Not gonna lie: I have a soft spot for monk straps. Sure, they’re not as formal as oxfords, and you don’t see them worn as often. But if you get yourself a sweet pair, you can pull them off with just about any outfit.
Beckett Simonon just sent me their Hoyt monk strap dress shoes. Get PRAKTICALA’s take by reading the Beckett Simonon Hoyt monk strap review below! And don’t forget to use our exclusive promo cod PRAKTICALA20 for 20% off your order!
It’s been a while since we’ve posted a watch review. In fact, we have quite a few backlogged timepieces to catch up, so we’ll try to blast out a bunch of flash reviews in the coming months. Check out our Eterna Airforce Eterna-matic watch review below!
Beckett Simonon is really starting to collect a formidable gallery of made-to-order dress shoes. Their latest (at least for me) is the wholecut Valencia oxford. Check out our Beckett Simonon Valencia wholecut oxfords review below!

You might have seen these relatively low-priced Seiko automatics floating around lately. They’re part of Seiko’s Recraft collection and seem like a bargain for an automatic watch. PRAKTICALA has its Seiko Recraft Automatic Watch SNKN45 review below – take a look at what we think!
Beckett Simonon has grown quickly over the last few months. There were only a couple of shoes on their website when I first bought the Caine oxfords for my wedding a few years ago. Since then, they’ve added several new products, including loafers, brogues, sneakers, bomber jackets, and backpacks.
PRAKTICALA did extensive field testing for their latest pair of shoes. Read the Beckett Simonon Durant brogues dress shoe review below!

Swiss automatic watches are great, but perhaps you aren’t ready to drop a few grand on an accessory. (Or even a few hundred.) No problem – several excellent Japanese automatic watches are available in the $100 range, including the Seiko 5 Sports, my favorite watch and daily beater.
Still, even 100 bucks is still a lot for the budget-conscious layperson. The good news is you can spend even less and still get a decent, respectable watch. While it might not be automatic, the upside is it’ll have exclusive benefits you can only get with a battery.
