I just bust out laughing.
Hi Guys this is my first post, im 46 years old been wearing tassles since i was a teenager, still wear them, some younger guys seem to be wearing them here now, esp the more modern designs.
Just turned 27. Three years ago, I was more into the bit loafer thing (Gucci and Ferragamo) with a sleek penny loafer on the side. The past few months, I have added two tassel loafers in cordovan (Ralph Lauren and Alden) in dark brown and ravello brown. The shoes get a lot of positive attention. I wear the Aldens mostly for business (suits, slacks, etc) and wear the Ralph Laurens with everything (suits, chinos, jeans, etc). I find tassels a step up from the normal bit loafers you see around hre.
i wont wear them all the time but i enjoy tassle loafers quite abit
I think it is more of a question of personal sartorial journey than pure simple demographics....
I used to like them when I was in my mid-twenties and now I can't stand them...
I don't really know...
I am 19 years old and bought my first pair of tassel loafers last week.
I'm 55 y.o. and I have both black and burgundy Alden tassels (and a pair of cordovan full-strap loafers as well).
Just turned 19 and I use them when it's nice weather in my usually cold country.
25, big tassel fan. My favorite loafer design, really.
So do I. I have a pair in brown suede which i use during the summers. If you are 19 and are rocking tassles, you will get some remarks.Good and bad remarks. Mostly good ones. However I enjoy them too much too care about people sticking it to me.
44 and I wear my AE Grayson's on occasion.
53 - and no - hate them in general. although occasionally an exception appears.
45, finally got a couple of pairs recently...AE Saratogas in a brown color, AE Brookwoods in Chili, and some store-brand from Bennie's in a light brown with contrasting(darker) laces and tassels, I think they are made by FootJoy, 1970s-era, I think.
