$400 Haircuts and The Important Southern Hair

Manolo says, the Manolo has written the article for the Pajamas Media about the necessity of the $400 haircuts, the article in which he makes mention of the Important Southern Hair. Here is the beginning.

Manolo says, as one of the internet’s foremost authorities on the political coiffure, the Manolo has been asked to opine on the matter of the John Edwards $400 haircuts.

First allow the Manolo to begin with effusive praise for John Edwards’ hair.

This is the beautiful and silkily wonderful hair, the sort of marvelous, bouncy, glossy mop favored by the 1970s pop idol Bobby Sherman. And it is by far and away the John Edwards’ greatest political asset.

“But Manolo,” say the Manolo’s internet friends, “is not $400 very costly for the hair cutting?”

Perhaps many of the Manolo’s internet friends who still go to the Super-Duper Cuts, or the Floyd the Barber, do not know that the truly high quality, super fantastic hair cut now costs at least $100.

You must go read the entire article.

What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…

Reading…

Listening to…

Watching…

The Manolo has been in the Mozart sort of mood.

$32.59!

Manolo says, the Manolo was reading this inspirational article about the man who became the cobbler in middle age, when he came across these most shocking paragraphs.

Last year’s average retail price of a dress shoe — men’s, women’s and children’s — was $32.59, according to the NPD Group Inc., a market research company in Port Washington, N.Y. Dress casual shoes were even cheaper, averaging $30.46 a pair.Cheap and Ugly by Wal-Mart   Manolo Hates!  Do Not Click!

That’s considerably less than the $40 to $45 that most shops charge to put on a set of half soles and heels.

Also, dressier shoes make up a dwindling percentage of footwear sales. Last year, dress and dress casual shoe sales were $10.7 billion, roughly half of what Americans paid for sneakers and other athletic footwear.

The average cost of the dress shoes is $32.59!?! The Manolo does not even pay that little for his socks!

This is the catastrophe!

Millions of the Americans are going about their business terribly, horribly, wickedly ill-shod. It is no wonder so many peoples have the persistent foot problems. If you are putting your foot into the $32.59 dress shoe you are asking for the serious trouble.
