Carmina for Epaulet | Salinger Shell Cordovan Double Monk

March 5, 2012

As most menswear enthusiasts, I’m an admirer of Horween Shell Cordovan and also a lover of the double monk strap, so Carmina for Epaulet marrying the two together in holy monk matrimony is truly a sight for sore eyes. And while you will have to “pony up” in price for the shell, these shoes are more than leather and stitching one buckles onto his feet but grandeur you can physically wear; majesty for the feet.

From Epaulet, “This particular shoe is crafted in beautiful “saddle” Horween Shell Cordovan. This vibrant color is an excellent match to navy, grey, and brown trousers. It’s incredible with denim as well. Saddle is a bit darker and paler than Whiskey, a bit lighter and less red than Ravello. This beautiful shade is quite rare in the world of footwear, and we’re absolutely smitten with it. The Salinger sits on the Inca last – which is an excellent balance of a sleek shape with ample toe room and comfort. Its details include: silvertone buckles, stitched captoe, signature purple leather liner, elastic top buckle attachment (allowing you to slip into them easily), and a sturdy goodyear-welted double leather sole.”

For a further inspection, head over to Epaulet.

    Does someone technical know how I can block myself from being able to visit Jeremiah’s blog? My bank account and emotional well-being thank you.

    A beautiful shoe but if (and when) I have to choose, I think I would go with Sid Mashburn’s double monk strap as I prefer the double outsole.

    Nevertheless, a double monk in shell cordovan is pretty enticing.

    Oh well, I will add these to this wish list.
