Men’s Fashion Trend: Monk Straps

19 August, 2014


 GQ once said that monk straps are the “… dress shoe of the season” and as every stylish man knows, a good shoe is essential to a man’s wardrobe.

This season, buckle up on a pair of Giovanni Marquez’s newest shoes that feature a double monk strap. These 100% hand made, leather shoes from Giovanni Marquez are made in Italy. Also, they are very comfortable, have a fully cushioned style, and are fully lined.  An investment piece, shoes like theses are good for decade and never go out of style.

If you have never heard of a monk strap shoe, they are usually double strapped with no lace. In addition, these shoes are typically worn with suits, but also work with jeans.

Further, “The term ‘Monk strap’ refers to the buckled strap the replaces shoe laces. Monk straps come with one, two, and even three straps, are available in any color, can be made from a wide variety of different leathers, and can be cap toed as well as wingtipped… Monk strap shoes are perfect for those who seek a more unique type of shoe that will draw attention,” says Tie-A-Tie.

As a style tip, when matching the shoes, make sure that the color of the clasp matches your belt buckle, wrist watch, and cufflinks (if you’re wearing any of the above).

Therefore, what are you waiting for? Browse Giovanni Marquez’s new collection of men’s shoes, including his monk strap shoes here.

Remember, the suit makes the man, but the shoe completes the look of the man in it.

Why did you want to become a fashion designer?

Fashion has always been a part of my life as I was raised by parents who were both in the fashion industry. Being around the industry made me develop a passion for creating and designing high quality garments for both men and women. There is no other field I could put my heart and soul into, as I do in fashion. I began my career in France running very successful lines and decided to take it to the states in order to expand.

Being innovative and creating a product that customers want. I thrive in knowing that my styles are wanted and sought after because of the quality and detail we put into it.

I would like to raise the bar in menswear in terms of design and workmanship. I don’t feel that either need to be sacrificed in order to give customers an accessible product.

Photographer Interview: Gustavo Sardi

28 July, 2014

Gustavo Sardi is a one-of-a-kind artist that expresses himself digitally.g-sardi

He has been the official photographer for FashionMenswear/FSBMens and he has great instincts for fashion photography, recognizing best angles, and eliciting the best expressions/poses. Truly, his mastery of post-production techniques is essential to what he does as he considers himself a very good retoucher/compositer.

As a member of the FashionMenswear/FSBMens family, he is recognized for his professionalism. For instance, his detail orientation is laudable. He attains the ability to focus on the  tiny details as well as the big picture. This is exemplified in each of our photo-shoots whether it’s for our newest pairs of shoes, suits, shirts or any product for our worldwide customer. Essentially, his photos contribute to the success of FashionMenswear/FSBMens today as he showcases our wide selection of men’s clothing and shoes in a creative way.

Q: What is your favorite part about being a photographer, and why?

A: I’m a visual artist, I’m a visual human being, really. I eat through my eyes! Photography provides a medium to create images that are both artistic and documentary. The gratification isn’t as delayed as it would be with, say painting, illustration or graphic design. It also has a component of voyeurism, of peeking into stranger’s lives which is very interesting.

My favorite part happens in post-production, where you take the images that “talk” to you and with considerable effort build upon them until a certain magic happens.

Q: What is your favorite part about working with FSB (

A: I love the fashion industry and the beauty associated with it. Whether it’s the models, clothes, sets or any of the elements that end up on the page or screen, being a part of it is always stimulating to me. FSB is a great company to work with. It’s always abreast of the latest developments in Europe and beyond and has a savvy, exciting customer base that keeps us on the lookout for new clothes and new ways of merchandising. Fashion is always evolving and we’re along for the ride!

Q: How would you define your work ethic in three words?

A: Responsibility, fulfill-ness and gratefulness.

Q: What is your favorite product to shoot and why?

A: My favorite product to photograph is a human being wearing and sporting whatever merchandise is being promoted. Why? Not only human beings (particularly attractive ones) are fascinating to watch, but they provide the photographer with limitless angles & compositions…. try doing that with neckties and belts that never want to stay in the positions you want them in!

Q: What is the best compliment you have ever received about your photography?

A: That the people in them like/love the way they look. It takes many shots and considerable coaching to capture someone in an alluring way.

In a way a photographer in combination with the model is creating a persona that is powerful enough to connect with the viewer instantaneously. This process is creative, insightful and a little esoteric. To be seduced by an image is quite an act.

Who or what inspired you to become a designer?

My parents had the fashion flair of the 1930’s and 1940’s. It was an era that they always used to dress up together.  We had thousands of photographs of them wearing wonderful designs while enjoying life. Knowing our customers on the sales floor, and their wishes and needs led me to have something different than the normal brands that are massed produced.

Was it always something you always knew you would do?

I grew up in Braddock, PA, a section of Pittsburgh that had an outdoor shopping district that had some great fashion stores. Then I discovered Downtown, it open up my young fashion sense to work for Joseph Horne Co. retailers and importers. After receiving the education from Joseph Horne Co on setting up branch stores it was time to open our first store called Our Fathers Sons Boutique 1969. We then moved to South Florida in the Downtown Marina District of Boynton Beach and catered to the worldwide customer.

What is your favorite (shirt, shoe, sport coat or tie) from your new Giovanni Marquez Collection and why? 

My favorite has to be our hip shoe collection, we are in a league with the best shoe brands in the world. Our shoes are made in the same factories as the high end designers like Gucci and Cavalli and the only difference is the the name on our shoes, otherwise the craftsmanship and attention to detail is the same, if not better than some of the world’s best brands as they are hand-made in Italy to ensure the best quality for our customrers.

Who do you think is the ideal Giovanni Marquez man? 

It is the global man with travels from European and South Americas countries. In addition to young men who are beginning their careers. Middle aged men who need to keep themselves styled for business functions (With guidance of their wife). And, retired men who are now enjoying life and traveling for leisure.

You are a global brand — How much does travel influence your designs?

100%, traveling influences all our creativity when shopping the global markets for styles and fabric. I enjoy traveling to places like New York, Las Vegas, and Europe where I get to bring back that style to our customers.

How would you describe your personal fashion style? 

Easy and comfortable + light weight + detailed with color.
