Sorry, I should have specified the Marlow tassel loafers.

I'm 32 and think I'm still too young for tassel loafers.

25 here, have been wearing tassel loafers for awhile. I'm planning on picking up the marlow tassels if they're 30+15 off. So no, I don't think you're too young

22, kinda like the look but wouldn't wear till I'm 30 or so

if you think you dont look good in tassels now, then you probably never will. only difference is that youll be older and just may not care anymore. lol

lol8[1].gif Probably true but only time will tell. Like a lot of stuff now I didn't like just a few years ago

I am 32 and I rock two pairs of tassels. Cordovan is to prefer.

For me the curious thing is that I used to like tassels when I was younger, now at 26 I absolutely prefer penny loafers, but not for a matter of age, just pure aesthetic.

I have and like both.  Just not with suits.

I don't understand the thought behind "I am too young to wear X". Are you afraid you'll be mistaken for a 70 year old? Not likely. Are you worried that your peers will make fun of how you dress? They probably do already. Do you think they won't look good? Then you shouldn't want to wear them at all.

No lo comprendo.

Funny, my AE shell shoes dry out so damn quickly as well. Seems like they look great for a day after Reno application then I need to do it again. Brushing between applications helps but not as much as a new application.

I have shell from all 3 - Alden, AE, and C&J (for RL).  

 

I find the C&J had the most polish on them, spewed the most upon the first few wearings, yet still has the appearance of drying out after only a few wearings.  A little Reno brightened them right up.  

 

The Aldens I have are all #8 - so they have the dye applied, and that seems to protect the shell to some extent.  After a year or so, though, they start to look dry.

 

My AEs are all over the map - I have black shell that seems so full of oils that they are still spewing after at least a dozen wears.  I have others that seem more dry, though they brighten up after a little Reno.  I think as a general rule AE applies less product to their shell than the other two - maybe that's the difference.

Couldn't wait for the sale, somebody sold a pair here for a reasonable price. Almost can't wait for my first shells! Of course, I have read at least a few hours about how to take care of shell, and Ive found out that Venetian Cream and Saphir Reno are both good to use. I have already used Reno since I joined here, bet getting Venetian to Norway seems to be an expensive affair, about 5 times the cost of the bottle itself. Is it really neede or can I live with saphir reno and the Mac method?

I think it's the same as wearing anything associated with older people. I guess that's subjective though and is just what I am seeing. From my observations, whenever I spot tassel loafers they are on gentlemen that are 40 - 50+ and this is in New York City.

I've never seen them on younger people in person, but I would figure if I did, those people just grew up wearing tassel loafers. For some reason I associate tassel loafers with New England too.
