Yeah. But that's for "moving on" or "I don't really think much of what you are currently saying"   Another large scale check with a tie:  
Get black oxfords. Nice ones. Go somewhere and get a high shine on them. Pumps are a waste of money. Unless you're Crusty.
@Caustic Man just got some Herring and was pleased with them. I have several Meermin shoes and those are alright. Not the most comfortable but more comfortable than most.

Everything else is a mild variation of preference that doesn't impact my dressing or purchasing habits much. I dislike flap pockets on anything but suits (feels messy and distracting, and since I often use my pockets, they get annoying in general). And you all have to admit, monks are like the most archaic looking thing folks...
I've had two pairs and sold both, though in both cases nothing to do with design. I just don't particularly like them. Sometimes they make me think of dwarves. Other times, old timey Quakers. Like the Quaker Oats guy. As far as what I would put before buying a pair for the sake of variety (and they would probably get worn if the outfit jives with them). 2 pairs of brown calf captoe oxfords, different shades of brown. 2 brown shortwings, varying levels of brogueing 2...
