Sometimes you go to the outdoors, sometimes you bring the outdoors in...

I'll challenge you, Bill, to get some trees in tomorrow!!! Is that a new TI you have there? Don't recall that one, although my memory is suffering in these declining years!

David, this is a new TI. I honed it last night and gave it an inagural run. I figured that a rosewood handle was perfect for an outdoor theme! You want trees? Don't you know I live in an urban jungle?
Absolutely crap shave today because I don't have my straights, nor my brushes here in Uni at the moment... meh.
Nivea Moisturizing goop (rubbish! felt awful and sticky)
Edwin Jagger DE89 with Personna Red
DR Harris Marlborough Aftershave
Only nice part of the shave was the Marlborough. Can't wait to get back home on Wednesday and have a proper shave.
Nope have this week to go, and in fact have some more lectures next week... David you know what I am getting this April, and that should tell you I am wayyy overbudget for a student. I was in Green Park and went through pretty much all the aftershaves from TOBS, GFT, and DR Harris, and decided Marlborough was the one I liked best (although the Bay Rum wasn't half bad). That canned goop was absolutely awful, my razor was pretty much glued to my face it was so stickyYou must have finished Uni by now, Till? You need the Marlborough soap to go with that AS I think! Love the Marlborough soap, not too keen on the AS though, and as for the cologne......

Happy April to everyone! Unfortunately I don't have time to take my items on the deck to get a beautiful background for my SOTD pic. But to replicate it as best as possible, I opened my window shade to show the natural bright sun light shining on the items. Anyways, today's shave was quite excellent and I think I have picked the three SS for my rotation this week. 2 Tallow Based and the other shall be Vegetal. Of course one of them is ARKO! Alright Gents, you all have a great day!
Gents, my little Joey has the fever unfortunately and I probably won't have time this week for outdoor shots.
Here is my daily shave:
Simpson Classic 2 Best
Proraso Red Sandalwood Oil & Shea Butter
Merkur 1904 42C
Floid Mentolado Suave
The newest Proraso Red is a terrific performer indeed!
I am sure I speak for everybody else here also, Marco, when I wish Joey a speedy recovery.
Sun, glorious sun! Your usual standard of excellence here, Balaji!
