Classy short hair cut styles for men that don't require a lot of effort or product that you recommend? Getting my guy a cut at Belmont Barbershop and he needs a new look. thanks!
Hey enajyentihw or whitneyjane!
We’re no experts on hair but we’re eager to answer your question! It’s important to know what hairstyles work for your particular head shape and growing patterns, not to mention the texture, dryness and thickness of your hair. So, ask your barber what they think would work for you and your lifestyle.
Certain cuts and styles work and certain ones take a lot of management. We’ve all got cuts that are little long on top tapered to short on the sides, about a 3 buzzer.
As far as who cuts our hair: Cameron has his girlfriend cut his hair in exchange for some TLC, Jeff has his neighbor, Drew, cut his hair for a 6-pack of beer, and Seth get his hair cut from a Mexican man who charges him “cinco pesos.”
Try something new if you’re ballsy. Jeff’s mother always told him, “It’s only hair, it will grow” after he’s made some bad decisions in the past. (see: “steps,” dreadlocks, etc)
Where can I buy pants like on the pictures on page 8, grey, combined with shirt, baseball jacket and yellow/blue tie? Do you buy your clothes online? Where?
Thanks so much!
Jeff snatched those pants, for reasons that will remain classified, from American Apparel. They are the “Welt Pocket Chambray Pant" in black. They have a mad short inseam and are meant to be worn high on the waist. Jeff likes the fit and the cut of them being high waisted; it’s a different look.
I adore your blog!
I have a problem that maybe you can help me with.
I'm very tall, and very skinny. It's my ideal body shape, but it means I have real trouble finding shirts that fit well. It seems like dress shirts are made to fit the severely overweight. Even the "fitted" or "slim fit" shirts bunch and bulge and are just really, really baggy. And when I buy from brands that make clothes for a skinnier crowd (alternative, american, etc.), I have to buy one size up so the shirt is tall enough, and then I run into the baggy issue again.
I guess my question is this: Should I buy shirts as close to fitting as possible and have them tailored (if so, how much would that cost me?). Or is there a specific brand you would recommend for my body type?
I dont' know if you normally answer questions like this, but thanks!
Buy ‘em big then tailor them in.
Or buy them small and perpetually roll the sleeves.
Shirting brands that fit* Jeff off the rack: Acne, Scotch & Soda, Spurr, Nonnie Threads, Club Monaco, Opening Ceremony, A.P.C., some J.Crew XS,
I have a job interview with an art college. A suit seems too dressy (even without a tie.) I was thinking jeans and a sports coat, but the jeans seem inappropriate for an interview , even if they are ok for the job. This not being your standard college setting, what do you think would be good form?
If you want to wear denim, we’d suggest going dark wash denim with a plain dress shirt with your favorite tie, tie bar or accessory that speaks volumes to your character and creativity. Often times in an interview, you can’t say everything you want to say about who you are and what you’re about. Your wardrobe and accessories can do some of the talking when your words may be limited, and rightfully so at times.
A really special piece that represents a little bit of you. Jeff’s favorite tie bar is the rifle tie bar, so he wears that to special occasions, such as job interviews and weddings. Seth has his dad’s class ring from college that he wears often and not many men wear their dad’s class ring. Cam has a set of vintage deadstock ties that he wears when taking final exams alongside one of his dad’s favorite white oxfords that he snatched from his pop’s closet.
Another option would be to just wear the bottom of your suit with a cardigan instead of the blazer or wear the top of your suit with a pair of khakis. Be yourself and you’ll get the job. Say their name, say their name often. People love to hear their own name said when they are being spoken to; it’s polite & warm.
Hi! Where are your favorite places to shop in Columbia?
Leo’s Closet is a good find on the North end of 9th Street, just above Coffee Zone. It’s kind of a dirty and unkempt, but that’s what I like about it. Bow ties, jackets, scarves and pins. It’s a little overpriced at times.
I ‘ve also had some luck at Blackberry Exchange in the District, I would go in there about once a month to see the latest wears. The buyer curates a nice collection of pieces. I’ve purchased a couple of outwear pieces and little treasures form there.
I heard we got a new Goodwill, but I had moved by then, so I was never able to bask in it’s glory. At the old one, I’ve nabbed some great fabrics, yarn and paintings.
The Salvation Army on Broadway & Providence is a good pick for housewares and random knick-knacks. I’ve snagged a few fleeces and bags there before.
The real deal though?Garage and estate sales on West Broadway, just past West Boulevard, in the summer time. Not only get you walk alongside the beautiful West Broadway streets and see the amazing homes with green lawns, but you get to sift through the homeowners treasures. The homes are beautiful and you can guess they filled this estates with treasures of their own.
Also, just wait till finals week or the week following. People are moving out and pitching gems on the road. Check our former stomping grounds, East Campus, for sweet finds all year long. Check the paper for sales, thats how I purchased/haggled all of my bedroom furniture in college. Or just make friends with upperclassmen who are moving out.
what shoes are these?!
and do you have any idea what the boooots are on the left in this pic?!
