Summer Loafers

With Summer in full force, it’s a sad reality that we can’t wear flip flops 24×7.  In fact, you shouldn’t.  Men should know how to dress up a summer look, as we should all aspire to be one of the best dressed in the room.  Instead of trotting out your old, tired, beat up loafers, […]
