Fashion & Style: Gentleman's velvet slippers call to mind the Duke of Windsor, or Fred Astaire - hip-hop producers, not so much. But we're not surprised that Pharrell Williams has discovered the pleasures of Brit stalwart Shipton & Heneage's luxurious footwear; after all, he does have a garage full of Rolls-Royces. Williams, we are reliably informed, recently ordered a pair of Shipton's velvet Albert model slip-ons embroidered with an antique pistol motif.

Hand stitched and bench-made in England from the finest materials, Shipton & Heneage offer an astounding assortment of embroidered emblems on their slippers, in addition to bespoke commissions. Shipton operates two retail shops in London, two in Paris and one Scotland, and also offers mail order worldwide. Prices for the velvet creations, which come in black, navy blue, green, brown or burgundy, range from $185 for a standard emblem - skull, lion, stag - to $250 for a more complex dragon or ivy motif.

Monograms and family crests are popular, and custom creations run in the neighborhood of $500. The garage full of Rolls-Royces is, of course, optional.
