Black Loafers with Outfit Suggestions

As you know we like to take pictures at Modshoes. There many reasons, but one good reason is that we want to show are shoes with clothes that you may already have. So below you will see The Squire – The Duke – The Earl with various combinations. We like to think this will take away some of the guess work on what to wear our shoes with.

Stepped Mod Trousers and Shoes

Stepped Mod Trousers and Shoes

Here at modshoes we liked the stepped trousers. When done correctly the trouser sits really good with the shoes, and keeps that all important line in the the trouser from buckling.

I don’t want to go into some long article about tailoring, but i do get asked where can you buy these style of trousers from ? Hence why i am writing. The trousers themselves are from Adaptor Clotting, who are now making their own range of clothes inc Suits and Trouser.

But the important bit is the step you have to get a Tailor or seamstress to help you with. There are differing thoughts on height and it can make a difference which shoes you wear, and the width of the trouser. So the edge of the trouser must be just shy of the top of the shoe, but not too much as you end up with ankle swingers.

If you are thinking of getting your trousers done, make sure you get a trouser that sits right around your waist or hip, as the whole exercise can be rendered useless if you pull your trousers up after !

Now in terms of the shoes you can see here a few example from the Modshoes range, and we think they go nicely with the blue trousers. Personally i love seeing a bit of the Tassels or Fringe coming out from below the trouser. When done right it can look very smart.

Sometimes the laces on a brogue or normal shoe can get caught, so bare this in mind if you are thinking about this style.

Anyways enjoy the pics.

Mod Shoes & Classic Outfit No1 – The Harrington

modshoes tassel loafers weavers the allnightersMod Shoes & Classic Outfit No1 – The Harrington

There are many classic looks out there, but this one has to be up there at the top.

The red Harrington is an absolute classic. Coupled with a pair of jeans or trousers and some smart shoes, it can be argued that you are ready for 95% of the time. This means you can go to the pub, you can go into town on a Saturday, football, Soul do, SKA do, scooter rally, GIG , the list is very long

And thats one of the major reason we do often do pictures of our shoes with this setup.

Now there are many Harrington makes out there, and you can buy ones from £20 to whatever price you like . Some say the original Baracuta G9 , as worn by many film stars etc, is the only authentic one. The one in the pics is a Ben Sherman, the cloth is pretty good for the price.

But it is what you put it with that counts, and we think the shoes below hit the spot! So yes a Tassel loafer, Brogue or Desert boot is going to look pretty good. Personally I prefer a dark jean with more formal shoes. But a desert boot goes pretty much with any shade of jean.

And its not just jeans, as you can see in the pics, normal trousers can also fit really well.

We hope you like the pics
