Just finished watching it. Loved how they made the movie more sci-fi instead of a typical comic movie.

While we're on the topic of Asian hair, sometimes I feel extremely envious of those white male models with golden brown locks. Although I'm blessed to have a head of full hair, I feel that those hair styles wouldn't really sit well with my Asian hair.

I've been told I wear the Japanese actor-do very well, but it's not my cup of tea. I've been sporting a look similar to the Doctor during Matt Smith's tenure. I'm quite enjoying it, but a little change wouldn't hurt.

Would anybody like to chime in? Apologies for the Vulcan selfie, it's all I could find.

You need someone adept at point cutting to take out weight where necessary to minimise the bulkiness and 'fro-ness and allow you to shape your hair better. Point cutting is something a hairdresser is taught, and a few do well.

There's a guy named Andrew Zumbo who's now an editorial stylist - see if he still cuts hair, he used to cut for American Crew and knows how to cut hair properly. Failing that, there's a place called Barbiere in NYC that is good at this; I went there and it was sick. You could maybe become a millionaire and go there regularly and commute as necessary in your G6.

Unfortunately most barbers don't deal well with your hair type and most hairdressers want to give you some shithouse fashion cut. At the end of the day, be happy you got that much hair on your head.

 

Seriously, Joseph Aidan Hair. Seriously. One of the few very good, very competant, very reliable hairdressers in Melbourne.

Look better than I could after 10 hours sleep in one night. Those new Macclesfields are very nice (and far too tempting).

Just had another cut at Rockit Barbers (Melbourne Member barber of choice). Consistently good cut, though some do a better job than others (and I always have to restyle my hair to be less "rockabilly" when I leave). Chap cutting today just talked a bit too much and am now running late...but the haircut was overdue and I look and feel much better now.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, pretty new here!

Dark green suede chukkas. Perhaps something like this. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Oh yar I got a haircut there on Monday--good result (though I prefer Coopers to Sol). The English guy cut my hair and he's a Tottenham supporter so we had an amiable convo about Gareth Bale. Apparently he's valued at 85 million pounds! If he left that would be an EPL transfer record, more even than the money Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United for. Good as he is, that's like 3-4 excellent players they could bring in to replace him...

David Daniel Levy won't sell Bale even if he got 100 million, apparently.

 

I just need Wenger to sign someone already.

Well you know Wenger--it's like he's spending his own money. A bigger tight arse I have never seen biggrin.gif

He should partner with Suit Shop instead.

Firstly, it depends on what kind of brown (dark brown, orangey-brown, mid brown, tan etc.)

Forget grey, navy and all those fancy colours. Generally I find a slightly lighter shade of brown shoe goes well with dark brown pants. In fact, brown trousers are one of the few colours tan shoes look good with IMO.

Of course you can do black shoes with a brown suit as someone suggested but would look a bit funny wearing black shoes and brown chinos.

Good point mate. Do you think it's also sober enough for a wedding tie?
post #33509 of 53820

I wouldn't pick that one for a wedding really... I guess it depends on the dress code, but it looks like grey wool (rather than the traditional silver), and pattern isn't really formal either (glen plaid, shepherd's check or houndstooth would be better, or even plain).

 

Would be perfectly fine if it's a casual affair, though.

Given its mine I guess I'll be looking for another tie then (still picking this baby up though)
