    Double Monks and Shorts?

    Saw it today. Is this a thing? I know you can go sockless with double monks, but shorts? I actually rather liked the look, but it was rather atypical...

    Interesting... were they suede? I think shorts with a suede double or single monk could look fresh. Leather? Not so sure would have to see it in person. I don't think this is a thing...

      It's not a thing. It's wrong.

        If it's a thing, it's a very bad thing, IMO.

            Was it a short suit? Or just shorts?

                    I kinda like the cotton one, but the rest don't make any sense. I could see wearing it in a more casual setting/creative job that requires a suit.

                      I can see why some people might think shorts with monk straps are acceptable. After all, wearing shorts with other loafers (drivers, venetians, boat shoes, pennies, etc) is fairly common.

                      Personally, though, even though the monk strap is technically a loafer and on the casual end of the dress shoe spectrum, they are still too formal to wear with shorts. IMO shorts are purely "sports wear" and thus any shoe that is not a sports shoe, or derived from a sports shoe (sneakers, boat shoes, sandals, drivers, etc), is incongruous.

                        Such a classy look. (Sarcasm intended.)

                          monks would look pretty good with a linen / cotton suit like the JC one. make the look extremely casual and its fine IMO, no tie, no belt, impeccable fit, casual button up shirt. But I'm a risk taker.

                            Agreed, especially a printed short sleeve.

                              But it's not a suit...it's a little boy school uniform from the 1800s. Yeah, on this I'm opinionated...lol.
