It’s the curse of the hipster era that, at least once in their lives, every man will succumb to the temptation of long hair.
The latest gent to join the fallen is Matt Damon, who has debuted the trendy man bun look at a press conference in Beijing.
Unsurprisingly, the 44-year-old’s hairdo has set the internet on fire, with many deciding he’s actually “way hotter” now than he was before.
Damon’s look raises an interesting question: how old is too old for a man bun?
Based on Hollywood’s passionate adoption of the trend over the last five years, you’re never too old for a new look. Here’s a definitive breakdown of the man bun demographic:
This means – drum roll please – the average age for man buns is…
Go forth and grow, good sirs.
Wimbledon turns a blind eye
This week, Wimbledon was rocked by a rogue undergarment.
During her first-round loss to China’s Ying-Ying Duan, Eugenie Bouchard was questioned about her choice of bra.
The tournament has a notoriously strict dress code which specifies all-white clothing and Bouchard’s barely-visible black bra did not fit the bill.
Chair umpire Louise Engzell spotted the infraction and then called a tournament referee, who reprimanded Bouchard on the court but, thankfully, didn’t give her an official sanction.
Interestingly, when Australia’s Bernard Tomic hit the court later that day officials were seemingly unperturbed by his dark-coloured undergarments.
Tomic’s jocks were visible underneath his white shorts, breaking the rule that “any undergarments that either are or can be visible during play (including due to perspiration) must also be completely white except for a single trim of colour no wider than one centimetre (10mm)”.
A few social media users noticed the double standard, wondering why officials didn’t call Tomic on the error.
Tomic may have gotten away with it scot-free, but Bouchards bra blue made headlines around the world.
In defence of the 21-year-old Canadian player, several other players came out and labelled the dress code “excessive”.
“I think it’s gotten a little excessive,” American player Bethanie Mattek-Sands said.
“I feel it’s actually gotten stricter. You can’t even wear off-white or cream. I was like, man, if you wash your whites too many times, they will be illegal.”
Caroline Wozniacki said the idea officials could soon be checking underwear was “pretty creepy”.
“Usually I don’t wear coloured underwear whenever you have white underneath. You can see through,” Wozniacki said.
“I don’t think anyone is like showing off their underwear like that and getting it checked.”
Vogue gives Elaine from ‘Seinfeld’ a makeover
When Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David wrote the character of Elaine Benes on Seinfeld, they probably didn’t anticipate that 26 years later she’d be considered a style icon.
American Vogue has taken a stab at bringing Elaine’s signature look into the current day and, well, not much has changed.
Model Andreea Diaconu rocked Elaine’s signature shoulder pads, socks and dorky glasses in an animated photo shoot captured in an exact replica of Jerry’s apartment.
The nostalgia is suffocating.
