Our No. 592 is a classic black double monk, a type of loafer. The name relates to the decorative characteristic feature: two buckles fastened on to the side of the shoe.

The supreme discipline of shoe manufacturing. In an elaborate process, the upper and outsole are sewn together using a thin strip of leather. This makes the shoes extremely stable, durable, dimensionally stable and extremely easy to repair.
Buckle shoe whose basic cut resembles a derby, yet describes a shoe model in its own right. The quarters of this monkstrap are held together by the characteristically opulent buckle.
