3 (oz) is the Magic Number

I just got home from a week on the West Coast -- a gear-heavy camping trip that required the checking of significant baggage. Like most frequent travelers, I do everything in my power to avoid the checking of any bags and let go with great resistance when required to send my bags into the belly [...]

Red Cross -- Right On!

There's nothing like a feel-good partnership -- one that makes you grin every time you think about it. This is how we feel about our recent collaboration with the American Red Cross. Over the past year, we've been part of a bunch of exciting ARC blood drive events across the country. We've given away shaving oil and nick [...]

Deep in the Postmillennial He-Man Beard Epoc

Though we may have made it through the thick of the ZZ-top lumberjack look carried by many an urban hipster, beards are still where it's at. We remain deep in "the Postmillennial He-Man Beard Epoch." Yup. Alex Williams of the Times said so last week. And as a denizen of Brooklyn, the heart of bearded trendiness, [...]

Maintain Your Game: Stay Hairy

When it comes to sports, I'm not the savviest, but I don't beat myself up about it. As with most things, I tend to take a somewhat clumsy, but honest approach, admitting my limitations. That said, I HAD NO IDEA that athletes remain hairy during key games as some sort of protective, superstitious device. And as [...]

It's still the same luxurious, super moisturizing stuff, only housed in a slick new tube.I'm feeling this new design -- so are the NYC friends who spotted the tubes on my desk this week (Duane Reade can satisfy your needs NYers!).Sure, the jar was nice, but [...]

Le Barbershop Stages a Comeback

Looks like les hommes of France are experiencing a barbershop revival on their home turf. "The ritual of shaving, once considered an irksome activity, is now becoming a moment of pleasure, especially when men employ the services of the real artists of facial hair: barbers," writes Valérie Leboucq in Les Echos (translated here for your reading [...]

A Shaving Celebration

Judging by the popularity of Movember and other hairy fundraisers, men certainly jump at the chance to let themselves go grow out their beards. I'm digging this beard-shaving celebration in honor of the Jewish holiday Lag B'Omer, described by the minds at Jewcy like this: "If you’ve never heard about Lag B’Omer it’s all about joy. In a [...]
