They remind me of the shoes my mother used to make me wear when I was 8 and I swore that I'd never wear this crap when I grew up. And I haven't for 50 years.

The construction and the quality of the leather is no doubt the finest. But it's just too round for my taste and my foot.

Thank you. We're all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.

Give my regards to the other gastropods.

The JLs are good.  Haters probably just haven't handled them in person.

I have handled the JLs. As I said I can appreciate the quality of them. But the shape just isn't my cuppa.

But then again, I'm the guy with red G&Gs so obviously I have a different aesthetic.

In any case, it's all good. That's what makes life interesting. If we were all alike and dressed alike it would be pretty hard to bear.

Of course, there are all tools for different jobs and for creating harmonious proportions.  Depending on the diameter of the trouser and level of break, a large, blobbier shoe may be totally uncalled for.  Sometimes you need needlenose pliers and sometimes a wrench.

 

That said, we have a special VIP seating for owners of red G&G shoes, if you'll just step over here...

I think the JL Williams are the best all around, long-term double monks that you can buy.

Clearly, your mom has better style than you. Even after 50 years.

Anyone tried the Holyrood by Cheaney?

A little bump; Seems like Loake has joined the double monk world: Loake Cannon. For a low budget monk I think they look absolutely stunning, and since they are in the 1880-line, the quality should be acceptable. What are peoples opinion on these? Have the fab blown over?
