post #63436 of 98858
Would you consider the PS to be the normal "sized down two" fit? If so, I'd recommend 32 (assuming you're talking about raws; I've heard that most of the washed jeans fit ~ one size smaller).

Not sure if this helps, but my normal APC size is probably 28. I tried on a pair of PS, and they were a bit snug at first but felt like they'd end up pretty good after stretching. I've tried on 19cm in 28, and while I could stick with that size based on how the waist fit, I thought they were too slim in the legs.

Thanks.

Not talking about raw 19cm's. Looking at pre-washed pair with some stretch in it.

 

A size 32 in those would be one size up from my raw PS size. Sounds about right but I hate taking chances like these.

That said it's probably easier going to one of those places than finding a competences barber

I do this too and get a haircut once a month now.
Any competent stylist/barber can cut your hair to your specifications as long as you know how to communicate it.

One time went to this expensive K-Town barber shop and came out looking the same as pre-haircut and ended up paying almost $40? $50 including tip? It was some absurd amount especially when it didn't even look like I had a haircut. It was pretty much catered to Koreans FWIW. I blame my friends for dragging me along that time.

I go to Persons of Interest Wiliamsburg. My dude gives a great cut, and I get half off icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

If you're ok with a short hair style another option is to cut it yourself using electric clippers.

I was getting tried of how shabby I looked between my monthly haircuts and wanted a way to touch up my hair more frequently. But going to a professional every week seemed like too much bother. So I bought Andes professional clippers and some ceramic blades for $200. I then cut the sides and back using a #1 blade, the top using a #4, and faded the two sections together using several intermediate sized blades. Despite having never done this before, the results looked really good. The next day I got several positive comments from friends saying they really liked my new haircut. Everyone was shocked when I told them I cut it myself and said they would have never guessed that.

You need a really good mirror setup though. I used a medicine cabinet that has 3 mirror sections with hinges on each side. Lets you see nearly every angle while keeping your hands free. I cannot imagine being successful without this.

Even if you're having a professional cut your hair, using clippers on your own to tighten up the sides a bit in between your scheduled haircuts can be beneficial. It's a surprisingly easy skill to master. Just make sure you can see well and go slowly.

most salons offer complimentary touch ups between proper haircuts, though....

edit: not that i've been to "most" but all the nicer ones i've been too have offered the comp fringe treatment
post #63447 of 98858
Do they offer that service or should you ask?

I think the low- mid-tiers don't even mention it.

Day off today and I end up laundering and ironing all my shirts for work. Uniqlo I hate your button downs.


edit:
Yesterday it was too hot in SF so I took my linen cardigan off and tied it around my waist for that drape.
As I walked through the crowded street all I hear is "Look at how that skirt is moving"

My hair is ~ down to my nose at the moment.  I kinda want to cut the sides & back with a razor but leave the top, just for a week or so.

eww don't use a razor. go to a place where black people go and get the dude to fade it up the sides. it's way cheaper than a full salon cut, too, and they always know how to use buzzers better
post #63450 of 98858

Yeah sorry i meant a buzzer.  Yeah maybe.  I dunno if I actually want that haircut longer than a couple days, so I'd probably talk one of my girl friends into doing it for me.
