Wrapping your feet in velvet can be, well, a slippery slope. (But it’s something your fall-to-winter scampering requires.)

Luckily, the clever trads over at Stubbs & Wootton have just unveiled their new fall line of evening slippers—with a few irreverent twists, per usual. As a rule of thumb, if you’re going to venture any further than the standard black-velvet hard bottoms, you’d do well to go with something that evokes the smoky den of a retired British admiral, not a neo-apocalyptic runway show. It’s not that you can’t have a little fun with them, though—after all, this is one of the few affectations that may never see the light of day—which is why we’re particularly fond of this pair that looks to be a standard monogrammed set, until you read them together. (We’ll let you sound it out.)

Also great for fans of The Odd Couple.
