In partnership with: Crockett & Jones
How’s your black tie wardrobe looking? Fit for an international super spy? Good enough for a prince? If not, it’s time to enlist the help of Crockett & Jones.
The British shoemaker has been outfitting the world’s style elite with its Northampton-made styles since 1879, along the way earning the favour of James Bond (and the role’s most recent incumbent Daniel Craig), as well as a Royal Warrant from the Prince of Wales. And, if it’s good enough for them…
The only question, really, is which style from Crockett & Jones’ extensive range of handmade loafers, brogues, Oxfords and monk straps are best to pair with your tuxedo. For us, there’s only one choice: the classic velvet Albert slipper.
A house staple, Crockett & Jones’ version of the shoe originally popularised in the early 1800s and widely believed to be named for Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, features a whole cut upper and fully quilted lining. Luxurious details that are both evidence of Crockett & Jones’ fine shoemaking skill and serve to create a style that is both comfortable and elegant.
As the style demands, the Albert slipper is rendered in soft velvet, with shades of navy, black, burgundy and forest green available, offering plenty of options for showing your personal style while maintaining a formal dress code. The finishing touch? A quality hard leather sole that will have you gliding across the dance floor with ease.
Sound like the perfect addition to your festive season wardrobe? Of course it does. Good news, then, that Luxury London has teamed up with Crockett & Jones to offer one lucky winner the chance to win a pair of Albert velvet slippers in the shade of their choice.
