    Mikey, you look good. I'd consider undoing the buttons on the collar. I wear shirts like that with the top two buttons undone, looks fine. Don't know if its the angle but the shoes look kinda big....nice shoes, just look HUGE.

    the shirt is also fresh out the wrapper so I think after a wash the collar won't be as big, idk. the collar on my uniqlo shirt felt huge until I washed it.

    also, I'm going to chalk the bulky shoes up to angle and the slimness of the pants. when I wore them with my denims no one said they looked too big :/

    appreciate the comments everyone. not there yet, but at the very least I've improved from this, lol.

    also, I'm a funny looking kid, but you guys can do better than the mad magazine comparison. and the shirt isn't buttoned all the way...the top button is undone. but the second button is really high. probably should have undone both.

    Not to nitpick, but it's not actually a band collar shirt, right? I agree with your statement in principal, however, because I think that doing up all the buttons tends to accentuate the fact that he has a short neck.

    ^you're right, it's club colalr and i don't know why i wrote band.
    however, they are similar in that they both look weird with top button unbuttoned, to me at least.

    So...maybe wear with pants where you can tuck or get the shirt hemmed? I almost never tuck my shirts in, but I also get the hem shortened if they hang too close to the crotch of my pants, and I'm reasonably tall.

    I agree that tucked shirt + low-rise pants/jeans looks bad, but the length of the shirt (perhaps accentuated by the angle of the photo?) makes it look odd untucked, IMO.

    that collar is a good height for you mikey. Can't even tell if you're buttoning to the top so i don't know what this guy is on about.

    any more specific suggestions? hair is one thing where I'm just kind of dumb founded. I think I need to grow out the top a bit before I can really do anything with it though.

    Mikey, my advice is to get the length on the top (don't get the top cut for a couple or few months) and keep the sides shorter. Once you get the top the way you want, you could experiment with the length on the sides. Why not start looking into different hair products? Wax will give you more texture. Personally, I prefer (Paul Mitchell) sculpting foam over wax, gel, pomade, glue, etc., but am probably in the minority here. Other products don't work well with my very thick, wavy hair and it gets out of control pretty quickly. Wax works well for fine and/or straight hair, though, and d:fi wax is often considered one of the best waxes out there and better than Paul Mitchell's waxes. (Yes, I am a Paul Mitchell slut, ok.) The best advice I can give you is to buy the best products your salon carries rather than cheaping out with the shit sold in grocery/pharmacy stores.
