    My first adult shoes were Allen Edmonds

    That was 2001. I was 21 and wore them for my first job at Merrill

    They are my favorite, most versatile pair. I have similar in black, but I tend to wear a color palette that works better with browns.

    And we probably don't need to disclose how many pairs of shoes I have. :blushing:

    I am actually into the brown with black suits look right now too. I feel you on the shoes 😂 although, I always tend to lean towards the same pairs. I have some that are insanely priced, I used to rationalize the cost when I worked in my actual office, now that I’m home 24/7 I look at them like 😤😢🤣💸

    Pre-move across the country, saved just for @MaltedTea. Don't mind the dirty mirror, just look at the suit please. <3

    Forget the mirror...much swooning was had! 😭 And - as a student of this thread's high quality contents - I remember reading about this bathroom's paint discussion lol

    Yeah, it eventually got painted. About just in time to sell and move across the country. Took her about a year to make up her mind. She's ordinarily very decisive, but paint is the exception.

    I know it's not related to suits but the question popped into my head. A lot of what happens on MFP flies right over my simple little brain so I'm sure I missed something but why are you leaving MFP? :(

    @ReenieHJ

    Because they'll be along to remove me. Once I show my face, it's only a matter of time, as I'm on the very naughty people list.

    When I'm removed, typically all vestiges of me go. Even my answer to you will be no more. You'll eventually convince yourself I never was. It's all very 1984, but without the big hair.

    Very naughty list? Unbelievable. :( As in, nope, don't believe it for second.

    Hope it's not true. You seem like a straight up thoughtful kinda guy, even though you're not who I pictured you to be. :)

    I am as square as it gets. Like painfully square. Had one girl ever and no alcohol ever kind of square.

    However, I'm also a miscreant. Reconcile that how you will. Some of us aren't worth the aggravation in moderating, even when we don't break the rules. :laugh:

    Did you visualize me with great boobs AND a beard? Please say yes.

    Yes? :)
    Honestly, I thought either you looked like Imago or more like Cacoether, both of whom are witty and missed. Pick your preference. :)

    It's been fun to visit with you all again, but it's time to meander on down the road. If I suit up, I die, so consider this my parting gift for @Kashmir_314_ - think of me fondly, @kinetixtrainer2 and @Deadman_Diggingup, may you always be the best and worst couple in mfp history. Bye again, @CacoEther, smell ya later.

    A niece and her fiancee died together unexpectedly in a car crash a couple of weeks ago - they were to be married in March. I put on a suit for their memorials, despite it being live streamed - thanks to covid we sent only one person back home. I tried to smile and take a picture, but even that kind of failed. So nobody saw, but it was the right thing to do, I think. Sometimes suits are old fashioned, sometimes they are things just older guys wear. Sometimes you're the old guy wearing a suit that (almost) nobody will see. Whether it's age or respect for others or just looking good, there's a million reasons it might be appropriate, and maybe after all of this is over it'll somehow come into fashion again.

    Wait wut!!! Lieut!? Well I never!...good to see you looking as sharp as ever but so sorry to hear about the circumstances. :disappointed:

    I thought you were leaving by choice. That’s lame. 😕 Hopefully there’s a glitch and you’re stuck here. 😊

    I am leaving by choice, I'm just not in control of some of the factors. ;)

    In fact, I'm already gone. They can't fire me, I quit! :bigsmile:

    I realize that is the mfp way, but I tend to stay gone for months to years, at least so far. But if I run out of titsues I'll have to restock.;)

    Sometimes I think that some of the beloved miscreants should be allowed to stay, by virtue of the mfp popular vote. ❤️

    @jennacole12

    I wonder if women have a different ruleset for colors. For guys, brown shoes with black suit would be faux pas. Black shoes with brown suit might be passable. Might. Depends on the shade of brown.

    I've got a dark brown suit, I only wear dark brown leather or navy suede shoes with it. I don't own a black suit though, charcoal or midnight navy is my closest.

    Black suit is only worn at funerals. I have one and nobody dies.

    I’m a navy suit guy. I’m an investment banker and navy suit is the thing.

    However, the profession is not the same anymore. They are not so strict about dress codes and I work on Wall Street.

    It started to fade after the 2008 financial crisis. I hope suits come back but millennials and zoomers have killed it.

    The coronavirus put suits into the coffin. It’s only worn at weddings and black tie events now. One can still wear a suit to the office but you will be laughed at. Younger employees don’t relate to you if you are in a suit and they make so little they can only afford a white shirt

    This is the reasoning behind Jeff bezos or Elon wearing no suit at all. It’s a facade to hoodwink the public that they are simple people but they are billionaires.

    My only splurge now is a white shirt, nice pants and shoes. I’ll throw a striped jacket from time to time and that’s about it.
