    Hello Dan,

    They are in the safe hands of DHL - should be with you on Monday morning.

    Thanks
    Sammy.

    BTW: We had some enquiries from the Rolex forum about your shoes. A small goodwill discount waiting on your next Vass pair.

    Interesting you call them slip-ons.....are dmonks meant to be slipped on, as it were? I always have the nearer buckle undone, then slip my foot in and fasten the buckle...have I been doing it all wrong?

    Quote:That term is sometimes used as a catch-all for shoes without laces. I can't imagine one would put these on or take them off without undoing one buckle. Beautiful chukkas rikod - I envy your collection.
