The hot months are upon us now and with that comes some new styling and profiling. Among my newest fashion acquisitions are:
The Clooney Cut
Marty at Salon 1 whipped out the clippers a couple of weeks ago and laid waste to my hair. While it is easy to manage, I have a nasty cowlick that'll take a couple of weeks to get a handle on. Also, my face is big and really short hairstyles can accentuate it further. Once the mane has grown for another week, it will be the perfect length.
The Right Trousers
Pants are really difficult for me to find. Most normal retailers think that men with 42" waists don't have legs longer than 30". Big and tall stores think that tall men love farmers jeans and poly blends. Online is the way to go. The best jeans and khakis I've gotten in the last 3 years have come from Gap and Old Navy online. And thanks to Galoot Sr. (who worked for the Gap in the seventies and whose wife has been with Gap since 1969) I'm the proud owner of some loose fitting khakis. I kid you not, these are all I've been wearing for two weeks at work. I love them.
Sunglasses at Night
Big head = wide glasses. My new specs came in. Plastic frames...honey colored...and transitional lenses! Yes, I've finally become that kid I wanted to tell off in grade school. You know who I'm talking about. The one whose glasses always seemed to be sunglasses indoors. He thought he was so cool. But, no, his eyes were just light sensitive. Now I have a pair. Luckily, they don't seem to go too dark indoors. Just in case, if you want to fight with me because of them, please allow me to take them off first.
