I would not care what I am wearing if I have such a beautiful company, both looking very sharp!

This is a perfectly unhelpful comment.

Sounds unusually serious from you! :)

 

FWIW, nothing I posted was said with any deliberate "side"; purely my off-the-cuff thoughts, to take or leave as you prefer, in line with all the other occasional comments I post to others in this thread. I wouldn't take it particularly seriously.

Dig the haircut, HF.

 

And I'm pretty happy with the last picture. I really, really, REALLY struggle in figuring out what to do with houndstooth, so I'm glad I stumbled into something like looks decent.

Yeah, your shirt/tie combo really worked with it IMO. I think it's because the red in the tie is more of a chestnutty/maroony/russet type of red, giving it an earthy hue that echoes the jacket's earth tones. The more direct picking-up of the reddish overcheck is more coincidental; the key aspect is keeping an earthy feel to the overall look.

 

Thanks re: the haircut! I'm not convinced yet, but I'm going to give it a while to get used to it. I don't pay much attention to hair - and certainly can't be bothered with anything that takes more than 10 seconds combing after towel-drying - so just kept the same simple style (vaguely combed back all over but not bothering to slick it down) for years & years. Thing is, I started it when I had both more & thicker hair. Over the years it increasingly exaggerated the deteriorating state of both! Ah well, we all age... Anyway, I decided to go for a closer & neater cut all over, to disguise that a bit. Weirdly, it's now similar to the haircut I had as a kid & teen (minus the very clear side-parting I had back then), and going full-circle to that again is strange. I'll give it a couple of weeks and see whether I'm OK with that. A deeply-buried, and very lazy, part of me just wants to cut it super-short all over but i know for certain I'd look terrible with that kind of buzzcut; too rugged for how I dress & my life. Neat, tapered and fairly short is probably the better compromise...

It will grow back. Give it a shot.

Did you ever see the Mr Sam photoshop of me without hair? Not even going to risk looking anything near that. Made me look like a grumpy Telly Savalas... ;)

 

EDIT: found it, here we go

 

No way am I risking a buzzcut after seeing that! lol! :)
