The difference is that both buckles of a double monk have a practical use.

So do the buttons on a coat. Leaving one undone is not some immutable thing, it was done to flatter an english king who got to fat to close the bottom button on his suits, and just stuck.

Trick question. I only wear suit jackets with one button. Sprezz-win.

The bottom button on coats aren't made to be done up. Both buckles on monks are.

Not doing the bottom button of my jacket is convention. Not doing the back buckle of my monk is affectation.

Do the shoes stay on your feet with only one buckle done? If so, it's just an efficiency and not an affectation, kind of like not lacing boots all the way to the top eyelet.

What is now convention was once affectation.

At one point in time, all buttons on coats were supposed to be buttoned.

I feel like there is some advantage in terms of the necessity for movement, comfort and drape, but whatevzzzz. This probably seems like an indictment against your own decision to half-monk your double-monks, huh?

Oh jesus. Buckle up your fucking shoes and give it a rest.
