Slip-ons are typically low, lace-less shoes. The style most
commonly seen, known as a loafer or slippers in American culture,
has a moccasin like construction. Loafers are worn in many situations in a
variety of colors and designs, often featuring tassels on the front, or metal decorations
(similar to the 'Gucci' loafer). A tassel is a finishing feature
in fabric, footwear, and clothing decoration. It is a universal ornament that
is seen in varying versions in many cultures around the globe.
One of the common variations of the basic style is the
tassel loafer, which emerged in the 1950s. Brooks Brothers
and Alden Shoe Co collaborated to produce the popular tasseled loafer. Originally
a bespoke commission by actor Paul Lukas who liked the tasseled shoelaces on a pair
of Oxfords. Tassels held in place by a leather strand.
Again, though casual, their gradual acceptance among the
American East Coast prep school culture as equivalent to brogues (wingtips), has
led to them being worn there with suits, where they gained an association with business
and legal classes.
Kilted loafters also have a tassel some times. Kiltie’s
have been fashioned upon brogues and Oxfords by Scottish ghillies, Kings, golfers
and MODS for over 100 years. The loafer got kilted in the 1950s when Kiltie golf
shoes and penny loafers were at their fashion zenith.
In the Hebrew Bible, the Lord spoke to Moses instructing
him to tell the Israelites to make tassels (Hebrew tzitzit) on the corners of their
garments, to help them to remember all the commandments of the Lord and to keep
them (Numbers 15:37-40), and as a sign of holiness.
