sid mashburn double monks now in black and suede

the most talked about men’s shoe in the blogosphere, the double monk strap, is now available in black and suede from the internet’s most talked about men’s shop sid mashburn.  both look phenomenal.  my brown double monks have quickly become my favorite pair of kicks for work and weekend (i can’t wait to get them back by the way).  if you’ve been thinking about jumping on the double monks train, now is the time to do it.  get after these.  you won’t regret it.

double monk challenger

in one corner we have run of the mill double monks and in the other corner the challenger from ovadia & sons.  props to paul at dreams of perfection for his post on these ovadia & sons double monks.  i’ve been planning on placing a pre-order for the run of the mill version, but these ovadia & sons are – to quote paul – “the definition of perfect.”  i love both the suede and dark calfskin.  if you don’t know anything about ovadia & sons, go get educated.  you will be seeing a lot of them in the coming years.

run of the mill double monk strap shoes

the men’s style blogosphere blew up last week when lawrence from sartorially inclined dropped his run of the mill double monk strap shoes.  i’ll admit i didn’t get hip to double monk straps until i started following sartorially inclined a year or so ago.  in fact, i emailed lawrence while i was in new york last month and asked where i could find some double monk straps for somewhere in between $250-$400.  he said i probably couldn’t find any on the cheap and to wait until his “dub monks” were on the market next month.  well, they’re officially here and available for pre-order.  i think they look fantastic.  the shoes were made in one of the finest ready-to-wear shoe factories in italy.  they also kept the design simple by using a more rounded last which is not as aggressive as some of the pointier double monks on the market.  if you’re thinking about buying a pair of double monks, this is a great entry point.  review to come when they get delivered.
