I have to say, I have come to love much of the Trad attire out there, sacks, OCBDs, Striped Ties, Tweed, Corduroy, boat shoes, and even some split toes. The one thing I can't seem to get a grip on however are the tassel loafers. Where did these originate? Why are they considered Trad? Why do so many of you like them so much? I just think they look silly, especially with a suit/blazer and tie (please don't shoot me)...whats the deal?
