    Weird, they cost the same. Same as Antibes, St Tropez. Only Biarritz is cheaper amongst loafers. Sure Holkham vs monaco is handsewn vs machine?

    That is odd but like I said it was only a guess, I haven't priced anything yet.

    It appears so, at least from the pictures I've seen.

    Two. a vint oak st james 2 mh71 (F width) and another for vint oak Holkham or monaco.

    Think the one for monaco is closer.

    Black st james just get them at Khaki Carmel. Think they come with shoe trees. Tg73 no less, your favorite to go along with cherry

    I just had my sizing questions for this particular Last answered by @Leaves, that hardly makes me an expert. However if I were you I would email Skoak Sales and ask one of those kind gentleman to assist you. So can I mark you down as interested but not yet confirmed?
