I've always been inspired by the way surfers dress: super laid-back yet highly functional. So, I took note the other night at an art opening in Montauk when a former pro surfer from Kauai showed up in a t-shirt, trousers and a curveball pair of old-school black penny loafers without socks. I knew then and there that I would have to get my own pair and wear them with everything (like above). They'd need to look like the Bass Weejuns I used to wear in the '80s, but are now difficult to find (one source here). I discovered these other good options from  Johnston and Murphy and Tod's.
