June 2022 Gentlemanly Restraint Until Month End (GRUME)

Still in. Today’s shave.
SOTD #22

Mid-morning shave this morning. Things are starting to heat up nicely outside.
Decided to change things a bit and go purely boar - Love the contrast between this bristle and misturas.
Tomorrow's shave just may include a Connaught Omega Jade, though I don't have a coffee mug to complement ...
