    Glad you like them! As I said, they were easy to forget as I never wear them. They responded well to a brushing though, as you can see, and I've now placed them in shoebags to prevent a recurrence.

    Linen (a summery material) feels a bit incongruous with velvet (a wintery one). Of course, I'm assuming they're a close-cropped velvet and not just a particularly fuzzy green suede; they certainly feel very soft and plush to the touch and velvet would be appropriate for the slipper style. Jeans, yeah I can see that theoretically, but I don't really wear jeans often, and even if I did, the shoes would probably work better with quite skinny rather than normal ones, and I don't wear those....

    I really like these. Trickers has one of the best velvet slippers collections anywhere.

    A pair showed up in the Madoff auction, and IIRC, they looked like they had been worn a fair bit.

    Can't recall. I only skimmed, but I did get a kick out of the slippers.

    Thanks Dave.

    There is a short story behind them.. About two years ago Mrs Brideshead bought me a pair of Tricker's Prince of Wales - Feathers for my birthday. I had worn them a few times indoors when I noticed some of the gold wire beginning to lift on one shoe. I rang Tricker's Jermyn St shop and asked what I should do and they said to pop them in next time I was passing. So I did.

    The shop assistant looked at them, went out the back and a few seconds later returned with a brand new pair. I said I haven't got a receipt and he replied that I had looked after them and he would send them back to the Northampton factory for their comments - it shouldn't have happened. And I had thought customer care was dead......

    I do like the Church's slipper for its slightly more elegant toe shape - a little more elongated and slightly squared off. I am lucky enough to have a fairly rare Church's Sovereign in wine velvet with stag's head. Shown here with my Tricker's Fleur-de-Lys.

    I believe the orange, seersucker and tartan are all limited run Bill's Khaki's and the quad colored cords are Lilly Pulitzer.

    You can get some good customisable ones at the Animas Code now. Broadland still make the best though IMO.
