Anything I could try? I suppose shaving the whole thing would help but I'm too lazy/busy to shave regularly (kid) and so this is easiest for me right now. Also, too: I live in a dry climate (current humidity ~15%).

Here's a recent picture of the offending beard, spoilered for large.

I have this problem, which I mitigate by keeping my beard trimmed and washing thoroughly. I think the dry climate is a red herring, since I live in London which isn't dry by any stretch of the imagination.

Hmmm. I have a poster being displayed at a conference that I'll be forced to attend. Usually where I work we get away with just slacks and dress shirts, and occasionally a tie for big meetings. Are there any brands of jackets I should look into for tall and skinny people? I have no jackets or suits of any sort.

I've had good luck with Calvin Klein, they usually have a 'slim' and 'extra slim' version of their suits. Also, take it in to a tailor, for $30 or so, it will end up looking much better.

So, after reading the last page of this thread, I bought a DE safety razor. I’m pretty happy with it. I’m not sure if there is much of a difference in skin friendliness, but it definitely made shaving more enjoyable.

It takes a while, and you will have bad days, I'm sure you really are much better than when you started: Just don't shave for a couple days to heal and give it another go.

As I've gotten older (I'm mid-30s), I've noticed an interesting phenomenon. When I pee standing up, I have a really good, nearly orgasmic sensation in my dick. This doesn't happen when I pee sitting down. I find myself drinking too much on purpose just so I can pee again.

I'm a little worried that this might be some sort awesome symptom of ass- or nad-cancer. Is this just a normal thing that I haven't heard of before?

Looking for beard advice. I recently shaved off my mustache and to some degree my upper cheeks. Can't seem to decided if my resulting facial hair looks alright. Should I shave more, and if so, where?

That's what I'd eliminate. I am also very wary of mustacheless beards, they give a sort of less than glammy 19th century look to me.

I'd recommend shaving the bit extending down your neck on either side, it works well with the unkempt lumberjack look, but not with the Abe Lincoln type thing.

Related question, I plan on doing something with my facial hair for Halloween. Since I'm shaving it all off the next morning for Movember, I can do any style I want. I'm stuck between going as some form of Abe, or as the creepy thin moustache candy man type.


Edit: Beaten like a dead horse.

Alrighty then, I'll have a go at that. I'm leaving for a night out soon, so I'll see what people think.

Edit: Even though nearly everyone I saw tonight I'd seen last night, no one even acknowledged that I'd since shaved. *shrugs*

Lovely boingboing thing on why you should not wear a fedora.

http://boingboing.net/2012/10/02/why-th ... t-gee.html

"The problem is that the fedora has become a go-to accessory for a peculiar subculture of love-entitled male nerds whose social inexperience and awkwardness manifests in a world rocked by a gender revolution—a tectonic shift in the makeup of formerly cloistered, rule-bound clubs. They aren't bad people – they simply need a place from which to draw a sense of manhood, if not from women. When deciding how to represent themselves in a dating profile, why wouldn’t they cling to a fashion emblem from a bygone age, a time when guy was just a guy and a doll was just a doll? A fashion which recalls Frank Sinatra and Al Capone, a conventional masculinity marked by elegant detachment and an appeal to women that remains decidedly independent of their approval?"

Yeah. A fedora typically gives me a bad first impression. Some can pull it off, but most contemporary fedora-wearers can't.

In many respects, the same goes with wearing a suit. If you don't have what it takes, you look like a car salesman.

With the latter, I think it's mostly due to wearing a too-formal suit. There are a bunch of fabrics that don't cause that effect.

whatever, boingboing article, i am always pretty skeptical of people who try to claim any X article of clothing is obviously just being worn by X for Y reasons so don't wear it. maybe some people just like hats?

Fedoras are okay if worn with discretion. I don't know about the creepy appeal to women part but they do make you look like a weasel if you have too thin a face.

It mostly depends on whether guys just wear the hats or pose pulling those silly faces, I guess.

The most charitable response to that would likely be euthanasia.

The UK page also has specific injunctions against joining a mo bro joining their mo to the sideburns. Not so in the permissive United States.

That's interesting.

I'm fortunate, in that my terrible 'tache doesn't naturally grow anywhere near my sideys/beard.

It's an isolated, sparse patch of manliness - yet manly is still is.

I wish I had the requisite hormones to participate. I do or do not shave various parts of my body, but the parts I would be willing to not shave are the ones I already do that with.

I'm really really tempted to shave Belial's while he's sleeping sometime and then do something absurd and tape it to my upper lip, or the cat, just to see what his reaction is in the morning.
