Black hatched calfskin tassel loafers with split toe apron stitch.
The Tradizione Collection is the highest end of our line-up. Hand-lasted, hand-welted and sewn by hand, it features our signature narrow waist fiddleback "violino" solo and metal toe taps. It's the very exact correspondent of our Sixpence Bespoke, but made on one of our Ready to Wear lasts.
The tassel is most probably an invention of a northern European fisherman that needed to grab laces with gloves on. The fame of the tassel loafer, though, can be pinpointed to 1942 when the Hungarian actor Paul Lukas started wearing them in states.
Part of our Tradizione Collection, these shoes come with individual wool dust bags, lasted wooden shoe trees and our leather maintenance kit with wax and small brush and a real shoe-horn, all in a beautiful wooden box for proper storage.
Material: American Calfskin
Product Code: T1210
Stefano Bemer’s signature and most recognizable last is the J, which elegantly and sensually enhances the curve of the instep towards the ball line. The elongated nose, elevated instep, generous ball line (close to an E) and slim toe box give this last a contemporary look without diminishing its elegance.
