1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Depends if you're on the trading floor and/or do client facing work.

    I do client relations type stuff (glorified damage control for the fuck uppery of others) but mostly via email and phone so wearing a suit isn't a requirement.

    Any time I do face the client I suit up, of course. Some of my old ones used to take frequent visits out to us - this particular client is more of a homebody and not keen on travel at all so unless I go out there we don't have face to face interactions.

    There's plenty of back office work in finance where dressing up isn't a requirement, too.

    Yup, I'm excited to wear them even with the odd SC.

    Side note, would they be more formal if the suede was dark brown?

    perhaps, but rtcs shoes would not be CBD in any color, suede or calf. the last and style is just too casual imho.

    the whole shooting match. its just a casually styled shoe. that is not bad in any way, its just not a dressy shoe, that all.

    Haha, I was just curious! It makes sense though. Traditionally, english dub monks are country shoes, so it makes sense that an english maker has them on a more casual last/build.

    Vs. These which are more 'dressy' right?

    (Sorry for the mini derail)

    those still strike me as casual, but yeah, the last and look here leans more towards dressy/formal than yours.

    If those were dark brown you could wear them CBD.
