All too often, the groom is left out of the loop. While it takes two to tango, the groom ironically appears left out of the loop in the bridal preparations. It’s important to remember that this is just as much about him (the groom) as it is her (the bride). An exuberant shoe, understated color palette and refined tailoring create a sophisticated and breathtaking look of excellence.
You always want to put your best and most stylish foot forward when it comes to selecting the right shoe. Loafers have an air of relaxed luxury about them that breathes effortless style.
