My brother was in town from San Antonio for the holiday weekend and we were out driving around Dallas today. He's 25 and just passed the BAR exam and was hired on at a law firm 2 weeks ago. We started talking about the clothes he wears to work. he has his basics covered regarding suits; a couple Of perfectly serviceable Jos A Banks suits that he bought when he was an unpaid intern as a student and recently bought a couple nicer Brooks Brothers suits. He then mentioned that he's still wearing the same pair of dress shoes he had in high school for dances- ya know, ugly corrected grain leather, rubber soles... your basic JC Penny bs probably. I told him he was crazy and we were gonna go get him some AEs. As luck would have it, I checked the address on my phone and we were 2 miles from the Dallas AE store. Twenty minutes later he walked out with a pair of walnut Strands, matching belt, trees and polish. Now he'll look the part when going to court.
I also couldn't help myself and bought a pair of cognac Mctavish. Great day!
