Hitler didn't comb over! he was getting bald I think but didn't had to comb over, he used the hair style since he was quite young, even been strange to think someone would use that hair style purely for option (...meh) i don't think it's a comb over.
For obvious reasons, a comb over is called a "barcode" (バーコード) in Japan. Hehehe.
- why am I seeing all these "in japan" type blurbs on so many wikipedia articles these days? It's not even applicable or appropriate except seemingly to satiate some japan-o-file's need to bring up japan at any opportune moment. Do we have a blurb about what the style is called in Hungary? Mozambique? Tunisia? France? No, thus it's not pertinent to spend almost 1/4 of the articles length on it's namesake in some country X unless country X is pertinent to the article (no more the case for japan than any other non-western country).
This is merely the culmination of a growing trend I tire of.18.104.22.168 (talk) 02:33, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
12/06 DONALD TRUMP is not my favorite person on Earth, but I don't think he has a comb over. He has funky hair, but it is not a comb over. This article says that he has the best example of one. It may even be a hair piece or transplant, but not a comb over. On Larry King, Larry pulled on Trumps hair in the front. My wife's friend stated that she went to high school with him and that his hair was even like that then.
Using Carl Levin's photo for the comb-over article violates WP:BLP by mocking a living person in this hairstyle article. The patent photograph illustrates the hairstyle, without offending any living person. Please do not revert it. Abe Froman 16:56, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
Ahh, but you are assumming that a comb over is a bad thing when you refered to Carl Levin. Obviously he knows he has a comb over. So why can't there be a picture of a living person?
Original Research and Unverifiable
The statement "In the UK, the two most famous wearers are, without doubt, ..." is not verifiable by the references provided. The references provided do show that the two people are known for their comb-overs, but they do not prove that they are the two most famous wearers. To make that claim, we would be introducing an "analysis or synthesis of established facts, ideas, opinions, or arguments in a way that builds a particular case favored by the editor, without attributing that analysis or synthesis to a reputable source". This would be in violation of Wikipedia:No original research. The sources don't say that they are the most famous wearers, we are making a jump to something more than is said in any of the sources. The phrase "without doubt" is certainly incorrect, since I doubt the statement. I will therefore remove this statement. Sancho McCann 02:48, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
