Those black double monks posted a while back in the buffalo have burned a hole in my brain. A very expensive and tempting hole.

Both models are really nice, I picked out that Bonafé model myself, it's an old archive model.

I was supposed to meet with SC during their visit to Stockholm but something came up. Hopefully I will see Phillip the next time he visits.

Classic/Riva looks nice but they don't fit me anywhere close as well as Sailor.

p.s., I like Classic much better.  Riva's chisel toe tapering is way too eye catching for my taste.  tongue.gif

The Riva last is best suited for plain toes and maybe the occasional wingtip, but always only if there is no toe-medallion. For example a Chukka on the Riva is nice, or a monk wothout any decoration in the toe area. In other cases go for the classic. :-)

Sailor Last and Dainite Sole.

I'm a sucker for a classic look...drooling over these.  St. Crispin's classic last is timeless and absolutely gorgeous, IMO.  StCs are totally out of my league! smile.gif

 

 

Hats off to LeatherFoot for offering such great styles!
