Every man should have a pair of penny loafers in their closet. They are shoes that go with everything, and never go out of style.
From the iconic Bass Weejuns to the Alden 986s, there is a large spectrum that can meet every man’s price point. From a style perspective – don’t get too fancy here. Penny loafers aren’t ‘trendy’ or ‘fashion forward’. They are classic, and always will be. They go with everything – from shorts in the summer to a flannel suit in the winter. Give them a good polish twice a year and brush them frequently, and they will treat you right. My 986s have had a long ride, and have had been in for a tune up. With apologies to Mr. Frost – I’m looking forward to many more miles before they sleep.
