Unnecessary Wants: Allen Edmonds Carlsbad Loafers
I’m not too into loafers and boat shoes as I find the low vamp a little dowdy. However, I do like the high vamp and sleek toe of these Carlsbad loafers from Allen Edmonds. The basket weave walks the tightrope between cheesy and Bottega Veneta knock-off (depends what you wear) but I think the brown calf and linen spectators would look damn sharp at a summer wedding and leave those Sperry-wearing bros sitting at the kids table. Made in the USA and they also come in black and a burnished chili brown.
