Rated 3 out of 5 by LTCSult Not sure about the leather finish
Great fit in my "B" width, very comfortable and elegant.
Brown Leather appeared distressed upon arrival. Be wary of using kiwi polish on these. Not sure if that ruins the finish but the already distressed looking leather looked even worse after polishing. I'm staying with cream based polished from now on and living with the less than ideal appearance.
Would like to get a black pair but a bit wary.

These classic monks are very handsome and well-crafted shoes by C&J - very similar to the Malvern. Amazing quality for the money during a big sale. They fit true to size.

Well crafted shoe,and finished. It is best to use a creme polish on the soft calfskin outer. The fit is on a narrow last, and I find it very supportive. The buckle is a naked brass that allows for easy polishing. I've had them for 2 years now, and wear them year-round and often. They have become my go-to shoe, especially when I know my day will be long and much of the time will be on my feet. Another winner in the footwear dept.

Great classic shoe. Made in England which is hard to find these days. Go great with grey cuffed pants. Have the cuff hem fall right at the shoe line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DCLawyer68 Classic shoe beautfully made
These monks are among the nicest out there, although the full price is a bit stiff. They are classicly "English" with a slim cut, and are well made if not quite "top of the line". If you need to buckle them to the third hole (i.e. have smaller feet requiring them to fit very tightly) the strap appears to go a little bit far down the shoe.
