Acquisitions | Rugby Hunting Slippers

They're finally on sale! $200 for Rugby's most humorous slippers to date.  Porter got a pair yesterday.  I'm getting mine at lunch.  If our closeness wasn't sick enough, we've now resorted to wearing matching shoes.  Mucho planning and coordination must ensue in the mornings to insure we're not both in the mood for plaid hunting slippers.  

(They don't sell the slippers online, so you have to pop to one of the stores).

The ugly green monster of jealousy has reared its ugly head once more - I want those slippers for myself haha If only I hadn't spend four times that on textbooks for the semester. Another trip to Yale in those slippers would be fantastic. Or, throw on some adirondack wear with 'em and you've got yourself an excuse to visit Dartmouth in homage to the Dartmouth Outing Club! Looking forward to many great pics.

How do you continue to find so many fantastic things! Thanks for sharing.Porter and you should do a "who wears it better post" after you get your pair.

Just got my pair (and two sweaters)...wahoo! This could be excellent material for next year's Christmas card...if we were to ever actually send Christmas cards.

Very nice. They definitely tell a story...

Do you know how much good $400 (the cost of 2 sets of slippers) would have done in Haiti? Could you think of someone else, for a change?

long time reader 2nd time poster. i totally jumed the gun and went to the rugby site as soon as i saw that u got your slippers from rugby but then my world came crashing down when i read that they onl have them in stores. bummer. i am now obsessed with rugby.com now. i bought myself a few things from the mens sweater collection and the skull sweats and skull tan cord (which r now sold out except in black which i will buy soon)

Great slippers!

Re the Haiti comment....how do you know that the Hovey Team hasn't arranged for more than 400 bucks to roll in to Haiti?

Slippers and Haiti-I say.

Onward.

Those slippers are great. Just the right balance of style and irony.
My wife and I were just wondering about that store...

I don't live near a Rugby store, but I called the New York store and bought a pair. They will ship them to you for $5, and there is not a sales tax charge if you live outside New York.
