Next year shows a return to sophistication and adulthood, and a different quality of manliness than other eras - one that incorporates a degree of softness, and style-savvy that doesn't require hours of standing in front of the mirror with a tub of wax to get that lock of hair to drape just just just juuuuuust right.

This next look probably already has a name, but I'm going to call it the Don Draper because it's reminiscent of the same left-hand part and shellacked look worn by Mad Men's leading man. It's a look we've seen before in decades past, but this variety is softer and looser than its predecessors. It's a grown-up look that goes perfectly with a suit, or even just a plaid or checked shirt with rolled-up sleeves and a tie. This cut has just the right degree of retro chic. It's also easier to style than it looks - just apply gel and comb into place. Don't worry about getting it perfectly even - a little bit of texture is sexy.
