How painful is getting a tattoo? I want to get one on my scalp to cover up a surgical scar. Would that area be more painful than normal?

I've got a wedding coming up, and I'm tempted to use it as an excuse to get a suitsupply made to measure thing. There's a styleforum spreadsheet that rates them quite highly, but they're Americans and the service there might be different, or there might better options here.
Can one of are citylads tell me if this is a good idea?

Is this a tailored suit or a bespoke suit? And what purposes do you see yourself using the suit for? If you are just going to buy a dull all purpose suit, I wouldn't see the point in paying the extra for something you could buy a decent version of on the high street.

The point of getting a tailored or bespoke suit is not about a quality of manufacturing but a choice of materials and style.

If all you are doing is getting the suit made to measure are you sure it is justified? Without knowing what you will be paying is it worth that over the regular store suit?

To justify a suit like that, it has to be something special.

>but they're Americans and the service there might be different, or there might better options here.

As a general rule people looking for suits from abroad get them from east Asia as a normal Joe you can afford to pay a skilled tailor for their valuable time there rather than one in America.

It depends. If you can find a decent fit by having a high street suit altered, it's not really worth the risk and hassle of ordering online. If you're a weird shape and have always struggled to find a good fit, I can wholeheartedly recommend one of the cheap MTM tailors.

If you do go for it, I'd strongly recommend paying a local seamstress to measure you up - it shouldn't be too expensive and you'll avoid the risk of cocking up your own measurements.

As others have said, unless you're a particularly odd shape, buying off the peg then getting it fitted at a seamstress is likely a much better idea and will look exactly as good.

Even with accurate measurements to give, I don't think I'd want to rely on a suit being sent to me I've never tried on - even the worst alterations shop will at least be able to see how a suit wears on you in real life, and can adjust accordingly.

Unless you're really set on the idea of choosing your own fabrics and so on, I'd advise against it.

Whichever way you go though, I'd also recommend getting your shirts fitted too. That was a game changer for me.

Once I hit my late 30s and had a bit of a mid-life crisis, I went the opposite way. The sudden realisation that I was creeping up to 22 stone and getting married, was the kick up the arse I needed to lose weight. I am at the heaviest I have been in 5 years at 16 stone, but at my lightest I was 14 and a half.

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.

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.

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.

Somewhat.
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.

This.

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?

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.
