What is for older people is the value concept associated with good shoes and the capacity to work out that the actual cost of a pair of shoes is the annual cost over the life of the shoe and perhaps the though of having an old friend on your feet.

 

I actually like the style of AE over Aldens, because it is slightly less boxy, as for the olive garden I though that was only on The Big Bang Theory, do you mean that it really exists?

Yep it exists...  and people in these parts love it because they give you extra plates so you can buy 1 meal and share it with more than 1 person.  They buy one meal for their 4 kids and make them fill up on the endless breadsticks...  then proceed to not tip the waiter.  Also, the food is disgusting.

Sounds disgusting, although in Australia we do not tip waiters, the assumption is that they are paid a wage to do the job, It's now funny to think that when I was a boy I used to complain about not getting desert because I refused to eat Pumpkin, perhaps I was not so hard done by.

 

As to the shoes, I hope that my comment made good sense

I'm 31 and a financial professional and I never have nor never will buy a pair of Allen Edmonds. Their shoes are stuck in time, and while that might fit well for the older, conservative, cuff link wearing professional, I'll stay away from the boring styles. I have no doubt the quality of their shoes is top-notch but I'd rather wear something Italian and stylish anyday.

They do have certain models that are sleek. I do agree that some of their shoes do look dated
