Sounds like you are kind of tired of bracelets at the moment. I vote town and country clip.

She's gonna look great in anything!

Short Miami. She looks great no matter what the cut but I like the way it shows off her shape. Not every dog can carry off that cut.

I love town and country! I think it is a great poodle clip.
I wonder if it is too feminine for my Winston? and not manly enough?
But he's still a baaaaabbbbbyy! Lol.

Seriously, what's a good style for male Standard? that's fairly easy maintenance?

Short Miami is definately easy maintenance. I put my male poodle in that clip (1/4 inch body, left bracelets, tail and head long)

I can see a Miami clip in Winston's future. Fun! ...maybe even a mohawk....

Miami is my vote :-) I really dont like long hair all over the body...it looks great for a day or two then it starts to look worse each day. Its a lot to maintain. I would go with a Miami..This is the same reason I like the CC because I dont brush my girls at all...I just bath them every 5-7 days and condition and blow them dry. Their poms look crappy by that time but the jacket, when long, doesnt require anything. I dont like brushing :-) I let Stella go for 2 weeks soemtimes...then I do have to do one brush out.

Having said this...I am certain she will look GREAT in whatever clip you decide..and as you say you can change it up in a couple of months! Cant wait for the pics.

Well, I decided to have her bracelets trimmed down, but leave her fluffy for a little while longer. She really looks the best in a short 'do, but I like petting her soft hair. Next groom I will bite the bullet and cut her short again. In the mean time, I do have to do a fair amount of brushing.

I will take pictures tomorrow. We're taking the dogs out to Joshua Tree National Park (should be gorgeous out there tomorrow) and bringing the camera.

I was hoping you'd go the fluffy route!

My boy is in a Miami, and looks quite masculine (in my opinion, at least)
