1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Real nice monks with small side elastic. Don't know how these compare to Masterpieces as I never had them but the leather on this is real nice and looks like it will take a rich shine. Selling because they are too big (I'm a US 10.5). these will fit a US 11 and probably a US 11.5 (they measure 12 3/8 x 4 3/8). Will come with box, $185 shipped in the states.

    Ooooh beautiful shoes - looks like they will be 1/2 size too small for me, though.

    For some reason the strap looks a bit unconventional for some reason - any idea why?

    It's small, which I actually like and the shoe has a small elastic on the side under the buckle. Shoe looks real good on the foot and the small buckle makes it seem sleeker. Some monks with the big buckle and strap look too much like Pilgrim shoes for my taste.

    Are these the Keynsham model, last 196, by Grenson?

    If they were a 10.5 theyd be mine (or yours since you wouldn't be selling). Anyway they look great and thanks for saving me $185!

    Perhaps because of uniform width of the strap? Monk straps generally taper toward the tag end to varying degrees...

    My Tramezzas look nice, Ed! [​IMG]
