The tonal colouring on the heel and toe areas looks lovely, the double stitching looks great and the antique metal buckles look awesome (a feature that made them stand out for me rather than a standard stainless steel buckle).

    A quick snap. David Bailey, I am not, so lots of reflections.

    Tell me you didn't put new shoes on the table?!

    Handsome footwear, friend. How much were they?

    They look great Jay. The shine is fantastic without looking patent and the colour variation and vintage looking buckles really set them apart from other double-monks I've seen.

    I think I'll have to add them to my wishlist.

    Infuriatingly, one of the buckles broke the first time I tried to wear them. And, of course, they don't have any more of my size in stock, so now I have no monk straps. I shall buy the Herring Attlees from the Monk Strap thread I think, but they don't seem to be available until later this month.

    To cheer myself up, and before it sells out in my size, I bought this for my SS wardrobe:

    Took the plunge and bought these - Loake Cannon. Most I've ever spent on one item of clothing and strangely, there isn't any guilt. . . . yet.

    Free Loake shoe trees as well.

    Damn, that sucks.

    The Loakes are lovely too. Where did you order them from Will? The shoe tree is a bonus!

    It's Holland Esquire. I think the detailing on their tailoring is incredible for the price. They have the English quirkiness of Paul Smith (done better in my opinion for half the price).
