Style essentials for traveling light [via TheMonsieur]

Six tassels?  Really?  Would you wear three neckties simultaneously?  No?  Oh word, because for a second there I really thought someone was suggesting that six tassels is not excessive or some shit like that.

  2. NTB. Heading to South Beach for a long weekend with the old lady. I'm a beer and beard kind of guy and fear that my footwear might not measure up. I've already been told to leave my boots at home. You have any suggestions for kicks that will get me in the club without making me look like a d-bag from Nantucket?

    You know that whole “when in Rome…” maxim?  Well, I’m guessing no one ever told you the rest of it, but it goes a little something like this: “when in Rome, pretend like you’re from Milan—it’s closer in proximity than America, so you won’t end up looking totally clueless, and it will afford you the opportunity to steez the fuck out.” 

    I’m from the beer-and-beard ilk myself, and when I’m posting up in a beach town, I like to rock a strong pair of loafers.  And if that’s still giving you the douche chills, I also holler at blue suede wingtips.  Whatever you do, don’t wear socks.

Gold loafers for my photo shoot in two weeks.

What, you auditioning to be the robot in EuroTrip 2 or something?  Spray-painting your shoes gold is the footwear equivalent of throwing plastic 13” hubcap spinners on an ‘87 Buick: cheap and unsightly.

  4. Quick question re: loafers - tassels or no tassels?

    As long as they don’t have spikes on them, I’m fine with either.  However, I do sometimes associate tassels with '74 Sevilles with whitewall tires, impotence, baggy white linen pants and Florida.

  5. sorta bouncing off the question below, i need a nice pair of loafers, something casual. preferably <$200. any brand suggestions etc? also, i live in australia which makes getting US stuff hard sometimes...

    At $140, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better value than the Sebago Classics.  Their website does not ship internationally, but I’m sure you can find these just about anywhere.  

  6. Twilight Zone

    First, to Christian at Ivy Style: it’s not a “penny loafer” if you can’t lodge a penny into the vamp.  Second, to anyone who is actually contemplating buying these disasters: the moment you wear these in public you admit to the world that you have been dressed by the internet.  Subsequently, Nick Wooster will begin showing up to your place of employ but only to bum cigarettes.  Your first born son will be forced to model provocatively for Opening Ceremony Kids and end up in rehab by the time he’s 15.  Scott Schuman will photograph you for The Sartorialist, but you will have clumsily forgotten to button your fly.  And Kanye West will ask you to join the Watch the Throne Tour to sing the hook to No Church in the Wild only for you to have gotten laryngitis the afternoon of opening night while debating the merits of the Armoury’s recent purchase of Drakes London.

So I’m gonna go ahead and throw the NTB flag at the big homie Lil Rubinacci.  Scuffed up Sued loafers.  100 yard penalty, which hopefully places you back in the shop.  
Fresh Tie…

I&#8217;ve been getting more and more alley-oops lately.  This is a movement.
In a sentence, it looks like he&#8217;s been stopping his Vespa with his feet, Flintstones style.

I cosign ankle length trousers all day, but this takes things to a whole 'nother level.  Yeezy did not teach you that.
