Five Best: Tassel Loafers

27 Feb

While some may be waiting patiently for the first sign of any sun so that they can rush to the depths of their wardrobes to haul out the deck shoes they spent all last summer wearing, don’t act in haste. The deck shoe may have been massive last summer, but footwear in Spring/Summer ’11   is all about the tassel loafer.

We’ve mentioned tassel loafers a lot here on HIGHMAN previously, but for us they are a natural progression for the slip on shoe. And if you can’t just wait until the summer months to don them, there are a few ways you can get one step ahead of the weather.

A hard soled tassel loafer is a timeless classic and will look great with a suit or a shirt and smart trouser combo at any time of year.

A soft sole will provide a casual look, perfect for evenings chilling out at the pub. During the cooler spring wear them with woollen socks and slightly rolled up slim cut jeans or carrot fit chinos. And when the hot weather finally rears its head, forget the socks and roll ‘em chinos up even higher.

Here’s five great tassel loafers, all a snip at under £50 a pair.

Topman, £50 (also available in black)

Zara, £49.99

ASOS Was £40, Now £32
