Assuming he keeps his hair slicked down, and not in a pomp or contour... I'd suggest DELUXE Pomade. It leaves the hair with a matte finish, rather then any sheen. Plus, it's not sticky like other pomades, yet still has a decent hold. So I'd see that being a plus for him, since I doub't anyone would like to have a sweat and sticky pomade resin in the lining of his beret. McFarlane: I've heard of Dapper Man and contacted them a few months ago, but they never got back to me. How did get the pomade? Did you order from them or you found it another way? And about how difficult combing through pomade is. Here's a tip. (before it goes on my blog!) USE MULTIPLE COMBS! I have a few big, wide toothed combs that I use. After I put in the pomade, I use the big comb to bring my hair back to the direction I want it. Then use a different comb to style it. It makes a world of difference when you're ripping through your scalp.
