Loafers are perfect for summer, so we recommend a twinning with a pair of Bermuda shorts and a white shirt or t-shirt with masculine accessories. They are strictly worn without a sock!!
Loafers are particularly well matched with chinos, cotton trousers, tailored shorts or bermuda shorts, jackets and casual shirts.l.
