who says you can’t wear loafers with a suit?  sure as hell not michael caine.  in fact, i couldn’t find a picture of him not wearing loafers (and few without a cigarette in his mouth).  if you’re a suit-and-tie to work kind of guy, then michael caine is your style muse.  his suits were tailored to perfection by the late great english tailor doug hayward.  hayward tailored his customers suits to savile row standards, but with the relaxed aesthetic of italian design.  caine finished the look with thick rimmed glasses, a thin tie and a cigarette.  it worked as caine is often regarded as one of the most stylish men on and off the silver screen.  and if you haven’t seen caine do work in get carter, do yourself a favor and rent it this weekend.  it’s a classic.
