Hello gentlemen.

I'm going to see how I look after my next visit to the barber, but purchasing a custom hairpiece is something that's emerged upon my horizon lately. I've been letting it go naturally, being certain to keep what I have neat, but I'm at the point now that the widow's peak is receding and a shorter haircut might be in order. I react strongly against that, though; having got a buzzcut when I was a boy, I thought it hideous and felt very insecure until it grew out again. Thus, it always needs to be long enough to be combed. I've been sporting a Roger Sterling in the meantime, but it's only a matter of time until that too is unfeasible.

No doubt, this is a difficult market to navigate, as I'm sure we've all seen some hideous rugs in our day. So I guess my question for those men who wear hairpieces (or at least those willing to admit to it), is what exactly are the better looking, more affordable systems? I know Farrell is well-renowned, but their cost is rather prohibitive. I am willing to travel to a metro area for consultation and I reside in the Northeast.

I have never heard anybody react to a toupée with anything but sniggering.  It's always a figure of fun.  I don't know if it's fair or right, but that's how it is.  You already posted on the "power donut" thread for other opinions on dealing with baldness.
