grooming tips for the modern gentleman


eighteen months in the north and i never went to the tache. disgraceful. if it'd exclusively featured moustachioed turns and ran special zapata only nights you'd never've got me out of the joint obviously. hell maybe they did and i just didn't know. it's just the sort of thing blackpool would do what with blackpool being so fantastic and all. it's just impossible to resist that killer polo neck and zapata combo and just crushing when you put it next to massive hair and bambi eyes. next to for gawds sake next to. oh jesus. like nancy and lee.

I've never been tempted with a 'tache, but did try a beard briefly (until it got itchy).

I can never understand people who shave sideburns above the level of the ear - it looks a bit 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest'. Great tunes - have you heard the more recent 'Burning Down The Spark'?

what just a beard and no tache - you mean in a goateed jazz boy kind of way ? please not one of those super weird just under the chin ones ?

burning down the spark is a corker ain't it. i like a bit of calexico.

Nah - this was a John Martyn earthy earnest beard. I was 24 and thought you had to be grown up and mature at that age, so bought a Clapton album and grew a beard both got swift shrift a couple of weeks later - I don't get those crazy chinstraps at all..

Top tache tuneage. Poor Man's my fave - liking that tinkly harpsichord sound.

People who grow chinstraps think they're going to look like jazzmen or ancient Greek philosophers or something. They don't. They look like garden gnomes.

Know anyone who's done Movember? The thing where you spend November growing a 'tache for charity?

I quite fancy that...

I've got a cracking beard on the go at the moment! But it's going any day now... the reason? I fell for this once before, the ol beard in the summertime lark. Come July you think i'll get rid of it, and then to my horror you look like a negative of someone with a beard! as the rest of your face has caught a bit of colour, and you have this deathly white 'no beard'... It's winter plumage or nothing...
