From memory, most of English-made tassell loafers have a more rounded toe, rather than a chiselled toe, so a European maker might be a better bet.
I don't know if they will be to your taste, but these Sutor Mantellassi loafers from Ian Daniels at Shop the Finest are an excellent deal:
You are quite correct, the Sutor Mantellassi's represent great value. Have you had much experience with them? I've eyed off a few pairs online, but l have not heard much feed back off this forum.
I love these from The Armoury http://www.thearmourystore.com/shoes/gaziano-girling-kn14-antibes-oak but they are well and truly over my budget! However l can get something similar with a tassel and half the price l will be clicking heels
Sutor's are fantastic quality for the price. All of the pairs I have handled have been finished well with decent leather. Some do tend to be on the narrower side due to the aggressive styling, so be careful with sizing, especially since your size in loafers and oxfords tends to differ anyway.
Another alternative is the C&J Sydney, nice elongated shape.
