    Nice...any polish or treatment or just straigh up wearing? Giving these a look, but worried too goldish color any thoughts? Is the patina taking away gold hues or adding to them? Looks like taking away to me. Thanks...JT

    ^^ Interesting discussion on formality of tassels, SWB, and nst. I have all three models in one or more colors. I personally wear none of them with suits. My SWB is on commando.

    my order:
    1. tassels
    2. SWB
    3. NST

    I would put SWB on a par with tassels if they had a leather sole.

    The NST is easily the most casual.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Just brushing. Need to do some edge coat but nothing else.

    Color is more olive than gold. Runs from dark olive to a lighter shade

    This shine is just insane. Do you have a horse hair buffing wheel? I don't understand how this finish is obtained without some sort of machine.

    Yeah, you sure you aren't using Lexol on your shells or something?

    +1 for the #8 PTB. It's a tough and hardy workhorse that every gentleman should have in his wardrobe.

    IMO a pair of black tassels isn't far from an opera pump. It's up there with the black cap toe or plain toe bal, and one of the few and maybe only loafer with that level of formality.
