Tassels carries shoes from well-known brands such as Crockett & Jones, Alden, Edward Green and Bontoni. Their wide selection offers men the convenience of not having to travel very far to buy a good pair of shoes, however, I must note that the prices are quite high. The sky-high rent in Hong Kong must be the culprit.

Wallace, the manager of Tassels, was busy shining shoes when I visited the store on a Friday afternoon. I was looking to buy a pair of double monk straps and he assisted me in trying on a pair of Crockett & Jones Lowndes. First he measured my feet with a Brannock device and then gave me a pair in UK 9. The length was all right but fit tight around the instep of my foot so I asked for a half-size larger. The larger size fit better but Wallace advised that there was excess leather around the foot and was not a good overall fit. Advice like this is invaluable if you’re spending a significant amount. I did not end up buying a pair of shoes from this store but I bought polish, creme, and shoe brush by Saphir for my Carmina Double Monk Strap. I also picked up a pair of green laces for my brogues. Wallace also gifted me a store-branded polishing cloth which was a very nice gesture.
