This is a 15 year old pair of loafers that started out black with a tassel. Now after a bit of work they are Dark Brown/Burgundy with a little antiquing (although it is hard to see in the picture). Two questions; would you wear these and if so with what? I'm on the fence in regards to the low vamp and how that looks from a style standpoind among other things. Thanks for any input.

Hmm I actually like them without a tassel. Although they still look completely black. And yes I'd wear them with anything. Are they an older style of Alden (does Alden ever discontinue anything?)

They are actually Cole Haan. The photo is using a cell phone. I can't get the color to come out, but it's similar (I use this loosely) to EG's Dark Oak in person.
