    Hello there,

    I realized there is a "search tool", and I used it, but I still don't have an answer.

    I read (and look) through this thread, and it contains pictures of the velvet slippers (or loafers, I don't even know what to call these as I am new to this type of shoes).

    How do you guys pair them with? Are these considered formal or informal? Does the EXTREMELY LARGE logo on them make them a little bit too tacky?

    Let's say if I am to buy the black velvet ones with RL scripted, will it be a big no-no?

    Thank you very much.

    Any other pro opinion?

    Why is it a no-no?

    These velvet slippers is considered as formal menwear, as far as I know, but you shouldn't wear them to a party at a public club (except a private club or an event hosted at your premises). Somebody say that velvet slipper is a house shoes :D
    Btw, I don't like the big logo on the shoes either.
    But if you really loved them, maybe you would wear them with double or single breasted blazer (maybe a velvet blazer, why not?), jeans, crisp white shirt, an exquesite pocket square etc.

    I've never liked Big embroideries in general. On shoes I find it to be' even worse. I love velvet slippers otherwise. Wear them at home with a nice smoking jacket.
