    Smart man!

    You have a most excellent collection, by the way.

    About darn time Danny! You have a great collection, without question. How do you like the Bow-Te brand? Do they fit true to size?

    This has to be some of the most ridiculous footwear ever designed, of limited, if any, practical utility or value...

    ...he says after spending half an hour on the Smythe and Digby site building some in red velvet with violet lining and a gold skull and crossbones...and thinking, one really needs more than one color/emblem options in one's collection...and well, $250 really isn't that bad.

    No, I didn't order, but the shoes are now haunting me.
    Has counted to infinity...twice.

    Damn you, I said damn you! This thread made me buy a pair of Albert slippers. Now I just have to wait 8-10 weeks. That is the "damn you" part of it.

    I bought them from Shipton & Heneage. Plain navy velvet with red lining.

    Thank you, Michael. As for the Bow-Tie brand, I love them. I have never had any problems with their shoes. And yes, I have found that they do fit true to size. Of course, one has to convert the UK size to US. I was told by the Bow-Tie folks that pretty soon their shoes can be purchased from their website. They have a lot of different choices.

    This is in the category of total extravagance, and so awaits funding and is in competition with a Hamilton 992 pocket watch. But until both issues are resolved, a question...

    It seems a distinguishing characteristic of this class of footwear is a leather sole, and I have seen some adverts mentioning "hard leather sole". What are the soles like? Will I be clacking around on my hardwood floors or padding about and softly sliding along?

    I am currently under consideration to chair my department. I don't particularly want the position, but I if I am offered and accept it, I imagine purchasing a pair of such slippers in Royal Blue or something similar to Papal Red to signify my authoritah!

    ^^^^ It is with great relief and only the mildest disappointment that I report that I was soundly defeated by my opponent for the nomination. So, I need only shop for one pair of slippers, now.

    The soles on all of mine are leather and they feel and wear just like any of my other shoes. The soles on the shoes from Brooks Brothers that I have are not as thick as the ones from Bow-Tie or Magnanni but they hold up just as well for daily use.

    ^^^^ Thanks.

    Wondering, now, if I can get a pair by Thanksgiving for my annual "orphan" students dinner.

    I've always liked the white sock with low vamp slippers/loafers look.
