    I'm looking to purchase burgundy/maroon double monks.I first came across these carmina Shoes from Epaulet that go for $825
    [​IMG]

    They are a little over my budget of $700 but are still an option.

    I then came across a pair of Magnannis that I can get for $159 that were originally $459 at Last Call.

    Which pair should I go for?Any other recommended shoes besides these two?

    You can always order MTO ones from Meermin in either calf or cordovan. Should set you back about 300-400 dollars, depending on which features you go for.

    ^I second Vass. Calf is give or take $700, and you get hand-welted shoes with lasted shoetrees.

    Epaulet's pricing is ridiculous. Shell boots can be had for $600 off Carmina's eboutique; whole-cuts for less than that. You might want to try e-mailing Betty to see if they have any in their Spain stores (or PM LuisCF for Paris store stock).

    You can't ignore C&J if double monks are what you're after.

    I was looking at C&J's but from what I know they don't have double monks in a burgundy type color

    Andrew Lock is the only one that comes to mind, but I haven't seen them in the flesh. MTO Allen Edmonds might be an option, too. Lots of info on that process (which I don't 100% get) on the AE thread.

    Lock's are more brown than burgundy. Comfortable and priced well though.

    Glad to have somebody chiming in -- all the photos on their site look reddish, but the ones I've seen on tumblr look more brown.

    The Herring Shakespeare II comes in burg.

    Gaziano & Girling has the Oakham in vintage cherry. It's a gorgeous shoe, though it's out of your stated price range and may be a little too red for your tastes:

    FWIW, I just got an email from Epaulet saying they don't plan to re-stock the Salinger double monks from Carmina, but would be open to a group order in burgundy shell cordovan at about $725 per pair. If you are interested, you can post the suggestion in the SW&D Epaulet x Carmina thread and find like-minded buyers.
