I bought some navy Jack Purcells today at DSW, of all places. I also bought some beeswax desert boots. I love them.

I didn't realize DSW had Clark's. I foresee a stop at DSW in my future.

My Ride: my favorite two feet
Random thought related to clothing. DO the men of YMWDLOM tie their tie's in the eldridge or tripoint fashion? I'm normally a full windsor kind of guy or a 4 in 1 but stumbled on this youtube video the other day of the afforementioned tie tying styles and was curious if anyone else used those "knots"

I wish Clarks DB's came in narrow sizes......I love how they look but whenever I try one on it looks like I could put both of my feet into one shoe.

The Clarks were actually from the Clarks store in the mall. They had desert boots at DSW, but they were some kind of Clarks lower line--the soles were not crepe and the leather was sort of cheap.

I actually size down a full size in Clarks: I normally wear a 12 but in the desert boots I wear an 11. They fit just fine that way. My feet are quite narrow--I normally like a B width.

Hmm....I'll have to try them on again. I'm an 11B, so maybe if I go down to a 10 or 9.5, even.

Clark's also makes a boot called the Bushwick that has a gum sole. I tried it on at Nordstrom Rack and it didn't feel inferior, but I also didn't have a Desert Boot to do a side-by-side.

I'm on the fence about the soles. I know the crepe is traditional, but sometimes it ages really poorly.

I've had good luck with the crepe sole. Some people shuffle their feet a bit more when they walk, and I could see how that would wear down a crepe sole really quickly. But for my gait they seem to wear just fine.

And I have to say: after three days at Disneyland wearing my desert boots exclusively, I'm sold on the crepe sole as an all-day walking solution. My feet didn't hurt at all at the end of the day. They weren't the greatest when it rained (traction on tile was not good) but other than that they were stellar.

YMWDLOM people, I need your advice.

I just got a call from one of my brokers asking me to consider working for them. I agreed to have a call tomorrow to discuss this with them a bit further.

Anybody have any advise for this type of situation?

I guess you'll just have to see what the offer is. I haven't worked in corporate America for 15 years, so I can't really offer much advice.

Good luck, though!

They are coming to you, therefore you have some power.

Tell them you like where you're at and the offer would have to be attractive for you to leave - this extends beyond salary. Flexible work arrangements, PTO, etc. are all areas where you can set expectations for a reasonable offer when the time comes, obviously not on the first call.

The worst they can say is no or make an offer without satisfying every area of importance, in which case you're still at the same job.

Obviously your expectations need to remain realistic, but you now that

Dave, I couldn't have said it any better than SLVR JDM said it. Also, would it require you to move? What is the career track of this potential new job vs. your current one?

Thanks - I take it as a huge compliment that they came to me, especially given that the person who they recently lost was 39 with a JD and 17 years of experience. I'm 27 with five years experience.
