Hi there. I am in the market for some brown double monks that are cheaper than the C&J Lowndes but still very stylish and was seeking your advice. I noticed some on sale at Shipton & Heneage but they seem to be 'tan' rather than the sort of dark or medium brown that I'm going for. I found the Loake Blackfriars but the straps look too close together, do you think? Other suggestions? Thanks.
