Mens Velvet Slippers — A Classic Essential

My love for velvet slippers only grows stronger every day! Mens velvet slippers are the epitome of Victorian-era dandyism, also known as a Prince Albert slipper. They were initially designed as a house shoe for Victorian men hosting formal dinner parties in their homes.

However, over the past couple of seasons the fashion industry has been pushing the silhouette as a modern everyday footwear style, not limited to the privacy of gentleman’s clubs or the most formal of events. They are now paired with everything from smart-casual staples to red carpet tailoring.

A silhouette that is bound to divide opinion with my readers, in my opinion this footwear option is bold, brave and brilliant — guaranteed to elevate both your formal and casual ensembles up a notch or two.
