6'2", 135? That's a little lean and willowy for my taste. And those Med models tend to run a touch too hot for me. Fun for a quick dash, but too much maintenance long term.

I'll take a 5'6", 135 green eyed, red headed, brown/brown, or blue/blonde type with her own membership to a cross-fit gym in place.

Y'all did beat me to that punch though.
Razor: Gillette Flare Tip Superspeed - I have slim adjustables, techs, EJ DE89, but this thing shaves like a dream, I swear I could be in a coma and get BBS with this.
Soap/Cream: Mystic Waters - Sage & Cedar
AS: Toughy here; I'm thinking Clubman, give me a second choice and I'd do Special Reservewith it
All skin and bones no thank you. An additional 25 lbs would be just about right.

I forgot to mention she is an Olympic beach volleyball player and she can wield a Schick adj injector like an artist using Spanish Fig and Nutmeg for soap and has an aura of Bulgarian rose.
Okay, back to the original question:

Razor - Gillette FatBoy
Blade - Feather
Pre-shave - Proraso Pre-shave
Soap - Col. Conk Bay Rum
Cream - TOBS Shaving Shop
Post Shave - Geo F Trumper Sandalwood skin food
AS - "Original" Shulton Old Spice
Cologne - C&E Sandalwood
Brush - Kent BLK 8
Razor: Gillette British NEW Richwood
Blade: Polsilver SI
Soap: Tabac shave stick
Cream: Palmolive
Brush: Rooney Heritage Emillion 2
ASB: Nivea Sensitive
AS / Cologne: None!

Just typing this makes me want to shave. I could do some real damage on a daily basis to my whiskers with this set up. Even so, variety is the spice of life. Monogamy is for marriage, not shaving!
Razor: Gillette fatboy executive
Soap: Panna crema
Brush: the one I have has been amazing, rudy vey custom with a TGN 28mm 2band finest XH (Chubby 2 two band inbound)
Blade: Personna Red
ASB: With what I use above I actually dont need one, the soap actually makes my face feel great. but if I had to pick it would be the Calvin Klein Euphoria aftershave balm....extremely underated.

This is my setup and I think I have found the holy grail for me with this. I have lost all AD since acquiring these items
I guess If I had only one for the rest of my days I would chose a Sheffield 6/8 hollow ground and be forced to get better and throw the DE crutches away.:tongue_sm
