    yeah, trusnow have really dumbed it down with pretty much all their brands; better to grab some if you're ever overseas. definitely cheaper than getting them here, even if on sale.

    Meh, the real epidemic is shoes that are black, square-toed, cemented, and corrected-grained. They're basically CANCER

    Any recommendations for slim seersucker pants? Only ones I've found so far are J. Crew (ha).

    I have a Brooks Brothers pair, too big for me (and you too I would imagine, they are a 36", if anyone is interested) - but maybe Brooks Brothers or Lands End might have some.

    Bah! I'm wearing a pair today. Can't say I've noticed them being an epidemic in Melbourne, although I've noticed them in a few more shops these days.

    I spot a few every week. Always tan to mid brown calf. In fact spotted a pair this morning at Freshwater on Southbank.

    Tobs: I have no idea what you're talking about I have never heard of let alone seen such things as square toed shoes.

    I have been planning to buy a pair of dub monk for some times now. Most probably in dark brown (possibly burnished).I think dob monk is a bit too sleek; so still hesitating. To be honest I haven’t seen that many dob monks in Sydney CBD. I think its more Melbourne ’ish !:D

    Sorry if you found the question funny. Was asking as a lot of the posts i read here are about shoes, and other clothing items and accessories comming in from overseas . If it is the wrong forum to ask in i am sorry.

    jester78, the way I read it is that with such an esoteric item, this is probably the one forum you could ask that question in - definitely the right place [​IMG]

    FWIW, I've not had any such issues but then again, I've not bought any items like that.

    I know double monks are kind of a silly #menswear cliche now, but disirregardless, I like them and I think they look great. So double monk yourself post haste, I say.
