1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Been watching them for several weeks (it's the second time they've been posted). They've got my size, but I've never worn monk straps....Hmmm.

    Buckle up for style, friend. Seriously, if you've never owned a pair of monkstraps, do yourself a favor, whether its these or some other iteration. Stylish, versatile and classic, a nice pair of monks will elevate your personal style and separate you from the crowd. You'll never look back except to say "how come I waited so long?" Do it.

    Certainly for an internet sale. Ferragamo Monks almost retail for that price.

    I have a pair of Tramezza monks in black suede. They're phenomenal shoes if you like the Ferragamo styling. I saw various Tramezza's at my local NM Last Call this weekend for $265. So I'd say the ebay price is high but not absolutely intolerable.

    Ah, very nice. Wasn't Rider endorsing the Tremazza line quality as being exceptionally high? Thinman, I resisted monks myself and will echo AJL. Get a pair. I wear mine all the time. They're most certainly not of Tremazza quality, but stylish nonetheless (IMO). I think I'll wear them today.

    For that price (or very close), you could get a special order pair of Martengani monks with custom styling and color from Rider.

    True that. They used to offer better prices though.
