One loafer above all others

“Do you think we can charge more for this space if we include Lincoln in the name and use up some good will from Lincoln Park? What about something like Lincoln Yards?”

I’m curious as to how that’s going to turn out. I’m sure they’re using Hudson Yards as a model both in naming it that and design. Of course, New Yorkers aren’t all that fond of HY so let’s hope the LY developer learns a lesson and keeps it more grounded.

We put "Lincoln Yards" in the title, and Rahm will find a billion or two of taxpayer dollars to throw at the stylefourm.

I personally like the contrast between the wearer and his clothes.

I think guys who are in their 30s and 40s can look great in tassels because it's somewhat unexpected, so long as the rest of the outfit isn't too #menswear. But in a classic, tailored outfit, there's something charming about a younger guy in an older man's shoe.

I feel the same way about feminine things. Belgian loafers can look really good on very masculine guys cause it softens their edge. There's a bit of play between the daintiness of their shoe and the ruggedness of their build/ appearance.
A perspective from the City Of London. Black tassel loafer is an acceptable shoe to wear here, funny enough , it s more of a younger man thing (20-30s) while the more mature men wear black or burgundy penny loafer looking shoes (not a real penny loafer). I wear tassel loafers quite often and for disclosure sake I'm 41.

That's very wierd to read Duke Santos here who calls himself a Chicagoan and talk about North Shore guys and the club but somebody born and raised across the street from Lincoln Park, then Rogers Park and Evanston, then Lake Forest doesn't recognize North Shore North Side Chicago Lake Michigan in Duke's sociological decrees. With all due respect, Duke's soul swings like carpetbagger University of "Chicago". North Shore North Side Lake Michigan feels all these styles of loafers have each their own iconic beauty to be worn by anybody anytime. Duke may be riding high somewhere on Sheridan Road some of the time but his soul is behind those gates in Hyde Park on the other Side of town, no offense intended.
I was born in Bridgeport and my first house was Back of the Yards. I lived on the S Side until i left town. Tassel loafers are perfect for North Shore country clubs. Richard J Daley in tassel loafers? Never! Rahm in tassel loafers? Maybe, when he isn’t wearing Gucci horsebit loafers or ballet slippers.

BTW, many Chicago natives go to the U of C. Studs Terkel for example. I have no idea what Studs wore on his feet, but somehow i can’t imagine him in tassel loafers.

I tend to only wear loafers in a more casual setting, and like the simplicity of venetian loafers. These are my pair in cordovan and I think they go well with a sports jacket and slacks or chinos.

Bridgeport native neglects to mention Machine boss Richard Daley was from South Side, is very confused about New Yorker Studs who relocated to study at Rockerfeller's University of "Chicago" like murderers Leopold and Loeb, all presumably wore finest Florsheim of Horween with or without tassle.

There's a guy who used to post on watchuseek forums who would buy "backups" for his Rolex. Literally would just buy a duplicate of his same watch. I think he had 3 or 4 pairs like that.
Some of the collections you see on there or on the Rolex forum are sort of hilarious. Guys have 20 subtly different versions of the same watch, usually a bunch of Subs.
