"Ah! Okay. I'd always wondered if it was just an aesthetic having the shoelaces making an X over the two eyelets and that perhaps some boat shoes didn't actually have laces to tie, that it was more of a slip on sort of routine. Thanks."
"Now that this thread has been resuscitated. I have a question.
I have also been looking into getting a pair of boat shoes as of late and I'm curious if it's possible to wear them with the laces tucked/hidden/however they hell they make…"
"When it comes to this part of the forum I'm not the biggest toad in the water, but I think I have enough sartorial sense to tackle this question.
I reckon the classic brown would go best with dark blue jeans. Black is a bit trickier, but I…"
"I got a pair of Sperry's(albeit cheaper ones from Academy) and they shredded my heels. Now I just wear them when I go fishing with super short,well below ankle socks.
WIll try to find some Timberland as a couple restaurants at our honeymoon…"
"Sperry is the standard when it comes to boat shoes, although I got myself a pair of Rockports and I love em.
With shorts I never, ever wear them with socks, although on casual Fridays, I might put them on with some socks. I wouldn't say its…"

"Political violence isn't new to the US or the modern world. Italy had the years of lead - we're nowhere near that. The UK has a strong Antifa counter culture - they're not losing anything for it. The only reason the US goes…"
"In regard to Confederate memorials, perhaps Robert E. Lee's response to an invitation to mark Gettysburg with monuments is pertinent (emphasis my own):

"General pent up anger getting lashed out in all directions. Which when coming from the left = ZOMFG this is main stream and something we need to worry about. And on this site, I'm a fucking pariah for saying that. I mean seriously, how many…"
"Yeah. None of this is surprising or new to me. There were certain shows you knew everyone was gonna show up and it would be a riot. The skins, nazis, anarchists, punks, skas, leatherdaddies, angels. Then you add in the security which was often times…"
"Always figured you were a punk. I think that time was a little before mine. My teen yrs were more early 90s. Bangers and preppy guys then later grunge was popular and guys who wore bomber jackets and carried skateboards as a fashion item. My friends…"
