The only monk samples I could find were the Sagittari and Sagittari II, both of which can be had on the Argentum line. There is also the wholecut, Signifer and also the Signifer in Bi-material (leather and suede.) I personally like the Captoe version as it will help hide creasing. On a argentum hawksbill / argentum chisel 2 last with leather sole. These 2 lasts would give it a slim and sleek look and accentuate the Sagittari. We have room for modifications as well.

Let me know what you think.

@Res @Bespokeplad I ABSOLUTELY LOVE WHERE YOU ARE GOING WITH THIS !!!!

I would be in for a range of double monks GMTOs eg;

Signifier in tone on tone ie dark brown leather and matching dark brown suede (this is a really fantastic design, just look at these shots, amazing, amazing, but the high contrast makeup in the webshop may be too casual for office?)

The creasing is a concern for me too but honestly, AM leather is so great, it's not a deal breaker :)

or

Sagittari in Chisel 1, am also okay with Chisel 2 last which is a bit of an acquired taste but captoe balances this out nicely, along the lines of the Bestetti images I posted earlier. I think this makeup is in Chisel 2 by regular forum contributor @shirtingfantasy?

Wouldn't mind the wholecut then, not a big fan of the suede strap.
@Res

If you are worried about creasing, the Sagittari captoe is your safest bet - and a very classic and beautiful shoe!

If you like the swept monk, I dug around his instagram just now and found two very direct comparisons for you;
  • Signifier 1 wholecut with a better angle of the seamless back
  • Signifier 2 in one leather.
@Bespokeplad, do you have a preferred model?

incidentally I was wearing the pair today...

if you are going to GMTO, wholecut signifier should be the luxury choice 😎

Meccariello’s rendition of Becketts... no GMTO needed, and free to choose your own patina 🤤

He must have changed his olive green definition lately used to be a lot brown looking at some of his old IG picture

Oh I see it now. Unless it is the lighting (which I doubt), that olive green looks different than the one in this picture. I really like this version.

@clee1982 as far as what we know... his colours are never "exact" :p
