To tassel or not...

I like loafers without applications in all their forms and manifestations- more formal or sporty- and even at times wear them in winter: C&J, Alden, N&L, k&k Schumanufaktur Alt Wien (C&J from old Viennese lasts, I believe?) or the softer ones by Tod's or Sebago or Timberland- in suede, or plain or even grained, either bordeaux, or brown or black- especially from shell cordovan. I'm in the middle of my thirties and European so I may be excused when thinking that tassel-loafers are something for hip (New England) Americans or- generally- men above 40. Yet, strolling around the city, yestereve -masochistically taking notes for a poem about snobbing all the mediocre weekend revellers-, I saw these in a shop-window, and they strangely intrigued me...I'll have to think about it...

They're beautiful, as all tassel loafers are.

But they're black. Do they fit in your wardrobe?

That is the question.

I guess so, but good question...maybe with the grey flannel trousers or an Armani suit or even dark-blue jeans? But you're basically right: as far as I could see from your posts you are maybe more business and US-style whereas I am always and perpetually situated between the academia and art which is maybe less formal (also character and personality comes into play there)...I think I could give it/them a try, though.
