Weren't puddle moppers flared and designed to go over the shoe? People these days seem to wear normal cut jeans which end up bunching up horribly above the shoe.

I wet shave my balls and the irritation really isn't that bad - it's definitely worth the extra sensitivity. I think the mistake most people make is not applying a liberal amount of skin cream directly afterwards, along with in the morning and evening. Everywhere else I just trim short with an electric razor.

Just wipe down your face with a dedicated and frequently cleaned face towel. Soft enough not to flay you but rough enough that it'll take the layer of dry skin and grease off your face. Change your pillow cases whenever you wash your face towel and you're golden.

Other than that, a cheap facial cleanser (I use Boots' own brand) should be enough.

If you spend loadsamoney then you're a daftie.

6056 Safety Razor
I can't seem to find any impartial comparisons of safety razors versus more modern multi-blade razors. I've been using a Gillette Mach 5 I got a couple's of Christmases ago and changing the blades once every couple of weeks, but I'm not particularly satisfied with it - it doesn't seem to shave particularly closely, and I often find myself with razor burn.

So, I'm looking to change razor. Every site that seems to have comparisons seems be called like, "The Victorian Hipster Gentleman's Male Quality Grooming Goods Emporium" and extolls the virtues of safety razors like they do this week's artisan craft beer.

Are they really better? I do like the slight environmental advantage - not chucking plastic every couple of weeks, but seems like they can be somewhat snake-oily to actually buy the razor holder; some being 3 figures.

It works out a hell of a lot cheaper, you can get a better shave, but there is a learning curve. A multi-blade cartridge razor is designed to give you a decent shave even if you're completely cack-handed, but it takes a bit of practice to shave well with a safety razor. You don't need to spend a fortune - this kit costs less than £15 and is perfectly good to try out DE shaving. There are loads of decent tutorials on YouTube.

The razors are cheaper than cartridges, sometimes drastically.
Using a straight razor requires slightly more agility than the multi-blade thingy - it's easier to nick yourself.
I find that it shaves cleaner than the multi-blade, I don't have to make several passes over most areas of my bony face.

Sage because I usually don't faff with it, electric shaver does the job even if it's not quite perfect.

currently going through the process of whitening via dentist, steps as such:

got a mould made of my teeth at the dentist
come back 2 weeks later, get personalised kit with teeth whitening gel, syringe things and my plastic mould to squirt gel in
every evening before i go to bed i squirt gel in the mould and put it on my teeth overnight (but often i can only last four hours before it gets too burn-ey), it's quite uncomfy to wear and very strongly acidic so it hurts like a bitch if your teeth are at all sensitive (mine are a bit so i have to alternate nights).

the results have been quite good so far tbh, i wasn't expecting like jurgen klopp results but then again i think the creepy whitening shit is done via veneers which are like 10 grand a tooth so you'd prob go down my route which cost me 290 quid for the mould and the set of gel and syringes (and dental advice).

(A good day to you Sir!)

I have an 'assessment day' lined up with a tech contractor. I typically wear this sort of get-up when I'm trying to look professional - smart blue or white shirt with khakis and sometimes a tie. I'm sure it sounds informal to some but in my experience it's what people in my field look like. And a full-blown suit seems a little OTT given it's not a one-on-one interview.

My question is, what shoes do I wear with it? I usually wear boots, which doesn't get glances in academia but would probably look off in a professional setting. What sort of footwear matches this? Before anyone mentions it, despite my generally awful dress sense I'm aware of the cardinal rule of matching belt with shoes.

Any help much appreciated.

Depends on the car.

My fabia does over 50mpg at 50mph on the motorway.
At 70 it's more like 40-45mpg.

With a 6-speed gearbox it wouldn't drop as quickly when you get above 50.

The question is utterly meaningless without knowing what you are driving. Different engines have different levels where they are most efficient in outputs, different shape vehicles have different wind resistance.

In my current car, there's only about 100rpm difference between 70 and 80 in 6th gear. In my last one it was close to 1000, so significantly different results.

Drive your car in top gear at 70 and 80 then get back to us. Or just post your make, model and year here.

Dropped my watch in the loo last night. Fished it out quickly enough, but later spotted some condensation. Put it in a Tupperware type container with the crown out and the mother of all silica gel bags in the window where it would get direct sunlight for a few hours. There was still some there. Moved the box to a radiator for a few hours. It's still not done, but the bag and the container now have a slightly nasty smell like something was burnt.

If it doesn't clear up overnight, what do I do and roughly how much lighter is my wallet likely to be?

Pic is not the actual watch, obviously.

Rice just doesn't do a great job of absorbing moisture from air.
Just get some silica gel, you can get a huge bag for a few quid. That will absorb humidity down to a few percent RH, and it will get the watch bone dry.

Still not quite done, though that might be because it looks like when I left it there this morning I forgot to take the crown back out. Doesn't look like there's much moisture left though. Can't imagine that the silica pack the size of my hand is anywhere near saturated yet.

Does what you wear really matter that much as to how good you look?

I'd imagine that it's slightly different for women as the likes of hair and make-up can have a drastic effect but, from my observations, for men looking good is 90% how the clothes hang off you and 10% what the actual clothes are.

In other words, if you're a man then if you look good you're better off focusing on working out than your wardrobe.

5907 Watches
I was sure we had a wristwatch thread, but maybe the topic just came up elsewhere. A relative of mine has just offered to get me a watch for Chrimbo, with a budget of up to 120 quid-ish. I'm in over my head so I thought I'd ask for some advice. I've narrowed down my options but only slightly.

First option is a fitness watch. I bought a £20 quid Fitbit knockoff a year ago that inevitably broke and whose heart monitor was a bit shit, but is the extra Fitbit functionality worth paying four times the price? I actually quite liked the look of it, but I wouldn't feel great wearing it on a date.

Next option is just a classic Casio digital watch, but will I look like a complete tryhard arse wearing one? I have no idea what the fashion protocol is here. And I suspect that women would be rather put off by it. Which is a vain concern admittedly, but vanity has to be at least a small factor in this decision somewhere.

Lastly, and probably my preferred option, is just a classic analogue. Absolutely nothing that has gold on it, and nothing that's the size of a dinner plate and adorned with lots of pointless doodads that clutter the face. I like silver, white and black minimalist styles that don't look too feminine if that helps - pic related is my sort of style, although the face is a bit large for my liking. Does anyone know of any decent brands in the £100 range? I'm getting good at identfying the Chinese knockoffs with vaguely-European sounding names, but it's a lot to sift through. If there's a British manufacturer in this range than all the better.

Apologies for having an unhelpfully large scope, I'm under a bit of time pressure since they want to order it this weekend. Any help is greatly apppreciated.

If it makes you feel any better, I just learned from today's episode of Couples Come Dine With Me that skagen is just the Swedish words for shrimps. A pretty awful name for a watch brand frankly.

Makes me even happier I picked the Bering, you never know when you're going to bump into a Swede who's longing for an excuse to sneer at lesser beings for their gauche fashion sense.
