A Brief Note: Slipping Into Tassel Loafers

There's something peculiarly comforting about shoes that one can just slide into quickly, and swiftly. I am consistently reminded of this every time I have to go through airport security in laced up shoes of any form, and I think, "If only I could just wear a simple pair of loafers with everything". It goes without saying, by "simple pair of loafers", I mean a cleanly constructed number finessed in velvety, dip-dyed calfskin like M. Gemi's Fiocco - a quintessential loafer in its own right currently available in one classic color. Other features include its leather tassel detail, all leather lining, and footbed. 

The best loafers can be dressed up or dressed down. That said, pair this shoe style with any ensemble from your classic crew neck sweater, shirt, and trousers, to a pair of dark denim jeans, and a t shirt worn with no socks. With either look, you're guaranteed an easy apparel upgrade.
