I don't know what zipper it is, but it's not the teardrop riri. Also the carpe zips all the way to the base. Juns do not

You could have chosen much much worse... like say law or architecture.

Yeah, though most of the hearsay was from people trying to convince him to go to law school... and I feel like none of them were actually lawyers themselves. No lawyer I know (myself included) would actually try and convince someone to go to law school.

Unemployment for newly trained architects, is like 80%.

I actually know a couple guys who are trained architects and then went back to school to become lawyers.

Getting the flame suit on but... there's really nothing special about my Carpe's besides the design. Construction quality is only decent, not on the level of the best dress shoes IMO. My heel cracked after a dozen wears, which the cobbler fixed with no issue. My Julius 7 boots construction blows away Carpe, although it is an apples to oranges comparison in many ways. I'm happy I got mine for ~$150, I'd be pretty upset spending over $1k on them. I like them enough I'd buy the Juns but there's no way I'd spend the kind of cash people want for Carpes in near new condition.

I don't think that there is any need for the flame suit.  I think that most people realize that when they buy C.Diems, they are paying primarily for the design.  There are any number of boots that are more durable and have better construction.  A lot of the brands in that category are the same.

Pretty much any of the CM brands.  Also, good "workboot" brands.  Boots like Carpe Diem don't ever pretend to be "quality" based, in the sense of good workmanship.

What's the unemployment rate for recent law grads?

Around here the education is setup a little different, so you need to be employed by a law firm, to get in sort if like an apprenticeship, so I would assume very low, at least here.

Outside of Legoland, but the entire country as a whole, do you know what the rate is?

This is just my opinion and it's from my (like anyone's) very limited perspective of the universe, but I feel I must share it---

Architecture is the most soul-satisfying and gratifying profession in the world.

Architects are the most passionate people I've met.   They see life and work as one, and see their work everywhere.  You can't go anywhere with them, without them getting interested about the buildings, the atmosphere, the location, the view, the locale, etc etc etc.

In this day where "multi-disciplinary" is a buzzword for everything from law to forum management, architecture is the only profession--if done properly, at top-level, at a top-notch, name-brand, global firm--that really does require interdisciplinary talent.   If you are a good architect--and a lot of them are fantastic ones--you need to be a mathematician, you need to understand mechanics, structure and materials, computer graphic design, etc etc.

Then of course, there is the aesthetic element of it.   I am not going to even try to begin to explain what this means---we can be here till doomsday talking about this.   And to keep their inspiration growing and their creative juices flowing, they try to include everything---music, agriculture, nature, natural esthetics, taste, smell, as part of their everyday existence. 

It's the only profession where historical tradition is part of everyday work.  Good architects understand the historical basis of everything we consider "beautiful" or "necessary". 

Last but  certainly not least--a random fashion thought.  Architecture is the only job I know where they go out of there way to dress creatively, and where the way "a person dresses" is part of that person's personal identity or brand.  That's what SW&D is, in essence, all about.  Architects live and breathe it everyday.

My wife is a trained architect, her father and her family are also architects.  Incidentally, they are also titled, landed gentry, so they don't really view life and work as a means to generate money.  They are so intensely passionate about their work--it's a joy to watch them live and work---the two really are inseparable.  My father-in-law's speciality, now that he's retired, is to "judge competitions to award contracts".  That's where technical skills takes a back seat to really understanding how something will fit into historical traditions, innovation, and artistic considerations.  

Also---architecture requires God-given talent.  Not everyone--in fact, very few--can do it.  If born with talent, you need to work at it too.   "Talent is a sacred flame, you need to guard it.  Indeed, you must guard it."

I work with architects/furniture designers every day, so I'm very familiar with them, on the style thing I don't agree most architects dress really boring in all black, most AD's dress better.

I don't live in the US, but in Denmark we have 500 unemployed lawyer according to the union (don't know what the percentile is), "normal architects" have an unemployment rate of 7.8 and landscape architects are 80%.
