Thanks - that's Oxblood looking as bright as it ever will.
I see, I am planing to get a double monk, and was leaning towards bordeaux. Wasn't sure if it looked too bright though. Might have to go cordovan, or museum plum for that one
Thanks. What about length? I imagine that K looks more "feminine" if it's narrower at the toe box, but with similar width around the rest of the foot and as long as U? Am I wrong?
Well I don't think a narrower pic looks feminine, but that's subjective - you can form your own opinion on that score from the pic.
What I have in mind since it's the narrowest last I've seen in person is Carmina's Simpson last, which is narrower at the toe box than the U last and is often refered to as "feminine" around the board by some members. Maybe the word "feminine" is the wrong way to describe it. Thanks for your input.
The DM is fantastic and in oxblood to die for.
I only have a couple of holes in my rota and DM is one of them , the other being loafer which I don't do.
That has just about pushed me over the edge RogeP, I see no downside to them at all, I see only good
Riot in F .
Don, Simpson is narrow overall. K is standard width, but with a narrow toe box. This makes it look less delicate, if you will, than Simpson, but also makes the chiseled toe box more dramatic.
Thanks. I might purchase one pair in K-last to try. Thanks for the explanation.
Thanks Cleav - Double monks will never dominate my rotation, but I'll always have one or two pairs. Maybe three. Jubei - Bordeaux isn't terribly bright, it just looks that way next to the deep red of Oxblood. It's a lovely shade in its own right. Red Cognac, now that's bright.
@RogerP Ooh, they're v noice too. I was going to ask, but noticed I waffled on too much so stopped, what did you pair your DMs up with? I have c & j Monkton in suede so quite casual...
@Cleav - I wear them with suits all the time.
Nuff said RogP I'm done, I surrender. DMs elevated to top of list. Watch this space.
More importantly, that's a great fit you got going on there
An absolutely fantastic sartorial ensemble sir. Your DM's look great.
Agreed. @Rogerp's fit looks great. I always appreciate seeing shoes in a full fit context. Well done.
