I will consider some burgundy or emerald green Prince Alberts for next winter.

qed...actually I don't remeber to have asked you, but then again I could learn a lot of new things I had an unfound petit bourgeois to communicate with.

Well, I could post your flaccid private message that I chose to never reply to, but I don't want to start one of those boring internet arguments that can never be finished. So, lets just keep a distance between our worlds of 'unfound (?) petit bourgeois' and faux aristocracy. B.

Who knew this was such a good thread? What is an unfound petit bourgeois?

I too have an MSN address.

I finally discovered it was not too much technology for me to handle.

Biboy, if being in real life what his posts suggest, would be the e.g.

Please do. I was pondering a bespoke slipper with my family coat of arms but settled for a monogrammed Shipton and Heneage instead. I find limited use for it though, despite the fact that it's splendid.

I think having your coat of arms on your shoes is pushing it. In our country aristocracy has been abolished and I have little sympathy for people flashing the debris of long gone previliges around. Having said that it is still a lot more original and acceptable than waering slipperes with a rustic squire's crown on them when you are the decendent of, let's say, a butcher.

Yeah, I thought the same and got my initials instead...

This discussion reminds me a little of some Austrian friends who suffer endlessly under the Habsburg laws.
It's very important to have talked about it on an internet forum and everyone will be glad to be told what he's allowed and accepted to do.

To me it's more about whether to have a stock emblem or one's own emblem, or just a monogramme. Or maybe nothing at all?
But like stilmacher said, coats of arms mean nothing today and he's quite right.

Perhaps instead of a stock pattern one could have some drawing of his/hers embroidered - e.g. lobsters?

I also agree with stilmacher. It is pretty pretentious to have an embroidered crown on one's shoes, especially if one comes from a blue collar background. I like initials more, or if you have a family crest - good for you. Alternatively, plain slippers would be a nice option imho.
