That would be a pretty nice makeup as well.
But it does seem a little difficult to gather interests for CXL.....
Agreed, they are beautiful. One thing I don't like about the single monk though is the width of the buckle, not as sleek as the rest of the shoe.
Does anyone know if StC have access to narrower buckles to match the width of the strap?
I don't know the difference between Hidro and Janus, but if the latter is thicker and more coarse then my preference would definitely lie with the former. I might be in for a lighter coloured suede chukka once my existing GMTO Bonafe suede chukka comes through and I can see how the shade plays out IRL. I'd be open to most lasts other than 946.
What are your thoughts on the coloring? I don't want sand suede but I'm fine with a darker beige or light / medium brown. I want to be able to wear it in the summer with shorts but also to be able to wear with jeans or khaki in the fall without a problem.
The Janus Maracca and Janus Snuff both fit the bill in terms of color, but i guess i would have to know if they were even available because i was told that they are being phased out now. In terms of the hidro, what options do you think would work?
Hidro Canapa (like EG mushroom, which is a great beige color)
Hidro Walnut (says like GG Fox suede which is very nice and could be quite versatile for summer and fall - thoughts?)
Hidro Tabacco (like EG coffee suede, which i guess could work for summer and fall - thoughts?)
