According to my friends, the physician's uniform is khaki or tan chinos, a blue ran Lauren button-down, and a red tie under a lab coat.

The procedures I do during the day aren't usually terribly messy, although there is a possibility for an errand squirt of blood to end up on my shirt. So, if I were to be wearing scrubs all day, I would usually pair them with a pair of sneakers/running shoes. It may look a little silly and be somewhat pointless to wear nicer dress shoes with the scrubs, and then cover them when necessary.

It really wouldn't be the end of the world to continue wearing what I normally wear, and in that case I may do the booties thing. The other docs in my group and to wear scrubs most days, even the ones who only see patients in clinic. I've never been A huge proponent of wearing scrubs except when in the operating room. I find it more professional to dress in business/business casual clothing, maybe out of respect for the patients.

Haha. I never wear a tie, and I like to have a healthy mix of styles, but today I did wear a pair of PRL khaki chinos and a blue and white gingham PRL button down. And my new CJ Pembrokes (with Dainite soles, to remain on topic).

My apologies if this has been covered, but I missed it. What belt are you gents wearing with your brown HMs? I think the closest I have is a GB Sun River, as it's quite a bit darker than the GB Humboldt.

Neo, good to have you back. I was afraid that the Agents had captured you smile.gif

A quick shot of the squad as I was doing some cleaning last weekend. A couple non-ae items in there, 10 points if you find them, 100 if you name them. Not the best resolution here I know. Pretty happy with my rotation now, only thing I really want is another casual shoe, a walnut dalton, an oxblood monk strap, and some shell....so a weasel I am.

Edit...no idea why there is Snapchat screen on there, o well too late.

While I am very sure that I still want them, I was pretty convinced that I want the Club Monaco Suede Leeds (in what CM calls "Sand").

For reference:





But, now I've been tempted by the sale price on the Nordstrom-exclusive Neumok in Acorn Hilfire.

For reference...






Cost being equal here, the decision must be made on other factors... factors such as fit, functionality, etc.


Without drawing out the question, what do you think would make the most sense as a next purchase knowing that I dig them both and might miss out on one while my slush fund replenishes itself after having purchased the other?
Clearly both, but gun to my head you know I'm picking the AH

I finally threw out my 10 year old Saucony Omnis, and I just wanted to see what else folks are using and in what sizing before just buying the same thing again. hopefully something with a little give in the ball to baby my bunions. TIA


I wear Nike trail runners (I have a stockpile of Dual Fusion TR III's in my closet).  But my brother who is a bigger guy, and runs more swears by New Balance 99x's.  Google them, they have a cult following.  Nike makes some sneakers in wide sizes (the TR III's were one, but I take a D), but NB offers more models in wides.

I got my blue Neumoks today.  I'm glad I was able to scrounge up an 11.5E and for the help I got at the SF store.

As much as I didn't want to buy yet another pair of shoes (this is my 9th pair of AE, most of them in the last year), I'm pretty excited about these...

I'd get the CM Leeds.  They're harder to find on ShoeBank.  Nordstroms has sales all the time, and I feel the Acorns will be around for a while (and when they're not, they'll pop up on the Rack).

 

BTW, to me, the suede Leeds are what AE should have been putting out as bucks instead of the Boone, even if they had to slap a Vibram sole on them.

I'm a runner too (but with a narrow foot).
New Balance has some shoes in wide widths, and I believe that Saucony has at least a couple of the most popular shoes with a wide option.

Though I almost always would rather have leather, soles never really affect my comfort much one way or the other.  The one thing thats piqued my interest is the Dainite Ridgeway sole.  It seems like it would provide a bit more comfort than the the studded Dainite.

 

The ONE sole I think is outright TERRIBLE is what AE put on the Thousand Oaks.  The same, or similar, is on my grey Long Branch's, and its the worst.  Still love the boots enough to endure them.

I wonder if the Rancourt "Carolina Brown" would be a good match.  Rancourt also makes Natural CXL belts, but they're out of stock.  Maybe a barn weasel can talk them into cranking out another batch with all the HM's being sold.

 

AE should have planned ahead and released a simple CXL belt that would pair nicely in style with the HM's, (something along the lines of the Cottonwood comes to mind).  Maybe they'll put something out soon and do a package deal.  Like for Christmas???

For the life of me I can't remember if I asked you this already, but as a fellow runner with a narrow foot, what do you use?  Everyone around me swears by Brooks but they're just so damn wide.  I tried the 993s since they make such a size range and the women's version of the 8B almost worked but with NB I always feel like size X is too short and X+0.5 I'm swimming.  I currently wear Nike Free 3.0s - I feel like they're absolute garbage but they fit without too much of an issue.

Gratuitous football picture. My dad loves his TV...
