yeah same. I enjoy their panel discussions, think I posted one of the CdG ones a while back.

 

This Gucci one is good if you have an hour to kill

 

 

And on the subject of Gucci SS17 reviews...

I just sold a guy a t-shirt that I described as black, even though the tag says dark green which I posted a picture of but never looked at. I'm a mild Deutan (red/green colorblind) and it didn't register with me that the shirt wasn't black for the entire time I owned it. The guy decided to keep it but I'm now wondering what else I'm missing on.

I love that channel. They're kind of slow in between fashion shows, but really good during and after events, when they have those roundtables.

Highsnobiety also has a really good podcast nowadays.

I did it, I finally shaved my head. I am anticipating the ridicule I will get for about a week at work. Another bad haircut finally tipped the scales and I just buzzed my head, DIY the best I could with what I had to work with. I'll just it keep to myself and feel I am in good company, hey @LA Guy. At least IME when talking about Asian hair I feel like it is such a pain in the ass to maintain. Kudos to those brothers who can get it right.

In terms of fashion I always felt like my hair was the one incongruity in my "fits". No matter how I styled it or had it cut, I at least was always focused on the way my hair was at the moment instead of feeling comfortable in my clothes. Now I feel liberated, literally and figuratively.

I put this off for too long, the last time I had a buzz cut was 5+ years ago.

I've always wanted to try that.

+1000000000000 on the struggle life that is Asian male hair. Recently discovered Kevin Murphy products though and it's been like a different world.

Never tried Gatsby, but just started using Kevin Murphy Free Hold. The videos online for it look ridiculous, but you don't have to go super funky salon with it. I use it to add texture, volume, and put a medium hold on my hair. Feel like it's been so much better than the Kiehl's, American Crew, and Bumble & Bumble styling products I've used in the past.

Going to try Super Goo and Night Rider. Those seem to have a stronger hold. Not that I'm unhappy with Free Hold, but that's been so great so far that I figured I'd try other things in their line.

^I might also give Night Rider a try. B&B doesn't do anything for me, and Gatsby does the right job but requires strong shampoo to remove. Mostly I've just been following the SF/Synthese-approved method of not using shampoo...

Suavecito or imperial.

I'm resigned to expensive haircuts.

Not sure why this is always suggested but thank you.

Most of these shops are poorly run and if I am having a hard time communicating with the person it's going to end up with a bad result 9 out of 10 times.

My hair is also thinning. It is time...

Saw the same thing on two listings this week. Item priced at like $400. Seller says, "Offers welcome -- but I won't accept it if it's less than $150!" eh.gif
