My mom really hates tassel loafers, but she doesn't post on here. I think of them as filling almost the same niche as dubmonks -- that wide middle range of formality. Maybe the tons of love for monks steals away the attention?
I'd wear the right pair of tassels a hell of a lot. I have a pair of black ones that I wear because my service industry job requires me to wear black shoes, and a pair of super tacky moc croc Florsheims that lost a tassel at some point. A really classic pair would be great.
Sometimes you see otherwise normally-laced derbies with tiny little tassels on the ends of the laces too (not my cup of tea personally), and they are also de riguer with traditional ghillies under you kilt (if you've ever worn a kilt, you may well ask what is the point of trousers?)
