    I know this has been discussed before, but where can I find a pair of brown suede double monks for less than $250?

    I've checked most obvious online retailers (Neiman Marcus, Last Call, Saks, Macy's, Bluefly, etc...) but didn't find anything in that price range. :(

    Any deals on right now anywhere?


    And a picture to illustrate:

    I didn't find much for under $250. But I did find these Calvin Klein's for $150. I'm sure the quality isn't going to be anything amazing but it's all I could find.

    Can I ask who the shoes in the pic you posted are by?

    Price range is under $250. I saw the Meermin yesterday but didn't find anywhere to order. I just sent an email. I have a feeling shipping will be a b*tch. The C&J Lowndes do seem like a great shoe, but completely out of my budget :/



    Thanks, but those Calvin Klein don't look very good. I might as well wait and save up for something nicer.

    I actually don't know any details about the shoes in the pic unfortunately.

    Have you checked out the ones by Howard Yount? They're $350 but still the best deal on decent monks. There's only 7.5 left but he may do another run this fall.

    I am impressed with your finding these. For a low end buy, I would give these a pass. They are under $250 and are brown suede. Well done.

    They even come in black...

    A pair of lightly used Allen Edmonds Neumora in brown (on Ebay or here on our B&S) will be a more solid buy.

    They won't be suede but are of much better quality than the CK's.

    My brown suedes arrived from Meermin the other day - really impressed with the quality and they fit your price range. They really are your best bet at that budget.

    Is there a way of ordering them that isn't migraine inducing. I took a look in the Meermin thread and getting the shoes (at least to the US) doesn't seem like the easiest of processes.

    Just contact Meermin on their website and request to order a pair. I have a pair of double monks on the way. After a few e-mails they sent me a paypal invoice and the next day they shipped. I should have them by next thursday.

    I guess I'll go for the Meermin. Only thing is they are out of stock right now. :(
    They're receiving new stock in 30 days. They'll have a lighter brown suede too. Might be worth they wait... althought right now is the perfect season for brown suede shoes. 30 days from now, plus 1 week for shipping and we won't be far from having snow aroud here.

    There's 25% off right now on the Magnanni's posted above. Comes out to $225. Pretty good deal!
