Did anyone see Frost/Nixon - The scene about his shoe buckles? Not sure if they were monks though. I don't own any monks (yet??), but many in this thread look nice. Your girlfriend has to see them on you in the correct clothes for her to give approval. Pictures are different. Take her to the shoe store and try on the monks for her. Many guys here don't understand that she is the one you need to look good for, but don't worry, she will most likely approve when she sees them on you.

I too am looking at some. Is there a special running at PLAL? Their website doesn't seem to work very well. The list price they show for the Lowndes is $1000+ which is not going to work for me...

Any suggestions where would be good to purchase the Lowndes or other double monk recommendations?

The P.lal website lists the price in Malaysian Ringgits. You can convert from xe.com. I think they are offering free shipping to US customers in case you choose the non-express shipping. Shipton & Heneage has double monks in 3 colors including suede. Those ones are made by Cheaney. They also have a AS made tan double monk on sale in limited sizes. Pediwear has a Trickers double monk available.

Am I the only one who thinks monks look best in suede? Something about the style just looks too...smooth, for lack of a better word, in calfskin. DIG

Yeah, I agree with this. Dark brown suede in particular.

I'll be the odd man out in admitting that I don't really wear my monks. I have several pairs and rarely reach for any of them. I'm thinking of selling off some pairs I've never worn, including a pair of RLPL in chestnut. They just don't match my rustic style, I guess. So I'll advise considering what you'll wear them with before purchasing.

I'll probably keep a pair in dark brown suede.

Double Monks = good Single Monks = not so good.

No regrets whatsoever. Suits or casual, monks rock. I'll wear a pair at least 2 days per month and receive continuous compliments. -D&G (black) single monk wingtip -AE Moras (brown & black) double monk -Johnston & Murphy (apricot) single monk (bordering on vintage) -Ecco (black) single monk beaters for rainy days only

I so enjoy seeing shoes that have actually been worn on threads such as this. They have life. They have presence.
