    Tassel loafers are probably the most trendy shoe for men at this particular moment in time. Did anyone notice?

    I'm 30 now and so far just can't do it. I think the bit loafers would probably work into the rotation before the tassel ones.

    It all depends on where you live. I personally wouldn't wear shoes like those, but I know plenty of people here in Boston that certainly would.

    I have them in brown, black and #8 shell. I prefer the BB variation, which has the stitching in the back, to the Aldens. I'd love to have a suede pair, too, but they're hard to find for my skinny feet.

    As for the original question, I'm in my 50s, but I've been wearing them for 25+ years

    People on Styleforum are willfully ignorant of trends, but I guess that is what makes them so "stylish" rather than fashionable.

    Anyway, over the last year, tassel loafers have been extraordinarily fashionable with all sorts of new version coming out like this:

    I'm 27 and I started wearing tassel loafers last year, just before I turned 26. I'm completely comfortable with them.

    I even wear burgundy tassel loafers with pink socks.

    Are you having a laugh or what?

    I will prefer drinking my own urine than wearing those monstruosities in public.
