Same here only replace tax consultant with engineer.
Oddly enough, the footwear that has gotten the most comments here has been when I wore some Alden chukkas.
There was a big discussion on whether they're shoes or boots. One guy was insisting they were "hybrid shoes".
This is the guy who has been wearing boat shoes with white Thorlo socks every day for the past few years.
TBH, I have no idea when I'm going to wear the pythons.
In moments like this, do you just let them talk and act like you are no more knowledgable than them, or do you educate them?
