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.

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.
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.
