Double Monk Strap - Help

Wanted to get some suggestions on where to find a paid or brown double monk straps in the $300/350 price range. I spotted a pair by Florseim that i loved, but it seems they were a special edition and are now sold out across the US (I live in NYC). Also saw a pair on Herring (Shakespeare) that appeared nice as well - again sold out.

Would love a few suggestions on where I might find something similar. I see Paul Stuart also has a pair - but they're about $100 or so more than I'd like to spend, which is pretty much in keeping with PS being overpriced in just about everything.

Thanks for the help!

+1 to Mora being an option, although personally I've seen it and it's a little too blobby (not pointy enough). Check out this To Boot one... construction and materials aren't in the same level but definitely sleeker and will get more attention. http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...7&postcount=13

It's basically the C&J Lowndes but at about 1/2 the price.


Why do they call it the Lowndes? Is it intended to be a knock-off?

The Lowndes on Pediwear is around 288 pounds including delivery to US, which is around $460 dollars.

LMAO, guess that's what happens when you look at the exchange rate for the Euro and not the British Pound!!
