    Holy mother of hideous,anything less gaudy? I do like the shape but it seems they are all similar brand wise, im just at a lost as to which brands to check.

    Nonnative has done them in the past, but I don't know if they still do. There's also Moto, although theirs is in leather and not suede

    Sabah's are inspired by Turkish shoes, but made a little more "hip." They do MTOs. Not sure if they have suede, but they might.

    Looks like something I can be down for.

    Thanks @dieworkwear with always the best sources!


    edit:
    There is suede

    While on the topics of slippers, I remembered these (dieworkwear knows this one too):

    http://singhandson.com/ (Site maintenance. I may have to order a pair, they look pretty nice on foot.)

    I don't believe S&S makes it in any other color beside the black, and there is brown if I remember. I asked about white last time but was not an option. Hopefully their site maintenance means more options.

    Really feeling slippers lately, to the OP you may also consider Riviera Leisure shoes. I believe they made suede before. http://rivieras-shoes.com/world/en/?iso_site=eu
    I really like my pair FWIW and looking for another pair in all monochrome. Revolveclothing is sold out in my size though.

    Thanks @dieworkwear & @gettoasty, bay area bros are clutch. Those motos are to die for but s&s are also solid. Now i just need to figure out which is easiest to order from.

    You are way behind, man. I was wearing Urban Outfitters in 1995 and Americana in 2005.

    In the early to mid 90's I was into 50's vintage, kinda in the vein of the cast of Swingers. I was hanging out at lot of the same bars as those guys too so I guess it makes sense.

    My style has come full circle. Now I'm just going to wear plain Uniqlo tees raw denim, and white CP Achilles or F+B 745s. Need a new pair of raw denim, in a slim straight slight taper (think Levi's 514) in a denim that fades white versus APC's dirty green fade. Any suggestions?
