SonofGoldman: I would go with the classic for that shoe. A double monk is eye-catching enough that I feel a too aggressive of a last would make it look overdone and cheap looking. Just my opinion.

   this is my 2nd using the shrunken leather. it wears well & holds its shape.

   the textures that run from pebbled to stretched in different areas of the shoe is what does it for me.

I really loved that pair of buffalo double monks. The buffalo is similar to shrunken calf, but it is a little more subtle in texture. For whatever reason the areas lasted tight like the toe and heel seem to look smoother than the shrunken calf. It gives a really cool contrast to the high shine areas versus low shine (toe and heel vs. vamp and throat).

Speaking of green, I tried on this pair at Leatherfoot and positively fell in love with them. They won't be my first pair of St. C's, but might well be my second.

You mean the one man ton ordered in blackish brown? What last was that?

I believe they were just plain black buffalo. I am pretty sure it was classic, or riva last. I think it was an Ethan Newton, or Armoury picture.
post #1286 of 2966
Not sure if you mean the ones I ordered?






The Buffalo wasn't actually in the swatch book but Mark @ The Armoury recommended it. Very glad I took his advice.

Yep! There it is.

You should post a pic so we can see how they are breaking in and aging.
