The Statement Loafer: The Thing Speaks For Itself

The Spring and Summer months are all about adding more color to your wardrobe. Some people prefer to add a pop of color to their outfit with ties and pocket squares. Meanwhile, others gravitate towards bolder suits and jackets.

This year, I’ve decided to incorporate some bolder shoes into my rotation because shoes have always been the cornerstone of every man’s wardrobe.

Therefore, I partnered with Res Ipsa to show you how to rock a pair of statement loafers this season!

Just like any other statement piece, it’s best to keep your outfit simple while wearing bold footwear. By doing so, you will make sure that the shoes stand out on their own.

After all, the Res Ipsa name comes from the Latin phrase res ipsa loquitur meaning, “the thing speaks for itself.”

In a previous post, I mentioned that I will be attending Pitti Uomo 92 in Florence, Italy. Since this will be my first time in Europe, I’ll also be making stops in Rome, Milan, and Paris. Therefore, these shoes will definitely be coming with me because they’re ideal for traveling.

Not only are they extremely comfortable but they’re also lightweight and super easy to pack.

However, the thing that I appreciate most about these loafers is the fact that no two pairs are the same because they’re constructed from vintage hand-woven Turkish rugs!
