Made popular by Justin Timberlake during his performance of ‘Suit and Tie’ in an iconic black and white tuxedo, Tom Ford black & white loafers are a perennially slick choice for a pop-swank look. Pair these sophisticated shoes with a black or white suit for a classy ensemble that displays your suave sartorial sensibilities.
In the music video of the smash-hit ‘Suit and Tie’, JT chose to pair these elegant loafers with his suited and booted get-up. Following the video, the shoes rocketed into the lofty heights of mass-appeal, with sales of loafers increasing to new levels. Justin Timberlake is also known to wear plain white loafers, further adding to the allure of this smart and trendy footwear.
Also a favourite with Jay Z and Drake, the Tom Ford brand enjoys celebrity endorsement from many, star-studded quarters. With this, a brand initially intended to be high-brow and genteel— via American hip-hop’s appropriation—has morphed into a status symbol of wealth and success.
