*Vintage Edwardian Style EVAN & STANDARD Brocade Slipper, 1950s: 42D
Evan & Standard
Paisley Brocade & Patent Leather
Spending a lot of time at home lately? I wonder why! Why not spend it in style? This classic is the perfect complement to your velvet or brocade smoking jacket (or, for that matter, your plaid pajamas). There is no reason not to be properly shod, even at home. The style of this slipper derives from the Edwardian era and earlier. Imagine Oscar Wilde entertaining friends or at his writing desk in his library. It is easy to imagine him in such a slipper. He was reputed to have remarked, “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”
With its full-leather lining for dureability and its rubber heel for comfort, these are indeed the last word in elegance, just as the poet says, “the best”.
