When I try to conceive a truly versatile shoe no configuration seems to fit the bill. Any ideas?

I don't find them contrived at all. I think you can wear them in place of loafers. In the US, loafers are seen worn with suits and jeans. I've been wearing the same pair of double monks for about 6-7 years, and only recently I'm hearing of the backlash. I don't get it.

Looks like it to me, but you can really only tell by feeling it.

Maybe I should give them away.

I have a really, really radical idea. Ready? Here goes: take them out of your closet and wear them. *ducks*

Agreed.

After whnay set the precedent, I think it's finally in 'good taste' to resell biggrin.gif

Now if only Manton would do a closet clean.

It would shut the internet down for 48 straight hours at least.

while i love the sentiment, i think it is still important to remember, that this thread =/= SF. some of the participants in this thread may hate double monks, but SF on a whole does not. i think that they can be both dandified, and perfectly elegant. its more dependent on how the wearer is using them, than the shoe itself, in most circumstances, imo.

doesn't look affected or doesn't look good?

Anyways, in what context do you wear suits? For everyday office wear, I'd say you could use your dub monks without a problem - they are beautiful.

post #6855 of 12564

Let me explain my position smile.gif

 

I love the style.

I do not like fashion

 

But the style is very different.

 

I like the English style, but I also like the modern Italian style (the version of it that without the strong influence of fashion).

 

I allow myself to dress differently, play and experiment.

I could dress in a simple, classic style every day and look for 1000000 $. But it's boring!

 

After all, a good recipe for business style is very simple and banal:

 

Take sewn to order a blue or gray suit, worsted cloth or flannel, no big relief.

Take a white or blue shirt is sewn to order (or purchased)

Take a dark tie (solid color, textured, with a small figure)

Take the dark shoes and a classic toe

Take a handkerchief in breast tone shirt with piping or small patterns in color suit or tie or shoes

 

All. Classic rigorously prepared.

 

If you take a good fabric and sewed all custom made or bought for quite a lot of money - that turned out very well.

 

But this incredibly boring and do not have to think! You only need to pay the money and not be color-blind.

 

Sometimes I dress like this, but not often, because, once again I'm interested in also other areas of style.

 

For me, style - it's not only the classics, as well as something at the intersection of classic and fashion. Where you can experiment, mix, think.

 

Provided that all done on the basis of the classics (strict style, English country style, American style of 20-30 years and 50-60 years, etc.)

 

In general I think is interesting to experiment, so that would be beautiful.

 

I'm not a slave to a strict business style. But I love it. Sometimes.

I just let myself love the great variety of styles. (Within good taste and based on the classics)

 

And that, I wish you all! biggrin.gif
