I present to you the dress shoe of the season! While driving mocs and loafers are still cool, if you haven’t double buckled, it’s about time to wake up and smell the monk strap. While the monk strap is a style that’s literally been around for ages (the Middle Ages, to be exact), it’s back in black (and brown). No longer just a formal dress shoe, these days monk straps pair well with jeans too. The Magnanni Wellingtamp Petit Grey [$395] is the Cadillac of monk straps. Magnanni crafts its shoes from the finest leathers in Spain, France and Italy.  Magnanni is a third generation, family-owned company that has been producing fine men’s footwear for nearly 60 years in the small city of Almansa, Spain where the production of handcrafted footwear is a way of life. Magnanni crafts shoes for the man who understands that the way he dresses is an expression of his personal style and taste.
