    I do not dislike the shoe but am not in love with the toe-cap on the 8000 last like on the John Lobb Derwent...

    Ignoring everything else, I prefer toe caps, but it can change from pair to pair, really.

    Cap toe, just looks better proportionally imo. Plus, it facilitates 'proper' creasing.

    Forget double monks.
    I think they're a fad and otherwise ugly.
