Monk FactsCrockett & Jones’ Poole is a classic round-toed penny loafer exclusive to Double Monk. The black suede penny loafer is almost criminal in its versatility: worn without socks, it is the perfect summer shoe; yet its generous shape makes it equally comfortable worn with woolen socks when winter comes around. The characteristic slit strap design originated in the 1930s as a stylistic twist on the standard loafer; many people would store a penny in the slit incase they needed to make an emergency phone call. The Poole is crafted on Crockett & Jones’ 314 last, which is their classic rounded loafer design. Because it is black it goes with everything, yet the matte finish of the suede gives a sense of relaxation and luxury that makes it perfect for a variety of contexts. Founded in Northampton in 1879, Crockett & Jones a fifth generation family-owned company. Representing the finest in materials and workmanship, Crockett & Jones’ Goodyear welted shoes are 100% made in England.
