My Gant double monks (pictures forthcoming) arrived today so I obviously have double monk on the brain. Never satisfied, I have continued to spend the better part of my afternoon scouring the internet for all the double monks I can find. The best number today (double monks are hard to come by lately) is the Burris model from Mezlan on sale for under $300. The burgundy shoe comes in a shined calfskin with a rubber/leather sole and while I can see the leather being a turn off for some after looking at it for a while I have come around. I'm thinking this would be a killer shoe for formal occasions (I have a light grey suit that would look pretty money with these badboys).
I don't know too much about Mezlan besides they are usually kind of pricey, often found on sale and that their shoes are "handcrafted" by artisans in Spain. From a little bit of research there seems to be differing opinions on quality, but that's not really anything new when it comes to shoes - everyone's got an opinion. Anyhow, if you were looking to snipe a pair of double monks and don't mind a little floss and gloss these seem like a good play.
