Tassels for Shoes

I had the great pleasure of finally meeting someone whose reputation has preceded him as a giant of passion and knowledge in shoes this week - Wallace from Tassels in Hong Kong. Although only a young man, his taste, knowledge and eye in shoes are second to none. If you are going to Hong Kong, visit this young man, for Alden, Bontoni, Crockett & Jones or Edward Green.

  1. Agreed, young Mister Wallace does know his stuff, I mentioned a pair of shoes (limited edition from another maker) that I bought 6 years earlier and he described them exactly! Always great to deal with a knowlegable chap that seems to enjoy his profession. Makes buying shoes even more of a pleasure.

  2. Always happy to link to a great blog, keep up the great posts and if I ever find myself in Sydney I will definitely take you up on that offer of a glass of whiskey.

    Have a nice day!

  3. i see youve met a friend of mine ! did you get anything in hk ethan?

  4. Hey Ed - I bought a shell coin purse, but that is all.


  5. Allow me to add to the praise of Wallace. I'm eagerly waiting on a pair of Alden brogues that I ordered from Tassels last month. Wallace is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but that rare breed who appreciates heritage while making it relevant and a part of contemporary culture. Highly recommend a visit to Tassels for anyone in Hong Kong.
