I am a relative newbie to shoe fashion, and only have real experience with Allen Edmonds (which I bought on advice from some people).
However, now I am looking to expand my wardrobe and do not like the monkstrap shoe models offered by Allen Edmonds. I really liked the ones offered by Magnani, very sleek and stylish. However, I do not want to compromise on quality and was looking for some advice on some good looking, long-lasting, stylish monk straps.
The Magannis in question are the Magnanni Marco and Efren.
Also please try to recommend something <$500.
