    I just spent a boatload on the RL private sale (including the Cordovan Marlow Wingtips) so selling these recently acquired ShoeMart seconds Brown Suede PTBs with flex sole. Got them a couple of weeks ago and only worn two times. Throwing in the wooden shoe trees too. Listing is in my signature.

    Oh no, dude. My current job requires everyone to wear non slip AKA slip resistant shoes, even us in management, because it's a manufacturing plant. Right now, I have some square toe awful looking shoes. I don't wear suits at the moment. The dress code is biz casual, but even that is pushing the limit. When I work odd hours when most of the management aren't in, I just show up in a v neck t shirt and chinos. :slayer: I leave before any of the management even gets in as well, I'm like a ghost.

    I will start at the new company in about a month and they don't require anyone to wear a particular style of shoes. Because if you require your employees to do this, you have to buy the shoes for them. This is why I'm looking ahead. And yes, suits at this company. :)

    That is not a bad idea. How can I learn more about AE seconds? From your post, I was also thinking of taking advantage when Nordstrom has their big sales.

    The real question is, can you expense them. Us silly engineers, always dreaming about expense accounts.

    Looking' good zippy. I was debating on whether or not to get the Jcrew wingtip as its a pretty unique makeup. At the end I decided against it because D width is just too wide for me

    ye I got those JCrew Boots too, but I'm gonna have to return them. They're really nice though.
