Hello B&Bers!

This Week’s SOTD Theme Week is all about Fancy shaving gear!

Show us your favourite fancy shaving gear including expensive soaps, rare razors, your most luxurious brushes, rare/discontinued soaps, special occasion fragrances, etc.

If a shaving item looks fancy, we want to see it regardless of cost. If you are a baller and use a Waterford or Baccarat tumbler as a shaving bowl, we want to see it!Have a gold plated or diamond encrusted razor? Let’s see that too!

If you don’t have anything you would consider fancy, post a pic of your favourite shaving setups. Or post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us all about it. Fancy non-shaving related items incorporated into your pics works as well. A Patek Philippe watch paired with Arko and a Dollarstore razor is indeed acceptable. Let’s see lots of great images this week!

As always, being creative and having fun IS mandatory but sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but very strongly encouraged.

Let’s see your most impressive shaving items!

It was a very enjoyable shave with this blade paired with the razor. So smooth, easy, and efficient. 3passes without any issues for a bbs finish. Marvelous shave!

1.) My “fancy” razor….and one of the most comfortable and efficient I have. The pheasant feather handle transports me back to many an autumn day following my brother’s English setters across Iowa and Kansas.
2.) Such an event calls for an equally fancy soap (as if I need an excuse) - so it’s clearly SV, which lathered up beautifully
3.) Yeah, the Profondo seems a bit of a mismatch, but needed something to jar me back to the present 😀.

A marvelous and squeaky clean and comfortable pair of passes for 9.6 DFS.

Superb shave. Very impressive soap and balm, and it is no faint praise to say that their scents were complementary to that of the Eau de Toilette.
