    Battle of the derby double monks. Your pick and why. And before you say anything about the JL Chapel, yes I agree and I already have a pair. 1)Edward Green Westminster [​IMG] 2)John Lobb William I/II [​IMG]

    EG. The design is just a tad more pleasant. The first EGs and JLs I got a chance to compare were these double monk models, and I was surprised at the time that the JL model just looked somehow less refined and the EG just better.

    I prefer the Edward Green...I like the more classical look about it.

    The JL looks a bit odd somehow, maybe it's the mottled colour or the cap stitching.[​IMG]

    Another vote for EG. Not a fan of monks in general but this is an easy choice.

    Based on these pictures I like the Lobb a bit better. But to be honest I don't like any double monks overall. I like the Lobb's last and the leather. I would like to see the EG on the 82, which I like significantly more than the 888 or 606 the Westminster seems to built upon.

    JL for me, they look less 'chubby', and the color look good to me [​IMG]

    Despite their similar format these are actually two very different shoes. The William in its classic brown pebble grain/double sole format is a very casual shoe. The Wetminster not so much. I like both but would wear them with different sorts of clothes.

    Edit - what's up with that William II ? That faux cap looks terrible.

    I find the EG & JLP to be equally interesting, but even the Westminster can be found in many guises. For instance 606 Haf sole peble grain @LSH [​IMG] [​IMG] As for the JLP pictured that is a William II the Willam I has a propper cap, and is discontinued (only available MTO)

    I like the color of 1 better, but I prefer the stitching details of 2
