G n'T Style

I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex man (O.W.)

You are here:

The name is Monk, Double Monk


Hello my fellow followers,

this time I want to take a look at something that nowadays is as famous as the Sistine Chapel… the double monk shoes by Al Bazar.

If you want a reference on how big is the subject you can google the words “Double Monk Shoes” and you’ll have over 4’600’000 results (four and a half million results!!!!! For a piece of menswear… I think it’s a quite interesting figure, don’t you think)

In fairness we are looking at some V.I.P. piece of footwear, quite often seen on very famous style websites such as The Sartorialist, GQ, Leon, but most importantly always worn by Mr. Lino Ieluzzi from the Milanese boutique “Al Bazar”.

I invite you to linger to the beautiful design, the perfection of the sawing, the immense quality of the materials and cure for the details (like the double sawing on the actual strap, the half leather heel, which in Italy is called “sparrow tail heel”).

What can I tell you more about these incredible piece of craftsmanship?

I want to salute you with a quote by Oscar Wilde:

Beauty is a form of Genius, is higher, indeed, than Genius, as it needs no explanation. It is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in the dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it.

Let me know what do you think about it

Take Care

    I think the shoes rapturously beautiful. I so want to get a pair of double Monk shoes! They are at the top my my shopping list! What a wonderful post. And don’t you just love Oscar Wilde’s wit? His gave at Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris is covered with lipstick kisses from his male admirers.

      Thank you!
      Indeed these shoes are cool (and very comfortable I have to say)

      I see that you are an Oscar Wilde Fan-boy just as I am

      Keep it up

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot about
    this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I feel that you simply could do with some p.c. to drive the message house a bit,
    however instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.
    I will definitely be back.
