    Double monks are the fugliest looking shoe made. But I guess you can buy those Chinese made ones mentioned here for $200.

    This statement makes you a bonafide idiot.

    Just spend more and buy fewer shoes.

    That's what I may do. Just save for a few more months and buy a nice pair of Allen Edmonds or something comparable.


    How is the construction of Bexley? This is the first time I've heard of them.

    Thanks for the shares.


    Really? Really? Really?

    You can wear double MS with a suit or even jeans. They are awesome. Some can be beautiful. Check out Ralph Laurens double monk straps and try to tell me they are the ugliest shoes.

    Meermin and Loake go for around 200$ if I'm not mistaken.

    Well, they may not be the fugliest shoe made as evidenced above, but certainly the most over hyped of all time here. I was a victim of that and purchased a nice pair only to discover that I hated them.

    The good news, the hype and groupthink is so strong that you can sell them really easy. Mine sold like in 10 minutes.

    Not over hyped, they are classics that are becoming popular.


    Thanks!
