Spring Business With A Tassel (or two…)

Thanks, CrackedCrab

I’ve always been a big fan of tassel loafers. While not as formal as oxfords/captoes/wingtips, they are more formal than penny loafers. While I’ve seen these worn with suits (and personally think that is a fine look), I like them with dress trousers and a sport coat. Tassel loafers do more to dress up an outfit than one would think – and the ‘clack’ of the tassels lets ’em know you’re coming…

Here are some of my favorites:

The Shells

1. Polo by Ralph Lauren Darlton
2. Black Alden for Brooks Brothers
3. Cigar Alden for Leathersoul

The Suedes

4. Crockett & Jones
5. Snuff Alden for Ben Silver
6. Alden 666 Brown Suede

The Fancies

7. Crockett & Jones Black Langham
8. Barker Black
9. Crockett & Jones Tan Langham

    Great post, I think a pair of tassels will be at the very top of my "to buy" list once I secure gainful employment.ReplyCancel

    Magnificent! Tassel loafers are one of my favourite shoes. Very versatile. Footjoy used to make a good pair too.ReplyCancel

    I'm partial to C&J, but have only had one pair from J&M, Deerfield II, back in my younger days. Winsome picks…especially the Alden. I am beginning to wonder why I wear anything but great dress shoes. Each time, regardless of apparel, compliments are forthcoming. I do love my topsiders though.

    J, et all- I have the "british tan/cognac" Peal & Co tassel loafers and am always confused as to what color belt. Any thoughts? And besides "british tan/cognac" where would you procure such a number?ReplyCancel

    I'm also fan of the style because it's so formal, the perfect style when I'm going to the office, actually I'm thinking on buying one pair of every style of them.ReplyCancel
