"According to this threak," I don't speak for anyone else, but IMHO yes to all of the above! It's subjective, man. Your world, your style. I think it's a great shoe that is "nice, dressy but casual, comfortable, relaxed, American, great." I don't wear them to the beach or the boardroom, but also I never visit any boardroom.

I have a pair of brown Allen Edmonds Maxfield Tassel loafers. I'm 22 (will be 23 later this year) and dangit, I like my tassel loafers and will be wearing them proudly through the summer/fall!

ShallRecoverAll, welcome to Styleforum and congratulations on being independant of what others may say.

I took some abuse when I was in my 20's for wearing tassles but wore and enjoyed mine just to spite them. I still wear them.
Tassled loafers probably won't be the first pair of shoes most men will buy. One can be rest assured that a high majority of SF gents already own all the essential shoe stylings and enjoy their tassles for fun. Either that or he really likes tassles. I wore my AE Graysons today and still lovin' them.

I dunno how I feel about them in a vacuum, but once something becomes a wardrobe staple for overweight middle managers who want to pretend they're playing CEO, I don't find any appeal.

Big blousy french blue shirt, red/yellow power tie, billowing khakis and tassel loafers - probably have their cell phone clipped to their belt too. You've all seen it, and it sucks every time.

Look on the bright side, if they have their cell phones clipped to their belts, the microwave radiation will probably sterilize them within 5 years.
On the other hand, if you are right about this then please be careful not to make fun of their shoes for these ones may well be Untersturmführers bucking for promotion. They also like to watch The Apprentice and haul people into the boardroom because it is almost as much fun as wearing tassled loafers.

I have just one pair, an Alden burgundy. But my dad probably had every pair from every brand back in the day.

Absolutely. Every single time:

I am 23, and wear brown, suede tassel loafers. Those who can't stand them, have some deep, physiological issues, IMO.
