers and which events would these be appropriate?

Wow! - Very nice looking shoes. I love the style, but I'm not sure I could handle that color. But that is just my taste. Is their a name for that actual color?
Hmm, I'm thinking they might look good with tan or khaki pants? I would need to see it before I endorse it.

Burnt Orange

Not burnt siena! My real problem as indicated above is to find a matching belt!

John Lobbs ! you're not going to walk on the GROUND with them are you?

Bespoke as they are perhaps they can make a belt for you even if you had to supply the buckle (?) Since you will likely never exactly match the color you might want to see if they are game, I know Alden does make belts with finishes matched to their shoes.

Was there a reason you chose that color, as opposed to the same model in a more subdued, traditional or common color? The difficulty in coordinating might have been predictable.

I find the overall form and proportions wonderful. The color, given a few years, will probably settle into something wonderful too.

Andy, beautiful loafers and congratulations.

Personally, I like the color a lot. I tend to go for more subtle or traditional shades but in this case, it's a very high-end pair of shoes so an interesting color such as burnt sierra can make them the featured element of your ensemble.

As for what color trousers, I doubt there are any pairings I could suggest that would be any better than one your eye could piece together. That said, what about a blue-charcoal? I own a pair of Brioni trousers in that color that seems like it could fly.

Those are nice, I love the color.

I'd be inclined not to worry about the primary shoe color but rather go darker in some shade that complimented the sole. Might be a brown that's darker and less red that you see in a lot of shoes.

First of all, thank you for activating my account! :)

Owning a pair of JLs has long been a dream of mine, so I am both envious of and happy for you. I really like the color, too. It's sort of a brick coloring, which I think would work well with various shades of grey, or brown, or even lighter navy trousers if you're feeling adventurous.

As for the belt, well, perfect matches are overrated. Something in a light brown that's even remotely close to the color of the shoes would suffice.

Those shoes look great!

Congratulations on your first pair of Lobbs. I'd imagine they'd look great with greys and browns as others have said. Don't quote me on that, though. My footwear tastes are a bit more... plebian :icon_smile:

Andy,

I checked the website and it does not sell JL's? Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Those are beautiful shoes. I think that colour shoe needs to be worn with light-coloured trousers such as light grey, beige, cream, light blue, and any other summer colours that you may or may not care to wear. You could also try them with seersucker. The orange says to me that it's a shoe for summer. Though I'm not a fan of surcingle and ribbon belts, I've seen many that would fit well with those shoes.
