Tassel Loafers

Once again, I’m in the mood for some new shoes… I’d like to get a new pair of tassel loafers.  Tassel loafers are classic, and one just can’t go wrong with them.  They scream prep/trad/ivy (whatever the hell camp you want to belong to).  I’d love to drop about $400 on some Aldens, but that’s just not a good idea with my limited income.  But I can still dream… I’ll most likely end up with some Cole Haan Pinch Air Tassels.  The price point is right, and you can’t beat that Nike Air technology.  But I haven’t totally made up my mind, so these are the tassels I like:

Cole Haan

Bass

Allen Edmonds (price is getting a bit high with these…for me)

Alden (for the hell of it)

I love the “smack” the tassel makes as it slaps against the shoe while walking… it’s going to be perfect.

  1. I’ve seen lots of Alden tassel loafers in pretty good condition on Ebay. That could be an option if you’re willing to pick up some kicks with a little character already worn in.

  2. Oh I’ve been on the lookout! As of right now, they only have 2 pairs of Aldens listed in my size, but neither have tassels. Patience is not a virtue of mine when I want to buy something. Haha!

  3. Patience friend, Patience. BOth my tassel calf and cordovan penny came from ebay and were the deals of a century.

    Know your size and what you want, then wait for it happen.

  4. Maybe I’ll just grab the first decent pair of Alden loafers I find on eBay in my size, tassels or not… I know nothing beats a good quality pair of shoes, and Alden is tops with that.
