Monk straps, being more casual than shoes with laces, would normally be an odd match for the relative formality of a double-breasted suit.  The fact that this suit is made of gray flannel, a more rustic choice than a smooth worsted fabric, makes this pairing just doable.


Suit: Brooks Brothers, warehouse sale, $150
Shirt: Luciano Barbera, bought secondhand online, $25
Tie: Robert Talbott, thrifted, $3
Pocket square: Brooks Brothers, thrifted, $3
Shoes: Crockett & Jones for Brooks Brothers, clearance, $180

Total: $361
If I’d paid retail prices: $1800 or more

    I really like your combination of grey flannel and brown monk straps. Especially with brownish accessoires like your tie and pocket square. Well put together!
