Not a tech posting but definitely a gadget of's shoes!

I purchased a pair of LLYR Thomas single monk shoes from Swagger at 15 Ann Siang Road, and rounded off with a plate of Tian Tian chicken rice at the Maxwell food centre next door with the family on 29 Nov 2014 (Sat).

This is a Swagger Exclusive with goodyear welting and dark purple inner lining. The dark brown patina is applied by Atelier LLYR. LLYR is among a select group of boutique Singaporean shoemakers.

The monks come with shoebags that are well made. Given that they are about $520 RRP, this is within expectations. Cedar shoetrees are recommended to absorb moisture and keep the shoes in shape.

LLYR shoes can also be found in Tangs Orchard. However, the Thomas single monks are exclusive to Swagger and I was told by Sherwin that only 3 are made for every size.
