Middle-aged men with ponytails

Seriously, why do you do it? There's half a dozen here at work and it looks truly and utterly ridiculous.
Is it simply to disguise that old friend the Mullet you can't bring yourself to have cut off?

I like the variant with bold on the top and a pony tail of the leftovers.

See it on the positive side: this environment will make you look better!

Re: Middle-aged men with ponytails

I think my judgment of this is clouded by living in Daytona Beach for faaaaaaaar too long... I LIKE guys with ponytails, regardless of age.

Of course, this depends upon the rest of the package though. Some guy looking all "preppy" but with a ponytail looks funny but if he seriously looks like he could hop on a Harley (or seems the type to participate in medieval reenactments), it's just fine.

Well, I was going to say "it all depends" but that person/guy is totally disgusting so I am going with "no, it looks crap"

Re: Middle-aged men with ponytails

Never mind that, how many men in Switzerland have a pony tail AND earings..

yes earings.. i've seen men with not only one but 2 earings .. wtf..

If this is a part of the test in how to get a C permit, them i'm out.. no way i will grow a pony tail and pierce my ears

Re: Middle-aged men with ponytails

I second Little Helper, only Captain Jack Sparrow looks good with a pony tail. I just can't imagine the bathroom routine - faffing about with conditioner and then combing through any knots...it's just not manly is it?!

You need to go around the office with a pair of scissors & clean house.
