    @ MaxMan - Foolproof combination, like it a lot! I would have swapped the blue trousers (jeans?) to a grey wool pair but that is just personal preference. Love the tie too!

      Thanks Matt, they are the JCP chino in Navy. I was going to contrast the pants but changed direction and decided to go Monochrome and make my tie, shirt, and shoes contrast the rest of the fit. I feel like if someone looks at me, they will focus on my top half and the lowest level of the fit. The pants and cardy are demo pieces, my shirt tie and shoes are what i wanted on display.

        Sweater's just a touch too big but the next size down was spandex-y so it'll have to do...

          Fair enough with the tie. At that point in the day, the climate control of the building had gone rogue and was trying to sweat us out of there!

          RE: Shirt size...This is a medium, used to wear small. With my proportions (6'1", 155-160) small sizes are too short on my frame. They rarely stay tucked in. So, I go medium, buy slimmer fits, and get shirts i LOVE tailored when I can...which isn't too often for this broke student.

              My desire for a pair of double monks has been increasing over the past year... it's at a tipping point. Wondering your thought on them? My Strand in 9D fits perfect; any idea on how the Neumora's compare?
              It is on the 333 last. so it is more narrow in the toe box.

                Monochromatic today:



                BR tailored-fit suit, Neiman Marcus shirt, thrifted tie, Macy's tie bar, JCF belt, Casio watch, Allen Edmonds black wingtip oxfords (not shown).

                I've stopped wearing nice watches to court because I'm tired of having to chuck them into bins while going through security at 100mph. So I'm wearing a $14 plastic Casio instead.

                  Ah, people are so picky on the neumoras it seems. Some of it also seems to stem from people angry Allen Edmonds dropped the Mora in favor of the neumora. That however is just a matter of taste and really comes down to whether people want a more european looking last (neumora) or a more american style last (original mora). They are both gorgeous as you can see from my pics (the neumora here is fresh out of the box with a brand new polish while the mora I took a picture of is after wearing and not polishing for a few months tho):

                      LoL I thought you picked up a pair of european monks already from herring tho!

                        Am I the only one having difficulty telling those two apart? The Mora looks a bit wider to my eye and maybe has a bit more burnishing on the toe, but that's about all I pick up on. They're both gorgeous though.

                          I did, but they are red mahogany...wearing them today go figure. IN an outfit I specifically designed around your dark shades comment

                          But I want black monks and despite my lack of love for Brown those are coloured very well, really love monk straps

                          Btw anyone see this?! AE custom coloured Neumoks

                          @Eric: Yeah they look pretty close, I like the Neumora though the toe cap looks longer, rather than the typical short stubby AE cap along with a slightly less rounded toe

                            Acoustic and Shomas are going to be the death of me... Those shoes are gorgeous. I've read some things about the toe box creasing oddly - anyone have that problem?

                            @Acoustic - what color are your neumora's?

                              I have a pair of neumora's and haven't found any odd creasing. If it has any relation they get worn around once every 10-14 days.

                                Both monks are in brown Jeff. There is also some thought that monks are a trend and may look odd in the future...but who knows
