I'm growing my hair to nirp length. Don't ask why, it's just something I have to do.

Regardless, what should I be doing to it before it gets that long in relation to cutting/trimming it? It's on just really spilling out of my collar now, but it's very "bottom heavy" and I'm looking to avoid a pseudo-Osmond-do if possible.

I like that threads on .GS have such longevity. I'm still growing, and was most recently compared to one of the BBC musketeers. The good looking one, whichever that is.

OP here, it has been two years since I last had a shear, but twice this week I've been inspired to do so again.

First it was a dream in which I had short hair and enjoyed it, and because you should do everything your imagination tells you to my mind was already made up. But just now I started watching Prometheus and remembered that David was the reason for another haircut soon after I first saw the film. That guy's so cool looking.

I'll be handing in my Long Hair Club membership card and club issue Browning 9mm later this week.

Godspeed, lad. I think everybody in this thread has probably cut a bit by now. The point is to try new things and see if they look good (or shit). Hope your crop serves you as well as it did in your imagination.

If I'm growing my hair out, do I still need to get it cut, so it doesn't just become a mess? Currently all my hair is the same length, I'm not sure if I need to get it tidied up or if that'll just make the growing process take longer.

If you leave it too long without a trim you'll look like a mentalist. Tell your hairdresser "I'm growing it out, I just want a light trim" at least eight times, or they'll fuck it up. Use conditioner.

5152 Emergency Trainers
Slight emergency

I have this thing, this Thursday. It possibly involves a bit of running but more than likely will not.

I had contemplated buying a proper pair of trainers that are comfortable, grip well and are designed for a small amount of running. But my current trainers seemed to work well enough. That was until I went out earlier when it was a bit drizzly and they seemed to slip a little over a metal grate on the pavement.

So now I have to find a pair of trainers that accomplish the prior mentioned characteristics AND in either Sports Direct or Decathalon as amazon estimate that they won't be able to deliver trainers before Thursday. Not to mention I'm not about to spend more than £30 on trainers, never have never will.

So what do you lads recommend?

Brand is irrelevant. £30 is about what you would expect to pay for an off brand equivalent of a £70 pair of Nikes or Adidas.

Speak to the person in the shop about what you need them for and he'll show the most expensive ones they have, then get a budget pair in the same style and function.

I don't suppose there's a way to find out what red trainers Kilian Martin is wearing in Altered Route is there? I think they're nice. Another five people asked in the Youtube comments. The suggestions were as follows

>DC match WC model red
>Red Supras

but nothing looks just like them. I think the DC ones have the best resemblance but I wonder if he deliberately removed the logos because of sponsorship with another company or something?

This is probably the right place, right?

So I was about to go on Amazon to buy the cheapest backpack I could find as it turns out all my flatmates use theirs to carry the shopping back meanwhile I use a bag for life that cuts into my fingers on the journey back making my arms sore when I return with enough tinned food to feed several impoverish African villages or Vanessa Feltz .

Then I had a horrid reminder into my school days where your backpack determined your worth and if you chose poorly you'd tell all the other kids that you're a spastic joey.

So what's a good backpack?

4060 Suit recommendations
I am getting a suit tailored soon. Give me recommendations for materials, colours and all sort of other poofish details. I know that due to my build single breasted always works best.

I am getting it mostly for social type events as I've not had to wear one for work for over six years.

I don't want to look like a corporate type as I did that before and I also don't want to look too eastend gangster either, although that might happen irrespective of the suit. Vaguely Victorian gent or Imperial adventurer without getting into historical re-enactment territory is more the look I want.

5111 shoes too big
Bought some shoes online and they're too big. Already worn them so can't return them. Tried them on in the shop, seemed to fit nicely but they feel too big in the real world. The shoes are the right width but too long. I can feel my feet sliding longitudinally.

Things I've tried: insoles and stuffing some socks into the toe area. Insoles didn't do anything and neither did the socks, maybe I should try more socks? I also read you can try shrinking leather shoes by immersing them in water. I don't think this will work with mine because they're waterproof also I don't want to totally ruin them.

If I take them to a cobbler or a haberdasher is there anything they can do?

5096 Losing hair
Need a bit of advice guys.

I'm 23 (24 in a couple of months) and my hair is becoming noticeably thinner. It has receded a little at the front but nothing major. The crown of my head is the issue, you can't see bare scalp, but it is visible.

From the front and the sides, it looks okay but if you look at the top and the back if I am looking up it is noticeable.

Does anyone here have experience going bald at a young age? It wouldn't bother me so much if I was in my thirties, but I'm not. When is the point you should buzz it? I thought about having it progressively shorter and shorter before shaving it all to make it less of a dramatic transition.

Any tips of making it thicker or at least looking somewhat decent bald? I have pretty good facial structure, but I'm only 5' 8" so I don't have height on my side. If I grow a beard and hit the gym does it just look like I'm overcompensating?

Just shave it, mate. It doesn't hurt and it looks smart. Don't go full slap head, just get a 1 gauge. When it becomes obvious your hair will already be short so it's be harder to notice for other people and easier to transition to a 0 gauge.

I understand the anxiety but your overall appearance really isn't about just stats or individual features, it's about how they come together. Take Statham here, if I remember right he's 5'9" or 5'10", athletic and traditionally masculine looking, so he dresses/grooms to play up to this and his overall look comes together really nicely.

Be Statham, my son.

Or, failing that, pick out people you do like the look of and note why you like them. You find the more you develop your taste, the more comfortable you'll feel in your own skin.

Mate I started losing my hair at 16 it's nothing. Just shave it off and run with it. Going to the gym is always better so you should start doing that anyway plus a thicker neck makes a bald head look better and you less like a sick idiot.

Don't try comb overs or balding men haircuts like faux hawks cause you'll just look like a cunt.


Also according to this being bald might make you appear taller.

Hate to give such a vague answer but it really does depend on the manufacturer. Some right crappy shoes can find their way into high street shops so it's always a gamble unless you look up the make and a few reviews. Some very average black Oxfords I got from Marks are still going strong after two years or so and only cost £50. I've been told Stacy Adams boots/shoes like the ones pictured are very durable and are floating around online for £60 - £90.

If these are too formal for your tastes, I'm sure you can't really go wrong with Clarks, whether it's their desert boots, Chelsea boots or their various permutations.

I really want to post the Limmy 'smart-casual' video again but think it might be overdone. Mainly because I've been posting it too much.

Really odd attitude, this one. There are a few practical reasons why having a watch and a phone is a good idea (it's easier to look at your wrist than to take out and unlock your phone, for example), but putting those aside sometimes it is nice to have single purpose items.

Evening, lads.

For the first time in my life I'm attempting to grow a beard and I need some advice. I've reached the stage where I need to do something with my neck; I don't want to leave it too long and look like a scruffbag but I don't want to shave too high up and look like Jeremy Beadle, i.e. a completely bald neck so that if you yawn/stretch your face/do anything that results in a double chin you look ridiculous.

Should I gradually shave it off bit by bit or go to a barber? stop being a cunt by laughing at his withered hand and help me, please.

Thanks, lads.

Hello matey. You're asking how to shave a decent neckline. Here's a good guide: http://www.beards.org/neck.php

I have a mighty beard and an obsessive personality so I don't trust myself to trim my beard. I'm scared I'll make a mistake and shave it all off in an attempt to correct it, so I just go to a barber. Find a barbershop, one with straight razors and Turkish lads. Most salons will be able to give you a trim but they usually lack the tools or know-how for proper male grooming.
