    Can someone please identify the style of these slippers? I won them on eBay recently. The slippers come in a Brooks Brothers plain blue box. From Purple Label. 100% cashmere. Flat suede sole. Noticeable vamp. Does this mean it's an Albert slipper or some sort of hybrid? I believe, on this thread or another slipper related thread, someone mentioned "Berlin" to be a similar style to the Albert.

    if someone might be able to help.

    i've looked over these pages a few times but i haven't found what i'm looking for.

    in regards to church's pair, what is the sizing like. i've found my true size 8 to be too snug for pairs made by rugby. does the same hold true for the church's?


    thanks in advance for any help

    Do you like them? If ordering to Canada was easier I'd buy two or three extra pairs and just wear the hell out of the things. Great everyday loafers.

    Default Ferragamo Prince Albert

    Does anyone know anything about the Prince Albert slippers that Ferragamo sells called the Riserva? http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2952892?...:referralID=NA

    Are these made by another company and rebranded? Do you think they would run true to size? Thanks for your help

    This is the Casely-Hayford "Bentley" quilted Albert slipper. Kind of a reversed thing.

    Church's Sovereign (these have a unique shape, quite unlike other brands).

    Where can you buy Church's or Tricker's? They aren't listed on either company's websites nor Pediwear for example. Does Church's even do a plain toe?

    Who makes the widest ones? I tried on some Del Toros and they were a bit too narrow.

    The Church's Sovereign is listed on their site, but under "evening shoes" not "slippers". Go figure. Anyway, Herring Shoes (in the UK) is probably your best bet for ordering as they are very professional and will be able to advise you on sizes.

    I cannot offers comments on Tricker's.

    Does Church's even do a plain toe?
    Yes, I have a pair. Actually, I wanted the ones with the crown but when they arrived it was the plain black velvet. The trick is the style number:
    300 for the black (plain)
    300E for the black (with crown)

    Keep in mind those codes may have changed since I ordered (which was 2 years ago).

    Who makes the widest ones? I tried on some Del Toros and they were a bit too narrow.
    I am going to stick my neck out and say the Church's are the widest in RTW, however various firms do MTM in which you can get wider widths (check this and other threads for names). Unfortunately all albert slippers, unless you get bespoke, seem to have narrow toe boxes so if "toe claustraphobia" is a problem for you then you might want to rethink this style of slipper, unless as I said you can afford bespoke or can work with a MTM company.

    Tricker's slippers are in their catalogue, give them a ring on +44 01604 630595 and ask them where your nearest stockist is, or request a catalogue. :icon_smile:

    I'm thinking about purchasing my first pair of slippers and was wondering if there are certain things I should look for to determine the quality, or if it's mainly just to buy the design you like? I like these from Stubbs a lot:



    but $400 is a little pricey, and I'd rather have something with quilted lining so I can wear it at home. Broadland Slippers has a similar design for $180: http://www.broadlandslippers.co.uk/e...-slippers.html (top row, second from the right). I'm thinking it shouldn't be too hard to find things to wear them with, black suits, khakis and a blazer, whatever.

    What do you think?

    Just a thought but, for something worn as infrequently as we might assume velvet slippers might be worn, think "Del Toro!" Reasonably priced and, for the price, they compare remarkably well with the more expensive options...and I believe they can still be purchased through a banner on the AAAC preferred merchants page!

    Of course one can also save a bit of dosh by going pre-owned, especially if one's initials are BLM.

    ^ Church's slippers have a much nicer shape than any other albert slippers, in my opinion. Do they still make them with quilted linings? I have some with a cloth lining, and it's not as nice as quilted nylon or satin (more like sateen).

    I'm now subscribed to this thread!

    The red lined, crested ones at Brooks Brothers seem to be Church's, correct?

    The ones without a crest have a black lining. Are they also Church's?

    Is BB a good way to go in the USA?

    Or: where can I go in London to get a MTM pair?

    Thanks!

    Matthew
