I see nothing wrong with sole guards. Any resoling that is not from the original manufacturer will most of the time feel different. I rather just replace the sole guards then to resole the shoes. I think it's better that way. I had shoes done by Mina's on Wall Street. He uses a Vibram sole guards similar to the look of Topys and not the wedge shaped threads of other Vibram sole guards shown on this forum before. For anyone who uses B. Nelson, I rather use Mina's...

For the average home chef, learning how to sharpen a knife is more important then getting a high end knife. I rather have people buy say a Dexter Russell or a Forshner then a Shun any day of the week. These inexpensive knives are the knives most restaurants use and work great. I really can't imagine the average home chef maintaining a japanese knife with it's super hard alloy. I think most people need to know that super hard metal knives need to be resharpen. Where as...

I picked up a suit using Zegna's Trofeo cloth. From my understanding it is hard wearing. I wanted to pick a cloth from an English firm but I just couldn't fine the right design. What and how does other feel about the Trofeo cloth. It felt very silky hand and fantastic bounce back from the crupple test.
I will be starting a new job soon that requires me to wake up around 5:30-6am and be in the office by 7, 7:30am. What foods and combinations of foods would you recommend that would give me a boost of energy with minimal fuss in the morning but I am ok with fuss if it is worth the trouble. Also, for lunch. I want high energy foods again. I don't want to have that lull in the afternoon from eating the wrong stuff. I am looking for real food, not energy bars,...
What would be the average pay for production support position for cash equities working in NYC?
Hi, Does any have resources they can point me to to learn more about the FIX protocol? I went to the FIX protocol website numerous times but it is terribly laid out. Is there a book I can purchase? Maybe someone here has a cheatsheet?
