    On a little more research, I think both BB slippers are made by Peal & Co.

    The ones without a crest have a black lining. Are they also Church's?
    Look at the overhead views on the website and take a look at the toe box in particular. Church's are the only albert slippers out there which have longer, slightly chisel toes with the crest positioned relatively high on the instep (where the snaffle bit would be on bit loafers). Every other brand out there does short, pointy toes with oversized crests positioned low on the vamp.
    ...where can I go in London to get a MTM pair?
    There are a couple of companies in the UK who do this, but I don't have them at my fingertips. Read this thread from beginning to end.

    I'm so keen on these. I'm waiting for the Brooks Brothers semi annual to finally get a pair. My dad calls these "Hollywood Shoes" and my mom calls them "gay".

    Why not just buy them now at full price? That way you'll be sure of getting the style you want, in the size you need.

    Is the Del Toro offer still available to forum members?

    Bump.

    I still want a pair.

    I can't decide between Church's, Del Torro with some custom flair, or Brooks Brothers for far less. Or now something crazy from iShoes.

    I have two pair of the Brooks Brothers slippers, one plain and one with the sovereign crown. I love them. I am getting another pair in a couple of weeks from a British company called Bow-Tie with the skull and cross sabres. They are very reasonable at $285.

    I like the plain Alberts by BB. They're a great place to start.

    Looks like the price went up $50 since I picked mine up in the spring.

    Yes they did go up by $50. They're less of a bargain now.

    Does anybody own a pair of the RL Collis? How's the fit?

    I don't think I would like the look of plain albert slippers (no embroidery) worn with casual clothing. Anyone have a picture?

    On another note, I never ended up buying any this season. Oh well.

    Unremarkable, as well as a little stuffy this time of year.

    BB has some cool new patterns. Although $50 more expensive than last season, still considerably less expensive than S&W, DT, or RL.







    With all those 40% off single use coupons going out, you won't find a lower price until after Christmas. Even then common sizes and a good discount aren't guaranteed.

    The plain alberts now come in burgundy and bottle green as well.

    Bottle green looks great. And I could use it in a variety of situations.

    I finally bit the bullet and got black ones (no insignias) from Brooks Brothers.

    They weren't in my local store, which is a not-very-nice store, so they should arrive in a few days.
