    Nice looking shoes. If they're in Tricker's coffee leather they'll actually be a shade or two darker than the photos make them appear, but as they age you'll get these lighter, honeyish tones coming through. I have a pair of the Henry jodhpur boots in that colour which I'm very attached to.

    Quite like the look of the low-cut chelseas they've got on the same last. Pity I'm out of the shoe market for the moment.

    Waiting for them to pop up in my size (9.5 UK). I would love to get a black double monk. BTW, should I get the same size as in C&J ?

    Not sure on this last. I'm an 8E in the 348 so getting the same size for these.

    Same reasoning for me, 7E in 348, got a 7E in these.

    BTW looks like they're discharging a whole lot, maybe the shop that ordered them went down ...

    Woweezowee! I actually bought the same coffee coloured Trickers double monks from a fellow Singaporean SF member today. Very nice indeed. Like some of you I was waiting for a CJ Lowdnes on the 'bay or a trip to P Lal in KL but the offer was too good to pass.

    No regrets and the fact that AJ said it was made to Lobbs standard for the Japanese market makes feel even more smug now.

    i pulled the trigger on the size 8E double monks as well, at $100 usd cheaper than the lowndes, this is definitely a steal. i figured 8E trickers = 8E C&J 348 last?

    That's what we're all thinking... if not - I'm sure B&S will see a shed loads of trickers monks very soon...

    I might be wrong, but that looks like a regular flat sole, painted to look like a bevelled sole.

    I don't know if this is exactly the same, but Pediwear has these:

    Different shoe , these are as Moo has said a MTO for a retailer in Japan. If you look these are of far better quality and different in many respects.
