Just wonder what people's thoughts are on this pair of faragamo shoes. The picture doesn't represent the colours too accurately but better than nothing.

Single buckle monk straps don't seem to get much love around here, often described as being like "Pilgrim shoes." If you like them use your own judgement, it is your style after all.

Need some help with Allen Edmonds sizing. I wear the Mora and Clifton in 11.5D. I want to fit the Neumok, so before ordering I went to a local store that only had the Park Ave (PA) and tried it on since it is built on the 5 last. I found the PA 11.5D to be loose in the right heel and the 11D was too narrow. Searching the forum I found posts that suggested going down 0.5 size and up 1 in the width, so I ordered the Neumok in 11E and 11.5D for good measure.

The Neumok 11E was far too loose in both the heels. The 11.5D seemed to fit much better than compared with the PA, but the right heel slips a little. The 11.5D seemed to have roughly a whole inch of extra room in the toe, but didn't feel like clown shoes.

Any suggestions on what size I should return them for? Given the extra room I was thinking an 11D might be the right size, but wondering if it will throw the fit off on my left foot. I need to get these returned ASAP so I appreciate any helpful suggestion..

Ok, looking at V-neck sweaters again, cashmere this time. I've been mostly looking at Polo Ralph Lauren sweaters since I got a good deal on a cashmere one and the fit is about perfect. However, I noticed that Brooks Brothers' cashmere is from Scotland so I'm wondering if I should consider that. The only thing is that I have a Merino Wool BB V-neck and it's a little too big in the body for my tastes, and at times seems like it's a little too short in length.

If there's anyone reading this who has a Medium Cashmere BB V-neck, could you measure the pit to pit and length of it please?

And in general, which would be the better choice quality-wise, BB or PRL since pricing is essentially the same? Thanks again guys.

Thank you, I appreciate your respones.

Would someone be willing to answer this question?

Can't help you with measurements, but you can't go wrong with either brand. They both put out good quality stuff that's entirely reasonable for the pricepoint they put it at.

I far prefer them. The apron on double monks looks incredibly awkward to my eye, single monks look much nicer. That configuration, with the plain toe, is one of my favorite designs. Hell, I'm wearing an incredibly similar pair of vintage AEs right now. In the same color as those. Great shoe, I love them with both jeans and suits.

I'm actually looking for a pair of Plain toe bluchers myself, kenilworth's look perfect but they fit me very poorly and I had to let them go... anyone have any suggestions for a similar shoe?

Uniqlo makes a great thin one for sub $50

thing is, I'm on a bit of a budget, looking for something in the range of 150-200. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

I have literally never seen monk straps described that way on SF. SF seems to love monk straps, single or double, far more than the general public does.

Yes, we are talking about less than a mile and that much snow. We're also talking about sub 0F temperatures. I don't know why it is that I assumed regular dress shoes can't be used. I suppose I'd expect the shoes not to like it, and me not like the cold. Maybe I'm wrong.

Hush puppies should have something. Though I don't know if this brand would be considered worthy by the typical forum standards.
