- Wilbur Ross wore custom slippers to Trump's joint congressional address
- They were made by Stubbs & Wootton
The billionaire investor, 79, sported custom handmade Stubbs & Wootton slippers emblazoned with the Commerce Department's seal: an eagle, a ship and a lighthouse.
Stubbs & Wootton has its flagship store on Palm Beach's signature Worth Avenue, a 10-minute drive from The Beach Club, the exclusive club where Ross is a member, per his confirmation questionnaire
The footwear company describes
its designs as "tongue-in-cheek."
The company's mission: "Giving the slipper its due recognition as an all-purpose shoe, we are responsible for making evening slippers relevant once again." The slippers are "brilliant with a tuxedo," but also "perfect with shorts," per its website (Ross wore them with charcoal slacks, navy jacket and a red tie).
The men's bespoke slippers start at $525, but it was not immediately clear how much Ross' slippers ultimately cost.
They were first spotted by Huffington Post's Christina Wilkie in a tweet.
