    I do not wear them...and have observed in court, only old Judges and lawyers in retirement age wear them.

    Though, the poll shows that more men under 50 wear them than those over 50. Of course, what it really shows is that the sample isn't random!

    I think the no-socks in this context is ridiculous, but overall it shows that tall thin people can pull off tassel loafers

    I do the no socks look with a full suit all the time, usually with linen and always with tassels. I think it irks most people.

    Ugh, I hate them. I realize I may be in the minority, but they really are ugly.

    I think they start out with the Gucci bit loafer and age into the tassel.

    I have never seen that many tassel loafers in London but I'm not working in the banking industry myself...

    I sometimes take the commuter trains and I didn't spot any...

    A lot of terrible black cheap shoes only...

    They used to be in the eighties the apanage of the well-to-do youngsters in Paris in reaction to the socialist government...

    They are too casual for a suit but as everything else if you can pull it off..

    Dear Bell - These are ones I wear and others such as Aristocrat from J&M, etc.. (I also wear oxfords, captoes, etc) [​IMG]

    **Note - been wearing loafers as a part of the 'collection' since I was 17 and could afford to buy my own clothes.

    Fixed.

    No you didn't. Go back to studying for the bar. You've got a lot to learn.

    Someone's a little sensitive. Here, the tasseled loafer is the shoe of choice for PI and defense attorneys. Thus, I'll amend it to read: "Plaintiff's or Criminal Defense attorneys' uniform. Often, these two are the same person."
