What do we think to these then?
Seeing an awful lot of non-Japanese blokes with these recently.
and back with it long on top and done in a topknot.
Do they ever have the hair hanging and what does that look like?
Might just ask the next bloke I see.
Usually said topknot is kind of greasy though.
but can't bring myself to care at all, sorry.
to 100% mainstream, I think
looks fine on east asian dudes and maybe if you're very fine-featured and attractive otherwise.
on everyone else it's horrendous
How long have you had your current hairstyle for? (And how old are you?)
I've had more-or-less the same haircut for about 15 years. I'm 36 and I can't imagine changing it until baldness kicks in.
Swings from a pompadour to some sort of long fringey thing pretty regularly
current hairstyle probably only for a year. Plus I'm really bad at maintaining it, so it grows really fast and looks totally different. What I used to do was have my haircut semi-long, then leave it for months and grow it out to outrageous lengths. At one stage half way down my back. Cut it sort of short maybe 3 years ago, and have recently decided to keep it really short just in case I go bald (it's not far off, and I didn't want to end up with a Bill Bailey do).
best haircut decision i ever made. about to get my hair cut actually.
but realise it has fuck all to do with me. Very disappointed that none of these dilettantes have gone for the full traditional Chonmage with the shaved top of the head though.
why does anyone care? Unless you're all jealous because you're balding/have horrible lank hair and aren't sure how to channel it?
who are you and what have you done with the real EmO?
It's just a bunch of people with shit hair raging on people with a style that everyone is finding attractive at the moment?
more by the fucking state of the so-defined 'progressive' types here getting judgemental about a fucking haircut?
I think I'm aggressively procrastinating.
but my hair wouldn't grow long enough anymore, is too curly, and is thinning.
For me (as with any new hair trend) - it's not really about the quality or quantity of hair. It's more that it'd be faintly ridiculous for a 36-year-old father of two to suddenly ditch his standard short-back-and-sides and adopt a man bun, even if it made me look like an absolute hotty. It'd be a proper midlife crisis signifier.
but why care about other people who do do it?
I'm not telling you all to go and grow a man bun, just wondering why the fuck people are hating on it so much unless it's tied in to their fragile ego or ideas of masculinity?
Is this in any way consistent with your previous posting on fashion, do you think?
if you want to dress like a fucking baby, then go for it, I don't actually care! For example, Crocs are terrible, but if you're comfortable and you don't give a fuck? Go for it, you do you, boo.
of the 'character' of myself which personally, does care about what I wear/how I look in terms of fashion, but that comes down to either giving me confidence or me being comfortable. I'm probably more bothered about people who try to be fashionable and half ass it, than people who just don't care at all.
just in case you thought I didn't
but given you've met me and you know full well that I'm not always in a fucking 3-piece suit, often look like shit, and have never even given a second thought or passing comment on a single thing that someone else is wearing, you know that I don't actually act or think that way...
if you wear a tie with a short sleeve shirt then you should be fired in to the sun.
a non-tailored suit was a pleb who might as well be wearing a tracksuit.
considering I own 3 ready to wear suits...
moker, that'll be why. Was definitely goading him after he called me 'moneybags'
That said, you can tailor off the peg stuff affordably, which is something some people don't realise, that's true.
I had no idea you felt that way <333333
Just googled your username + fashion. There was all sorts of hideously non-progressive opinions expressed, but I won't embarrass you further.
you think you're really petty?
I suppose yes
esp as it's on the verge of crusting into White Man Dreads
who can't carry it off and thus offends my aesthetic sensibilities. It's like having to look at a bad painting or listen to a Nickelback album.
I don't care that much?
not you btw!
Personally I think they look a bit daft but hey, live and let live.
who tied it up for matches. Now see it a lot on the type of people who buy all their clothes on ASOS and will actually use those 'Get The Look!!' guides.
Zlatan can get away with it. Everyone else, no.
A lot of people cannot though, however.
as it's a very affected look. Same kind of person who will wear, say, a trilby and not feel extremely self conscious.
Because I've mostly seen them on giant viking men.
Everyone who has one is a raging bellend, and look terrible
I know we're a judgemental lot, it just pushes the boundaries of irony when it's about fashion
Zero? I'm surprised DiS.
YOU spell it right
Remember when Xylo went Full Leave Britney Alone over that Avril Lavigne video where she's really cringe and pretends to do loads of japanese stuff? good times
Proper weird shit.
Used to be we'd get a whole sub-thread about it. Now it's a jibe about spelling and that's it. We're all so well behaved now.
as opposed to just having their hair tied up, in a bun. Something which is ubiquitous in most cultures, even if it is traditionally more associated with women in western culture. So really you're just perpetuating a binary society by suggesting as such.
merely expressing surprise*, time was it'd been in first 10 replies ;)
*Feeding the animals.
as much as a guy with a shortback and sides. It's all individual innit.
I'm sure it'll hit reading by 2019 or so, no worries
and post the fucking gif
Basic administrative error on my part there, thanks for sweeping up
You've had a lot on, but we're a team and we'll get this done together.
because some are models etc.
Also, I highly doubt any male who has a bun was the one who coined the term 'man bun'.
it was probably coined by a buzzfeed writer or something
It's a broad church, it could be emancipating for some but it's completely individual.
Last Samurai Prickdo?
is a fundamental misunderstanding of the differences between bun and a top knot.
Also, nice stereotypical racism there!
is Hors D'ouevre
(poetic licence employed)
YOU spelled it wrong. IDIOT DICKHEAD
that our kids will laugh at when they show archive footage of people from the 2010s on TV
do wonder if we're going to lose the decade as the bracket for thinking about trends like this
This is just a bloke with long hair tying it up for whatever reason, it's not for me but whatever:
This however is a collective societal bout of insanity that literally nobody thinks looks anything other than ridiculous (including those that sport it):
and also I don't get it because how many ways can you wear your hair when it's cut like that? Like surely the advantage of longer hair is variety of styles available? That said, I'm sure he's happy with it, so power to him.
it's going to take a while to grow back to being even.
top was a bit longer - everyone was doing it - it was an "indie" thing to do at the time
also it meant I could grow my hair long and tuck it into my white trilby hat whilst working at Waitrose to look smart
but after this thread i might grow my hair a bit and get one, take a selfie and post it here
you have my full support
If you have long hair, a bun is oftentimes the most practical way of getting it out of your face. I wear my hair in a bun most days. So actually, this shouldn't be any more of a big deal than girls with short hair because our genitals shouldn't dictate what hairdos we have etc.
Are you agreeing or disagreeing?
so I assume he is agreeing with your whole point.
When I had long hair, I'd wear it in a bun, or a ponytail or bunches or whatever I was feeling that day.
Also, I think most people are fairly self-selecting when deciding whether or not to do it, as you rarely see somebody wearing one who isn't carrying off, which is either because- beautiful face and/ or confidence/ couldn't GAF. Which is a great look.
there a re a few guys in my they wear their hair up like this- a ponytail isn't always practical and can actually be a real hindrance if you're using a bar to squat, or doing yoga (downward dog is a pain when your ponytail is flopping over into your face.)
you're welcome x
until someone came in saying anything other than 'they look a bit silly'
'not getting why people care vibe'
but the aggressive manner with which I did so might not be fully indicative of my actual stance. Fancy that!
You should ban them then.
place would be empty
then who would do it?
The wind shall blow my top-knot off
when he was going for a job interview, otherwise i'd be encouraging him to sport one of these < 3
either 1. the man bun wearer is super attractive (more attractive than you) and can pull literally anything off OR 2. they look like an absolute bellend.
...and the world keeps turning.
*returns to the church belfry*
I think carry it off, because, well, *admiration for giving it a try*
(actually I think you're more tright than me on this, not evrynoe does carry it off. let's face it though, most do, and they (boys and girls alike) are generally beautiful.
I don't wear a top know, but I wear a 'just under the crown' knot to work. It's comfy and looks smart and when I unravel it after the office/ gym, it's all long and wavy and cute/sweaty.
maybe london is more optimistic
Get a bit confused at the really small ones/ shaved sides, but fine with a long, thick shiva topknot
Reckon id suit one if i could be bothered to grow my hair out properly. Yeah you heard me, come at me bros
But sometimes I can't deny that they look incredibly sexy.
Serves you right, bun twats.
