Del Toro’s Second Bennett Jordan Slipper Arrives in Time for the Holidays

Despite a full schedule following new business opportunities after a season 16 Bachelorette appearance, Bennett Jordan still maintains his day job as a managing director at Whitney Partners wealth and alternative asset management.

“I love what I do, and while I have more than enough to keep me working until well past dinner, I have so much fun being a creator. I love any opportunity to create, to share the things I love with others, and to make people laugh or bring happiness to others,” Jordan said in a phone interview. 

A large part of this creative outlet for Jordan aligns with his passion for fashion, especially where shoes step into the picture. This summer that took the form of a partnership with Del Toro shoes in designing a pair of sage green suede Milano loafers that added a distinct dash to his summer outfits. As this fall fades to winter, Jordan has collaborated for a second time with Del Toro CEO Andrew Roberts on an Italian shoe in line with the season, a luxurious dark green velvet slipper.

“Green has been my favorite color since I was a little kid,” Jordan said. “There’s a green velvet sofa in my living room, a green carpet on the floor, and a glass table that’s off-white and speckled with green.”

Jordan went on to say that while he appreciated the shape and comfort of his first Del Toro slippers, a navy-colored pair from a few years back, this new pair is “just a huge upgrade in shoe feel and fit.”

“They’re much more comfortable and add a little something different,” Jordan said. “There are not a lot of green velvet slippers on the market.”

Del Toro’s velvet slippers range from a stylish alternative to sneakers with jeans or chinos to standing in as a sleek substitute for dress shoes during more formal occasions (such as the sleek slippers Jordan made his Bachelorette entrance in, striding from a white Rolls Royce, complete in tux and white scarf). The velvet slipper’s texture and subtle dark green aligns to fall and winter, indoors and out. Whether it’s at a pool table at a bar in Brooklyn, where del Toro first photographed Jordan wearing the slipper, or strolling along his beloved High Line greenscape in New York City, the shoes offer a polished and elevated look for the sharply dressed man.

“Velvet and this green gives you this next level pop,” Jordan said. “It’s similar to how I dress across the board. As a man you have nuances and attention to detail that gives you that next level of pop. It’s the most beautiful shoe in my closet, without a doubt.”

That’s really saying something for a man who estimates that he’s got about 50 to 60 slippers in his closet. 

Del Toro’s “Men’s Green Velvet Slipper II” is now on sale for $365. Most of Jordan’s first collaboration, the “Men’s Sage Suede Milano Loafer,” sold out this summer, so if you’re looking for a singular fashionable style to rock this season, you need to act fast.

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.

Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
