    I know they're not really anything special but I bought these vintage Allen Edmonds, nassau pattern (shark skin?) on ebay for $40. Do you like them better with or without the original tassles?

    Interesting shoes and $40 looks like a good price. Nice pick-up!

    Definately they look better without the tassels.

    I'm tempted to vote for the tassels. Might as well go whole hog.

    Sorry to disagree but I think that they're quite unique especially considering most of today's offerings.

    I don't know about the tassels since they appear to be black.

    Seconded. In this case they seem to work.

    Great shoes at a great price for shark-skin which should last forever.

    Great shoes, really interesting look. But to me tassels are to shoes what black is to suits for most of you guys--a big HELL NO!

    I'm pro-tassels. But then I'm in sales. Everyone knows that we sales guys love our tassels (and that really appears to be true).
