One Style Worldwide... The Lowndes Double Monk Shoe

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.
