I've been lurking for the last several months and have learned an incredible amount and I thank you all for that. It's finally time for me to ask a quesiton or two. From the IBM thread there are these pictures: IBM Guys with Boots More Guys with Boots They're wearing a style of boots that I can't seem to find anything about. They're very similar to a modern cap or plain toe (I think) but they extend up the ankle. I'd love to find something like this or even some information about acceptable footwear from the era. Thank you agian for all the information you're providing on this board, it's an incredible resource for those of us raised (far) outside the world of coat and tie but through circumstance or desire hope to dress properly as life requires.
