Great Every Day Loafer
I own a few pairs of these and they have been my every day workhorse, business casual loafer. I have rotated them for the last two years and take good care of them and they have remained in excellent condition. Extremely comfortable and good looking loafers.

The gentleman who wears a pair of Brooks Brothers tassel loafers is wearing nothing short of an American institution. I do encourage you to purchase a pair in black calfskin...and then a pair in the dark brown or burgundy calf. You can order the shoes on-line and be reasonably confident that the fit will be perfect. When choosing the same shoes in cordovan leather, however, I recommend going to a Brooks Brothers store to select the pair in a perfect size. Cordovan leather does not fit like calfskin...but the distinctive qualities of the cordovan shoe are well worth your consideration Then, as a tassel loafer aficionado, you'll find yourself watching for the same shoes in the English tan calfskin and the dark brown suede; Brooks Brothers Classics one and all.

Those are great shoes and compared to their cordovan cousin, they fit well. I had the cordovan versions but always had to bring them to be streched out. Those were very comfortable when I first tried them at the store. Good job BB!

"The Brooks Brothers Classic Tassel Loafer"
This is it! The quintessential B-B Tassel loafer. I have two pair that I bought over the last 18 months. One pair in black and the second in burgundy. Both are the calfskin version. My first pair of these shoe in black lasted me ten years and were still going strong. The only problem was that my foot widened as I got older and they no longer fit. Obviously, that's not the fault of the shoe. What do I like about them? Well for starters, the QUALITY! Second the style and their truly classic good looks. Third, their durability. Don't underestimate this quality, because with proper care, these shoes will last for years. Oh, you will have to re-sole and re-heel them, but with care, those repairs can be made several times before they will need to be replaced. Some words of advice: Use good quality polish, use cedar shoes trees and let them air out for a day between wearings. They will provide many years of yeomanlike service. They look great with suits, casual trousers and even corduroys. Well done Brooks Brothers!
