The Monk Strap

Tuesday 15th Dec 2015

We’ve chatted quite a bit about Oxfordsloafersderbys and brogues over the years.

But fashion’s now telling us that it’s time to talk about the Monk Strap.

This classic shoe, originally designed many centuries ago (for monks – go figure) forgoes laces for a leather strap and side buckle (or two).

But as the story goes with all great mens classics, it’s now been appropriated for the ladies.

Wear these where once you’d have worn your favourite lace-ups for a new take on tailored dressing.
