Since the thread I started about the "suitability" of wearing a OCBD with a suit despite the objection of many fashion writers and menswear "experts" created a lot of opinions...let me throw out an even more controversial combination. Penny Loafers and suits? Not just the Alden LHS variety, or the full strap sleeker model with a more pointed toe...but any well crafted, good looking, well cared for quality penny loafer. Some consider this anathema...but I was intrigued when reading a book on men's fashion when the author mentioned a well known executive in NYC fashion circles who made it a personal fashion statement to always wear well polished black penny loafers with his impeccable tailor made charcoal grey suits. Forget the always wear lace ups with a suit...too many well dressed men wear tassel, bit, or full strap loafers with suits for that ole bromide to hold water except in the most formal setting. But I admit to being somewhat conflicted when it comes to penny loafers and suits. What say you?
