Not a fan of dub monk boots. At all. But as they're not for me, that doesn't much matter.

I seem to have a thing for ankle boots, owning 5 pairs in various styles and leathers, and was thinking about something casual that wasn't a traditional chukka.

That was exactly my thought process ;)

Here's my list so far.

Con:

1) it may be a pain to put on and take off. My double monk shoes are kinda.
2) it's a ridiculously dandy stifle that I probably won't pull off too well.

Pros:

1) I really really want it.

Here's a photo that Mr. Kuti sent me (will NOT be requesting this particular colorway)


these are outstanding! i personally could not, would not wear them but I could appreciate them on someone with grey flannel trousers. yes sir

Pepper if you really like it & love the make up get it with the color you want. I love jodhpur & after looking at your JL shoes lol I order JL jodhpur.

Damnit. Those black JL Jodhpurs. I forgot about those. Maybe I should get that instead. Though equally dandy...

Fuck.

DM booties are really great (JL WII especially). Yes they are  kind of dandy so please, in order to balance the style,  do not mix leathers and colours.  This boot in black or oxblood calf is just outstanding. Keep the makeup low profile, simple IMO.  Hope you get them!!

 

PS.-Think about rounded bucklets wich I prefer.

Maybe ask for their single buckle designs as well? Something with a higher strap across the ankle (like the G&G) might be more comfortable and usable in more situations.

I still think I'd choose a chukka, jodhpur or Chelsea first.  But DAMN! :worship:

I know much of this comes down to personal preference and often cannot easily be articulated but I am curious why you guys find the Double Monk version to be unappealing but the single monk is something you would really want?  Ignoring (as much as you can) the aesthetic differences between G&G and Vass.

For me it's the aesthetic of the last. It's just gorgeous.

To be clear, I Am also a fan of Vass lasts.

I think most of the revulsion to the photo I posted had to do with the colors and mix of suede and calf. I did clearly say that I was considering 100% grain leather, either dark brown or oxblood, but words are easily missed when a picture is posted. smile.gif

I actually really like this example by C&J:

Yes, that's the one that I fell in love with. However, not available in my size (width), and Vass fits me superbly, so I thought I'd go with their version.
