    I don't know what's more amusing. That:
    1. I even remembered that.
    2. Typing it into the iPad, the Wikipedia suggestion came up as "Imaginary Engineering (industrial engineering)"
    3. Finding out on said page that my alma mater, where I learned that cute phrase, is ranked #1 in the field.

    Good thing we have these advanced degrees to help us afford our crazy shoe obsession. Perhaps engineering colleges should consider changing their mascots to "the Filthy Barnweasels!"

    Interesting that so many of you are engineers. Most of them that I've known do not wear quality shoes and pretty much wear t-shirt and jeans.

    Ha, well to be fair, most people in my work fields do not wear quality shoes either.

    But if they DID wear shoes, think of how MANY shoes they could wear. Five pairs at a time.

    If there is anything an IE values above all else, it's quality and efficiency.

    Ain't that the truth. The world has changed, right? You see people in suits and sneakers these days.

    Had I not asked my lawyer friend what he recommended for quality and comfort, I might still be the same way I was for most of my adult life.

    Hey longwing blucher lovers, my NOS Hanovers arrived and are more than I hoped for. Fortunately, the give me more room than the MacNeil. As promised, I did a review of this vintage shoe and company at the Vintage thread (click here) and compared it to another vintage shoes from that same era. Come on by if such things are of interest. If not, carry on.

    Well she's lucky. She didn't have to use one of her nine lives.

    This definitely occurred to me as I was cleaning them up. There really is something to be said for buying quality. To top it off, I don't think I mentioned this, but I got them off the Bank for $147!! Plus, these shoes get compliments wherever I go, whether it's grocery shopping, a barbecue, or out at night.

    Frankly, I'm amazed by the truth in this statement. I work at an airport, and you would not believe the number of otherwise well-dressed businessmen I see wearing HORRIBLE shoes.

    That being said, I DID see a gentleman wearing a pair of blue Neumoks last week.

    Its certainly possible if you have a good relationship with the SM/SA's at your AE Outlet, and should be true across the board. Of course there always a balloon knot or two that make things difficult. They shouldn't since you can just order the shoes to your house and then dump them at their store if you don't like what you get, so what are they really accomplishing.

    As for what store gets what, its likely random. I suppose they could have some regional bias (like more boots to northern locations, more loafers and weaves to the southern locations), but I don't have any hard facts. Also some of the locations that have been open longer, will likely have some older discontinued models, while the newly open locations will have more recent stuff.

    I'm going to call this "way back Wednesday". These are Bridgetons from about 1995 - this is what they called Bourbon back then.

    I have 3 of this style - black, burgundy, and bourbon. I still like this shoe.
