Got my second pair of Zee's - A pair of brown double monks.
I gave them pictures from http://www.sidmashburn.com/sid-mashburn-double-monk-strap-brown-burnish.html to copy . i asked for a more rounded/conservative toe, since the other double monk samples at their store are too pointy for my taste, however the toe ended up being a little too square-ish. The shoes are quite chunky but i actually like them that way.
I experimented with some leather dyes and actually ended up with a dark brownish burgundy color (original color was more similar to the Sid Mashburns).
These have been worn about half a dozen times.
hkhobo - those shoes are beautiful! great work with the leather dye. do you have a GY welt on these as well? I would very much like to emulate the color you achieved here. any tips on how you pulled it off?
I just visited Zee's for the first time and had a pair of dark brown suede cap toes as well as a belt and card case. Overall I have been very pleased with the end result for the price although the quality of leather for the belt is not what I had expected and whatever kind of leather they used for the soles of the shoes is pretty poor. I will post photos over the weekend for those of you that may be interested.
