The Secret Weapon Of The Sophisticated Gentleman

“Sharp in mind, body and style.”

That is the style mantra of the number one stylish man, Jidenna.

“It means that I think your look should make it seem like you’re sharp in your mind, so it should have a certain level of sophistication.” He notes in his “Classic Man” manifesto.

Nothing exudes sophistication in a man’s wear more than a Monk Strap. The monk strap is the most advanced dress shoe; the secret weapon privy to only a few stylish men.

The monk strap is a style of shoe with no lacing, closed by a buckle and strap. A versatile dress shoe, it seats pretty well between a derby and an oxford. It can be paired with formal, business casual, and even less formal clothing items like cuffed jeans. Your shoe closet is incomplete without one.
