Stubbs & Wootton
Percy Steinhart's company Stubbs & Wootton has been the industry and society leader in casual stylish velvet house slippers. The whimsical designs he incorporates range from mild to wild and some are guaranteed to turn heads. The majority of his customer base is the golden triangle of Palm Beach, New York and The Hampton's.
Some of his original designs which have become standards with Stubbs & Wootton are Devils, Martini glasses, Palm Trees and custom family crests. According to Percy "Dressed up and dressed down can exist without having to choose one". Both young and old can enjoy these excellent slippers, for summer the fabrics switches to straw and raffia which works well for daywear.
Starting in his Worth Avenue boutique in Palm beach in 1993, the brand has expanded to Manhattan's Upper east Side and Jobs Lane in Southhampton. The company offers customized styles and colors of everything from initials, family crests and personal images.
