    Summer Friday suede loafers

    Hey guys, I have a "coffee date" with a very senior exec at a major Manhattan print publishing place on Friday morning. It's casual but in that Manhattan magazine type way.

    I plan on wearing a subtle grey check jacket I bought for this purpose, along with blue Bonobos khakis. I think I would like to buy a pair of suede loafers in gray to go with this - and wear them sockless.

    I am a bigger guy, so I think a more stable less dainty looking shoe would look best. I love drivers but think they may be a little bit casual for this environment, but it is "just" a coffee date. I want to look pulled together but in a sort of easy way.

    Does anyone have options on Trask loafers in particular?

    Depends on your job. It looks ok but we have no other information about where you work, type of work, and the atmosphere.

    If you have the option for brown, I'd go for that. This looks black to me which feels more formal. Brown looks great with age and dresses up and down the spectrum when needed.

    ive seen the taft jackboot in person and really liked it. but forgot what shade it was.

    Those are both sort of dandy due to the wool? areas of the boot. For the $250, you would be better off buying another boot which would allow for more function. Make sure you have your other shoes in line before going off the deep end with a boot like this. Joe's main page post has a few boots that would better serve you in the office environment unless denim is the norm.

    I already have allen edmonds daltons, red wings, and a tan chelsea boot. I like taft shoes as they are extremely comfortable. and yes, denim is the norm.

    A coworker was wearing those shoes at my current job and i really liked them, so ive had my eye on them for a while

    I would say go for it then. If it were the standard wool trousers and button up shirt environment then I would say stay away but it sounds like there is a lot of variability. That said, both colors look fine. I have been looking at All Birds for some casual wool shoes but have not made a purchase yet...I don't know what is holding me back.

    I'd go with the oxblood since you already have some tan chelsea boots.
