    TWO buckles per boot. I'm exhausted just thinking of it.

    :foo:

    I can understand the apparent fastidiousness of the two buckles (I believe there is a similar RLPL model in non-boot form called the Ancel) when it isn't a boot; I've never been a huge fan of double monks. However, when it is an ankle boot I think it adds a certain rustic charm to the overall look. It is really hard for me to explain why but the combination of the two criss-crossing buckles coupled with the (what appears to be) 888 last on an ankle boot all work well together, in my opinion, even though they are dissimilar in design and looks. However, I can see how it could be construed as too fussy. Horses for courses.

    I'm indifferent to it, but it kind of looks like a backwards jodhpur.

    Yes indeed, it's on the 888. Didn't see it when we were last there in March, though we did spot Ahnuld :smarmy:

    Would much prefer a single strap in a boot configuration. Olney? Single strap to me is cleaner in appearance yet still has a certain uniqueness to it over other non-strap boots. But then I generally prefer single monks over double. If pressed, I'd choose the Lobb William monk boot over this example.

    if someone put a gun to your head to choose between 2 pairs of $1000+ shoes, you'd go with JL? you're a brave man :tounge:

    The courage exhibited on this thread this evening is inspirational.

    Could the citizens of London have been any more admirable in their resolve during WWII?

    I think not.

    If a gun was involved I'd take the bullet. Having to choose a double strap over a single would kill me anyway. That plus never being able to weather the comments on SF telling me how I erred on my choice :)

    I still haven't recovered from my Cleverley's being call Eastern Europeanesque or something to that effect. :)
