Yeah proper retro; the 80s skinheads loved 'em. Well expensive as well.

A reference only understood by the nerdiest of menswear nerds. All the birds in Vodka Revolutions will just think that you're wearing your dad's shoes that he wears for working on his allotment.

I say drivers. Surely casual is the name of the game with a beach wedding.

Both will be murder when you get sand in them mind.

100% the loafers; you can't wear drivers with a suit, casual or not. You need something with a reasonably prominent heel.

Tbh, I think a suede cap toe oxford would be best if you have them

Moc toe is the whole point. Otherwise they'd look too much like a pair of Dr Martens.

i'd prob wear brown birkenstocks or some sperry topsiders with that beach wedding get up but of those two i'd go for tassle loafers on looks though i bet they won't be comfortable if it is hot and you get send in them etc
