Brooks Brothers had marketed superb Edward Green shoes under the "Brooks English" and Peal & Co. names from the 1950’s onward to the 1970 when they replaced Green with Crockett and Jones production. In more recent years Alfred Sargent has become the primary vendor, with C&J still producing the higher priced line, like these. This present shoe is extremely well made, one might say, of the best ready-made quality, and certainly among the very best made British shoes, and by a fine maker, although I cannot say who. Compare the last picture showin the skived soles and nail pattern of the heels with a John Lobb ready-made before their change to the current horse-shoe inset heel. Not only are both Goodyear welted into a channelled and “skived” sole, in all other details are these two monks the same, leaving little doubt that that the Peal production is made in the same workshop as Lobb’s ready-mades. The one difference is the price; these are now selling for $598+tax, while Lobb’s are over 1100 Euro plus VAT (MvS).
Condition: New and unused in original carton. 
Size: 9D US.......8E UK.............European 42D, for the mid-width foot.
Monk Strap Shoes are very much in the English taste, an aristocrat’s shoe from the old school, but have penetrated the consciousness of Continentals and North Americans alike over the years. I myself have long been a great fan of the Monk Strap and have a pair for myself in more or less every configuration, including calfskins, cordovan and the not-to-be-neglected Suede Monk. Most Monks are plain fronted, affording an elegant, steam-lined look suitable for all but the most formal dress, and punctuated with the insouciance of a discreet buckle, they proclaim the independence of the gentleman from conservative convention while observing the proven dictates of tradition.
