As far as I am concerned white loafers should stay in the closet at all times but if you’re going to wear them anyway, for heaven’s sake, dust them off and (shoe) polish them up after Spring equinox.
Context: I put my clip-on sunglasses in my coat pocket the other day then sat down for a car ride. Needless to say, either my body heat, hip flexion, or possibly both caused them to bend and contort. I dropped them off at Vizualis to be repaired and picked them up today.
Clerk wearing white loafers before Spring equinox, who I know fairly well and try to avoid when it comes time to choose new frames: “Hi! How are you?”
Me: “I’m well, thanks. You look good. Did you get new glasses?”
White loafers: “No, I lost weight. I’m on a diet, nothing but salads for me.”
Me: “Go figure, I’m on a diet too!”
I’m thinking we may not recognize each other next time around. One thing’s for sure, you will never, ever, catch me wearing white loafers no matter what season it is. Not even the kind with velcro straps.
