Which John Lobb double monk are you interested in? Â The Williams/Vintage or the 2002? As you know, most of these English companies have been in business for ages, so they have different lines; I am not sure which line of Grenson you are refering to, but (having seen them in person) I would rate Grenson on the same level as Trickers or New & Lingwood, as the leather is soft and uniform, but not quite like Edward Green. Â If I remember right, Grenson came out with the double monk pretty recently, and the two straps a parallel to each other compared to others (like Lobb), where the top strap is curved according to the foot. Â Mantellassi makes double monk strap for Borrelli. Â On display, it is available in brown suede. Â Lobb has the Williams/Vintage made in every leather (and color) imaginable (even white pebble). Â Crockett & Jones also has one called Cadogan in burnished brown, black or pebble (like Lobb's Williams). Â In US currency, Lobb's Williams - $1000+ ($995 at Saks during winter sale), Lobb's 2002 - $1200+ (limited quantity), Borrelli (Mantellassi) - $895.00 (in New York), C&J Cadogan - roughly US$500+. Â Edward Green's Westminster - $1500+ at Saks (I think it's sold out as of December 2002). Â Ferragamo also makes one for much less.
