Opinions on Alden Cordovan Monk Strap - Page 3
Agreements and disagreements. Yes on the obsession. First of all, few shoes are more beautiful than Alden's Color 8 shell cordovans. And while I get the strap width prejudice, and even those who prefer two straps (never!), the narrow strap is actually one of the things I love about this shoe. Unfortunately, you have to live with the gold buckle to get the cordovan that is so much of its appeal. If they ever offer color eight shell cordovan monk straps with a silver buckle, I will raid my 401 (k).
