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.

    Those look great although they appear a little lighter than I like my whiskey. I prefer a redder whiskey over the yellow. Perhaps it's just the photo? In any case, Love me some whiskey

    Blame the blackberry. Theyre redder/darker than they appear in the photo.

    Thanks for the suggestion, guys. I think I will suck it up and get a couple of pairs with commando and/or danite sole. :) Now another reason to buy more shoes. Admittedly, I wear my cheap dress shoes in harsh condition more than often. Before I had the means to buy Aldens, I wore Kenneth Cole, Banana Republic, etc. These are good enough for the rain. But I guess I'm using the new job as a reason to buy more stuff.

    Riddle me this, wj4, a job that requires you to wear suits AND rubber soled shoes? That be mighty queer to me.

    wj4, pick up some much ridiculed Allen Edmonds seconds on the cheap to wear on really nasty days. I've been pretty happy doing that instead of trashing the few pairs of Edward Greens I own. Since they don't cost that much (relatively speaking), I don't feel bad beating them to hell over the course of the winter. Also, remember Dainite soles are SLIPPERY.

    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.
