Crockett & Jones Slippers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know if C&J is making the slippers themselves or if they are 'subcontracted'. I have never seen any in their Northampton Factory Shop...

 

Are they any good? I am planning to move away from Church's (Ajax and Air Travel)...

If you mean the leather soled house slippers, they are outsourced.

Yes, I meant these slippers. Any thoughts on the quality? Any idea who is making the slippers for them?

Probably Broadland or Bowhill & Elliott

Quality/price ratio is reasonable if you can get them for around £100. They are comfortable and will last a long time as a house shoe, but considerably less if you wear them often outdoors.

Like the great majority of Northampton shoe-makers, C&J's velvet slippers are outsourced from Bowhill & Elliot, who make them at their factory, which is located behind and beneath their retail shop in London Street, Norwich. You might well be better advised to buy such slippers direct from B & E, as they make them to order (which means you can choose the colour for the outer and lining, as well as any additional crest or emblem on the vamp). I have two pairs at present, and have owned many others previously. They are around £200 a pair, and are good value. If you require personalised monogrammed  slippers, however, that adds a further £100 to the cost.

Thanks, Gents, that's very useful information!
