    is your question about the style of the shoe or the shoe itself? i really like the gravati's i have owned as far as construction, fit, comfort etc. but i don't like double monks no matter who makes them.

    That is an excellent price for a quality pair of shoes. Everyone I know who has bought Gravatis raves about how comfortable they are.


    Double monks are classic. If he likes the style he should buy them, although they may not be for everybody. Just because a few bloggers have fixated on them the last two years doesn't change that.

    Comments like yours show a total lack of knowledge of men's fashion and style.

    Just because I don't happen to agree with your opinion doesn't make me less knowledgeable about men's style... :satisfied:

    I think double monks have become too 'fashionable' to wear with most things but its not for me..

    I have a pair of Gravati bluchers I bought off a forum member last year, and they are super comfortable, beautiful shoes. I personally like double monks, and have been meaning to pick some up at some point, so if you wouldn't mean divulging your source, I would love to know too...

    These them? [​IMG]

    I don't think I would pick them up now that I've seen them for myself. These on the other hand....if only they were my size. Anybody out there looking for 11M tux shoes?

    To offer a helpful reply, -- which can be a rarity on this sitge --- I just received a pair that I bought here on SF for $245 and they look like the $500 mid-range Italian-made shoes they are. If you check around, you will see that just about eveyone has good things to say about them. They're not EG's but they're not AE's, either. At $200, assuming very good condition, a bargain. And, for what it's worth, I think double monks have some staying power. Good luck and best regards.

    For what it's worth, I just found a pair of Gravati oxfords on Zappos for $250.
