Ahh no chukkas at Rider.

I was considering those, but the last seems too elongated and toebox too narrow to be worn casually.

@Claghorn Are pictures of the neckties on Exquisite Trimmings darker on lighter than real life?

The rust suede on the rider boot website is very tempting

What do you guys think of double monks? I already have a pair in burgundy calf, but I feel they would be more versatile in suede.

Love my suede double monks.  Assuming you don't hate the style (some do), it's a highly versatile shoe that I'd wear with anything short of a CBD rig.

Not a fan of any of the lasts. All a bit too pointy for my taste. Also not a fan of the soles. In all, the construction doesn't seem to be on par with their main line. But at a $130 a pop, I guess that's to be expected.

I dislike double monks; they seem archaic. My wife calls them dwarf shoes. I did have a pair for a while, and they were in suede. Were I ever to get them again, I'd get them in suede.

Whatever cachet double monks still had was eroded after being flooded into the market over the last several years. I don't know about archaic, but definitely elfin and French. Suede is definitely cartoon level. Brown calf with a suit, with the straps buried under a break, maybe. Unfortunately they are the uniform of every wannabe guy in Asia and Finland, so best left to a cooling period. Put them in your time capsule and unearth in 10 years along with pocket squares.

My suede Double monks get a ton of wear. I don't get the comment about archaic, but too each their own. I get a lot of compliments on the two double monks I currently wear.

Double monks are great. As long as they look good, which I think they do, I don't care how popular or over saturated they are.

What brand double monks do you guys wear ( which lasts too?)
