    So it looks like people are conflicted on these, but I wanted to see if broguing does anything to improve the look.

    They are profoundly ugly and visually offensive.

    I want a pair. Almost.

    Tassels yes. Broguing and tassels No. But I'm from New England and the Weejun is the standard here.

    I didn't actually end up buying those... And I think those were from Etsy. And this is the seller's picture, not mine.

    i dunno what/who this/he is. still think you lost out on a great pair of shoes. that's how life goes. not always fair to the ignoramus, imo. carry on. a new game, a new chance, not?

    Those hit the trifecta...kilts, tassels and broguing. They bring back fond memories of my first Allen Edmonds I bought around 1988 or so...Arlington is the model name, slip on wingtip toe, enormous kilt and tassels...I will say they could be a smidge "fussy" for some people but I like the look.
