hi im in the market for a new double monkstrap

i already a "lowndes lookalike" in black and now i need something new---a brown one.

but where can i get one that looks great but doesnt cost more than 250€

ps. i know the mora is a decent shoe, but it looks too bulky for me

youre going to be hard-pressed to find anything similar to the lowndes in quality and shape. anything less and you'll be looking into AE blob territory.

perhaps you can search ebay and find something of a R or sub quality and those will run you about 100-150 less maybe.

The only thing in that price range that isn't AE/Alden blob like will be Ferragamo's, Bally's which can be easily found on ebay.

Just a question...have you seen the AE Mora in person? It really is a beautiful model from AE and most certainly is not a blob at all. The C&J Lowndes is a different styling on the toebox ( tapered plain toe w-medallion)and shouldn't be compared to the Mora in the first place. Both are beautiful. Also, are you looking at new in box, or also looking at pre-owned?

Santoni can be found for as cheap as well.

Are single monks considered less acceptable and stylish?

I was thinking of getting a monk, but was not sure what colour and style was best. Any advice?

i have seen the mora in person and i never said its not nice or good looking! its just not what i expect from a double monk.
the shoe should look more "young" like the lowndes with its nice toebox.

and of course i would prefer new in box but i dont care too much if the shoe is used when the price is right

I like the single monks more too, but am on the fence on purchasing any dress shoes for now.
