The Tassel Loafer Spectrum

Styling Tip

For a casual spring look, wear these with colored chinos and a short-sleeve madras shirt, untucked.

Believe it or not, tassel loafers are one of the most versatile shoes a man can own. Whether worn casually with cuffed jeans or chinos without a break, or more dressed-up with a khaki or navy suit, they transition between work and play pretty easily. A tan suede pair is a welcome addition to any man's wardrobe, but you can't go wrong with a nice leather version either. To get you prepped for spring, here are some of the best on the market, in a range of prices:

Bass, $99

This is a classic loafer with true handsewn moccasin construction and leather outsoles.

Cole Haan, $168

A versatile offering crafted from soft tanned leather with the added benefit of Nike Air technology.

Allen Edmonds Grayson, $335

They've been getting it right for years with a full leather lining, a stacked leather heel and a Goodyear welted outsole.


Sebago, $135

Handsewn construction with an oil-treated leather outsole, rubber heel and patented welt construction.

H by Hudson, $215

A smooth, round-toe and side lacing through metal eyelets give a younger look to an old favorite.

Alden, $590

A luxe interpretation in genuine shell cordovan, made in America with Alden's comfortable (and recraftable) flex welt.
