    Suede Full Brogue, Wing-Tip Mok Strap
    Euro 420

    This charming and unusual Full Brogue Wing-Tip Monk Strap from Grenson for the US market, is dated April 1990. The new non-slip, protective “Topy” sole added over the Goodyear welted leather sole is a perfect complement to the combination non-slip heel. Suede is difficult to photograph and here again the pictures of this supremely elegant shoe are inadequate. The actual colour is the just the right dusty, warm, medium-brown. The quality of the suede, again, difficult to see in the photos, is Grenson’s well-known superior velour-like, soft-to-the-touch top-quality, full-grain calfskin suede.
    About the model: The Suede Brogue Monk is seldom seen apart from custom made or special make-up shoes. neverthless is one of the perhaps dozen most basic gentleman’s shoes and has a prominent place in every collection. This is an ideal shoe to wear when surveying your country estate in your baggy tweeds or knickerbockers, but equally suitable for daytime wear in town since, traditionally, black is not worn before 18:00 hours. Thus, the Brown Suede is perfectly suitable, indeed quite sophisticated, with your gray pin or chalk-striped suit or other business wear. Of course also perfect with a blue blazer and flannel “bags”, not to mention any casual dress; kakis, tweeds, checks, corduroys or any earth-tones suitings. I am personally a great fan of suede and I find, plain or brogued, suede at once dressy and relaxed, a leather very much in the English taste and one that absolutely distinguishes the wearer. Moreover, this is the kind of shoe that, in this highest of quality calfskin suede, requires no more than a quick brushing when dry to be clean and fit to wear again. I find my Suede shoes improve with age and weathering; they become more handsome with a few years and miles on them and are simple to maintain. An elegant, comfortable and finely made shoe and a Euro 650+ value.
