I can personally attest that his shoelaces were tied.
Hey, a diehard engineer would own 10 of the same shirt so that he'd only have to do laundry twice a month...

... and loafers. Or, as Rich has already pointed out, slippers.

But we really should be nicer to Rich. He has access to sharp instruments.
