for work: black alden tassel loafers

excuse the messy camera phone photo.  i slipped these off at the office and took a quick pic.  there are a lot of bloggers out there that will tell you to steer clear of black.  in most situations, that’s absolutely true i.e. avoid black shirts, suits, and pants at all costs.  if you’re a fan of black jeans, then you must be in a rock and roll band and more power to you.  i wear a suit to work every day and most of the time pair my dark charcoal and dark navy suits with (gasp) black footwear.  last week, i purchased the black alden tassel loafers you see above.  i’ve never been a big loafer guy with my suits, but these work nicely.  the only downside to buying black shoes for work purposes is that you can’t wear them on the weekends with jeans or khakis.  well, i guess you could, but i wouldn’t if i were you.

industry of all nations portenos saddle loafers

today i saw the image above on almost every tumblr i follow.  it’s jason bateman sporting a pair of industry of all nations loafers while filming his new movie the longest week.  i really like the way the saddle color looks with a navy suit.  i don’t know too much about industry of all nations except that they try to produce products in the countries they originated using materials and local businesses in those countries.  basically, when you buy these shoes, you help out a poorer country.  you might as well.  it’s the holiday season.
