The Grosvenor seems fine, but these other three are far too busy. My eyes are getting blurry even now.

Those monks looks ok.

I'm planning to take advantage of this when I get far enough down my list to place my order for the Cantebury boots where I plan to specify plain stitching on both the toecap and the horizontal ankle seam.

Exactly, you can change the brougeing to your liking. I did the opposite on my canterburys and added brouging along the balmoral-line and kept the toecap so I think there would be no problem removing the brouging on the Mayfair.

Mayfair looks nice, but I'm not really a huge fan of any of them.

What is the difference between the Deco calf and regular calf? From the pics, it looks like the Deco calf is a little like JL's museum calf, I can see faint swirls of brown color in the black. But I've never seen it in person, so I don't know for sure.

Ditto the buckling on the dub monks is all wrong IMO...set too high on the vamp FWIW.

Dub Monks are supposed to have the buckles set at an angle to set them off.

IIRC i think that the deco black is not dyed so deep as a regular aniline calf more like there antiqued/ vintage leathers that way it can be striped back to have a bleached toe

For the lulz.

I understand what you are saying but don't agree. Those double monks are of a classic style. G&G do offer a double monk through Bespoke England where both straps sweep away from the vamp - and you may prefer that model. My three pairs of Church's double monks have the top strap sweeping away but the bottom strap descending in a straight line.

As for the "Lazyman slip-ons" its another classic style which George Cleverley also offer called the "Churchill" since he reputedly loved this style of shoe. In fact I've never been tempted by this style before but I am mightly tempted by the one with the plain toe in vintage cedar.
