1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    just got word that either 64 or 65 pairs of brand new in box Certo monks are coming in.  
    4 styles:
    brown leather monk
    brown suede monk
    black leather monk
    black suede monk

    retail was $425
    i'll be selling them for $139 (sorry made a mistake) each, 2 pairs are 125, three or more are 117.50each, flat $8, ship in the US, charge.  they are not in, but we've agreed on everything.  probably will be in around next monday or tuesday.  i don't know sizing, but i'm guessing 16 pair in each style equalling 64, so there are probably 1 pair per size per style with a few extras, but i believe i'm getting sizing info in a few days.

    just let me know and tell others since this is on the sell board and not the main board

    What would you compare the quality to? Bruno Magli/Ferragamo, or better?

    honestly i don't study shoe construction all that closely but i would compare their fit to a ferragamo or like my testonis. somewhere aharris gave them a pretty good review, back when i got my initial shipment. i think for a 425 pair of shoes, 139 is pretty good, just my opinion

    Certo's are primarily Blake Rapid, but the styling and materials are pretty good. Definitely worth the $139.00.

    see, i knew aharris liked them. good comments. re: that link, i just reuploaded everything to reflect some returns and the new items so that link doesn't work. it's pretty close to this: monks actually pretty darn close, just a lower retail price

    Howdy Lance, could you describe a bit about the shape of the toe? Square or round, etc? The picture kinda blocks the toe area. Thanks.

    going off of memory, it's a rounded toe, not a circular toe but not pointed or squared. i seem to remember a nice rounded toe. i really should have taken pix of the sample they sent but i didn't think it would materialize.

    I bought a pair of the Certo Monkstraps several weeks ago when the original shipment came in.
    I have gotten more compliments on them than I have from any other pair of shoes I own (AE, Alden, Ferragamo, Church's).
    I dont know about the rest of the ones up for sale but the ones I have are made for Certo by Borgioli, it has the same Borgioli sole and says Borgioli inside the shoe.

    I have been very pleased with all of my purchases from Lance, he is an outstanding seller with excellent customer service and great merchandise.

    I am not affiliated with Lance in any way

    Hello discostu004,

    I would be interested in either black or brown leather size 10D US. Would you expect to recieve items in such size?

    sorry, i hadn't checked in a day or two. PM me your request and i'll put it on my pre-order list. so far there are 7 pairs already claimed.

    RE: 8.5 brown, can't say for sure, but feel really sure there will be one, and nobody's reserved brown 8.5 yet

    RE: 10, the black ltrh is claimed already but the other 3 options are open.

    just send PM
    thx
    lance
