    I actually have the Leffot MIller already and contemplating if I need one more :embar: The Benson looks pretty cool as well but I'm more of a boot person

    Give me this weekend to think about it :nodding:

    Don't sleep on the Benson MTO...Can't imagine a more beautiful single monk strap. Particularly inaccessible at this fabulous price. We need only a few more...Get on it. :slayer:

    Definitely!!! As long as you rock some nice dark raw denim that are slim and the rest of the outfit is of a similar aesthetic, you would be good to go. Straight stylin!

    Update - Order count so far for the AS Miller boot is 4 and AS Benson is 2

    Would be great to put the order for both into Alfred Sargent at the end of next week if possible to get them into production.

    Any questions, please just ask.

    Here is a great picture of the AS Ramsey in Whiskey Cordovan mto - this shows the first few pairs are ready to be lasted by hand

    I would definitely jump on it but I am playing around with the last sizing. I have the 99 in calf and it is slightly on the snug size so I went .5 up on the Ramsey (hoping for a better fit and since it is shell). Prefer to see if the .5 up works better or if I should stick with my regular size.

    With all these recent shell purchases, I think I will go from 0% of my shoes being made from shell in 2011 to 33% this year.

    ^For sizing, I'd recommend going down a full size, particularly in shell. Shell can't be pulled as tight to the last as calf can, so the shoe ends up being a bit loose.

    I am not sure I agree that you should go down a full size on the 99 last; I think they would be too short then. I am pretty TTS 10.5D and I have the Ramsey in navy crust in 10F that is a bit wide for me. In this Benson version I went down a width to 10E and I think that will be spot on. I have tried a shell Ramsey in 9.5F and that was much too tight. For refernece, I wear a 10D in Barrie and 10.5D in Leydon, Plaza, Hampton, etc.

    I will have to respectfully disagree that the balmoral boot is better; very different aesthetic, but balmoral boots can be found elsewhere. I haven't seen anything half as nice as the style and sleekness of the Benson in a single monkstrap from any of the elite makers. At least for me.

    Best case scenario would be to have both. Hahaha.

    When can we expect a navy shell double monk MTO?
