He is on the profile.

We have no idea what to do with his hair. Can someone suggest a hair style please?
He wears Hoodies, tshirts, Converse trainers and baggy trousers [he has to as his thighs are huge due to cycling].

Any clothes suggestions would be appreciated too.

He is having the post baby style meltdown so many of us women have! His hair has gone suddenly thin and gray and receeding and he looks too old for his clothes all of a sudden.

He has a lovely face, but we need inspiration!

Have no idea what to do with hair - take him to a local trendy hair place and let them at it. grin Buy if its thin and receding the normal advice is to shave it off isnt it?

The best baggy jeans for men I have found are either the Uniqlo selvedge things or the Topman twisted - both are cut in a really modern way and come in dark blue which looks much more current - even if it isnt really.

Uniqlo is generally very good for men's clothes - espeically their Manga inspired t-shirts which they do every so often.

Oooo thank you!

He looks like a jellybaby with a shaved head. Its very funny. He has no chin/jaw at all. Giggling at the thought in fact.

I don't thin his legs would fit the topshop ones - from the look of them. We'll give them a try though.

Its the hair.

PMSL @ the statement hat!

THe hair has to go. Honestly a close-ish crop is a better look than thinning thatch (an he can always grow it back if not) <strokes DH's smooth pate>
