    Those are supposed to be faux laces, they give slip-ons a little bit more of the look of a lace-up shoe. Personally, I like them, and have liked them ever since I saw Cleverley do it on their Churchill model, but I'd certainly imagine that they're not for everyone.


    Thanks for the info!

    Well, this theard is going to the dogs.

    That faux lace treatment turned up in another maker's line, but can't recall who.

    Right - I have to say that I'm not a fan of that treatment.

    Monday is when they are supposed to arrive. Currently they are stuck in Kentucky. And they should be able to satisfy the Deco calf debate as well.

    Since we seem to be in all talk and no photo mode here.

    I have a pair of Dub Monks arriving this week.........in Cherry.

    They're just RTW from the Bespoke site, nothing custom.

    I hope they are as vulgar as I believe they'll be.
