    Department Store Spray and Run

    I just doused myself in Polo Green from a sample bottle and sprayed my hand with Joop! just for the heck of it. It reminded me of my high school days in the late 90's. Anybody else every take a quick bath from a store sample bottle?

    Cowboy Boot AD - How many pairs do you own?

    I'm a native New Yorker living out west for the past five years and finally started my cowboy boot collection. So far I have two pairs, but see myself adding a few more. I usually wear them as much as possible and have my eye on a pair of elephants from Anderson Bean. How many pairs do you...

    Personna Israeli Red / Gillette Tech - Way too mild

    Shaved with my Tech and an Israeli Red with two days growth. It was so mild that it wasn't even funny. I'm still new to DE, but this combo was an insult. With that being said, I still managed to get a few weepers by overcompensating for the mildness with pressure. Overall, I still got a...

    DE 89, Tech or Senator for a New Guy?

    I've been wet-shaving for a month and DE shaving for about two weeks. Should I start a rotation or perfect one razor at a time? I have an EJ DE89, two Techs and a Senator open comb. They all give me good shaves, but I haven't perfected a three pass shave yet. I stick with WTG/XTG so far...

    Ever Ready 200T - how do I restore?

    Hey, fellas... This brush came with an Old Spice mug that I found at an antique store a few weeks ago. It's an Ever-Ready 200T. I skimmed through another thread and saw guys restoring them, but I have no clue where to start. I tried pulling the knot out of the handle to no avail. I...

    Newbie found a vintage Gillette - what now?

    Hey, guys... I just found this Gillette at a local antique shop for $12.00. Can somebody help identify it and tell me how to get it shave-ready? There is a little bit of green oxidation and soap scum, but really no rust. Also, the head looks a little bent - not too bad, though.

    Cheap Splashes are for Real Men

    My first cologne was Polo Green followed by Polo Sport, Nautica, Cool Water, Dolce & Gabana, etc. Being from NYC and embracing the Guido culture, I used about twenty sprays before leaving the house. That was high school into my early to mid twenties, then I got into "Body spray". Up until...

    From VDH to Arko in 3 weeks

    Hey, guys. I was tired of shaving and getting nicked up twice a week using cartridges and canned junk, so I went to the drugstore and grabbed a VDH kit for $10. After watching on youtube how to use it, I gave it a shot. It was fun and I got a better shave than what I was getting, then I...
