Today’s Favorites – Gaziano & Girling Saddle Loafers

There is nothing quite like a nice loafer. They are so versatile and pleasing simply for the fact that you don’t have to bend over to tie them. I mean, what more could you really ask for? It’s laziness at its finest! If you must though, then allow me to elaborate….They go great with jeans, amazing with chinos, workable with suits, and pretty much every other trouser that you can think of….And I really never […]
