I'm collecting research for an upcoming blog post about what men do with themselves when their hair starts to go. Do you shave it off altogether? Do you comb-over? Are you letting it go naturally?…Continue

"Shakespeare was shoved down my throat in Theatre school and left a bad taste in my mouth, so naturally I wouldn't have thought of his "war" plays like you did. Why more armored plays?"

Movember Mustache:The Hitler

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 11:47am 3 Comments

Welcome to Movember! This year, we’re doing a famous mustache series. For our mid-Movember Mustache, the Toothbrush, 2 -3 centimeters of whiskers, synonymous with one of the most criminally insane minds of modern history, Adolf Hitler.

The Toothbrush was a popular American mustache style starting in the nineteen-teens, brought to life by entertainers of the day like Oliver Hardy and Charlie Chaplin. Once brought to Germany, the younger generation immediately took it on to replace the…

It has always been my opinion that a man's strength lies in his shoulders. Whereas women's bodies have two expanses - the shoulders and the hips that meet at the waist (the smallest point of a woman's torso and what I think of as the point of our femininity), men's shoulders are much larger, broader, and rounder, holding his power and displaying his magnificence.

Zoologist, Desmond Morris, said in his BBC series, The Human Animal,  that a man's wide shoulders above a narrow …

The truth about pants (dedicated to a disgruntled Toronto Star reader)

People tell me I’ve hit the big time when I receive hate mail.

I write as the men’s entrepreneurial image expert in the Toronto Star‘s Small Business section, and one day, I got a 4 am email from an intelligent but angry reader who couldn’t believe that I would waste his time talking about something as unimportant as socks.

He got…

Best water based pomade for under $8?

I use Murray's, but it hasn't been holding well or giving me much height lately, due to the humidity. I live in Maryland and it is very humid, all year round. It doesn't work well because of that. I love Murray's because it lasts a while and it works well with my wallet. I have a minimum wage job that makes it hard for me to buy expensive products. So, what is the best water based pomade for under $8? I'm looking for one with high hold and low to medium shine.See More
