Tasselled loafers have been on our radar for yonks now, and this summer saw deck shoes really break into mainstream menswear but are we ready for a hybrid?

ASOS seem to think so with their fringe tie deck shoe, it has all the retro casual of a deck shoe with the dandy addition of a tassel. As if that wasn’t enough it also features a kiltie, we are big fans of the little fringed tab! What do you think? Take our poll and let us know!

French Connection navy deck shoe

boat shoe deck french connection.jpgWe’ve said it before, but deck shoes are the best choice for this summer. Flip flops are too scruffy and although canvas shoes are a good staple they’ve become a little ubiquitous.

You might remember the slightly dodgy Office deck shoe I wrote about last week, these deck shoes from French Connection (£50) are much more the kind of thing you should be aiming for.

The navy and weathered black colours are much more modern than fusty brown and look great with jeans and khakis alike. Even better, deck shoes go really well with shorts perfectly straddling the divide between smart and casual. Just don’t go popping the collar of your polo shirt if you don’t want to look like an idiot.

Office brown deck shoe

deck shoe brown office.JPGI know we’re pretty hot for deck shoes at the moment but I didn’t mean these monstrosities. Something about the overlong vamp and safe brown really creeps me out. It’s like I’ve been flung into a fashion black hole and spat out somewhere in Clapham or Putney.
If you’re going to give deck shoes a punt (LOL! …Sorry) make sure they are navy or an acid bright and check that the vamp is a bit shorter than Henry Conway’s parliamentary expenses.
