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:
