Kicks for a King.


It’s said that you can judge a man by his shoes but this goes doubly true for his slippers. In public you’re dignified, distinguished, or at the very least not disheveled. A man’s home is his castle though, and you should look the part. This means dressing like a king. A very comfortable king. Many men these days unfortunately forgo them altogether, but we still believe that slippers are a crucial component of any at home outfit. The power of the slipper lies not in its comfort (it goes without saying that a good pair of slippers should feel like you’re stepping into a cloud) but in the message they send to visitors – You’re in shoes, I’m in slippers, I’m in charge here. So here now are our favorite slippers fit for a king, even if your kingdom is little more than a shoebox studio apartment.

    How on earth can Belgian Shoes not appear on this list? A glaring omission.

    Couple of additions, Church’s, Trickers of course. And, the lesser known Draper of Glastonbury. All of which, and if not. certainly the first two are still Made in England.

    From your side of The Drink a Pendleton tartan gown is a nice bit of schmutter for round the drum, even if they have used faux leather buttons. Not forgetting your moccasin makers for that bit domestic tracking.

    Belgians are great. I agree. We have something else coming on those.

    Very surprised you missed the best-in-class here, of
    course, Belgian Shoe. The rest look like they only go
    with pajamas.

    Love my LL Bean sheepskin moccasins. Look very similar to the UGGs. The most comfortable slippers I’ve ever had.

    Interesting how basic men’s slipper design is: those Brooks’ ones remind me of my grandfather. L.B. Evans’ are excellent; I wore a pair for years ’til they went literally to the dogs. Now I make do with a pair of UGG’s, which have that super comfortable wool lining, and are perfect for those few weeks of SoCal chill (relatively speaking, of course). Otherwise, it’s bare feet or slippahs (Hawaiian style): we don’t wear shoes in the house, and it’s too hot.

    I’m looking forward to the post on Belgians. I’ve seen them only on women, and a few slightly effete New England gentlemen.
