    Guys,

    Style advice wanted. Yeah, it is all about personal preferenses, but since I simpy cannot make My mind up...

    Going for dark brown suede. Which do you prefer? The double monk or the cap toe oxford?
    Both come with full rubber sole and on the Hiro last.

    Please advice!

    It all depends on what you wear, but I noticed you were a swede and double monks are quite popular here in the north.

    Oxford. Dub monk will slip in and out of fashion, cap toe's are forever.

    In this case then wouldn't you want to get dub monks and save up for a pair of better cap toes?

    If I were in shortage of better shoes I would definitely go for the oxfors, but I'm not. I have at least 10 oxfords, 3-4 derbys and some boots.
    No loafers, no monks. On one hand; it is clear that I have a preferens for oxfords, so why not go the safe route? On the other hand; isn't it time to broaden the scope?

    Hell, I don't know...



    I'm mostly wearing suits for work (no tie), and jeans/chinos with a blazer in weekends.

    I would say double monks, but that's just because I love mine C&J. May I ask how old you are? Dub monks suits younger guys a bit better than older blokes IMHO.

    Sorry, I must seem like the biggest douche. :facepalm: Then I think it all depends on your style and personality; I can't imagine my father - a conservative lawyer which dresses accordingly - in a pair of suede double monks for instance.

    I loved it even more after seeing those pictures, but I like my shoes a bit rounded.

    That's my tumblr, so thanks for spreading the word!

    And yes, they are on the Hiro last. I'm usually more fond of a more chiseled shape, but I really like the Hiro.

    (by the way, how on earth do I change my sig to include my tumblr url?)

    No offence taken Chris :)

    Well, I'll buy the monks. €150 is so inexpensive that I can live with not usling them, if that should be the case.

    Thanx for opinions!
