I prefer dark colors. I think a black leather jacket or sport coat looks great with a shaved head 😄😄

same olf stuff, nothing changed, except my way of thinking (which got way better)
be who you are, say what you feel, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter

Hmmmmmm! I strongly agree.
Black leather jacket, black/dark grey sweater and black jeans/military style BDU trousers - the perfect choice for a bald guy (and, of course, for anyone else.)

My three pence worth...

It shouldn't really affect anything... being bald rocks!

But I look at myself differently now, maybe with more self respect, so I do tend to dress a little differently (heck, I've even lost a bit of weight!) ... I dress a little better, get myself nice clothes... I figure that now the head looks good, I might as well try and bring the rest up to scratch! (Hope that doesn't sound to concieted... it's really not meant that way, it's more that I spent years sporting a dodgy hair style, and now that I have a cool new look...)

Black is the way forward! :) From my old bike leather to my sunday best suit! Black always looks good...

Oh, yeah. Black is neutral enough: it might be elegant, or casual, or minimalistic... it depends on your sense of style - and of course, the occasion.

Over the last seven months, I've switched to darker clothes (black, dark grey, dark brown shirts and sweaters). The contrast with the dome looks good.

May be slightly off topic, but how about one (or two) stud earrings? Or maybe a hoop in the left ear only a la Mr. Clean? I think it looks pretty cool; it's something I may try later (I'm still part time military right now)

Most of the things in my wardrobe are the same from the pre-sly era. I've only got rid of the extremely bright colours (electric blue, bright yellow, ...) and I've adapted a black-and-white approach. Jeans, white t-shirt (often with a print), black blazer and a bald head is a great combo. Or to look less 'dressed up', I switch the blazer for a classic Adidas sportsvest.

Where I've used my clothing to stand out in the past, I now have a shaved head. Seeing people's reactions is amazing, especially when I've taken my time to look my best. You enter a room and people start staring, and in their eyes I can read "OMG, he's bald! But... it doesn't look bad!" Since shaving my head I don't GET attention anymore, I CLAIM attention.

@sirharry12: I think studs, hoops and piercings in general look great on sly people (it's like decorating a blank room), but I also feel we have to pay more attention to balancing out everything. We don't have the hair to 'soften' our appearance anymore. It's like: BAM, here's my face. So facial piercings that are too big, or too many piercings on one side, or just too many piercings in general will throw our face out of balance more easily IMO.

 As long as the piercings are confined to the ears and done in moderation, I think is fine, however, I'm not going to knock those who want to go overboard with it, I think it should be up to each individual.

I've had both my ears pierced for ages so my ears, square diamonds.

hear latley i've loved the dress shirt/tie type deal. or khaki pants. It's a classier look IMO. I used to dress baggy clothes, kinda ruff, but I like to look professional now. if i could only coordinate the sweater vest and button ups like some older guys  O0 O0 O0 O0 O0
