    Silence your illicit tongue, knave. This is not the place for your youthful tomfoolery.

    Thank you, I particularly like Alden's take on the tassel loafer.



    Thank you, I agree.


    Good luck! Now just decide whether to get the alden or brooks brothers version (the bb version has foxing on the heel)


    Thank you!

    There are some legal circles (i.e. NYC) that view the black (or color 8) tassel moc as a must-have to a lawyer's wardrobe. I wish I can remember where the article I read on this came from, but it did suggest that the tassel moc was a standard part of an NYC lawyer's "uniform." To each his own my friend.... No need to be hostile. That said, I agree with everything you posted.

    nephew,
    from my experience, in the 1960's and 1970's the bb version of the tassel in both #8 and black were seen in both the white shoe law firms and the investment bankers

    I'd say trouser fit often comes across less than accurately in the shoe-centric photos on this thread. It's a hazard of the photo style.

    Still a good thing you didn't post in the pants thread, anyway. :)

    And the LHS look very nice in cigar. I'm really a fan of these in all the colors.

    Uncle Mac how many times have the revello ptb been worn and how old are they?

    They look fresh out of the factory.

    Awesome color on your Ravello PTB Uncle Mac. Are these a C width? They look sleeker than usual or may be just the photography.

    Last night I channeled my inner Mac and did some work on my whiskey PTBs. Not as stellar as Mac's Ravello but I'm pretty happy with the results:
