    Pomade as Mustache Wax

    The last few days I have been using Murray's Superior pomade for waxing my mustache. It has been a very good product. The hold is good through the day, and it leaves the mustache looking more natural. Has anyone else tried a pomade for waxing their mustache?

    Could be an old Parker

    I found this at a local antique store for $10. The body looks in good shape, the metal is a little worn. I think the inside (sac) has dried and broken (I can hear small bits rattle). Thinking of sending it out for repair and then using it. I have been using Easterbrooks up to now. From the...

    I have been lurking on the Fragrance sub-forum for some time, wanting to expand into this new A.D. In the past year I have picked up some of the sample selections from Penhaligon’s, and then cologne versions of some of the German and British traditional companies (TOBS, Truefitt & Hill...

    Found This Lather Catcher in Good Shape

    I found this Lather Catcher at an Antique Market the other day. I cleaned it up, and did a little polishing. From looking at some of the sources, the handle looks like it could be from another razor. I am thinking this is from around 1905. Does anyone know any other references to help date...

    Beard conditioner

    Any thoughts on beard conditioners? I see them on the shaving supply sites, and am curious. Are they effective? How do they match up with aftershaves? Are they best applied in the morning, or in the evening?

    A year and a 1000 posts later.

    It has been a little over one year (and just over 1000 posts) since I started shaving with DE (and it turns out, SE) razors. So I thought that it is time to post my “first year” long rambling post:a21:. While looking for information of hats I came across the Art of Manliness...

    Conditioning leather shoes

    Looking at the shoe shine sticky in this forum, they talk about conditioning and feeding the leather. Could neatfoots oil be used on leather shoes for this purpose?

    First use of Arko

    A coworker had spent some time in Turkey, and picked up several items for me, including Arko. I liked the scent, it was similar to ivory but a stronger refreshing scent. I put it into a push up tube. Have used it a couple of times now and happy with the performance. It is very easy to...

    I picked up this ceramic AS bottle at an antique store yesterday. Any idea what time period it was made? I have a glass one from the 1960's, but have never seen the ceramic Seaforth.
