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!

We’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.
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.
I 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.
