GQ Selects: Cole Haan’s Versatile Monk Strap

This is a great example of a well-crafted shoe for a good value, and while it’s a personal preference, some guys may want their first monk to be a single monk. This Cole Haan pair is a caramel brown, which tends to be a bit more European looking, that plays beautifully off grey flannel trousers or even white jeans.

It’s very liberating for guys to feel like they can buy a pair of monk straps and not just save them for special occasions. Break them out of the box and wear them all the time, from work to weekend.”

—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
