This is not a punched cap, but a wing tip and in my opinion is the most elegent RTW shoe available



G&G's Windsor is nice too with a V cap...and you can add a medallion if you wish or a straight cap

I'm quoting myself blindly, but . . .

. . . I believe that I'm wearing punch cap monks (Crockett & Jones, not Lobb, but you get the idea) in the photos in posting to "What Are You Wearing Today?" with a grey suit.

Forgive me if the posting quoted is incorrect, as I cannot see my own photos from my office PC (security issues with the Web).

They will be very versatile, and they are beautiful. Disregarding my personal preference for brown shoes, I'd love to have a pair. Unlike some of our English cousins, I do not think them a form of blucher/derby, and I do think them suitable with a lounge suit in business settings. They are not the most formal shoe one could wear with such attire, but they're probably about a 6.5 or 7 on a 10-point formality scale of what we Americans call dress shoes.

Monks are probably one of the most versatile shoes you can have in your rotation. Especially if you get a antique chestnut or oxblood color. They look great with trousers and an odd jacket, perfect with a pair of chinos, jeans, or with a flannel suit or some other casual suit such as a worsted glen plaid or windowpane.

I would not wear them with a solid colored business suit in gray, navy or brown. I would not wear them in the evening to a formal dress (dark suit or black tie.) affair.
