    in a monkstrap?

    I'm considering my options in anticipation of my meeting with Mr. Gaziano.

    I think that is a great looking shoe. It's a little too formal for, most, of my needs. But, again, nice shoe!

    I'd have to see it first, it' hard to visualize, but I'm leaning towards NO.

    G&G's catalog shows a RTW version, called Carlyle (see p. 7).

    The answer for me is, yes I would buy that shoe and may.

    Now the modifier in a monk strap.....hmmmm. If a single strap like the Oundle, I think yes. However this is the exact shoe I have pictured for my order or as an alternative a sleek full brogue in this leather/color.

    I'm not sure. One of my favorite features of this design is the perforations and shapes surrounding the laces.
    Would I take the medallion, the color and the last in a monkstrap, yes.

    It would look a bit like the RLPL Grant.

    Personally, I find that model to be lacking a bit, in grace. It's a haughty looking shoe, to me. But, every foot is different. Every eye, is different. This may be just the shoe that you're looking for.

    I don't know about full brogue monkstrap shoes, but ones with a medallion could look nice.

    Beautiful shoes, but not in a monkstrap. I detest monkstraps. I don't think they look good no matter who you are.

    Monk strap would scream "trying too hard."
