July 20: Salvatore Ferragamo Calfskin Loafers

Yes I admit, I have a weakness for well crafted shoes and Italian shoemaker Salvatore Ferragamo makes some of the finest footwear in the world!  A little history about the company:  Salvatore Ferragamo (June 5, 1898 – August 7, 1960) was a Italian shoe designer.  He was always recognized as a visionary, and his designs ranged from the strikingly bizarre objet d’art to the traditionally elegant, often serving as the main inspiration to other footwear designers of his time and beyond. Salvatore Ferragamo died in 1960 at the age of 62, but his name lives on as an international company, which has expanded its operations to include luxury shoes, bags, eyewear, silk accessories, watches, perfumes and a ready-to-wear clothing line.

These cognac color loafers in my wardrobe are buttery soft, add a dash of ‘dressy’ with dark denim and are comfortable as all go get.

Here’s how I wore them – paired with dark Nudie indigo jeans, Paul Smith socks, Canali belt and Burberry shirt.
