For anyone interested, Mr. Porter did an article about J.M. Weston on The Journal a couple weeks back. http://www.mrporter.com/journal/behind-the-brand/jm-weston/225 And an older article when they first started carrying them: http://www.mrporter.com/journal/the-edit/jm-weston/96 Reading these got me to dig up this old thread. I had been planning on either buying some Alden Shell Cordovan Color 8 Handsewn Penny Loafer or Tassel Loafers until I ran across the J.M. Weston...
i just pulled the trigger on a pair of these. i had mixed feelings looking at them online--mostly i felt like i would end up getting some other double monk. but, i tried them on in person at an allen edmonds store and they are much sleeker in person. the online pictures make it look terrible. the squaring of the toebox is very slight. i went from being extremely skeptical to loving them in person. i've tried on sid mashburn's double monks in person as well and the shape is...
nice. i am totally asking for a "hilter youth" cut the next time i go to my barber. i'd love to see the look on his face when i ask for that.jokes aside, it's been growing in popularity for some time now. if you like clothes it would seem, you should probably be combing/pomade-ing your hair. scotty schuman has spoken.
UK Brylcreem is my favorite. I love this stuff. Every time I'm over there I make a point to buy some:http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002S33PHM/ref=nosim/?tag=brylcremecouk-21You should be able to find it at Tesco, it works as good as many expensive salon products I've used.
the toothy thinning razor/scissor "texturizes" your hair towards the ends of the hairs. when your barber does a razor cut, he "texturizes" or thins your hairs out from the roots and upwards. overall the razor cut is superior because your hair gets thinned out more. any real barber that is advertised as a barber should know what you're talking about. plus, you shouldn't be getting your haircut at a salon anyway. you're a man. go to a barber.
try this stuff:http://www.amazon.com/FI-struct-2-65/dp/B000WMHKB8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1328199472&sr=8-2d:fi d:structit's probably the most gravity defying matte look product out there. it's more expensive, but it works like nothing else for stuff like that. also i agree with jabonator that you're going to need a blowdryer.
also, if it was unclear, i use pomade after blowdrying to get the "hold" of the shape i just created with the blowdryer.
Here is my regimen for my tallish combover quiff:wash hair with shampoo[occasionally i use conditioner]run a little brylcreem through haircomb and push back hair with a "slicked back look"blow dry hair in this position, essentially locking in the shape and bodyi currently use suave men's pomade:http://www.amazon.com/Suave-Professionals-Mens-Styling-Pomade/dp/B004TWCTGSit works shockingly well for a three or four dollar hair product. it has a medium shine and it's...
I don't think so. I have a fairly long face, and I do something similar. Maybe not quite as long on the top, but I think that hairstyle looks great on most people. Long on top, short on the sides, guys have been wearing that general hairstyle for ages.
Did you ever get your Eames replica? I am interested to know how you feel about it.
