When did coloured loafers, or as they’re pretentiously referred to ‘driving shoes’, ever become part of mainstream men’s fashion, and more importantly why? Surely this is merely a trend for those in a mid-life crisis who want to assert their youth again by wearing garish colours or Eurotrash playboys? This theory is confirmed by the brand Fin’s who specialise in brightly coloured slip-ons. As the story goes Alex Finlay designed these loafers for her playboy friends, naming them after desirable jet-set hotspots such as Portofino, St. Tropez, Hamptons, you get the idea.
With ten brash colours to choose from, you too can look like a fat balding self-made nightclub-owner who has just stepped off a yacht in Capri. Just accessorise with white jeans, pink open necked shirt, and glowing sunburn to match.
