"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.

"Sperry is the standard when it comes to boat shoes, although I got myself a pair of Rockports and I love em.

"I made the change from a dead end job to a career as an electrician six months ago. I love my job! I see different places every day, and there are new things to learn. It's hardly ever boring. The apprenticeship program is nice. I work and live…"
"I think with me she is not grossed with my body. Lol. Even if I dont go shirtless around, I still wear loose fitting, low armhole shirts which certainly shows my torso. She would sometimes ask me if I go to gym regularly and if I take protein shakes."
"You should note that Presidential Appointees serve at the pleasure of the President. Flynn's resignation was requested the moment he accepted the appointment. There were rumblings that Gen'l Flynn was running into the same sort…"
"A tripartite axis opposed to liberal democracies...welcome to Europe circa 1914. From the very brief references, this really sounds more like an Agitprop justification for a Russian dominated political system dominated by a Moscow-based…"
