Product description

The Herring Monarch is a classic velvet slipper handmade in England. Featuring a luxurious quilted lining and hand embroidered 'Herring Crest', they're not your regular slippers. Often referred to as the Albert (after Queen Victoria's consort), they were originally regarded as house shoes by the English. They became acceptable footwear for wearing with dinner jackets at home or at ones club, and remain so today. They're also credited with being a forebear of the loafer, or at least helping towards its social acceptance. Fit for a King or the man with an appreciation of the finer things in life.
