I've used a couple of coats of Reno. It definitely does not have the feel of Alden.

More business for Saphir!!!

Nice!, EG wins. The Ramsey is not in the same league of the other 2.

What do you think of the following double monks:

https://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.%C2%AE-Double-Monk-Straps/MH00194,default,pd.html?dwvar_MH00194_Color=BRWN&contentpos=2&cgid=




Are these the C&J Lowndes? Can anyone speak to their quality?

Quality will be good. But price is not great. Wait for a sale or look at carmina?

There is a good chance that BB will have a 40% off sale on shoes on one of the remaining days of this week.

Why is there a good chance of that? What's the occasion?

post #127 of 138
Apparently between the times of 3 and 6 AM this Saturday, all shoes at BB will be 50% off, except for the Cordovan collection.

Online only, of course.

Holiday sales probably

3 and 6 AM? On a Saturday? Those are hours I'd either be drinking or sleeping, not online shopping.

They are definitely not the Lowndes-- more rounded and less elongated last. However, they are probably the same quality (bench grade) considering the price point.

Aren't some of the BB Peal & Co shoes made by Loake? Can't this be a suede version of the Loake Cannon?
post #132 of 138

Anybody have any experience or thoughts in regards to the C&J Repton availible from Ben Silver?

It's a C&J. As Steve Smith helpfully pointed out, C&J BB shoes use a 'blocky' font inside of the shoes. The Loake 'font' is larger.

Few questions:

1. Anyone have stills of the bb peal monk in brown leather?

2. What's the difference bw the sid mashburn and AS Ramsey, other than stitching and the sole? maybe the SM has a sleeker toe, but I can't tell.

Sort of unrelated, but rather than starting a new thread I thought Id post here. 

 

Does anyone know of a brand that makes a double monk boot? Ive been searching for a tan double monk strap chukka/half boot. 

This is the closest thing Ive found: 

https://www.google.com/shopping/product/717898312739100902?safe=off&sclient=psy-ab&q=tan+monk+strap+chukka&oq=tan+monk+strap+chukka&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.50500085,d.dmg,pv.xjs.s.en_US.ciY8R2R6XC8.O&biw=1236&bih=706&tch=1&ech=1&psi=6EYJUtKlJ7Xj4APJ6YDQCw.1376339775163.9&sa=X&ei=j0cJUvRO5-HgA4b7gbAF&ved=0CJABEMATMAk

But I've heard some questionable things about Stacy Adams quality, and the boot is generally far from perfect. They are also not offered in tan. 

 

I thought maybe with the wealth of info on double monks here someone may know! Appreciate any feedback.
