Monk Strap

Model

Monk Strap

Rumored to have been developed by an Alpine monk in the 15th century and worn in all European monasteries, this style was popularized in the 1920s. Unbeknown to many, a Monk with a strap features the fit and construction similar to a Derby. With open quarters and a full cut upper and tongue, Monk straps (single and double buckle) are extraordinarily comfortable on the foot. However, they won't offer the same level of adjustment, due to the absence of laces.

Manufacture

McKay

The American Lyman Reed Blake invented this stitching method in 1856 right in the middle of the Industrial Revolution while he was trying to reduce time and cost of processing for a large-scale production. Gordon McKay, who became the official supplier of the US Army during the Civil War, has later perfected it. In summary, McKay processing method provides, by using a special machine, a single stitching with simple or double thread, which simultaneously combines upper, lining, insole and sole. This stitching process, recognizable from inside seam that runs through the insole, provides to the shoe greater flexibility and lightness.

Take care

Full grain leather care begins with removing any dirt using a soft cloth, followed by the application of a wax of the right color to nourish and protect the leather. Then rub vigorously with the polishing glove to shine it.
