If the cobbler says it, it must be true then ha ha.

Had to laugh when I read this.

He told me that they would all be wearing Brogues which would be of English origin. And lo and behold everybody was wearing black brogues.

He used to wear cap toe oxfords to work. I know different professions favour particular styles of ties eg finance = staid stripes.

So is there still a division in the medical profession in terms of who wears what footwear?

I think that there is a lot of division even amongst certain professions. One particular office may all wear french cuffs, but move to a different floor and they may all wear buttons, or not care at all. I've had customers telling me that in their circle of CEO's, banker's collars were the height of elegance, and I've had other customers tell me that the aforementioned shirts were reserved for plebs. It's all context.

Thanks Journeyman. I'm in the process of expanding beyond suits as, to be honest, I'm a little bored with them. It's actually harder than I thought trying to ensure things remain both cohesive and professional so thanks for the helpful response. The limited options of a size 36 don't help but I find purchases need to be carefully considered nonetheless.

I'd have to say yes, but these are only my personal observations.

 

Anaesthetists - Crocs, Birkenstocks, Nikes (anything that's comfy in theatre and casual).

Surgeons - most wear RMW's (mostly chestnut craftsman), some have Aquila monstrosities, some older ones wear well-polished florsheim brogues. I've only seen one pair of cordovan brogues ever. 

Emergency - sneakers, I saw a pair of sketchers (the ones that supposedly help you lose weight)

Physicians - mostly mixed bag of shoes, no clear pattern

Ophthal's - wear whatever, no clear pattern.

What about podiatrists?

iSurg, what speciality do you work in?? (presuming you're a doctor)

 

Got a lot of family in the field.

I think you'll find that people like to remain anonymous when using forums. :).

If this was a serious question, they are not doctors, and barely allied health.

If that was not a serious question, tongue.gif

Michael,

 

One would hope you're not cynical enough to suggest a job title is synonymous with one's identity.

 

;)

Does anyone know where we can get Salt frames online? I tried google, but sadly there are so many garbage results to do with eyewear...
