Double Monk

Ferragamo is really a footwear dynasty and incredibly masterful when it comes to building a shoe. I always tell people to spend a little more than you would normally want to on a pair of shoes, because it will be worth it in the long run. The last is built to last a lifetime on these double monks, as long as you take care of them, and the rubber sole helps to keep them light and comfortable from the get-go.

“Wear these with jeans, or a suit, and unbuckle the top for a little extra savoir faire. This is the quintessential monk strap in a rich brown that goes with everything – especially those heavyweight fabrics you’re going to be wearing for fall.”

—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
