(sorry for the poor quality pics).

Good to see you back MOK. I've missed your posts. Your outfit looks great today.

Who are these "cool kids on the other side of the playground." Don't tell me you've been posting in SW&D...if so, I will have to go over there and kick their *sses.

Looks like you lost a button

[quote=upr_crust;4205431]As per the advice of several of you in this forum (and others more closely linked to my real life), I made a change to my glasses frames (I needed a new prescription anyway - aging does that to a person), and also decided, with the new style of glasses, that the facial hair did not "fit".

I can relate to the changes with the eyesight, weight, and the whole age thing as I am quickly on my way to 50. I mentioned my recent buzz cut that I had to do as I felt like I was starting to have a comb over thing going on and I was very depressed about it for a while. I am having trouble lately finding the right clothes for my age and where I work, which is casual to say the least. Inspired by WAYWTII, I have been donning a tie and SC, and even an occasional suit which freaks my co-workers out. I kind of wish I had to wear a suit every day so my only dilemma might be color matching. Anyway, just wanted to let you know you weren't alone in your need to make some changes.

Perhaps a slightly better picture today, though still not a good pose nor a full shot.

The new frames suit you perfectly.

Looks good UC, both the frames and fresh shave, you look like a new man..

Wow! upr_crust, love the new look! Which frames did you end up going with?
post #35257 of 37077
upr_crust I think this is a GREAT improvement! The fit of the suit, the new "look"...I applaud the cajones it takes for such a big change!

I like the 3-piece and what you're wearing with it, but a stronger tie would make it "pop" a bit.

As someone who had a combover until it became patently absurd (I gave it up at the age of 38 - I am now 55), I can recommend just baring the bald pate and go with it. Also, if you've stubble where the hair is not growing - shave it - there is nothing worse than a little hair (though you alluded to doing the buzz cut - that is also another solution - whatever works for your face and head).

Best of luck - as you can see, there are alternatives to looking good whatever your tonsorial "deficiencies".

Thank you, thank you, and thank you. As it happens, the frames are Giorgio Armani - of all of the tortoiseshell frames at my optician's, these worked the best with my face.

As for my "cojones" - the suit rack still has suits in a variety of fits (loose to tight) - will need to work through them to tweak them for my current shape (which varies - arghhhh). As for the loss of facial hair, it's still sinking in, but with the response so far, it seems that it was the right move.

I love that hat! What and where?

someotherstyle - Very nicely done....however, in the second picture it appears you're missing a sleeve button and your tie is doing something funky...

A look from my weekend. It's been a while since I have posted.
