2014 Badger & Blade Awards - Shaving Brushes Over $150

Hands down, the most iconic shaving brush of all time is the Simpson’s Chubby. Stuffed to the gills with an abundance of hair, with firmly set knots and a squat handle, the Chubby is truly the “British Bulldog” of shaving brushes.

2014 Badger & Blade Awards - Watches

The Sinn U1T is the modern man’s equivalent of a Rolex Submariner. A man’s watch and shoes tell a story in one quick glance. Don’t believe me? What mental picture do you get of a man wearing Alligator loafers and a diamond watch? How about cowboy boots and a solid yellow gold watch/bracelet?

2014 Badger & Blade Awards - Shoes/Boots

For 130 years Alden has finely crafted handmade shoes in New England, leveraging many of the same designs and materials since their humble beginnings. About 20 years after Alden was founded, a small tannery popped up called Horween Leather Company and soon thereafter a partnership was formed with Horween’s Shell Cordovan and Alden’s shoes, which has resulted in some of the finest looking, longest wearing and most comfortable men’s shoes offered in the last century.

2014 Badger & Blade Awards - Shaving Creams

This may not come as a surprise for many, but Cyril R Salter has been making the finest shaving cream on the market for years. With enough protection to handle a multi-pass shave from an unforgiving double edge, but close cutting enough for a clean one pass shave with a straight razor, Salter really does it all.
