    Maybe you need to get some tassels with foxing, Mike. Maybe the BB Tassel will go the way of the short wing and not be made special for them (Hope not!)? Go for it!

    Thanks!

    I looked for a long time and contacted various BB stores looking for either a #8 or Black Shell version in size 11B, but was unable to find any. Nothing ever popped up on eBay either. The BB store would not put me on a list to make them when I requested as well. After about a a year of looking with different levels of enthusiasm, I gave up... :)

    Don't give up hope. It's an iconic model. Tassels are not for everyone. But if you like them, the extra BB foxing is classic.

    Extra points for a Ravello, whiskey, or color 4 pair of Alden tassels.

    In case it wasn't clear, by giving up, I got the Alden Black and Color 8 Shell Tassels. Just didn't get the BB variety with the foxing detail. :)
