We are extremely proud to launch our first collection of beautifully-crafted leather tassel loafers made 100% in Italy. The shoes are fully hand-stitched and crafted using high-quality calf leather thus providing maximum durability and a soft leather touch. Purchasing a pair of premium dress shoes is an investment. At The Bespoke Corner, we are firm believers that investing in a pair of high-quality staple dress shoes is a much better option than continually purchasing cheaper knockoffs that wear in 12 months. The great thing about a well-made shoe is that they are created for decades of wear and can be easily resoled where necessary.
With the addition of our new loafer range, we decided to explore the argued and contemplated question of: socks or no socks? For me, I think it really comes down to personal taste as well as occasion. I’ve run through each scenario below.
Wearing your loafers with socks is the traditional look commonly found in the corporate world. Its definitely the more formal option and is a great for gentleman working in the city or business roles. If you’re job is fairly corporate than keep your sock colour the same as your suit. For those in more casual roles you can be creative and add a pop of colour.
In most cases, wearing no socks in the corporate world is a no go. What I love about leather loafers though is their versatility in wear. For example, a brown leather loafer matches perfectly with a navy suit for wear in the office, but also works for a stylish, casual look when paired with cotton trousers. I feel the ‘no socks’ look is most at home on the weekend and at semi-formal functions such as summer weddings and lunches.
Our first round of limited edition loafers are being offered at $595 AUD. We have a range of sizes so please get in contact with us or come in-store for a whisky and try a pair on yourself.
