Hello B&Bers!

This Week’s SOTD Theme Week is anything to do with motorized vehicles. We want to see shaving gear that fits the theme or photos of your SOTD that is inspired by the theme.

Post your plum Crazy Purple or Ferrari Red handled shaving brushes, a fragrance you bought at the airport before getting on a flight, aftershaves from Ford, Bentley or Mercedes and so on! Do you have an antique Hot Wheels or Lionel Train collection? We wanna see them incorporated into you SOTD photos.

Heck, we’ll even take a pic of your razor with a photo of Neil Armstrong or Kyle Busch! Signed pic of Steve Martin or John Candy (RIP)… sneaky but acceptable. Even shower curtain rings are on theme (hardcore, but fans of the very funny 1987 John Hughes movie Planes, Trains and Automobiles will get it). 😜

This Weekly Theme is fun and can go in so many directions so let’s see some creative pics and posts. I am looking forward to this theme as I am a big car fan and travel a lot via plane and train.

If you don’t have anything themed, post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us about it.

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

Let’s see the Planes, Trains, Automobiles and similar!

Starting the week off with my Feather AS-D2 with a Feather blade. This is the second shave with this combo. Another nice, smooth, and comfortable shave. Today’s brush is a brush made by Rudy Vey. The brush features the Silvertip D01 knot. This brush is on the stiff side but makes perfect lather. Today is the 233rd shave with the MdC. I continue to scrape the upper sides of the jar to paste some of the soap to fill in the bottom. A BBS shave. Have a wonderful day and week, folks.
