Brian S replied to Christopher Chmiel's discussion I want to grow a beard
"All I would add to the comments below is about combing. Once you have a density or  a sort of density, I would comb it. My hair is a bit curly and needs to be trained to go in a certain direction. You may now have this problem but…"

Brian S replied to J. D.'s discussion Short rant about uptight dudes in the group The Shirtless Man
"His reaction certainly seems a bit extreme. Especially when he is at your daughter's party. The weather in England is perfect right now for going shirtless and I intend to take full advantage. Less washing of shirts for one thing but also nice…"

Brian S replied to Andrew Campbell's discussion Is a Tankard too much ?
"I have never used a tankard. I think it could be quite practical (without the lid) in a pub. Less likely to get knocked over and less likely to break. "

Brian S replied to Raphael Friedman's discussion Ties in a non-tie world
"Am not a huge fan of ties, but, like you used to, I wear them for work. Best advice is: whatever the main colour of the shirt is, wear it with a tie where that colour is present but in a minor way. I have a checked shirt with several colours in…"

Brian S replied to Dean Roberts's discussion So Long Men's Barbers
"To be honest, I don't know if Barbers have to be licensed in UK. I got lucky when I moved to Birmingham and found a Turkish barbershop just 5 minutes walk away from my place. It's GBP 12 for a cut and same price for beard work. Seems about…"

Jason Rex Fraser replied to Brian S's discussion Advice in the group Riflemen
"Depends on the state and the bird, but for the most part you probably do. It is a state by state thing, so you would want to look up the state you're visiting law, license, and birds in season. A license is generally pretty affordable and in…"

Jason Rex Fraser replied to Brian S's discussion Beards in the workplace

David R. replied to Brian S's discussion Beards in the workplace
