I really, truly had gotten past my slipper obsession. The gluttony came to a head after Christmas with the Purple Label pair. That brought the collection to: black with gold crest (Purple Label), black with white skull (Rugby), brown with stag head (Rugby), navy and burgundy stripe with silver wire skull (Rugby), black patent with bow (Cole Haan). Way, way, way too many for any person. But now I face the slippery slope of bespoke. Have a nice swatch of family tartan? Send it off to Shipton + Heneage and pair will arrive at your door in 6-8 weeks. Have a family crest or a blog logo? They'll put that on there, too. All this customization and monogramming business would have Jeeves running for the hills, but I love it. Just this week I ordered a custom polo helmet (light brown and white with -- I hope -- my blog logo on the back, but if they can't do it, it'll have a good ole HHH embroidered. Because everyone needs a polo helmet...and everyone needs it customized).
