1888 Monks: Subtly extrovert luxury

Legend has it that monk strap shoes, with their striking buckle closure, are based on the traditional shoes worn by Alpine monks in the 15th century. Whatever their heritage, they are still regarded as a somewhat flamboyant choice for business wear, although single or double monks (with one or two buckles) are long-established favourites in Italian offices. There’s no doubt that monk straps are outstanding partners for classic suits, and the luxury 1888 Collection styles are attractive enough to grace virtually any occasion.

LLOYD Monk Straps from the 1888 Collection feature Goodyear Welted design, a complex traditional technique that is at the heart of shoe craftsmanship. In elegant calfskin, the extrovert monk strap becomes a stylish business shoe that aptly enhances smart business and business casual outfits.

Style tip

The Italians set the best example of choosing monk straps to make fashion statements in business environments. The style is most effective on days when formality is not of the essence; team trousers and jacket in contrasting colours like Camel and Navy with a muted shirt and a belt that matches the shoes, and ecco là – you have a harmonious, stylish overall look.
