 Sadly, yes. Looks like a few people at Pitti are doing it, even though it makes their jackets look silly.
I was walking past my local dealer at lunch-time today and noticed that they've got a steel-cased Universal Geneve Tri-Compax with moonphase in the window display.   AUD$4950, which translates to US$3821 or thereabouts, if anyone's interested.       (Sorry about the orientation of the pics - SF doesn't seem to like uploading pictures that are taller than they are wide.)
 He's had some mediocre films, but give the man a break - anyone who's made Carlito's Way, Scarface, The Untouchables and Casualties of War deserves some credit!
 "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"     It definitely depends on your boss. I'd be happy to do this sort of thing - and to be plain-spoken and honest - with my immediate superior as he is very easy-going, he's very honest and straight-forward with us, and he encourages honesty and open-ness in return. However, if he was a different person, then I'd be very, very cautious about it.  
 If you buy a pair of shoes as an investment and then rent them out but the rental return is less than the interest you pay on your credit card bill, can you negatively gear your shoes?
  I said near, not under!  Precisely. Just as with shoes, it's much better to simply leave the garment in its pristine, unworn state instead of actually wearing it, as wearing it will result in wear and tear and the garments and shoes will become creased and worn. It will then be more difficult to get as many "likes" in WAYWRN photos.
 I have a built-in wardrobe near my desk, so I brought in a hanger and I use that. Before we moved to our current office, though, I had a coat/hat rack near my desk that I used. Failing that, look around for a spare chair and put your jacket over that.
 Sorry to hear that, JK. Those Rain-last cognac cordovan boots are very, very tempting, though...
 I have a pair of the C&J for RL Marlow wingtips, and a pair of the Carmina shell cordovan plain-toe bluchers on the Detroit last. I take my normal size in both - a UK9/US10 in the Detroit last, and a US10 in the Marlow wingtips.
^ That AC/DC pic is actually what I imagine FXH looking like, particularly after he's had a few drinks at an SF get-together.   This is what FXH needs to look like if he wants to be mistaken for a retired Guardsman:
