Inspecting the merchandise - Petronius Cravatte.
These beautiful ties are the handiwork of a small, family-owned Milanese company that has been producing some of the world’s finest neckwear since 1926.
At Double Monk we have a range of Petronius’ ties in silk, cashmere, wool and linen as well as a selection of knitted silk ties.

What’s old is new again
One of the marvels of quality Goodyear welted shoes is their infinite capacity for refurbishment. With Crockett & Jones you can send your shoes back to their Northampton factory for a full refurbishment. At Double Monk we are proud to facilitate this process of renewal and the results never fail to astound.
Edward Green MTOs: His and hers

Rubinacci foulard: Neapolitan grandeur
This luxurious scarf, redolent of european elegance and style, is available in a range of colours and designs. It is great way to bring both warmth and colour to a brisk Melbourne winter.
Rugged good looks: Crockett & Jones Islay
People often say that you have to choose between style and practicality; the Islay boot is proof that no such compromise is necessary. Taken on the two hour ascent to the top of Mt Sturgeon in Victoria’s Grampians (3.5 hrs from Melbourne), these photos show the sturdy boot in its natural environment. Named after an island off the North-East coast of Scotland, the Islay is built to endure rough treatment and even rougher weather (its Dainite rubber soles and storm welting are designed to withstand the tempestuous Hebridean climate). So reliable you could set your watch to it, the Islay is the perfect winter boot.
