A toupological dossier...



We're in the midst of preparing a new full toupological analysis, but there was something rather immediate we wanted to bring to our readers' attention in the meantime. Esquire magazine has published an article called "William Shatner: The Dossier" (alongside an interview with the actor). It contains the following chart:


The toupological nomenclature is different from ours. Instead of "Jim Kirk lace" we have "early" and instead of "TJ Curly" (Phase I and Phase II) we have "T.J. Hooker" and "Movie Kirk". But the evolution is pretty much all there and we certainly applaud any effort to help disseminate information on the crucially important subject of William Shatner's toupee!

  1. Wow, this is quite a statement from a magazine doing an interview with the Shat. Is this a shanghai akin to "Most Jerk" Kelli?

  2. ShatToup- its quite obvious to me that Esquire is aware of your blog and renamed the styles to avoid a lawsuit. I mean come on, "1975 game show"? A direct reference to the ratty lost years piece AND your numerous posts on Shat's game show appearances. While I also applaud the dissemination of pertinent toupological data, intellectual touparights must be protected! You've spend thousands on a state of the art Toupascope and countless research hours with no credit from Esquire. I'm advising legal counsel.

      @most jerk. Could not agree with you more, all the hard work, of shat toup and the team at shatners toupee is being undermined, this can't go on! The experts here, with all things wiggy, must stand up and new counted, just like bills hair piece on the old series, after he received a good roughing up. After over 3 years of shatners toupee, no so called new kid on the toup, should new allowed to get away with it! Having said the above, the timing and toupees do look about right. The most amazing, thing is that shat allowed the maz to do a hair piece, maybe shatner becoming less, serious about it.

  5. I could not agree with the above posters more; sailing pretty close to the wind here. A few slight changes to avoid prosecution but really! Bloody cheek as we say here in England. You're being very magnanimous. I would boycott Esquire had I ever bouight it! On the plus side, a few more souls may search the net and discover this, the best blog of them all...!

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Esquire clearly worked to curry favor with the Shat by using Shatner-approved nouns, such as "hair," and by making the pieces uniform in color and extent of coverage.

    This artistic interpretation also minimizes the historically accurate, jarring transitions in color, texture and curliness, thereby misrepresenting the academic efforts of WSSTS' to characterize the toupee.

  7. It's interesting that despite that picture, the article never actually mentions words like "toupee" or "bald". An uninitiated reader might thus think that images of Bill Shatner's (real) hairstyles are being depicted.

    That's typical Bill Shatner. One wonders what kind of negotiations went on behind-the-scenes. "Ok, you can run it, but only if..."

    Shattoup, I don't think thay would dare shat would, be on there backs, and for sure, anyone who just casually reads, this article, would just think that shatners had quite a few hairstyles in his time! Mine you, shattoup this still does not answer, the fact that they just showed the hair, not the face as well. That shat is one sly guy. All those little clues his gave us..."do I wear a toupee" "my hair is writing a book it's called captain locks" “how's the hair? Hairs good" and so on. They all add up to absolute nothing! We all know that he wears a toupee, his saying we are deluded...he will just never admit to it.

  9. The Shatner Toupee site is losing itself.Alot of evidence has been gathered to prove Shatner wears a toupee ( i still don't believe he does, how can someone as beautiful as shatner wear a wig???)/

    This site needs a conclusion, a pic of Shat without a wig, or it goes for the juggler and takes of his wig and put the evidence on you tube?

    1. I'm not convinced either but this blog is hilarious! I am still trying to figure out if it's all a big joke or if there's a grain (hair?) Of truth (er...toup?) But yeah I'd also need to see more proof that a virile powerhouse of testosterone such as Shatner, still going strong at 80+ was afflicted with premature baldness! Isn't there some factual basis for the Samson and Delilah myth, I.e. full hair = masculinity ? And this is Captain Fvckin' Kirk here, the epitome of all things manly!
