Today, our products and their names have become icons, personalities even. They don’t just have relevance, they have become reference points of value and quality – recognisable from Crockett & Jones. It is humbling to see a style become a talking point on a name by name basis.
'One Style Worldwide', brings us to 'The Lowndes'. You only have to spend but a few moments walking the aisles of Pitti Uomo, held twice a year in the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, to know the double buckle was not the predicted seasonal fad. A double monk has become a classic 'crossover style' for those in the know and can be thought of as a ‘modern day’ Derby, of sorts. Monk shoes are also exceptionally comfortable due to a whole vamp (and tongue) and the absence of laces... but the fitting must be exact.
