My Shoes #8 – Ferragamo Tassel Loafers

My Shoes #8 - Ferragamo Tassel Loafers

I used to hate tasseled when I was younger and mainly because the only one’s that I knew about were those classic American looking one’s that are worn by super prepsters and men over 50 (think Cole Haan pinch tassel) . But a nice European version of a tasseled is quite a great option when one wants to up his jean-inspired outfit. My pair here, by Ferragamo’s line, is a classic example of traditional tasseled loafer with a little bit of European flair. I love to pair these with my dark jeans (as shown here) and I especially start incorporating them more into my weekly rotations once the fall/winter seasons begin to creep up as the dark fits the general feel of gloomy weather. I know that tasseled loafers aren’t for everyone, considering that they are a bit of an acquired taste, but if you find yourself eye-balling a pair that are not those horrible classic American looking one’s, take a chance and most likely you won’t regret it after you see just how many things they are able to go with in your wardrobe.

  1. I noticed you cuffed your jeans with the tassel loafers. Is that because of the length/cut of the jean or for fashion purposes? I started rolling up my jeans that are straight legged when I wear fashionable shoes and converse like sneakers. Mostly levi’s I purchased and left the length as opposed to having them altered like some of my other denim. Is this style popular in England?

  2. Joseph – Purely because of length, I am not so much into that cuffing trend, not at least in the sense that it is popular where you leave a little ankle/skin/socks showing. I prefer to have my pants altered but this pair I have had so long and never got around to it, so I just left it like that. I can’t say that from what I have noticed that it is that big over here in England. I really have not seen it done that much. Thanks for reading.
