Double Monk Conundrum - Page 10

John Lobb and St. Crispin make DM ankle boots; Barker Black makes a tripple monk I believe.

Bringing up an old thread to get some feedbacks. I got the 40% BB discount card good for one item. I ended up buying a Peal & Co brown double monk, made by Crockett & Jones on the 341 last:

The actual color of the shoes are much darker and came out to $410 with tax.
 

I have two questions:

 

1. Between the black and brown, which one is a better purchase? I don't think the brown looks as good when dressed down compared to the black. Thoughts?

 

2. Are there better options at similar price point? I know this has been discussed before but what are some thoughts a more chiseled toe, like the CJ Lowndes or the Paul Stuart Newbery? And thoughts on the Carmina double monks compared to this? I like the carmina shoes that epaulet has but it will run an additional $200.

 

Thanks
