    Just took delivery of these, from AFPOS

    A steal at $150 shipped.

    Not sure I'd call them burgundy, more a very dark brown, with a reddish tinge. They fit well enough, although I'll have to wear thick socks. Still, I bought them for winter, so that's OK.

    Only a day of the month display. Still a PITA to reset them every other day. I end up not wearing them at all.

    That's unbelievably good! Congratulation!



    Depends on your office environment. What's yours like? If you really love them then get them and wear them on weekends if they don't fit in your office.

    Lieeeeees!

    I've seen someone wearing them in the office before. He also wears Jos A Banks suits. So now I assume anyone who wears tassel loafers to be a Merkin.

    fxh,
    He wants tassels, I'm selling penny loafers - not sure how you see a conflict of interest there.

    In a country where the norm seems to be square-toed monstrosities cladding the feet of otherwise well-dressed men, is a nice pair of tassel loafers really all that bad especially if the man really loves it?

    It's the perception of a conflict of interest that matters.

    Yeah, right! I'm truly confused. [​IMG]

    This was the question:
    This was my answer:

    Quote: I happen to have a pair of my loafers for sale. How is there even a perception of conflict of interest? I think that's a pretty big stretch and I'd be genuinely surprised if .

    That's like saying saying that ColdEyedPugilist (for example) shouldn't give an answer like I did if the original poster asked about Drake's ties just because CEP happens to be selling one.

    :smarmy:




    On tassel loafers, I always thought those things are too old-man-ish especially with more traditional styling, calf leather and welted, unless you go all out with it (not with number of tassels like Louboutins mind you).

    I mean something thats really FU like these:

    And if worn without socks fxh will wet himself with excitement.
