To the winner of the smart shoe of the year, beating off stiff competition from Oxford Wingtips, Brogues and Monk Straps, the Tasselled Loafer has come out on top! Why you ask? They look just as good with jeans as they do with a suit. For this reason, I've plumped for this shoe as my Smart Shoe of 2011. Although they look a bit aloof as a shoe, once you get some they are indispensable.
