Men’s Loafers: How to Choose the Right Ones (including Elevator Ones)

Synonymous with elegance and the good life, loafers have become an iconic piece of men’s fashion. Ideal for both business and leisure, elevator loafers have a varied appeal because of the vast range of styles and colors to suit all tastes and occasions…

When you’re choosing a pair of loafers, probably the most important factor in your decision will be the material, which can also give you an idea of the quality. No matter what type of shoe you’re buying, elevator loafers or not, the quality of the leather or suede will usually indicate a high quality craftsmanship and therefore a high quality shoe that will last.

Men’s Tassel Loafers or Penny Loafers?

The next thing to decide is the style of loafers, with men’s loafers coming in different styles, most commonly, Penny loafers and tassel loafers. Tassel loafers can be ideal for a smart, casual look and can easily be dressed up or down. For a chic, smart look they go well with your favorite pair of chinos and a blazer. The tassel style can give smarter outfits a more casual and relaxed feel.

Penny loafers work for a whole range of styles from casual to formal and can be ideal for business meetings, ceremonies or a relaxed family brunch at any time of the year. Loafers with a buckle can add a touch of elegance for more formal events. Because of the wide range of colors they come in you can find a loafer for any style or outfit, with black being an ideal choice with a black suit for formal occasions or weddings and brown being a stylish option for wearing with a variety of other outfits, including chinos.

Elevator Loafers

If there’s one way to improve a pair of trusty, stylish loafers it’s by adding a hidden height increasing system. This way you can add a few extra inches to your height without compromising on the comfort, style and appeal of the classic (traditionally flat) men’s loafer.

Now you can get the best of both worlds with men’s elevator loafers that can add an extra couple of inches to your height. Not only can they make you taller and appear slimmer, which can boost self esteem, but they also retain their elegant appearance, losing none of their original charm, as the elevator system is internal and completely hidden from view. So only you will know it’s there. 

There is a style of men’s loafers out there for everyone. Whether it’s a classic Penny loafer, a tassel loafer or even a buckled loafer, these shoes should be a must-have accessory in every man’s wardrobe. Their versatility means you can style them any way you choose. Just be careful with the socks though, as you don’t want any socks on show. And if you need a little boost in height, make sure you opt for elevator loafers to perfect your look.
