Ships free with the code JULYFS, which expires 7/31/12. No word on when this sale price expires.
UPDATE: These just showed up over at Rue La La’s “Final” sale for $119.90. No returns though. Lots of sizes.
Instinct is to say no. A monk strap combined with the wingtip stitching seems at first like way too much. But here’s the case for this $200 off shoe being worth consideration if you’re in the market:
- No perforations or pinked edges – Just the wingtip stitching. That makes a difference.
- Made in Italy / Genuine Bologna construction – High end for CH, and that’s not easy to find at $170.
- The Buckle – Has some nice curves/variations in thickness. There’s some dynamics to that shape.
- No vaguely obscene looking openings – Unlike some other monks. Thanks raptorrapture (still like em’…)
Thoughts? Or is it all still just a little too busy? It’s a single monk, so most of the time the buckle will be covered by your pants. Not sure if that makes a difference or not…
