I saw a JP Crickets booth at a polo match a couple of months ago, and really liked these.

I would get those exact ones but with my initials.

Are there any opera pumps I should look at first before pulling the trigger on the velvet ones?

Brooks Brothers sells pumps in calf and patent; neither fit me (much to my wife's relief).  Del Toro makes a black patent slipper that is pump-like (although it substitutes a red ribbon up the back of the shoe for the usual bow in front):http://www.deltoroshoes.com/shop/men/slipper.html.  If I thought I could pull it off, I would get the velvet slippers.  In my opinion, Eddie Redmayne won the "best dressed" man designation at the most recent Oscars despite his lack of a waist covering and donning a watch.  I realize that many regard these as inexcusable sins, but picture this ensemble without the white triangle or the timepiece and I think you'll find it perfect--thanks in large measure to the velvet slippers.

On looking at that photo, while I do not think I am a fan of the slippers to a public event, if you are going to wear them, I think they would look better with grosgrain facings.  I do not like the look of a watch, in general, but I find the shape of the face on that one is really what makes it not work.

 

I actually find it odd that the prescribed wristwatch is black.  I would go with an all white watch, if I were to wear one.  But I still would not; I tried my discreet silver watch on with my rig before my wedding reception (I had packed it just to wear for the evning), and as soon as I saw it pop out below the cuff, I knew it was not going to go, and I would probably never wear one.  I suppose any leather strap might get less attention than a metal one, as it won't shine?  Anyway, the all black watch would, it seems to me, be very visible when it peeks out, would it not?
