Jungle Boogie: Having your company purchased is just like prison. Come September 1st, find the biggest guy from the new management team and immediately beat the crap out of him in front of everyone. Then casually put your jacket back on, adjust your tie and smile at everyone before walking away while whistling.
A blucher wingtip on the 5 last makes me , but the elimination of the MTO fee waiver and recent price increase makes me because I suspect I will really want this shoe in burgundy shell, but do not want to pay $800 for AE shell.
I have three black cap toes, but I also wear black shoes a couple times a month. One pair for rainy/snowy trips to the courthouse, a pair on the Forest last and another pair on the Rain last because I wanted both.
I now see you are in Denmark and not the U.S., so perhaps you are right. I will say, though, that it's worth not buying too much in the way of shoes and work clothes until you start work and see how others dress on a regular basis.
They would be fine, but one piece of advice: hold off on buying another black captoe until after you start your job. New lawyers always think a law firm is a black captoe only environment, until they arrive and realize that is not the case.
