I'm stuck in the same dilemma as you! Planning to get the double monks and also eyeing the 50% off Corno Blu but already have a pair of black captoe oxfords T.T
Just get the double monks and then the Corno Blu. Buy something you will really like. do it before your size runs out

Haha I feel you bro. I might consider the Corno Blu if you or some other bro doesn't mind getting the black captoe haha.

This thread needs more pics! These just arrived today, my first pair of monk straps. With Carmina factory installed metal toe cap .

Also ordered a cordovan oxford, still in production so they shipped me this one first! How nice!

Much lower instep. Quite similar to EG 82.

Any pair of AMs you buy will allow you to get 50% off Corno Blus from Yeossal now. If you can't get it to work, just drop Yeossal an email (through their contact link on the website) and he can help you create the order.

I emailed Yeossal earlier in the morning and Jackson was quick to respond. Arranged to head down to their showroom earlier this evening to try for sizes. Scooped up both the AM double monks and Corno Blu Lyra while I was there.

The Corno Blu Lyra is patina-d and not museum calf, choosing my preferred patina was harder than charging the shoes to my credit card!
