You're not alone. I've got three, vintage cherry, vintage Rioja and polo suede
You are correct. See here for the double monk:http://www.styleforum.net/t/249812/new-top-drawer-churchs-range/120#post_5183618

Very nice indeed. Thanks Nutcracker for making the video and posting the link. My only issue with the video is that Hasegawa-San was brushing a brand new pair of shoes and so I can't really appreciate the difference. Maybe I should watch it on a computer monitor instead of my iPhone.
