    hi,

    I am looking for a double monk strap.
    First target is edward green westminister.
    However, it seems missing something.
    What do you guys think?
    Any other recommendation?

    I saw this on net and seem quite good looking.
    Do you know what it is??

    What do you think of the Allen Edmonds Neumora double monk? A few sales ago, I bought a pair for $190, and I love them.

    Mercanti Fiorentini around $150 @ DSW. They look great and quality is pretty good.

    An acquaintance who owns a shop here in town was complaining the other day how much pain he was in breaking in a new pair.

    He's not sartorially impaired so I wonder what gives?

    Thanks for you guys idea.
    I am researching on them.
    I start to figure out why i feel EG westmister is wierd.
    The problem may be on its 888 last, which ia a bit square toe.
    Do you agree?

    I guess you feel like something is missing because you can't see the tongue of the shoe on the EGW.

    Sid Mashburn Dub Monk's in the chocolate brown suede. They are $600 so not cheap but they are awesome.

    John Lobb Chapel is awesome.

    I made an ebay offer last week to ascot_shoes, which was rejected. He apparently sold the shoes later for his asking price, $50 less than the price at Neiman-Marcus. What is wrong with ebay bidders??

    I got bored with the John Lobb Chapel (maybe because I feel I’m too old for the shoe)…

    …I think the John Lobb William is one of the best double-monks though my favorite is the John Lobb Wallace (I could easily and nicely survive with just these two pair of shoes)…
