Post: RE: ...time to set the record straight about Gary ...

Does the exchange offer also apply to full caps? The Korean one I got is very sub standard.

Post: Re: New photo sent in from a full cap wearer

Needs enlarging to be able to see properly, but it looks like it may be pretty good. Short styles are not easy to pull off with a full cap.

Ask him if he can guarantee consistency - of densities, bleached knots and durability with knots that are anchored securely into the base and don't unravel when they come into contact with shampoos.

Longer hair styles are much easier to pull off with a fullcap. Yours looks good, the density is right and the colour is nice. Are you going to use your own sideburns or the fullcap's?
