Monk shoes: hype or essential ?

During the last two or three seasons I have read an enormous amount of
articles, guides, faqs appealing not just to get one pair of «fashion shoes» but also
explaining how to choose the ones which would match your individual style.
«Monks» or Double monk-strap shoes are usually made by fashion houses what
makes them cost a pretty penny. Luckily this fact doesn’t make them look less
flawless or desirable and gives an idea to make a purchase especially if you feel
that a “trendy thing” might be just hype. More about trendy shirts you can find here: http://www.smokingpopes.net/made-to-measure-shirts/bespoke-shirts/.
If we would look at the history of fashion Monk shoes exist since the 15th
century. We can find out that nowadays it is a classic. Officially considered as less
formal than Oxford shoes but more formal than Derby, Monk shoes are mostly
worn by male. They look great with sport coats and jeans as well as suits and
trousers. Some models have a plain toe and supple calfskin up top. It makes monks
equally formal and casual pushing them to claim for versatility. Whether you have
a diner with your colleagues or take your fiancée out you can always carefully pick
your pair of monks with your dark blue jeans and favorite shirt. Despite of these
plusses which are formed in a wonderful design and attractive universalism, don’t
be mistaken. Certain models of monks are not suitable for official business
meetings and negotiations.
