Nice shoes but the triple buckles are OTT for my liking...

How many do you leave undone? Always the middle, never the first?!

I would, however, disagree with this statement. You can't get bespoke shoes for even close to that amount.

How many new threads will be made for the exact same pair of Bontoni monks?

These always remind me of the broad from Total Recall with three tatties.

How many ways can you scream "pretentious"?

Begin the extended inappropriate metaphor threakthon?

Monk shoes are a bit like tits.

Natural tits are like single monks. Lovely, and differentiated in loveliness by their shape and details.

Good fake tits are like double monks. They have a bit extra that draws attention and makes them special.

Triple monks are like bad fake tits. Clearly unnatural and trying a tad too hard to attract attention. (And are they goodyear welted?)
