Starting this week with the second part of short “series” - how to combine casual footwear - including three sets of wearing different kind of loafers, partly in collaboration with French shoemaker Bexley.
Fall is probably the best season for layering as the weather starts to get a bit colder especially during mornings and evenings but most of days are still warm and sunny. By wearing gilets, scarfs and light weight sweaters or cardigans it’s easy to balance between keeping oneself warm enough and maintaining easy adaptability in case the temperature keeps rising to higher readings. I personally tend to go pretty well into the autumn without socks if possible which makes it even more important to keep my upper body adequately dressed.
My second choice I got from Bexley for this review was also from their casual range - the Ferguson driving loafer made of chesnut colored (oily) calf leather, featuring last with quite a round toe, rubber studded outsole and removable insoles.
Ended up with a pair of Fergusons as I was lacking a pair of leather made driving loafers and there are not many pairs on the market that would be both good-looking and reasonably priced. I personally like the look of the tan leather moccasin really paired with both dark and light colored denim, olive green cotton trousers or even with light colored cotton suits.
However this is not a shoe for business-meetings and I consider it to be even more casual than the light sand colored bahama model which was featured in the first part of this series. But it is a great option to be worn in case you are heading shopping, to have a drink or lunch in the city or whenever you are heading to work without any formal meetings ahead.
The outfit here consist of tones of blue, grey and brown - as I guess 90% of all my outfits do. The floral printed scarf brings a little bit color to brighten it up a little while all other parts support each other soberly. In case the weather would get hotter it would be easy to just take off the gilet and sweater and still maintain smart but casual outfit featuring the white / light blue striped button-up and fitted denim. Finally the shades of leather in the bracelet, bag and shoes are all in harmony even though not fully the same and matched.
