J Crew’s Darby patent loafers (09386, $168) come in black and soft desert, in half sizes from 6-10.5 & 11.
Size 7.5 – soft desert – It’s a nice neutral, but not dark or light enough to contrast w/my skin tone.
I think these are gonna show wrinklage. Not only at the toe area, but in other parts of the patent.
I thought about exchanging them for black. However, I think the black would show toe crease just the same as the lighter ones.
It’s a great color, but I think it’s a little too close to my skin tone. The patent makes a little more contrast, but not quite enough.
