Spousey ped-drobe


Classic Gucci loafs

Allow me a brief diversion into the closet of the male of the species. (Yes, they have them, too.)

In my case, it's Spousey, who also has developed a healthy appreciation for the fine art of the well-cobbled shoe.
After all, a gentleman truly does need a certain baseline collection for all occasions.

I submit...


Church's two-tone spectator, perfect for Easter



Your standard Spectator, from Church's...


The dependable white buck...


RL alligator loafs


Stubbs and Wootton velvet slipper


Cole-Haan tasseled loaf


Lobb monk strap


Brooks fox slipper...worn by all groomsmen at our wedding eons ago


Trusty Bass weejun


Gucci nouvelle horse-bit loaf


Cable lace-up


Sperry topsider


Cole-Haan tuxedo pump



Belgian loaf

This is in addition to golf shoes, garden shoes, flip-flops (both leather and Vineyard Vines), sneakers of all types, paddock boots, LL Bean rubber ducks of two heights (low and above the ankle), Hunter wellies, and assorted others.

As you can see, it gallops in the family.

If the shoe fits,

Wow, your hubby has very good taste in shoes! Love the Wooten and Stubbs - wish I could convince my husband to get a pair. :)

Just saw "Wootton and Stubbs" flash past me as I hit send :)

As a horsewoman I would wear the 'fox' velvet slippers myself. Size 7's of course.

Awesome jackets and shoes!

Spousey has, no doubt, some absolutely wonderful shoes. But I've got to say that he needs to care for them a little better. Yes, he uses shoe trees (as does my husband) but he also needs to keep them in their dust bags. (I'm talking about the tuxedo pump in particular.) And he needs to have several of them either cleaned (the wonderful two-tone spectator) or polished (the monk strap). And while the alligator loafers were certainly pricey they look a tad feminine by today's standards; the vamp is a little shallow.

Really love the GTH jackets.

Slot machines and video poker nowadays bring more than 70% of the total income of casinos. But why they are popular so? This question is easily answered. When the slot machines there are huge jackpots and the odds are huge.
