American Crew pomade is not very good for holding your hair in positions it doesn't want to be in. I use it to give a slightly wet look and define the part in my hair, but the general way my hair falls is the same without pomade. That doesn't sound like that's the case for you. Try a heavier product with a stronger hold. Alternatively, stop shampooing and just wash with water and scrub your scalp; the weight of natural oils may keep the poof from returning.
I don't know if this sort of thing is allowed, but I have the +J stretch cashmere cardigan, medium, in brown. Too big, should have gone with small. But before I return, I was wondering if anyone on here wants it. Also, the chunky v neck, small, black. Same deal.
I like the starkness of that white a lot. I think a lot of techy stuff like arcteryx and aether looks good in a cold clinical white, like that one limited edition rolltop rucksack that I can't remember who made. I think it was ripstop or some proprietary material.
