Which do people prefer? Quality? Is a monk strap versitile enough to wear with business casual and/or a suit? Can this be worn with blue, tan, and charcoal? This is my first foray into English shoes, stepping up from my collection of Ferragamo and To Boot. The Grenson monk would be from Bennie's, or picking up the C&J from Barney's. I think the C&J from Barney's is comparable to the Malvern in chestnut.
