There is nothing WASP/Prep/Ivy/Trad about those shoes!Please tell us this is a belated April Fool's Day prank.
Those are absolutely hideous.
Never. That is how you should wear them. Richard, you are quite the dandy. I also must point out that for a big PR man you certainly aren't very self aware of what you put out on the internet. Please proofread your own work before disseminating it for the general public.
how are Italian shoes "Waspy?"those could go for women's shoes as well
Richard, I'm sorry but I must agree that these are no where near Preppy, Ivy, or WASPY. Just because something is expensive doesn't mean that its good. I shudder to think what you would possibly wear with this shoe. What were you thinking?
those shoes are awful.
Gucci bit loafers, yes.Those things, a bit off the mark.You need to pay more attention to detail, friend.
They may not be WASP/Ivy but I think they look great.
This must be a joke, right? True Gucci tassels are not so gauche...My dad has about a million pairs. Please don't wear these!Further, what's classy about USED SHOES? I'd rather take new Cole Haans from the outlet than stinky used shoes. Maybe it's a guy thing, but us ladies would never understand such a thing!
They look rather fey. Not very masculine at all. I like a bagel with fresh lox.
in his defense the shoes are new; as he stated and evidenced by the lack of wear on the exposed sole in the picture. That being said they are pretty awful looking...
Gucci - Horesbit loafers with leather soles only please. Not these things. Ick!
They seem like decent pair of loafers. Not in the same vein as the Grayson, but Richard obviously doesn't care what category his style falls under or if it strays from WASP into the comical.They would pair well with gray flannels or worsteds, a light blue button-down pinpoint or broadcloth, dark paisley or solid tie and cashmere navy blazer. Since the "kicks" are so flashy the rest could stay subdued.At least these were an admitted eBay purchase and not pawned off as something received from a mysterious WASPy relative with a gagillion acre farm down the road from Cornell or Penn.
Uh-oh, Rich. Looks like we're in the minority here - I, too, like the shoes. I see guys all over DC wearing these (politicians and lobbyists), so it much just be a politics thing. If YOU like them, who cares? Wear 'em!
Ah , the heck with it Richard. Wear the shoes!Let's see a double knit polyester plaid golf pant from the 70's. Socks with stripes on top,multi colored polka dots on a navy blue tie,oversized collar poly buttondown shirt ,so thin practically see through ,putrid shade of salmonpink , topped off with a ridicoulous oversizedstraw hat, and wear a tie in reverse that hangsfrom the back of your neck down.You'll be a polyester wearing ,two tie sportin,gucci tassel lovin ,wheelin dealin son of a gun!!!!Wooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!
Richard,I think a person would need to see them on your feet with the proper slacks/suit to make a proper judgement. Having said this, I think the tassles, etc on the front seem a little overboard-too much going on there-too fru fru.
Wear them with pants,Richard,with pants.
