american crew is good if you have straight hair but you'll need something with a bit more hold if you have curly or wavy hair.

Sounds like you're looking for something lighter, actually. If you're slicking it back and not liking how flat it feels, ditch the pomade for a while and try something with some volume. Use a texturizing cream while it's still damp, and blow dry while running your hands through it. Finish with hair spray or a lighter-hold mousse or paste. I recommend Bumble&Bumble for everything, but I'm sure there are other products to try.

Sadly, no. I do none of those things (0). Well, aside from B&B.

 

RFT: I have a ton of stuff to sell and I can't be fucked to take pictures and measure shit and post listings only to have everything ignored. Ugh.

Please forgive this reddit MFA-noob level question: Anyone have a source for cheap (read uniqlo prices) chinos and wool flat front pants that come hemmed? They don't need to be anything cool. I just need something for daily business-casual office wear. Uniqlo's chinos are great but at my size they only come with a 34" inseam which is about 4" too long. I am also too lazy to bring them to the tailor.

uniqlo hems chinos/jeans for free (wool pants are $5)

Baxter clay pomade is the best hair product I've ever used and I've tried a shitload. Pretty expensive (20€?), but lasts forever. Your hair might be a bit long for it, koy, but worth a shot. Anyone else with short-on-sides-long-on-top should try it for sure though.

Agreed on Baxter clay pomade. Once your hair gets longer the soft cream pomade and matte pomade both work really well. So does a beanie/hat though.

Another option is American Crew fiber, which I've used in the past. Never blow-dried or anything though

Yeah that's unfortunately in-store only. We have a couple uniqlo stores nearby here but none easily accessible by public transit so that rules that out for me as an option.

You can buy online and then bring it to the store for them to alter for free, but it is a bit of a hassle, but then again, I've done it like almost 10 times now and it all adds up.  Plus, they do a good job and match all the threads, etc and if they mess up, it's on them, you can get a new one.
