Just more traditional, which the Lopez is. I have a pair of Ashley that are on a sharper last. I would wear the pictured loafers more comfortably and I am far from my 80's. I actually prefer the rounder toe (similar to Alden's Van last) since it's more casual. I can't get away with my Ashley (or my G&G's Antibes) with casual shorts. @dijor: I think both would look fine. I personally prefer the standard cap instead of half brogue on monks.
