Though we'd be fools to suggest that the weather's beginning to warm, we're free to dream. And, given that Esquire currency consists of shoes, suits and sweaters, it's no surprise that our summer dreams have taken the form of these oxblood penny loafers by Sebago.
Team with a pair of slim fit chinos, a chambray shirt, a thin knit in a shade of navy or forest green and a blazer or work jacket in a slightly paler shade and you're in business. Here are a few looks to get you started...
