"I agree, father used to take me to his barber growing up. Back then I was mostly to be seen and not heard and father would choose my hair styles, but there was a lot to be taken in. The conversations between men is nothing something you'll hear…"
"The rules are evening wear starts at 6pm tails i'd avoid before then for sure. Tails are a more formal option as opposed to a straight tux jacket, usually an invite will specify white tie or something if they want you to wear tails. "
"SO i have this website for fellow bowtie wearers like us, some of you are on there but some are not, you guys should check it out. Also to the ones that are already on there, you've not posted much lately, i'm trying to increase the…"
