I am interested in these Sutor Mantellassi double monks. Thoughts please. Thanks.
Nice!!! Color is nice
Anything Sutor is going to be good, come on
You'll regret layin' down those bill$ when Odd Future starts rapping about "Dubby monks" on their next single.
Can't wait. Please alert fxh from Down Under forum he will want to know ASAP.
Really, we should use the same naming convention as brogues. These would be full monks and the single strap version would be called half monks or semi-monks, as it reveals the true position: that people with one buckle are missing out by half.
I'm not crazy about the design running along the strip at the cap. I'd prefer something simple with no pattern.
Good looking shoes in a great shade of brown!
Any further thoughts? Thanks!
I'm not a fan of the design on the cap, but they're not bad shoes. That's the type of thing that guys on this site care about, but no one in real life will care. They'll love the shoes.
Thoughts: monks/double monks are one of the most hideous shoe styles ever created.
That said, these ones don't look any more hideous than the typical double monk. So if you're convinced you want a pair, might as well get these.
Jack, it seems, only thinks inside the box.
And what, say you, regarding triple monks?
What 'bout them apples? huh?
Sutor makes great quality. You won't be disappointed in that regard.
Color is great. So if the last fits your foor and your style, they rock.
Good shoe, the semi-brogue is a nice change of pace. If you like that detail, then go for it!
