    Fix Up, Look Sharp v7! (Nobody made a new thread so I did Edition)
    Massive credit goes to Tehfrog, for his excellent V5 OP.


    Hello, and welcome to Fix Up! Look Sharp! Facepunch’s very own fashion thread. Before you start posting, please read the suggestions and guidelines listed below.


    Some posting guidelines!


    1. Be nice! I know it is tempting to lash out at people who you don’t agree with, but the last thing we need is someone to get banned. Remember that we are a community, not a boxing ring.

    2. Be respectful! People have different styles, some may even vary wildly from your own. At least try to be civil when speaking to them about their choices.

    3. Be constructive! If you are responding to someone looking for advice, try to offer constructive criticism, not just insults.

    4. Have fun! Don’t get too worked up about someone’s choice of legwear, it isn’t worth the energy to start a fight.


    Some basic guidelines for looking your best!


    1. Find clothing that fits you right. This is the most important rule in fashion. If your jeans are too loose, or too tight, you will look silly (and nobody wants that!)

    2. Try to avoid wearing clothing that could be thought of as obnoxious, or excessively loud. (A great example of this is this shirt; http://fighterxfashion.com/wp-conten...ay-guida11.jpg )

    3. Don’t be afraid to shop around! You can find many great pieces where you least expect them.

    4. Find a style that fits your tastes. Don’t try and squeeze into a style that you feel uncomfortable in!

    5. Try things on, and experiment, it is always good to expand your horizons. And, if you aren’t sure of a certain piece you are considering, we can help!

    6. In most cases, you should avoid things like trench coats and fedoras. These two pieces were popular many decades ago, but have since fallen out of fashion, and have become very difficult to pull off.


    Some helpful tips on hygiene!


    1. Keep clean shaven! Facial hair can be hard to pull off, and honestly, most guys look better without it.

    2. Keep your hair shorter! Same thing as shaving, shorter hair is easier to pull off, easier to clean, and in many cases just looks better.

    3. Keep yourself clean! Shower often! With shampoo! Also, solid stick deodorant is of the utmost importance for making sure you smell fresh throughout the day.

    4. Acne sucks, and it is something that most of us have to deal with at some point in our life. You can help minimize your acne by keeping clean, and following the tips in the website below!

    Wayfarers are good, albeit they're on the expensive side.


    You could try these: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/designe...ass-lens-80800


    Apparently they're pretty good quality for ray ban knockoffs

    Go to a decent unisex hairdressers/barbers, but before you do that, do a bit of research then discuss it with the person cutting your hair as a bit of small talk and ask if they have something with hairstyles in it like some sort of thing with magazine clippings and photos. You should probably ask if they have anything that requires little or no product to look good as it's nice to have a hairstyle that you don't need to fix every morning and still look somewhat decent.

    I did this when I got my hair cut today and all I do is put a bit of hair product in the front of my hair and mess it up a bit.

    add in "revolveclothing.com" to the list, it has a lot of higher end stuff there, but more importantly a 30% discount if you're a new customer. That's a lot of money saved if you check out with over a hundred dollars worth in your cart.


    lmao

    They're feeling kind of played out, least imo

    Just make sure you get ways that fit your face. I've seen many cases where people didn't care I guess and they look silly in them.

    The reason I don't want it cut too short is that I'm afraid it will look bad and I can't change it back; I need suggestions.

    For any Aussies out there, I don't know if this is nationwide, but Roger David is having quite a good sale. Selling dress shirts for $20 (usually $80) as well as buy one get the second one half price. Which basically means I bought 2 shirts yesterday for $30 which is pretty insane.

    I also decided to buy a new pair of shoes from Spend-Less shoes and wow, so cheap.

    Do you guys want pics?
