Dear All, Thanks to my lurking on this site, I've decided that I simply cannot do without a pair of double monks. There are hundreds of posts and threads here, many with drool-worthy photos of various examples of these shoes, so what I was hoping (and do excuse me, if such a thread already exists) was to get some of the mass of information aggregated here. What would you all say was the "ladder of brands" for double monks (and example prices, if you have them)? So far, I've found them made by Loake, Herring, Lobb, EG, C&J. Presumably, Church's, G&G and Trickers and a host of others would also do them? Am facinated in reading your comments on these various brands' offers in the double monk department and being able to compare them and others side by side, based on the wealth of knowledge and experience here. Am primarily actually interested in a pair in black to begin with but knowing me, would most likely end up with some in brown instead, so don't let any colour limitations stop you posting something. Many thanks - Looking forward to reading your posts. G.
