Double monk with dark toe cap.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi there people,

Can anyone inform me as to where I can buy the shoe on the left in this picture please? I haven't seen it in any of the shoe shops down Jermyn Street, even John Lobb.






I really like the dark brown toe cap with the contrasting mid brown on the rest of the shoe, beautiful touch.

Thank you,
swlondon.

JL does these shoes as MTO, take a look here:

Theirs are different because the one above has only the toe cap contrasting.

Also I was really hoping that maybe I could get these RTW and for around £350, as opposed to JL prices.

in Danielle6's case beggars CAN be choosers

 

This guy has been begging for a discount on the EGs I am selling and then keeps equivocating on whether the size is right.

Anyone thinking of  selling to Danile6 should approach with extreme caution as time wasting is of the highest probability

Anyone know any of any other manufacturers of this shoe by any chance? Still after them.

They look to me like hey have just been darkened with polish on the toe caps. Not too hard to do. Not to my taste, but each to their own.

This is quite silly, but Lino Leluzzi wears the same exact darkened toe cap double monks, which he sells in his shop, Al Bazar, just outside of Milan. Much too sprezzy for me, and very limited wardrobe pairings IMO, but hey, to each his own.

buy a pair in tan.  dye the toe cap to dark brown.  problem solved.

You can ask Carmina or Vass to do a custom MTO for a lot less money than what John Lobb will charge.

Thank you for the replies guys.

I may try darkening a pair with dye/polish.

+1, very easy

without doing MTO orders, you can find Loake Cannon and Meermin Monks, both available in tan at low prices.

BTW the shoes in the picture are of Lino himself, they are made in italy and sold in his shop with the al bazar brand.
