What do you guys think of this one as a business casual shoe?
Calf leather - burgundy
Last: F Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'd wear it.
Bumping and rephrasing my question about single monks:
If anyone has Vass single monks on the U last, how would you describe the proportions? Are they balanced nicely or are they slightly too elongated and pointy for such a 'conservative' model (I think single monks are fairly conservative). As I wrote earlier, I'm choosing a last for single monks now. I'd generally prefer F to U because of fit, and in this particular case I'm also wondering about elongation on the U last, but something about the few pictures of single monks on the F last also rubs me the wrong way. It's hard to explain, but maybe there is something in the F last that makes it look better with toe caps, medallions and other things that I wouldn't like to see in a single monk, while U tends to look equally nice in all designs (although it does have a lot of panache that may be somewhat out of place in, e.g. black cap-toe oxfords, but that's mostly because of tradition - aesthetically they are still very nice). However, I've not seen single monks on either last in real life and am judging by pictures only. I've considered P2 as well, but I think it looks a bit too rough for this model.
Might have to try this on some Marlows..
