Have you ever wanted to be king of the #menswear blog-o-sphere?
Imagine waking up to a text message from Nick Wooster asking if you want to get brunch. “Nah braj,” you think to yourself. You and Michael Bastian already have plans to hit up Clinton St. Bakery because the pancakes are bomb and having a third risks you having to wait an additional 30 minutes to get seated. Maybe you can schedule him later to get some pork buns at Ippudo.
You get out of bed and throw on your favorite pair of McNairy camo trousers and your worn out Brooks Brothers ESF OCBD to start the day.
All you need now is the perfect pair of shoes.
Hey! So I got the Cerbero double monk straps in. They have a pretty decent construction for a pair under $200. The leather sole is pretty soft, they're already scuffed up pretty rough. But at least now I have some sort of slide-prevention. They felt pretty wide at the heel, but once I adjusted the bottom strap, it tightened things up a bit. The suede isn't bad looking, and the underside of the strap, and shoe are lined in decent leather. Just thought I'd give you a brief rundown. -Eden
Can you offer any advice on dub monks? I've got myself narrowed down to two choices--either the Allen Edmonds custom-made Moras, or a pair of Sid Mashburn's. There's an ~$150 price point differential; do the quality of the Mashburns really oustrip the AEs to justify the additional cost? For the record, I'm buying this pair as an 'investment' into my permanent wardrobe; my goal is to make them my go-to dress shoe.
