Double monks have been a staple for us since the very beginning... we opened our first shop with little more than a size run of these, and they've been tough to keep in stock ever since. Ours are benchmade in small quantities at a tiny, family run factory in the Marche region of Italy with a Goodyear welt and a closed-channel leather sole. They look as great on an 85-year-old as they do on a 17-year-old, dressed up or dressed down. Top buckle optional.
“On the surface, the answer is super simple – it means they are resoleable… Resoling your shoes is essentially the same as replacing the tires on your car. When you wear your tires down, you don't get a new car... you install new tires, get them balanced & re-aligned, and you're good to go for a few more years. Then you repeat the process.”
