Can't wear those flimsy slippers around here mate, my feet would freeze off. Plus I'm just not that vain that I'd need to spend 200 quid on slippers to wear around the house anyway, especially when my 6 month old would likely just dribble all over them.

I've got Draper slippers with suede sole. Herring make something similar. Often on sale. No monograms.

Are we going to look back on the last few years of (relatively) skinny suit jacket lapels with regret? My suit purchases swing between the extremes of bespoke to second hand pickups on this forum/ebay and last seasons MJ Bale. I always try to buy classic, not fashion, but it's been harder to avoid the shrinking lapel recently without going bespoke. I have it on good authority it's swinging round the other way (Gatsby et al), but of course it will just go to another extreme before coming back. A lot to be said for the middle of the road methinks.

I don't think that I'll look back on it with regret, but it is irritating.

As an example, Herringbone had a really nice nailhead weave suit in their range last year and it would have been fantastic were it not for the fact that it had ridiculously narrow lapels. I suppose that they attracted a few people with the trendy, narrow lapels but I'd be willing to bet that the skinny lapels deterred far more people than they attracted.

The same with skinny ties - I've seen some really nice ties, including Drake's, that I'd really like but they've been made in 7cm widths. What's with that? A tie should really be at least - at least - 8cm and preferably (for my taste) 9cm wide.

Actually I'm thinking of taking this baby to the max, and commissioning a jacket with NO LAPELS AT ALL #swag

If you're from the Aus-Chinese community and plan to vote Labor, does that make you a Luddite?

These are my only slippers...but I only dream of owning a Menswear Store (here in Melbourne and calling it Male Born...since we are doing puns).

Here are my posts from the discussion a few weeks ago (which should lead you back to the contributions of others on the topic) - http://www.styleforum.net/t/88856/australian-members/34200_50#post_6461444

My slippers: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/35379?feat=503402-GN3&page=men-s-handsewn-slippers-flannel-lined&attrValue_0=Brown&productId=522825

Evidently, I am some way from owning a #menswear store.

I've gone for practicality over style, there, clearly - but on the plus side, they don't need shoe trees...

Seriously, though, if anyone wants some ultra comfy slippers than can also handle the outdoors just fine (most people think they are boat shoes, and they have a grippy and durable sole), then I highly recommend them. They also aren't too warm, which is something that I have found with fleece lined slippers.
