    That's exactly why, as the 10 slipper was really small & narrow.

    Just picked up these Mayers a bespoke company from Hong Kong. One of a kind embroidering.

    Just in time for the Holiday Formal parties.

    Is the consensus that RL slippers are made by EG?

    Yes. When I visitied L'Uomo in Montreal back in September, they had EG slippers with thick soles just like street shoes, not the wafer-thin soles usually seen on Albert slippers.

    Brooks Brothers slippers are made by Church's.

    Make sure to get the address correct (1452 Rue Peel), since there are several stores in the area with almost the same name. They also have the Lobb Lopez...ask to see it (perfection!).

    There is an alternative to bespoke embroidery or monogrammes. Both of my Alberts were plain when bought (one pair from Cleverleys and the other a no-name from John Rushton) but I subsequently had gold wire badges sewn on. These are commonly available from regimental PRI shops but I believe some tailors stock a supply of non-military ones. Here is a picture of one pair and I promise to sort out a photograph of the others.

    Good point. That's exactly what Belgian Shoes does with their slippers.

    True, but if you get sick of the design you can change it easily!

    Carlton Browne.

    Would it be possible to see a close up of how clean this looks? i've been wanting a pair of slippers but the options available are a little too expensive.

    this might solve a big problem


    thanks in advance!

    Sorry, was there a man in that photograph somewhere that I was supposed to notice something on :icon_smile_wink:

    But why grenadiers/fusiliers emblems particularly? Did you just like the look of them? Or did you serve in a grenadier/fusilier unit?

    Unlike the Albert slipper with a proper sole and heel giving form, I'd like a
    pair of the soft heel-less Victorian carpet slippers with Berlin work as shown on this page for mooching around the house. And preferably with similar Berlin work to those shown.

    By the way, Stubbs and Wootton is having a rather large sale right now, which I believe is 50% off any pair. There may be a code or something though.

    Wash your mouth out, Sir. I'm a sapper! They are, in fact, RE officer's beret badges. My other set are BD flashes for mess dress - on green velvet.

    I know, I know!!!!! Gotcha though!:icon_smile_wink:

    The similarity allows for wind-ups

    I wound up a Swedish engineer only a couple of months ago in the same way, now an antiques dealer and out of the Swedish army for many years, he'd been sold a British RE bugle from the First World War and I said, "but that's a fusiliers infantry emblem".

    He said "What? I thought I'd bought an Engineers bugle?"

    I said, laughing, "You did mate, you did"

    He said, "You bast......"

    Anyway, what unit?

    Bleedin' saps:icon_smile_wink:.....We used to have some major Naafi fights with 59 Field Squadron RE, usually when we bumped into them in Bulford Camp, when we came down for exercises from RAF Hullavington...happy days :icon_smile_big:

    Best regards

    What if a pair of slippers have cashmere lining (not quilted or leather)? I know, in this thread, it's been that slippers unlined with quilting should be worn with socks, but I'm not sure if the one who said this was taking cashmere into account. Should cashmere lined slippers be worn bare?
