    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.

    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.

    I hate tassel loafers with a passion. Most awful shoe ever made.

    I bought a well made pair of Cole Haan hand sewn tassle loafers made in Italy in the '80's and never wore them. My subconscious knew better.

    Once I joined Styleforum and learned about style, I cut the tassles off.
