Q
Hey would you recommend a pair of simple, plain leather loafers?
from:Anonymous
A

It’s always tough to answer questions like this without knowing what price range you’re looking into, so i’ll give you a few options:

The Tapered Wallet:
Florsheim Berkley - $100
While i’ve never owned the Berkley its about as simple as simple plain leather loafers get. Florsheim’s been doing this for 120 years - they keep it clean and classic.

The Shivering Piggy Bank:
Allen Edmond Kenwood - $225
American made from a brand with some serious heritage and solid street cred. Allen Edmonds work - this shoe works. 

The “I’ll eat pb&j for a week”:
Oak Street Boot Maker’s Beefroll Loafer - $318
 designed in chicago and made in maine this is without a doubt a quality item. order them, wear them, get complimented on them, lose them under the couch for a week, find them, wear them. repeat.

The feel like a millionaire, regardless of the ‘overdrawn’ email barrage:
Crockett & Jones Apron Toe Penny Loafer - $585
its, a nice looking shoe. 

Dockers contacted me about checking out a few pairs of their relatively new Alpha Khaki - i jumped at the opportunity and had a blast imploding my closet pairing these with some new and some old items. 

Dockers also reached out to my buddy Jace. coincidentally we chose two of the same colors: camo & white. so we decided to do a little camo pant q&a:

-What’s different about Dockers Alpha Khaki?

dillon: comfort, cut & cost. i’m normally stuttin’ in stiff denim or canvas and find myself regularly avoiding chinos/khakis - because of lack of colors, difficulty finding a decent fit and simple fear of change. the Alpha Khaki kind of blew me away, after ripping open the package they were soft - like, actually soft. still sturdy & with a bit of stretch but the Alpha slid on and was comfortable from minute one (even during my new-pants jumping jacks) its narrow in the correct spots and the price is right. at $59 the alpha khaki doesnt make you give up snowcones all summer. 

jace: The big difference that I noticed is how comfortable they are.  There’s no breaking in process, you just wear them.  

I also really like the tapered bottoms.  It makes them easy to wear with shoes and boots.  None of that bootcut shit.  Slim and fitting all they way down.
Oh, and the orange buttons.  Real hunting season-esque.  

-How did you choose to style the Camo Alpha Khaki?

dillon: this pair really stretched me - camo is tough and wasnt something i’d normally wear so i decided to break a few of my own rules and play around with it. although camo is meant to blend in, it definitely attracts the eye. so i let it. it’s the focus and you’re the “guy in camo pants” no matter what. i didn’t want anything else on me fighting for attention. the color really is true camo & the pattern is nicely balanced so you can easily play to any of the tones. and it’s great for - you know, hiding in the woods & stuff.

jace: People can over think a pattern when it’s really all you need.  I paired it with a plain t and a pair of espadrilles.  

Some wrist noise.  
Sunglasses.
And I’m good.

-How would you wear these during the Summer?

dillon: camo apparel has really been making a splash in the past few seasons and as a relatively lightweight pant these might be nice to toss on this summer when the sunsets. stand out with a ‘blend in’ pattern amongst a sea of boat shoes and nantucket reds. also: flip flops on everything.

jace: I would roll these up past my calves (if they weren’t so big) and just enjoy that Summer weather.  The Alpha is light enough to wear in some heat and not so tight that it’s tough to sit 3rd grade indian style in the grass.  Anything lightweight is where I’m at this Summer. Loose t’s and khakis all the way.

two shirts & a denim jacket with tapered pants and bandana scraps accompanied by fancy shoes and garnished with sunlight.

i’ve really taken a liking to this denim jacket i picked up a few months ago on some crazy levi’s sale. (70% off, come on…) 

with all this nonsensical weather we’ve been having this jackets found itself hanging out on my shoulders for a week straight. it’s a nice fit and a perfect layering piece. i was hesitant after my purchase but despite it’s color being identical to most of my pants - it challenges me to distract and separate. i added the bandana scraps as i do with most of my jackets but i think here, it works.

your style isn’t for everyone, it wont be. but it’s yours, so create it and fix it and attempt it and occasionally fail. but have fun. laugh at yourself - sometimes i look fuckin’ ridiculous.
