    Museum colors are distinctive two tone colors and as such do not count toward our self imposed the maximum number of the shoes in the same color.

    What do you guys think of the Carmina dark brown suede dub-monks?

    I'm tempted to add these to my closet as I like the Inca last and have absolutely zero suede at the moment.

    Snuff seems to be the more popular color....would I get much use out of the dark browns in both dress and casual modes?

    The general recommendation for G&G is to go with half a size bigger than in Carmina, so UK10 should work in your case.

    I find dark brown suede to be more formal in the same way that dark brown leather is more formal. That said, I'd be completely comfortable pairing these up with some denim or more casual chinos as well. Your usage is going to be dependent on what you already have, but I've seen a number of looks involving suits and suede DMs that I thought looked amazing.

    I think dark brown is incredibly versatile. In fact, I struggle to conceive of the occasion where suede double monks could be worn, but a dark brown shade would make them too formal.

    Gents:

    I've posted in a couple spots, looking for a pair of these beauties:

    Is MTO the only way to go? Would there be enough interest for a group order?

    Looks like a balmoral on the forest last, black calf / black suede. Correct?

    I wear a UK10 on all G&G lasts as well as EG lasts.

    On carmine and John Lobb I wear UK9.5 on all lasts.

    What size would I be in Enzo Bonafe?

    I believe so, yes. I know Meermin did one and Skoak did one with Carmina, but I can't find them now.
