When I met Kumar about a decade ago, he introduced me to the unique world of men's fashion. That initial arousal of my interest in this sub-discipline has grown and has been held ever since. Well, at the very least, I've been "sensitized" to it and can now spot (and smell!) a faux-pas from a mile away! And now, Kumar and myself are forming a dynamic duo (of sorts!) and together, we're endeavoring, to gently nudge and guide men, on to the path of sartorial "enlightenment."

Week Thirty-five: Hairstyles

So I dredged this up as I was searching for extra info on shiny suits - the article does mention the suits, among other things - it's actually a rather comprehensive list of men's fashion trends for 2011. I know it's a bit too late to feature this, when we are well into 2011, midway in fact, but considering that this picture of Kumee is a very poor choice to showcase his new slightly iridescent blue suit, I thought I'd talk about grooming and hairstyles instead, which I very well know could be quite the sensitive subject, especially the former and yet is very much an integral part of fashion and must be considered at some point. Don't worry, I won't talk about superfluous hair this time, I'll stick to the perfectly natural, if mundane business of hairstyles.

As far as the list is concerned, it seems like Kumee's quite in step with hair fashion trends with his new longer "do," lol. Shortly before we got married (besides losing his braces) he chopped off his luxuriant dark longish locks, and got what was referred to as, well, at least (humourously) by my brother's hairdresser, the "Ricky Martin cut" - kinda like the male counterpart of the Jennifer Aniston/Rachel choppy do lol, in its far reaching popularity that peaked in the early part of the new millenium. Nearly a decade later, Ricky has since come out of the closet lol, and Kumee has finally gotten out of the short hair rut and toughed it out long enough to resist the urge to get it cut yet again during that scruffy in-between period as he would for the past eight or so years, and voila! Here's what I call the McDreamy (Kumee's version!)
