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

    62? I thought you were older...

    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.
