    True, but there was one person on the Skoak thread who said he received his Thorpes.

    I have no idea where he is located, or if he even picked them up personally.

    Well congrats!!!! I didn't realize that you finished the pain management fellowship already. So that makes sense why you started jumping in on them so fast. haha.

    I forgot that you went to Leffot for the first pair to work on sizing and then went to try other brands from there.

    Don't worry, there are a few of us who are shoe-aholics or boot-aholics!!!! I'm one of them too!



    Yea it is more money to buy the better shoes, but they are so superior and if you find a good source, like Skoak, you save quite a bit over the US retailers and get amazing service.

    Yea it is crazy to buy $100 OTR shirts in my opinion as well, when you can get MTM for comparable prices as a direct to consumer.
    I haven't tried the bargain bespoke suits since I very rarely wear suits and have just had RTW suits tailored for the few times a year i need them, but I may need to consider this down the line.

    Yea i've don't the same over the past few years and it makes a huge difference. It is quality over quantity that matters in fine menswear, but of course you can have both quality and quantity if you do your research on great makers for the price and proper retailers.

    don't!!!

    it's a long haul and as you may know, not all specialties make great money for all of the expenses for school and time invested. Thank God i didn't go into family or internal medicine. haha

    I am turning 30 next month & I had too much schooling and it's never ending & I had no life for past 10 + years. If it's your passion & you are young go for it but one thing I will tell you is make sure you enjoy it. It's not for every one.

    completely agree! It is a ton of school and i didn't have a life either for that time, and still a bit longer with a surgical subspecialty. haha.

    you need a passion and should start young, because if it isn't for you, you can still try to get somewhere else when you get out of it. I know many who dropped out during the course of med school.



    Hey so did you go straight to med school after college and then do a standard 3 year IM residency and then right to the PM fellowship? That is quite young to be finished and it is nice to see others who get through it right away like me.

    It is not the money that attracts me - more like the time people have to spend on SF (while still earning that money)

    Oh nice. I did college in 2 as well but did it from so many AP credits. Then went to med school.

    Nice that your program did anesthesiology with the PM fellow combined. I've never heard of both combined and only as finishing the residency and separately applying for the PM fellow.

    Haha. What it is is that we make time when we can and go in spurts in here. Or at least I do because I can then have time when I'm just in the OR for long days of surgery and alternate with some days of just office hours that are much more reasonable.

    All this MD talk :) So why aren't there many psychiatrists now? Is it not a glamorous area of medicine anymore?

    I always thought it was a good specialty especially if you like to dress well as you don't have to get too "hands on" with patients.

    So you're a PM specialist? It all makes sense now! ;)

    I have one that I see once a month. I'm sure he's scored multiple GG MTOs worth on my visits alone, based on my insurance statements!

    ;)

    Shoes are great, but let's have some career counseling. What does one sell to make $0.5M/yr? I always knew I was in the wrong line of work as a physicist, but now I am wondering just how wrong. [​IMG]

    Someone asked me this question and I want to be sure about the answer before offering it.

    Do Gaziano & Girling shoes require the use of their lasted shoe trees or can a standard shoe tree be used?

    I am assuming a standard shoe tree will work fine, but want to be sure.
