I sampled out a killer doublemonk with my factory. It's something that we could put out for about $375. Is this a style you guys would be interested? The Double Monk was kind of shot, killed, and buried by the #menswear bros a few years back, but I'm thinking that it's poised to come back as a normal style without a freaking ton of hype. I still wear them all the time. 
This would be fantastic. Dubs may have been usurped by the CP/Lanvin/MMM $500 sneaker craze, but I still think they look fantastic. That, and as someone with a preposterously narrow heel they are really the only non-laced shoe that I can reliably and comfortably wear. I don't know that you would sell them by the gross but I think we could at least sustain some small orders or GMTOs.

FWIW, the Salinger double monk in brown calf is still my favorite shoe, serving the same versatile function as dark denim or a navy blazer.

Nice slub.

 

I look forward to seeing other leathers on that last.

 

I'd like to see some more casual monks, maybe slightly wider and not quite as sleek?

Love this shoe and the last. Mike I always liked when you named wares after neighborhood streets. The Rapelye? My fave street name in EP's old neighborhood.

 

(Just avoid naming it the Gowanus.)

 

Also, nice denim.

Mike, any idea what the blend is on the Linen Blend Seed Stitch? Is it wool-linen, silk-linen, or something more complex?

 

Very interested to hear a bit more about the lined blend seed stitch also ... How does the weight compare with the wheat and straw slubby linen?

@cyclohexane
 - Sony A7RII with the new 85 1.4. I think that this is shot at 1.6 or so. 

Pretty. I'm wishing I had gotten into the Saffiano bag preorder. biggrin.gif

I keep telling myself it's because I want to see a bunch of real world photos of them in the thread first, and maybe a different shape or two. If there was a color a bit lighter and more tan than the Cognac available I would have caved, but I know you said the minimums for non-standard colors are enormous.

Buying into Sony scares the crap out of me. At first, their cameras were half-baked and their lens lineup lacking. What really got me was the promise of firmware updates to fill in missing features (early mirrorless days), some of which never came and were instead delivered as hardware updates: "You know, just kidding, buy our new product to get that instead".

Of course, Canon has done this once, and Nikon has done this twice recently, so it's not like the behavior is unique to Sony. I think all the Japanese camera companies tend to eventually end up doing about the same thing, which is it'll funny given how different each company is as a whole.

At least with Leica, they don't even pretend like they're not behind the 8-ball, so you know what you're getting into.

Their S system support for working professionals has really declined lately, though, but there's not too many places left to go. Phase One? I don't like the direction they've taken under their new ownership but they might be the lesser of the evils.

Maybe I just don't have a very good imagination, but those look even better worn. You really did nail the last? Will the production version have the contrast on the heel w/ the upper part different from the Dainite? I wonder if it might be a little cleaner if they were the same tone. I say this as someone for whom the Dainite is a big positive (standing desks at work and leather soles haven't been a great combo for me), but I think I'd like it even more if it was all one color.

 

Also on a footwear note, do you have an ETA on those slip-on tennis shoes?
