Slip One On…

Men’s slippers, or as my dad liked to call them—houseshoes, can seem a bit old fashioned, however, they're very functional. Mr. Peacock has wood floors, and they can get very cold and drafty in San Francisco, so slippers become very useful on chilly days. On warm days, however, I prefer to lounge in flip-flops or just go barefoot in the house. The challenge with men’s slippers is finding a pair that is both handsome and functional. Many men’s slippers look like a big pair of Uggs, which isn’t bad, if you like that look, but if you prefer a more refined looking slipper it can be a daunting search. Mr. Peacock prefers a slip on mule style slipper—usually in black. Here are some of my favorites:
Any gentleman peacock would look chic schlepping around the house in these black patent leather slippers. They’re on sale here.

These black leather slippers are both functional and classic looking. They also come in a burgundy color. More information here.

Lounging around in these black leather moc-croc slippers, with sheepskin lining, could be nice. Buy a pair here.

Basic and black slippers—no bells or whistles for forty bucks. Order a pair here.

More basic black, left to right: Duke Scuff Slippers, Lariat Slippers, Aristocrat Scuff Slippers.

These black leather woven slippers are on Mr. Peacock’s wish list. More information here.

What kind of slippers do you wear around the house?

My goodness gracious...I just had the most pleasant memory. My daddy wore slippers very similar to the Brooks Bros Nappa Backless. I'd COMPLETELY forgotten.

I have a pair of those backless Ugg looking things in brown suede that suffice, but I can't stand the way they look. When it's very cold I prefer Belgian slippers but must wear a sock with them, which can be annoying. Same holds true with my velvet carpet slippers from New & Lingwood. But they have quilted red lining that cheers me up and the stalking lion embroidered on the top... In summer, you can't beat a pair of espadrilles. My favourites are striped and I've worn through the toe on the right one...
