I'm not sure where the monks themselves have come from, but possibly Septieme Largeur (http://www.septiemelargeur.fr/rennan--forme-206-naturel-a-patiner-p17875-fr.html), They do their own custom patinas of course, but also sell the plain crust shoes if you want to arrange your own, so I think that must be it.
I've seen a picture of camouflaged monks like that by Alexander Nurulaeff of "Dandy Shoe Care" in Rome (http://www.dandyshoecare.it). He does all sorts of custom patina stuff, but I think this is one of his signature things, called "Urban Jungle" or something. Hang on...let me see....yep, here it is: http://www.theshoesnobblog.com/2012/08/todays-favorites-camouflage-patina-by.html
I've not had anything from him myself although I did make some enquiries. Very responsive and helpful guy, and if you don't like this, his portfolio is pretty impressive.
I really, really love this from top to toe. Your crazy roped shoulders make me smile. Thank you, individuality makes the world a better place.
On the flip side of that, funeral today, so black tie, no bright socks or coloured laces, and slip-on monks for easy divestment at the mosque.
IMHO, Stillig, that falls down just the wrong side of the dandy / over-sprezzed divide. I think it's the scarf that just tips it over, because the jacket is great. And it's usually pretty safe to say that if Hampton likes it, it's probably wrong in some way!
