I want some Monkstraps. Found these which I believe are really C&J. And new. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=5366604872 I really would rather have a silver buckle - and a little more style in the shape of the toe. But these should be as well made as about any. Maybe buying from Bennies for $150 / $100 has caused me to lose perspective. Anyway, was this a buy?
