These days, ‘loafer’ is a blanket term that refers to a variety of slip-on shoes. Originally based on a Norwegian shoemaker’s design, they became popular with Americans in the 1930s.
The loafer is available in many forms – Some of them are iconic and authentic and often comes in rich, high shine leather, further emphasising their chic appearance.
Loafers are best integrated into a sophisticated wardrobe. Able to be dressed up or down to suit the occasion, they will instantly take a polo shirt and chinos combination up a notch, while more than holding their own when paired with a suit.

Other loafers give off a more relaxed vibe and are therefore suitable for those who prefer a more casual (or smart-casual) approach to everyday dressing. However, don’t let their playful nature fool you
Try pairing loafers with a button-down shirt and rolled-up jeans for a casual -inspired look, or wearing the rich ones with a slim-cut tonic suit to give your outfit a smarter, mod-inspired edge.
Whichever style you choose, rest assured your new loafers will slot seamlessly into your existing wardrobe.
