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

    About five years ago, I saw some guys in Rome wearing shirts with not just two buttons at the collar, but three. (It helped to accommodate the big-ass knots then in style.)

    It made them look like fops.

    These shoes do the same thing.

    Yes well it's a given that if it's expensive and goes on your feet that aportnoy has 3 pairs in every available shade - and in some shades that aren't available.

    He must be buying a new rug instead of all these shoes...[​IMG]

    I attended a Bontoni trunk show a couple weeks ago at Lawrence Covell. They were heavily pushing the Excelsior (it's going to be featured in Esquire magazine apparently), but I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on it, although I did order two pairs of other models.

    That's what these triple monks reminded me of, too.

    Sometimes a good idea can be taken too far ... this is one of those times.

    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?)
