Steel Toe Work Boots – Wellingtons?
I have to wear steel toe shoes at work and my employer will pay up to $100 if I go through Grainger. Good looking steel toe’s are ridiculously hard to find, they usually look like rhinoceros hooves. Good options seem to be Red Wings, Chippewa, and Thorogood. Grainger sells Thorogood, and I got the 804-4374’s last year. These are holding up really well, super comfortable, made in USA, Vibram soles, Goodyear storm welt, the crazy-horse pullup leather is phenomenal. The white soles took some time to get used to and have darkened up a bit with dirt, etc.My company offered the same deal again through Grainger and I want another pair to alternate. I was thinking of changing it up a bit with some pull-ons/wellingtons. I am looking at 804-4372 and 804-3310, which both have the same leather, the 804-4372’s have the same white Vibram sole and contrast stitching, but the 804-3310’s have a black Vibram sole.What are your thoughts on leather wellingtons/pull-on boots, and these specifically? (Knowing I can’t find steel toe Alden Indy’s)TL;DR need steel-toe boots, what are your thoughts on leather wellingtons/pull-ons?

MFA Buy/Sell/Trade – October 23, 2017
Hi everyone, welcome to the first MFA Buy/Sell/Trade thread. This thread is being conducted on a trial basis as it is one of the most common requests we receive. This thread will be posted on Mondays and last for one week. It will be sorted by new, and stickied above Simple Questions.If you would like this thread to continue, please carefully read the following rules and adhere to them:All listings MUST be posted as Grailed/Ebay linksAll transactions are to be conducted through these sites – if you go offsite, you do so at your own risk-All disputes should be handled through Grailed/Ebay/Paypal. Do not message the mod team about any disputes. We are taking a firm stance of non-involvement. Do not make posts about disputes. Do not make comments about disputes. All disputes should be handled through Grailed/Ebay/Paypal.Repeated violations of these rules by individual users will result in a ban. Repeated violations by multiple users will result in the cessation of the thread.A few tips if you are new to buying and selling on Grailed/Ebay, etc.For Sellers:Always make sure that you are eligible for PayPal seller protection – ship only to verified addresses, require a signature, and update the tracking information on the PayPal website instead of just messaging it to the person.Take good pictures! Bring the item outside so that people can really get a good look at it.Provide measurements. If you need a good guide on how to take them, look here.Consider providing a discount for MFA members!For Buyers:If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Check a user’s feedback on Grailed before you buy.Don’t go offsite. Because I know some of you will anyway, make sure you still use PayPal. Don’t send someone money through PayPal “Friends and Family”, make sure you are “Paying for Goods and Services”. If you get screwed by this, don’t message us. I warned you.If you make an offer, pay it. No one likes flakers.Ask for measurements if there aren’t any. Tag sizes vary wildly.If you want to do a trade:Create a listing for each of your items, set them as the same price, then buy them from one another. This is the safest way to do trades, as you are still fully covered by PayPal protection.STOP. Did you read the rules?That’s about it. Have fun. Be safe. Don’t cause drama.

Uk was her grooming advice at me a personal attack?
I go to appointments with an employment advisor for the past month. This appointment she was normal and half bothered at first. She reminded me about an interview I had coming up that she put me forward for (they get job opportunities) and she then turned upbeat and her voice also was upbeat (cheerful, which made a change) she said ‘you got interview clothes?’ I replied ‘yes, Iv got all that’ (nicely) and she said ‘oh have you got al that’ (upbeat as I said) I said yes then she went on to say ‘well don’t forget, shirt, pants and shoes, make sure you get a shave, make sure you cut your nails..make sure you do your hair up all nice and that…..(then she paused as she was facing her computer) ..’and make sure you put some aftershave on aswell, for the girls make sure it’s mens’ then burst out laughing (I smiled along with it) im a young guy and she’s in her early 30s. Just really worried she thinks I’m an ugly loser….or something like that. Need a 2nd opinion…I did badly need a shave which maybe why :/Edit: this was last week she chose me for another interview this week and hasn’t said anything about appearance at all this time. She even filled out the application form for me and emailed me to tell me. But she could of done that thinking I’m too thick to do that myself.
