5256 Rings
How much should I pay for a man's solid silver ring? Costs seem to vary considerably in the shops. I am looking for a plain ring with no real design to it.

Do I look for sterling silver?

5233 Big shoes for a big guy
For the men who are or were 300lbs, what is/was your shoe size? It seems like my feet are too wide for 13s so I just ordered some 14s. Hopefully, that'll be bearable.

Depending what kind of shoes you're after buying, they generally come in widths as well as lengths. I've got quite fat feet, so when I'm after dress shoes I often have to order into a shop to make sure that they're wide enough for my sturdy hooves.

May I hijack this thread? I'd like to hear some advice on a similar topic.

How do I figure out which haircuts will suit me and which won't? Is there some sort of a guide like that picture about choosing glasses?

I'm sporting a butch cut right now. I'd like to try something new, the only requirements being low maintenance and short hair length.

The picture is an example of a haircut I fancy. I'm not sure if it will look good on me though.

What's the best way to dry your bumcrack after showering or taking a bath?

Toilet paper leaves clags behind and no matter how thoroughly I wash it seems to be up to chance whether or not they'll come back a little bit brown, so I don't want to use a towel and risk leaving brown stains on it.
Simply not drying it is no good, it leaves you feeling squelchy all day.

I agree with this chap. You don't need to shave it all off, just neaten it up. Go to a decent barber's and ask them to tidy it up and shape it for you; a well-kept beard certainly won't keep you from finding a job, but it will make everyone think you're a hipster. I assume you're used to that by now though.

I'm growing my hair to nirp length. Don't ask why, it's just something I have to do.

Regardless, what should I be doing to it before it gets that long in relation to cutting/trimming it? It's on just really spilling out of my collar now, but it's very "bottom heavy" and I'm looking to avoid a pseudo-Osmond-do if possible.

OP here, it has been two years since I last had a shear, but twice this week I've been inspired to do so again.

First it was a dream in which I had short hair and enjoyed it, and because you should do everything your imagination tells you to my mind was already made up. But just now I started watching Prometheus and remembered that David was the reason for another haircut soon after I first saw the film. That guy's so cool looking.

I'll be handing in my Long Hair Club membership card and club issue Browning 9mm later this week.

If I'm growing my hair out, do I still need to get it cut, so it doesn't just become a mess? Currently all my hair is the same length, I'm not sure if I need to get it tidied up or if that'll just make the growing process take longer.

5152 Emergency Trainers
Slight emergency

I have this thing, this Thursday. It possibly involves a bit of running but more than likely will not.

I had contemplated buying a proper pair of trainers that are comfortable, grip well and are designed for a small amount of running. But my current trainers seemed to work well enough. That was until I went out earlier when it was a bit drizzly and they seemed to slip a little over a metal grate on the pavement.

So now I have to find a pair of trainers that accomplish the prior mentioned characteristics AND in either Sports Direct or Decathalon as amazon estimate that they won't be able to deliver trainers before Thursday. Not to mention I'm not about to spend more than £30 on trainers, never have never will.

So what do you lads recommend?

Brand is irrelevant. £30 is about what you would expect to pay for an off brand equivalent of a £70 pair of Nikes or Adidas.

Speak to the person in the shop about what you need them for and he'll show the most expensive ones they have, then get a budget pair in the same style and function.

I don't suppose there's a way to find out what red trainers Kilian Martin is wearing in Altered Route is there? I think they're nice. Another five people asked in the Youtube comments. The suggestions were as follows

>DC match WC model red
>Red Supras

but nothing looks just like them. I think the DC ones have the best resemblance but I wonder if he deliberately removed the logos because of sponsorship with another company or something?

This is probably the right place, right?

So I was about to go on Amazon to buy the cheapest backpack I could find as it turns out all my flatmates use theirs to carry the shopping back meanwhile I use a bag for life that cuts into my fingers on the journey back making my arms sore when I return with enough tinned food to feed several impoverish African villages or Vanessa Feltz .

Then I had a horrid reminder into my school days where your backpack determined your worth and if you chose poorly you'd tell all the other kids that you're a spastic joey.

So what's a good backpack?

I am getting a suit tailored soon. Give me recommendations for materials, colours and all sort of other poofish details. I know that due to my build single breasted always works best.

I am getting it mostly for social type events as I've not had to wear one for work for over six years.

I don't want to look like a corporate type as I did that before and I also don't want to look too eastend gangster either, although that might happen irrespective of the suit. Vaguely Victorian gent or Imperial adventurer without getting into historical re-enactment territory is more the look I want.

5111 shoes too big
Bought some shoes online and they're too big. Already worn them so can't return them. Tried them on in the shop, seemed to fit nicely but they feel too big in the real world. The shoes are the right width but too long. I can feel my feet sliding longitudinally.

Things I've tried: insoles and stuffing some socks into the toe area. Insoles didn't do anything and neither did the socks, maybe I should try more socks? I also read you can try shrinking leather shoes by immersing them in water. I don't think this will work with mine because they're waterproof also I don't want to totally ruin them.

If I take them to a cobbler or a haberdasher is there anything they can do?
