For a Business Analyst? Nah. You don’t do deals. You’re a BA. When you make partner, buy the sleds

You do you man - If you have the disposable income for it then why not. If you take care of them they’ll last you a long, long time.

Assuming these are the OG bit loafers?

When are they going to bring back the Gucci Ribbon bit loafer (other than the green and red under the bit)???

With the bamboo horse bit

They’re the only choice for horse bit loafers. I’ve resoled a pair 5 times. Probably going on 10 years old now.

Purchased a pair of fake Gucci’s many years ago. Nails coming up through the soles killed my feet. But they still looked better than the creased up pair above

These are the Brixton model which features very soft leather that creases almost immediately. Perhaps you had a knock-off of the Jordaan model that has a traditional harder leather.

consultant keeps making spelling mistakes on every document, including when they just need to copy and paste text directly from email instructions. when they send me work they now say “let me know if you find any spelling errors” - and while i always check work because it’s a team effort, i feel like these careless mistakes could be avoided. english isn’t their first language (nor mine), is it insensitive to ask them to double check their work? or is there any other way to handle this?
