Allen Edmonds Rimini Loafer – $149 ($295) | Kenneth Cole Fine Man – $75 ($168)
There’s been a nice resurgence in the popularity of brown shoes over the past few years. (See this article from our friends at Primer on how to wear brown shoes with a gray suit.) Although some of us still cling to our black lace ups and boots as our go-to shoes (myself included), every guy needs to have at least a couple types of brown leather shoes at the ready. Two of which you see right up there ^
For the more Conservative Dressers – Stick with the Allen Edmonds loafer. Credit to Yakov for sending in the style tip. These are made in Italy for the heritage American brand and they’re part of the ongoing A.E. Clearance sale. Yakov owns them & he says it fits like a slipper, the leather is slim but strong, and they’re recraftable.
For the more Modern Dressers – Last Call by Neiman Marcus is selling the above Kenneth Cole laceups for $75 and they’ve got to be the Fine Man oxford. All the details are exactly the same except for the price which is much higher on other sites. Nice curved stitching sweep along the side and the price is unbeatable.
