I haven’t broken in my driving Mocs yet, and the penny loafers I have tend to run more on the casual side.

I gotcha. I’ve worn the Advantage chinos with these loafers, and just bought some shorts, navy and tan.

It is a classic Trad look in the summer, especially in the south and on the Eastern seaboard. As the days get warmer and then hotter it is sensible to wear more comfortable clothing. There is also a certain group that find this to be the perfect outfit for Guccis. I like the sockless Gucci look better on young guys trying to look sophisticated than I do on guys of my age pretending they are young, but hey, that’s just me.

So the shorts and loafers go together in your opinion?

TKI67, definitive and canonical as always.

I would only add that south of the Mason-Dixon Line, you aren't doing it quite right unless it is with a PRL multi-colore pony OCBD
