Today Gabe is wearing a green jacket, a grey sweatshirt, khaki pants, and his outdoor slippers.
What are outdoor slippers? It’s simple. They are slippers you wear outside.
When we were living in San Francisco, we shared a crammed apartment with anywhere between 4 and 7 other people at any given time, and discovered the simple pleasure of wearing slippers outside. They’re warm and comfortable, and as long as they have good soles, they are just great.
But your outdoor slippers can’t also be your indoor slippers, since your outdoor slippers can get dirty, so it’s important to designate a pair of slippers specifically for use in the great outdoors. They can’t be furry and they can’t look like slippers exactly – it’s all about illusion and the secret luxury of wearing slippers all day long.
By the time we moved out in 2011, at least four of the housemates had a pair of outdoor slippers, though natch, Gabe wore them most and wore them best.
