    ^ What a fantastic picture! Bundling the kids off to school, with the demented pumpkin looking on. And, as you rightly observe, the Albert slippers -- nice look.

    Those are f***ing scary pumpkins and would not have been allowed when I was a kid. And that cigarette that the pumpkin is smoking looks sort of "homemade"... <cough, cough>

    When you look quickly at the pumpkin to the far right, just behind Bobby, it looks like it has harry legs.

    I have been toying with purchasing a pair of these from B&E:


    I am however, concerned with size. Last year I purchased a pair of Tricker's (a plain navy velvet as it goes) and was advised by the Jermyn street store that slippers were small and that most people needed to go a half size up. This was true and after a painful attempt to climb into my regular dress shoe size, I found a half size up was just right.

    Q. Do B&E make slippers for Tricker's? Should I take this experience as a guide in ordering a pair direct from B&E?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    B&E don't make for Tricker,
    Were your tricker leather lined with a padded through sock or quilt lined?
    B&E don't do padded through sock so i wouldn't go half size up with theirs they are also a lower vamp depth which makes them feel looser. also when ordering direct from any company it's a good idea to give them your foot length and joint measurement, unless they are a stock item and not mto.

    Quite right, my Tricker's are leather lined with a padded through sock. Many thanks for the information!

    Do Church's still make this particular design?
    Not sure where the pic went?


    BTW I have just received for my birthday a pair of Tricker's in black velvet with the feathers (PoW) motif. As depicted in Dr D's post.

    I purchased these Church's in my regular dress shoe size following the advice I received and they are a perfect fit!

    Default size conversion

    size up and a fitting down,
    therefore you would need an english 9E.

    Has anyone ordered a monogramed or custom shoe from Deltoro? It looks like their prices have really dropped, classic at $120, monogrammed at $175 and custom at $198, with 10% off for AAAC members. However, there is a 3-6 month wait period, which seems excessive. I'm considerign ordering a pair. Any thoughts?

    Default G.J.Cleverley Slippers

    G.J.Cleverley has been doing both ready-to-wear and bespoke slippers for years. On their recently trunk shows in America they introduced several new styles of slippers, which looked great. They have started showing off their monograming abilities. They had a seahorse (hand made in silver silk) and a gold skull & cross bones (in gold wire). Daniel Day Lewis was wearing a pair of Cleverley slippers at a recent awards party in Los Angeles, which looked great.

    I will take a photo and upload my pair soon to show the forum. Also, Mr. Glasgow showed me their new 2008 dark midnight blue cashmere slipper, which looked AMAZING. I think that will be the next one I order. They felt so soft, but perhaps to luxury to wear on a regular basis.........

    Check them out on their next trip........

    Cheap trivia: Sinatra did a show with Cont Basie and his orchestra at the Sands in 1966 that has been made into a record. A slammin' record. During Frank's reparte with the audience he asks "how do you like my Mary Jane's" and references the little bows they have on the instep. He is likely talking about these exact shoes. Frank is the coolest.

    What little experience I have with Albert slippers suggest they usually fit much differently than regular shoes. I wear Church's shoes in 10F but Church's slippers in 11.

    Most english stock slippers are made on an E fitting last maybe that's why you had to go a size up if they were'nt mto.
