I know Yoox do frequent reductions but this one seems the first proper Summer sale by them. Some nice Italian knits, shirts, jackets or strides there, but also lots of well known international brands at a fraction of the price: Ralph L, Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, Beams +, Todd Snyder, Orlebar Brown, Levi's, Battenwear, Lacoste... You've got to be patient but the occassional gem pops up:

It depends on the person, some ladies wouldn't dare to handle the task, even if it's apparently simple, and I admit being quite clumsy myself when it comes to manual tasks, so hairclippers are a great invention, not just for us follicullarly challenged (a silly euphemism if there ever was one) but for less demanding gents in need of a haircut.

Train up the Mrs to cut your hair Mike. I have`nt visited a barber in years but get the wife to give me a `McQueen special` every two weeks. ;)

Oh-uh. I'm afraid I don't have a "Mrs" but I do have a close personal friend that is "experimenting" her own hair, and so far has not offered to take a whack at mine ;) My barber has been doing mine for almost 30 years now, I going to wait it out, see what happens... I've no where to go anyway!

Are the barbers still closed round yours Mike?
I had my first haircut since the lockdown seven weeks ago and went back again yesterday. I still have PTSD from my Mam’s dreaded attempts to be frugal and inflict pudding bowl haircuts on me and my brothers when we were nippers so I wouldn’t trust an untrained person anywhere near my napper with scissors or clippers.
I used to work with a lad who did his own. Said it took a bit of trial and error especially doing the back in the mirror but he did a decent job. Wish I had the bottle to try that out.
I know a few people who've done that. Actually Rod, I did get my first trim last week, they opened the shops on the 18th of June. My barber wears a mask, I wear one, they keep the clients and employees to a minimum, take your temp when you walk in, etc., I'm wearing it kind of longer lately for a change (I know, breakin' the rules!), so it was no big deal for me not getting it cut the last few months...

Wow , you wear a mask while he cuts your hair !  What happens when he gets to your side breezers??

Wondering myself too, a tricky one

 I don't even get the mrs anymore , l am self ssufficient hair cuts noo. Sometimes the wean does my neck or checks it over but usually we are good . I met my last barber in the post office a couple of weeks ago and he said something like " well l can see the house arrest hasn't affected your hairstyle!!"

I'm afraid barbers aren't going to thrive with fellas like us, amigo. Same situation here, the mrs has a final check-out and that's that

No photo but today -

Oxblood bass weejun loafers
Orange socks
Brown Gun club check Jump The Gun trousers
Nice light brown square buckle leather belt
Bright green knitted polo (sourced by Scott Fraser Simpson)

Should I get a hair cut? Or a 6am beer? Might just sit in the park tbh!

Sounds good, Robin, but why not a pic? I've just explained (for the umpteenth time) how to upload them!  ;)

Pic when the hair is cut my friend hahaha!

I haven't been to my barber since February, still isn't safe to go IMO.
Let your "Freak Flag Fly"!  ;D

That's from David Crosby's "Almost cut my hair", a paranoid song if there ever was one
