I've found Matthew Butterick's advice invaluable, in book form (written more for those in the legal field) and through his website (more generally applicable). I especially appreciate the thoughtful reasoning behind his positions. Although he has strong views about several of the topics that...
I use the left inside pocket, except for jackets with a dedicated pen pocket, which I've never seen anywhere other than inside the left breast. If a leak concerns you, that seems like a job for a pocket protector. I don't wear one in a shirt pocket, nor do I keep a pen there, but hidden inside a...
I recently got the Cypress & Vetyver and put some of it from the big pouch into a 1.25 GoToob that I had lying around. Works great—I have great control over how much I’m using. Better than the metal tubes of the regular Proraso.

I'm a CT loyalist, for more than a decade now. I generally buy the non-iron because they don't have that plasticky feel that some cheap non-iron shirts have. The regular fabric shirts are great as well, IMO. I have a spray bottle that I keep filled with water, and I soak the shirts pretty...
