I am a guy. What is appropriate to wear to dinner with a friend who is also a guy? I am worried about either appearing inappropriately casual or formal.

That's why I suggested dark red, like this, and perhaps even bordering on purple. If you've got the personality to pull it off (confident without being cocky), it can be very convincing. I mean, a safe bet would be a grey-blue, or if it's something that requires you to be particularly technically minded a sharper blue. Purple without being glaring can also work, such as Royal Purple.

Green and yellow would make you seem like a bit of a joker, unless it's a very pale yellow or very dark green.

There's nowt wrong with a black tie. I've been successful in my last two job interviews wearing a grey shirt and black tie.

Ignore all the HR shite that is churned out in an effort to justify their non-jobs. It's all about your personality and how you'd fit in their workplace as they already know about your abilities and qualifications. A nice pair of shoes help, mind.

I just went shopping for a new jacket and came back very disillusioned.

It's surprising just how similar high street clothes look, and what's more upsetting is how styles I've liked in the past get fed through the same process every season: slight detail alteration, manufacture a little more cheaply, sell on at standard retail prices.

And what's more, every person you see is wearing just those same styles. Even the patterns and fabrics are near enough identical, there's hardly any variance in weight or fit. It's dawned on me just how weird it is to have such ubiquitous methods of mass production for something I've always considered so personal, subject to taste. What I saw today was more like different flavours of the same product. It makes me feel foolish for looking, and a bit guilty for the things I've bought from big retailers in the past.

It also makes me feel like I can never really develop a taste that's outside of this scope. I don't want to be snobbish, it's not about availability or prices (high streets are actually very expensive), it's just taken me back how utterly saturated a place can become with just a handful of accepted styles. It makes me want to just shop second-hand forever.

Ahoy hoy chaps,
just back from the shops having treated myself to a "proper" razor and was wondering what experiences you fellows have with old school shaving (please keep stories with an "on leaving hospital I was informed that the scar would be there for the rest of my life" denouement to a minimum).

Pic very much related.

Bought a sample pack of blades a couple of weeks ago and have just got 'round to trying the feathers tonight.
What a revelation.
Having very sensitive skin, every blade I had tried prior to the platinum Feathers (Derby extra, Astra platinum and Sharks) had left me with razor burn, nicks and prolonged irritation. Having read extensively about the sharpness of the feathers I feared much the same if not worse lay in store so purposely waited until I had a few days off work before trying them.
I couldn't have been more wrong. Best shave I've ever had. No nicks, no burn and only very minor irritation which completely dissipated twenty minutes or so after I was finished -and that's with a three pass shave. It's going to be feathers here on out for me.
I now feel like a mug for buying 100 derby extras with my razor. No idea what I'm going to do with them.
I'd also like to add that Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street cream is fucking brilliant, particularly if you've got sensitive skin.

On another note, my cheap Edwin Jagger brush just fell apart (the bit containing the badger hair fell out of the handle). I'm sure it will super glue back in but, I feel like this provides me the perfect excuse to upgrade to something more premium. I'm prepared to spend about £50-60 and would ideally like a silver tip badger brush. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I had a similar process regarding feather blades, however 5months down the line I've realized what actual happened was that because of all the hype and fear of slicing my head off with the feather I paid massive amount of attention to every stroke which was the actual cause of the god tier shave. How do I know? Because on the second try I was so cocky about awesome they were I paid less attention and cut myself bad enough to need to take a week of shaving whilst I healed. I now use derbys carefully and its fine.

As for the brush I got a kent BLK4 last year and its holding up as good as ever today.

You've probably got a point. Though I'm sure I paid similar due care and attention when I used the astras as they were the first proper platinum coated blades I had used, and the results where nowhere near as good. I've still got a pack of Merkur Platinums to try, so I'll see how I get on with them. Thanks for the warning.

As for the brush, I've read good things about the BLK4, but people describing it as 'floppy' has kind of put me off. Think I'd maybe prefer something a bit more firm, especially as I'm planning to purchase a couple of soaps.

All you need: a decent vintage Gillette DE razor. (see ebay)
Cella Italian shaving soap (see ebay), comes in a red tub and will last for fucking ages. It's also the best. A Simpsons brush. Pure are more than adequate and not at all floppy. But if you are a bit flush, a best badger one.

Check shirts are everywhere, and most are a bit too bright/gaudy for me.

This makes it difficult to find a nice check shirt with a subtle pattern, especially in a nice burgundy/black/dark colours only. Can anyone recommend me a shop that may carry such an item?

The picture is about the closest I've found, and even that's more like a big plaid.

Hi. On-off, long time, long hair here.

Having long hair rules but quite frankly you will struggle to not look like either a metalhead or a hippie and be pigeon-holed as such.
When you have long hair you really start to appreciate good quality shampoos and conditioner. Don't be afraid to spend a bit of money on good quality products, you are, as a marketing ploy would suggest, worth it.

My hair is currently short but I'm sure I will grow it out again at some point when I'm bored of having short hair again. I find an optimum length for me is around shoulder length, any longer and it starts getting a bit annoying, any shorter and it looks like I'm trying to hard to be fashionable.

Two questions.

What's the best way to maintain stubble? As in, keep it so it feels rough, when I trim down and stroke with the grain it feels incredibly soft. This isn't all too bad but I do like it to feel more textured.

Secondly, what is the best way to remove dry and dead skin from your beard? When I trim it usually comes out in bulk and is quite disgusting.

Alright, well, I'm not really. However, I stumbled across these shirts and I was all "those are some pretty nice shirts, and totally my style!". Then I realised that they were ladies clothes and I, almost as quickly, remembered I was a man.

What I'm asking is, if I buy a large, will I end up looking ridiculous, or will no one be able to tell because it's a plaid shirt and not a cocktail dress?

No one notices the ladies underwear, so I feel pretty confident about some shirts.

Hey lads, I was wondering if you can give some tips on internet clothes shopping. I'm sick to death of the high street now and would like to take the plunge into something with a bit more selection without getting burnt.

The other place does recommend some sites that have been a help but I was wondering if you can recommend stores for the more rounded gentleman who looks good in the more rough-and-ready 20-something style as I've only found things that mostly cater to the 'urban' teen look.

I'm a 36R -the Mrs tried to help once but she had me trying on some skin tight chinos.

Can you tell us more what you mean by the rough-and-ready style? You'll appreciate that, generally, if your style is something that doesn't directly come off the high street then it's a bit harder to cater to, just by the definition that it isn't fast, cheap fashion.

But you're in luck as the internet does accommodate most tastes. If you tell us a bit about what you actually like, it'd be easier to direct you to the right websites.

Yeah, you're going to have to be more specific about what you're looking for, because I have no idea what "the more rough-and-ready 20-something style" is.

My top tip would be to take advantage of returns policies and shop with the intention of returning most of what you buy. Quality and fit are the most important aspects of style, but they're also the hardest to assess online.

Also, get friendly with your local alterations tailor. It's so cheap and easy, but guys get it wrong all the time. Half an inch of sleeve length can make all the difference in a jacket or coat.

Relaxed and practical without veering into dad-core. Maybe a dark blue hoodie and grey jeans with some arty graphics t-shirt. I can't find the fashion template that always gets bandied about so pic related might do (only without the vulgar hole in the jeans).

>Maybe a dark blue hoodie and grey jeans with some arty graphics t-shirt.

You should be able to find these in large sizes in most clothing shops, even the trendier ones. If you're looking for higher quality online outlets for basics, it's worth looking at higher end shops that specialise in one kind of item, i.e. a reliable clothing brand for your jeans, a good outerwear shop for your hoodie, etc. rather than picking everything up from the same place.

Also, don't be insecure about veering into 'dad-core'. If you wear what you're comfortable in and pick up items based on individual quality/practicality, you generally won't look too forced or out of place.

4374 Backpacks...
Can either of you two reccomend a backpack?

Things that I look for in a backpack include,

Plain/not too garish
Comfortable
Lots of storage
Good build quality
Different compartments
Waterproof

If you could tell me tales of backpacks which could help me on this little search that would be great. Ideally with links to an online retailer I can order a winner from.

Ta.

An old thread here with a couple of recommendations. http://britfa.gs/eco/res/1967.html

I'd also add to get yourself to a decathlon if there's one near you, they've got a good selection as long as you don't mind buying stuff made in France.

Have a look for the plain Eastpak bags if you want something understated with reliable build. They have various sizes, I opted for the standard, everyday rucksack which has only a main compartment and a front one and it's simply exactly what it says on the tin.

I suppose it all depends what you want the backpack for.

I use a Gelert Rodisson 30. A nice, solid backpack with enough compartments for casual/semi-strenuous hiking or going around town. Padding in all the right places for a load up to 15kg or thereabouts.

Depends what you want it for. If you don't intend to go camping/hiking etc. then don't waste money on anything designed for such. You can get backpacks for a tenner at Sports Direct that are perfectly comfortable and don't make you look like an anorak neither.

If you do want something massive for camping, Eurohike are great.

Thanks all, I went for the Osprey Quantum 34L. I'll be using it for travel to and from work plus other urban pursuits. I'll give some feedback in due course.

'Sup /gays/, I have 2 questions for you (second plural.)

Optional back story, feel free to skip to the end: I'm what you might consider a man's man. I'm an engineer, my hands are like sand paper, I listen to thrash metal and have given myself a poorly executed tattoo while pissed up in a foreign country.

Being as I am, a bit of a lad, I don't normally bother with such irrelevancies as one might be familiar with on this board. However, I have trouble attracting women, in order to sort this issue the fuck out and get my dick wet I feel I need to probably pander to womens shallow desires.


Therefore I come to you "lads" with two topics:

(1) "Fragrances for men".
I normally smell of a combination of stale piss, cigarettes, coffee and excrement, to be brutally honest I'm pretty ok with that but I heard women like guys to smell as if they've been looked in a hookers parlor for a few days. I would say "wat do" or something but I'm not a complete pork product. Should I, or should I not fork out the monetary equivalent of 10 pints just on the off chance that it will appease women? If yes, have you got any recommendations on what I should blow the aforementioned cash on.

And thusly, (2):
I have to shave. Now fuck knows I hate this, 'tis a burden 'pon my soul and try as I might to avoid the blasted action, there comes a point where I simply have to concede defeat to the hair and have a shave.
So immediately post shave, I am feeling pretty good since I know I can put it off for anywhere between 1 day and a week depending on who or what the fuck I am doing. However, 30 minutes later my skin has become as dry and flakey as a stoned university maths student. I have attempted to counteract this by shaving post-shower and immediately applying post-shave something called "Gilette energizing moisture". Unfortunately, unlike Ronsil it does not do exactly what it says on the fucking tin. My skin is as dry and shite as it was before and I feel positively drained by the entire experience.

I'm in my late 20's and I've gone back to using Lynx. Lynx Chocolate to be precise.

A few months ago I ran out of anti-perspirant, so instead of going to the shops I resorted to seeing what Lynx/Adidas/FCUK gift sets that I've got for Christmas over the years (every year, every young man in Britain, etc.) and hidden in the back of my wardrobe and could make use of. After a bit of trial and error I found that Lynx chocolate was the best of the bunch.

It's now turned into my regular spray as it actually smells nice and I have received compliments when I wear it (it does complement the colognes I use), it's just a case of getting over the stigma it has from 13-year-old-boys and overweight middle-aged Greek men using half a can in one go. I've also found that it keeps my armpits drier and keeps me B.O. free for longer than the likes of Sure and Right Guard.

But Lynx isn't an antiperspirant.

Lynx does do antiperspirants - they're the silver cans as opposed to the black ones.
