EG. Oh yes.

I must first state that double monks are among my least favorite shoe designs, but nonetheless, taken as a whole, these are unquestionably handsome shoes. I think the addition of a grained hide a big plus for this design! 👍

Amazing?

Depends upon your feeling, but my roots in classicism make these a winner in my eyes. Rainy day Rothschild brogues from G&G in chestnut hatch-grain -

Those are awesome or whatever word means more than awesome.
And I have little doubt that they could be ours for only a paltry four-figured check! :rolleyes:


Edit: I think these may be a store group MTO, but their stock model is $1,155 Ex-VAT! :eek:

Well, the one good thing about biz-casual attire is that I might just be able to retire on the money I save not buying things like these shoes.

I absolutely love everything north of that chunky rubber outsole. Their own Wensum outsole would have been a more harmonious implementation of an all-weather synthetic option.

A Ridgeway sole, I think?

Definitely changes the aesthetic of the shoe into something more robust.
