I got mine in NY because they just by chance had 1 pair...they normally do not stock it in chestnut.

It's a sharp shoe...and one of my favorite if not my favorite of C&J.

Yes very sharp. I saw it last night at the shoe store when I bought the Westbourne. They did not have the Westbourne in black in stock so they ordered it. I called this morning and the gentleman is holding the Monkton in chestnut till I pick up the Westbourne.

Did they have any special Parisienne makeups?

There are a few exclusive French models, including the Somerville and Scarsdale (handgrade).

Yes, it is the lighting of the room that gives them that tint...

Funnily enough, 15 minutes after I have posted this, I received a phone call, saying that my Monktons have arrived. So I picked them up today. And yes, they are definitely a bit reddish.

Would a brown polish help?

Now I'm concerned that the Monkton that's on hold for me has a reddish tint.

Don't be concerned too much. It's just a hint of red, and it heavily depends on the lighting conditions. I'm personally going to use a burgundy or mahogany polish, to develop it even further. You can use a brown one, to exterminate it.

You won't go wrong with the chestnut monkton...don't fret over it.

 

If its a major concern to you...i'll wear mine today and try to get some good pics in natural lighting.

Don't mention it, thank you for sharing.

They are a great colour that you can take a couple of shades either way depending on which polish you use on which day. Superb choice.

What's everyone's thoughts on the Wexford? Can't seem to find any pictures or real posts about them here.
