Some nice Meccariello's, now 40% off at Yeossal. Suede loafers on the soft-square last and Balmoral's on the Chisel 2, a very nice deco toe.

I would enthusiastically agree with you perspective on the John Lobb Chapels, but the chisel on the toes strikes me as disturbingly abrupt. Smooth out those toes and count me onboard! ;)

I wonder if some of that might be the perspective and the shine? :icon_scratch:

Think it might be exaggerating the effect.


Edit: Ah! I'm correct for a change: just happened upon another photo of the Chapels, and with a different perspective and lighting, the chisel-toe appears significantly less severe.

Now you have gone and done it. An unrequited lust for a pair of those memorably handsome Chapels rages within me...and SWMBO stands firm mouthing "Not on my watch!" :( LOL.

While generally not overly fond of double monks, the John Lobb Chapel has always been an exception.
It is my favourite design of double monk.

FWIW Meermin had a similar design for a while, but now it's only sporadically available, in an MTO group.

I've wondered how the affliction of that suffering country may affect these businesses? Very sad, and especially so given their rise to prominence is comparatively recent. :(
