If you wear TASSEL loafers, what is your age?? - Page 15

I'm 25, these are my only pair.

They were a plain caramel brown. I used green, blue and dark brown shoe cream followed by a mirror shine with wax. The nice vintage look came from very few wearings and I'm very fond of it:)

Tassels remain a relatively niche pursuit in the UK, perhaps more commonly seen on suede loafers, or sported by salesman types.

Personally not for me.

Im 22 and I prefer the alden full straps - i have one in burgundy calf and one in black cordovan. I think the tassels do look a little out of place on someone in their 20s but as mentioned if you are tall and on the slender side, you can pull it off.

I wore tassel loafers for a while in the early 70's as an early prep/ Ivy revival look (Bass Weejuns). Then again in the late 80's to early 90's black Italian loafers along with contemporary Italian suits, ties and shirts . After a long dry spell and an anti-tasseI loafer attitude, I bought my most recent C&J (British) suede loafers. Every single time I wear them men and women in their late 20's stop me to comment on them.

I may have to try the tassel because the full straps seem to run larger. My dad gave me his black shell cordovan ones but they gap

and slip on my feet a lot

Did anyone find that the full straps gap on them and run larger in size? I wear 11D in all other loafers I own but these were handed down to me and are really loose in the heel but no so much the front part.
