Shoes are the Base of Your Success: Loafers By Purple Eagle, Dress Sense Agency for Men
Why Loafers? Shoes in general, have the potential to make or break your outfit. Loafers are versatile, timeless, classic and can be a great asset to your wardrobe. Loafers have been at the centre of style for many years and are rising in popularity again.
A loafer has no buckles or laces. ‘ Penny Loafers’ became the trend in the 1940s, when ‘lucky’ or emergency coins were placed in the split-lip strap across the vamp. Loafers have been worn by JFK, Steve McQueen and James Dean to name a few. They are a trademark of the ‘preppy’ look and are mostly worn without socks.
Choosing Your Loafers Bespoke shoes are hand-crafted to your own foot and last a very long time. Consider classic colours like dark blue, black, brown, grey or tan in leather or suede. Consider bespoke shoes from a quality shoemaker like Edward Green who have been making shoes since 1890. Shoes by Edward Green
How to Wear Loafers Loafers transition from work to play easily. They can be worn with jeans, shorts and even suits. Wear your loafers in Spring and Summer.
The Power of Shoes Your shoes are one of the first things someone notices about you. This is why Purple Eagle believes, as apart of our Ten Platinum Dress Rules for a Man, ‘Shoes are the Base of Your Success’.
Purple Eagle Recommends Colours should be kept classic and stylish. Avoid ‘P-Colours’ (Parrott Colours) that draw attention for being loud and startling. Brands Edward Green, Ferragamo, Gucci, Kurt Geiger and Tods stock quality loafers. Invest in quality for shoes that will be not only stylish, but comfortable and long-lasting.
