    I'm 97% certain Jeffrey Wright's character was wearing a Barena blazer on the Westworld pilot

    The trick to getting Gatsby out of your hair is to use a conditioner first.

    You live in NYC right? There's a good amount of Asian hair stylists in the city who specialize in working with Asian hair. The better ones are a bit more expensive though.

    It makes sense that Asian hair stylists know what they're doing, just like Black and Hispanic barbers know what they're doing.

    The thing I've noticed is that Asian guys need to leave their hair longer than most in order to give the impression of texture, since their hair is thick and straight.

    A lot of the magic comes from the style of the haircut and products and pastes like pomade, though.

    If you want to keep the short hair but don't like the drastic change, ease into it. Leave the top a 3 or 4 and keep the back and sides at least 1 guide comb shorter. You can even do a slight fade if you want.

    Keeping the hair up top slightly longer and the back and sides shorter is good if you have thinning hair as well.

    If you don't want to do it yourself, it's a lot easier to find barbers in the city that are more experienced with electric clippers than with scissors.

    You're going to be more limited in December I think because that's when we really start getting cold here. Will you have a car or are you trying to take public transit mostly?

    I like how all this hair style advice is coming after gettoasty has already shaved his head. I just imagine him reading along, completely bald.

    I personally think Gatsby works best on shaved skin. You can mold it into little wax sculptures or paint messages on your forehead depending on how much time you have in the morning.

    Hair grows back, unless you're completely bald. Remember ghettoasty, don't make life decisions without consulting us first! :nodding:

    This is a decent list of things to do. You can use @LA Guy 's Boston list on the SF journal for shopping as it covers the places I would recommend. If you have more specific questions about where to get a specific type of food or other recommendations I can answer here or on PM.

    If you can't get your hair right, just keep going to quality stylists until you find one that kills it. Some people are just artists and they make your hair do things you never realized. And once you get it right, you can at least take a photo and ask them what they did so even if you don't go to them again, you'll know. I think most people don't even realize how good their hair can look.

    Yeah, all of those are pretty accessible through public transit. Mr. Sid's looks like it's a slightly longer trek on the D line but still manageable. I can vouch for Drinkwater's, Bodega, and Alan Bilzerian being nice to go to. I've had pretty poor experiences with Riccardi and Concepts.

    4/5 of younger Asian men's hairstyles are derivatives of the crew cut (longer tuft of hair up front and on top and short back and sides). AKA Gohan teenage years.

    Most of those look bad. It's likely an overreaction to the mushroom haircut (likely with the part in the middle) their mothers made them get when they were children.

    I think the comb over (fade the sides for younger/stylish guys) and shorter, slightly faded Caesar hairstyles look good for straight Asian hair.

    Otherwise, invest in a younger Asian hairstylist that can help you add texture to your hair. Bring pictures of your favorite Hong Kong/Korean entertainers. :nodding:

    Just had a Grailed seller totally flake on sending me the Veilance coat I bought from him, zero responses to the questions I sent asking where it is. Already filed a PayPal claim over it, but still bummed; really wanted it. So what I'm saying is...someone sell me a Field Jacket IS in a small

    Lots of reports of him being a scammer have made me reluctant try purchasing from him.
