I have big hair in that it is thick, full, and long-er (down to my chin). I work in an industry/employer where appearance is expected to be conservative so I generally play the part with my work clothing. For my hair, I generally aspire to that classic 80s/Gordon Gekko slicked back look with general success. I am curious if there is any way to achieve a slickback like this without pomade/paste/wax products or anything that is a biotch to wash out. Im sure i could...
Hello, I have never owned a really nice suit until recently when I purchased an Isaia suit (or at least, to my standards, Isaia is nice).  I have two questions:   --- on the shoulders, there is a very blatant white threading running across.  Is this white threading merely for the tailors' purposes, i.e., once tailored, this thread would be removed?  Or is this a stylistic thing with Isaia?  If so, it looks pretty tacky---takes away from an otherwise stellar looking,...

If I dont use anythink, i get David Hasselhoff hair. Leave in conditioner ive used disappears by noon so itsnot a viable option...
I purchased a Richard James Wayfair dress shirt and the neck, tagged at 16.5" feels tighter than any of my other 16" dress shirts (BB, NM, HF, etc). Do they run smaller in the neck normally or is this one shirt off? Just wondering if i should get 17" necks for Richard James. Thanks
Do all belts crack in/around the usual belt hole you use?  Or is this an indication of a cheap belt?  I.e., if I am on a modest budget, is it worthwhile to invest in an expensive belt or should I get the Bass outlet $10 belts and expect to replace them every 6 mos-1 year when they start to crack.
