ITT: critique my fashion
What shoes do you wear on a date?
I've had no need for suits or formal shoes for a long time and so have non. I've just had casual relationships and so never really dressed up for dates.
But now I'm in a serious relationship and I want to take her somewhere nice. I'm not wearing a suit, but i should probably have some nicer shoes than sneakers.
I'm kind of poor so $150 is about the limit. Someone recommended black desert boots but supposedly its a meme.
tl;dr whats a not too expensive nice shoe to dress up for a date?

How can I come to terms with my hideous, miserable, balding head? I feel sick to my stomach every time I see my reflection on a window, and every treatment out there is tedious and gets mediocre results. Do girls actually care about hair? Will shaving my head change my mindset about the whole thing?
Bro, if you're not new here you should by now that the only way you're going to salvage your looks is by shaving it or by being a man and wear it with confidence. Your choice.
My advice, shave it. It makes you appear taller and more confident.
I can almost guarantee if you're balding now that it'd look better if you just shaved it and got used to it than it would if you keep on pretending to have hair, trying to cover it up.
It'd look more clean, and your self confidence would adjust.
Give it a chance atleast. The hair you currently have will grow out if you don't like it.
Is mnml.la /fa/ approved?
Thoughts on the brand/their products?
How much has all the time you've spent researching fashion paid off?
What are the tangible benefits to your life?
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but it concerns grooming.
I'm wanting to get into shaving with a safety razor. I've heard that they're a much better shave and you won't be left irritated and prone to ingrown hairs and acne breakouts and things like that. They also end up cheaper than disposables in the long run.
After a bit of preliminary research, I've already decided what razor I'm going to get (Merkur Solingen HD (34C)) There's also a nifty little starter kit for it. Now this is going to cost around $150 AUD which I didn't mind initially but I'm just now wondering... what exactly am I paying for? I don't mind dropping $60 on the razor itself. But $80 for a brush? $25 for some sort of luxury shaving cream? And to top it off, the starter kit doesn't come with a stand but the place I'm looking at sells stands for $80-$115 dollars. I can accept that there might be some sort of difference in quality for the razor and I was on the fence about the brush. But just seeing that a fucking stand can go for $115 just makes me think they're taking the piss and the whole thing is a fucking meme. It's like... they can't run the same rort on men as they do with women and cosmetics and skincare shit so they do it with men and shaving. Just the same way that they can't sell earrings and other forms of luxury jewellery to men but they'll sell a gimmick "precision watch" that can tell time accurately 300m underwater.
I want to get the best of shaving with a safety razor but I'm worried that I'm falling into a consumerist gimmick trap. Nothing against people who don't mind paying extra for quality. It's just not "me." Would I be just as well buying a $20 safety razor and supermarket shaving cream that doesn't need a boar hair brush?
I was once like you asking about shaving with a DE on /fa/. I went for it and enjoy it thoroughly these days.
Can you link the starter kit? I don't know much about availability for Aussies. But you can do much better than $150
1. Look for in house starter razors, stores like Maggard razors have Merkur clones that are much cheaper and nice to start out on
2. Get a cheap synthetic brush, much easier to use for a beginner and you may not need anything more
3. Some creams/soaps are worth the $25 price tag, but there are budget ones that work very well too. I can recommend some budget stuff but it'd help to know what cream you're looking at
4. You don't need a stand!
By the way, you're right about the "meme" aspect. Some stores upcharge using words like "luxury" and "men's grooming". With that said DE shaving can be had very cheap, you just need to do a bit of research and know what you're looking at and not fall for the luxury trap.
Whomst gonna cop?
1. YOUR AGE, AND SEX, ARE IRRELEVANT FACTORS WHEN DECIDING WHAT HAIRCUT TO GET; THE RELEVANT FACTORS ARE YOUR FACESHAPE, YOUR HEADSHAPE, AND YOUR HAIR'S TEXTURE —WAVY, STRAIGHT, CURLY.
2. DEFINE "CLEAN AND TRADITIONAL".
I look like shit. Any tips to make me look better? Am I too young to shave my head?
What's the best levi jean number?
slim-fit is no more
I'd be fine with this if it was longer, and perhaps even cuffed. It looks anesthetically too short for me. I still prefer slimmer, somewhat more tapered trousers cuts in general.
discuss chinos. I think they are a great alternative to jeans.
Since the trend of skinny jeans is going away, wide chinos like dickies are especially great and trendy.
