    What do you think of this shoe from Charles Tyrwhitt? I understand that many of their shoes are made by Loake.

    Nice shoe- I like chisel toed shoes but this combo isn't the most harmonious.

    There is a Loake 1880 monkstrap which is avaiable at Herring Shoes: [​IMG] The leather is darker brown, though, looks like.

    The toe box is way to square for my tastes.

    Thanks everyone, the toe was bothering me as well. Still, I may go check them out in person.

    May be a good idea. It's hard to get an exact fix on those toes. They look a touch boxy on top
    but the sole underneath seems oval and I like the oval. The color of them is much nicer than those Loakes posted (No offence to Loakes lovers). You could probably get away with that toe provided not every shoes in ytour wardrobe have that toebox shape. Then again, nicer shoes to be found for the same $$ and a nicer toe.
