Men's Slipper HUGO
Just as elegant as comfortable, the essence of our custom made men’s slippers relies on their resistant leather sole, a moderate heel and a vamp, mostly in velvet or suede.
In Cambrillón we are passionate about the versatility, elegance and sophistication that a pair of men’s slippers adds to any men’s wardrobe. That is why we call our men’s slippers HUGO.

History of men’s dress slippers.
The history of men’s dress slippers is related with the aristocracy. The lords, after a long day out there hunting or riding their horses, bad their boots and shoes dirty. So in an amazingly elegant attempt to keep their castles clean, they used to take off their horse riding boots and slip on their feet in a pair of comfortable slippers.
In the 21st century, their royal origins seem to have remained unchanged, since one if their variant is still associated with elegant evening events. This variation is called the opera pumps. Opera pumps today are typically made of black patent leather with grosgrain trimming and silk bow across the vamp, also in grosgrain; details designed to match the silk of tuxedo lapels and the bow tie.
The Albert Slipper
The unmistakable closed-back slippers are Albert slippers, named after the royal consort of Queen Victoria.
Nowadays, and despite the fact that men’s slipper are still traditionally made in black velvet, they come in different colours and materials, being burgundy and navy blue suede or velvet two very popular choices.
As a side note, the leather version of the Albert slipper is technically known as the Churchill, presumably because they were Sir Winston’s favourite choice of material.
How to pair your bepsoke men’s slippers
Men’s slippers can be paired with a matching velvet dinner jacket. Velvet lends them formality, while their nature as slippers brings in a flamboyant vibe.
For an air of sprezzatura, suede or velvet slippers can be paired with a blazer and denim trousers. If this is the intention, slippers are usually worn sockless, but if you’ve got a dinner jacket on, you need to wear thin socks.
However you choose to wear your men’s slippers, they are a worthy addition to your collection. Start with a pair of Albert slippers for the most use, selecting embroidery that suits your personality.
