I turned 30 last year and felt the urge to buy a pair of tassels. I purchased the Alden for Brooks Brothers color 8 shell cordovan tassel loafers. I like this shoe very much. The aberdeen last works very well for my feet and I find the shape to be appealing to the eye. I have tried wearing with a suit, but I much prefer to wear them with flannel pants and a navy sport coat. I find they fit me better than the full straps because of the higher vamp.
I am looking forward to tracing down a pair in Ravello. Mac has inspired me once again.
