    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Classic Fit

    Plymouth Single Monk Strap is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Shoe Classic monk strap with super high quality leather. Leather wears well and shows minimal wrinkles. Shape is slightly elongated with a rounded toe, but not pointy. Easily dress them up or down. Straps could use better stitching, as the ends appear almost unfinished. Super comfortable. I wear 10.5E in the 65 last - same sizing worked well here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and stylish single monks The 201 last is a perfect fit for me so I was very happy when they released the Plymouth. Sleek but roomy in the toe box. An elongated toe but not pointy. Really well balanced aesthetic to the 201 last. A pair of single monk straps is a classic shoe that can be used for a variety of looks. In black these are a very slick look and these shoes get a lot of compliments. Can be worn with a suit, a blazer, or even dressed down with jeans or chinos if you so choose. Smart of AE to offer these in several colors, this is a very handsome, very versatile shoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable right out of the box I purchased the Plymouth in Oak color via website. Wore them around the house for a few days to make sure they were comfortable, and they were. AEs in 10.5 EEE are very consistent and fit me well even over the years-no variation. Had a week long business trip and busted them out for the trip. Wore them all week and they were super-comfortable, felt like I've been weariing them for a year! Received lots of compliments from the fellas in the office at headquarters. Only quibble is the strap has some rough edges where it meets the buckle. I have a pair in black I purchased 20 years ago and the strap is finished stitched the entire length of the strap. Hardly noticable, but one small difference between the two pair. Doesn't affect performamce at all. Overall, very happy (once again) these stylish AEs!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misshapen Straps I've worn Allen Edmonds for the last 25 years and been very pleased, including a previous iteration of the monk straps. However, I received these new shoes and noticed that the straps were bulging up above the shoe, and when I put them on the strap on one shoe was severely bulging and distorted. I took them back to the store who sent them off for refurbishing. I just received the refurbished shoes in the mail, but they still have the same problem. I will have to take them back to the store again. Disappointed but looking forward to getting this resolved since I've been so happy with their shoes in the past.

    How to measure the right width?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    For help getting the perfect fit, we recommend you visit a retail store to get your feet fitted. Also, Each half size increases by approximately one-sixth of an inch and each full size increases by one-third of an inch. The widths of Allen Edmonds shoes range from 4A, the narrowest width, to EEE, the widest width, with a D width considered medium. Technically speaking, each width increases by approximately three-sixteenths of an inch in total girth.

    Fit question

    From the picture and description, this looks exactly like the Warwick. Should I expect it to fit the same?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thanks for your interest in the Plymouth. Each style can fit differently based on the contours of your feet, so it’s difficult to guarantee the same fit. However, both shoes are built on the same Last and we expect a similar feel for both styles.

    Any chance of getting this produced in oxblood or a darker brown? Almost everything made on the 201 last these days seems to be walnut or black.
