men's fade haircut inspirationI’ve always been a gentleman of routine and never more so than when it comes to my hairstyle.

Maybe it’s because New York City gets so damn cold?! Either way, I love them. I tend to always wear cashmere turtlenecks because they are worn around the sensitive neck area.
