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.

Regards,

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.

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).
