dh won't wear any of the slippers I have ever bought him. Instead he wanders around the house in a really smelly old pair of sandals hmm

no real men do not
my dh has either shoes for going out or trainers
or bare feet/socks in house
or surfy sandals for summer, can't think what they are, fatface or something

Nope, never wear slippers.

Socks indoors, shoes for work, trainers or caterpillar boots for not at work.

OMG his feet must be massive presumably a 47 is a size 13.

<<mmm, I wonder if its true, that saying about big feet>>>

kittylouise Wed 26-Sep-07 13:09:20

Slippers for men are vile, with tartan horrors, navy blue old boys' slippers or saddo ones with bart simpson or daffy duck embroidered on them (up there with soap-on-a-rope as the top naff Christmas present to buy a man).

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 26-Sep-07 13:09:57

slippers on any man under 70 are terrible - BIL has them and I'd find them a huge turn off if I was SIL !!
