Last No. 348


Produced in November 2004. Last 348 is a versatile Main Collection last with a square toe. It is arguably the most important last that Crockett & Jones has developed in recent times. Dating back to 2004, last 348 became the most forward thinking last of a generation of shoemakers, setting Crockett & Jones apart. Housing the largest collection of styles, 348 has become an icon in itself. In 2012, last 348 cemented itself into Crockett & Jones’s legacy as the choice last for James Bond’s SKYFALL followed by SPECTRE three years later.

What does it mean?

Monk Strap


Said to have been developed by an alpine monk in the 15th century, and worn throughout European monasteries, this style was popularised in the 1920s. Unbeknown to many, a Monk strap style hosts similar fitting qualities and construction to a Derby. You could think of a Monk style as a ‘modern day’ Derby, of sorts. With open quarters, and a whole cut vamp and tongue, Monk straps (single and double buckle) are remarkably comfortable on the foot. However, they will not offer the same level of adjustment, due to the absence of laces. The sequence of operations for constructing a Monk is similar to a Derby. Inside and outside Quarters are stitched to a tab point either side of the vamp and the tongue is cut as part of the vamp and is not a separate component.

Single Leather Sole

High quality leather sole with open stitching, stained and waxed to provide protection from the elements. Wheeled, crowed and top ironed for aesthetic pleasure.
