Ok, I give up: how do you color coordinate 'Opera Pumps'?

Ok, do you just wear these with regular black tie? RLPL has several colors of these 'pumps' (sounds ghey just typing it), wont they stand out like clown shoes at a funeral?

Or is it part of the cool?

Or are these just for wearing with smoking jacket at private semi-formals at the playboy mansion?

Those are not opera pumps. Opera pumps are always black patent leather (or calf if you're really sartorially adventurous), and have a grosgrain silk bow on the vamp.

What you are looking at"”as stated in the auction itself"”are dress slippers, designed for entertaining guests at home, and thus similar to smoking jackets in terms of color and material.

Check here and here for more details.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
