    Aberdeen fits tts although I suspect many might prefer a wide fit. I'm tts 12D and take same size in Aberdeen. It's become my favorite Alden last because of the minimal creasing

    Tassels and suits were made for each other - for some people. :D Don't get me wrong, it can look fine, I just don't feel comfortable doing it.

    And ....

    I find slip-ons - by their very design - inherently casual (sometimes business casual, of course, but casual nonetheless).

    Traditional rules of fashion dictate that slip-ons (tassels, full strap, LHS, etc.) not be worn with suits. While I do not follow all traditional rules of fashion, this rule I do adhere to. Others don't, and I can respect that. :fistbump:

    If I want Alden tassels but don't fit into Aberdeen loafers, am I out of luck? Any tassels made in the more generous lasts (Grant, Hampton, etc?)

    Gentlemen, asking for your advice...

    Has anyone of you experience how long it usually takes Leather Soul to answer to emails (to their [email protected] address)? I sent them a message about two days ago and haven't heard anything yet. By now I think my mail might have been marked as spam by their system as I put a link (to a pair of shoes on their website) in it, and some systems tend to filter out mails with links from unknown senders as spam. I am thinking now about sending the mail again without the link, but don't want to bother them with several inquiries about the same thing in case it's normal for them to take some time with the answer.

    Thanks,
    DBate

    uncle,
    They are coming from J. Crew. I got them with the 30% off so figured I wouldn't bother them with a second return. First pair only had one bent down speedhook though, should have stuck with that one!

    I have not had great luck emailing leather soul. if you've got questions, you're better off calling.
