    I wore them when I was 16. I wear different tassels now, at 62, both pair suede.

    62? I thought you were older...

    Where is the ZON is coming from in your screen name?

    Allen Edmonds Saratogas over twenty years old.
    Don't wear them much, but they still look fine.

    These two pair of tassel are ok...

    I quite like the suede ones for a casual chic environment.

    ^^ Great looking tassels - love the tan for a casual look. I've got a couple of pairs myself - Alden burgundy shell and black calf, but won't mind a tan calf or suede.

    I think it's more the last than the tassels.

    I am fifty one and have been wearing tasseled loafers since I was twenty. I have several pairs, the oldest being a very sleek pair from Tricker's in a snuff suede. I special ordered them in 1988 and they still have their original soles and heals. The price was eighty five dollars.

    I have only one pair very similar to the ones you posted and I am currently 42, I have worn tassles in the past in my 20's and 30's but I would say that they don;t quite look right on a man who is too young, it makes him appear as if he's trying to look older then he really is.
