I've decided that my circle of guy friends needs a higher dose of manliness on a somewhat regular basis. I was talking with an aquaintance during a concert recently (yeah, it was that good) and we…Continue
"My friends and I do exactly what you are suggesting.
We like to have a nice bite to eat and a drink or two,
often someone will bring a liquor (or liquer) that is new to everyone.
After eating and a pipe or cigar on the deck we head to…"
"I have, and regularly use both. I use my DEs on weekdays and my straights on the weekend. The straight is capable of giving me a BBS (baby's butt smooth) shave like nothing else can. It just longer to carry out than a DE, which is why I reserve…"
"Matthew, I would suggest joining the forum over at www.straightrazorplace.com and buying one professionally honed by a reputable member. You'll spend about half the cost of the Dovo and probably get a nicer razor. No offense to Mark's…"
"I went through many a tub full of Murray's in my greaser days. The easiest way to get it out is to use dishwashing liquid. Just grab the Palmolive from under the kitchen sink and lather up as if it were shampoo. It might take a few repeats (and…"
"Do you mind sharing what kind of strop you got? Some strops need work while others are ready to go out of the box.
If you have a Russian cowhide strop (has a nappy, rough texture) then you have a lot of work to do in order to smooth the leather so…"
"That is awesome! Congrats on one heck of a first gun! You can't go wrong with a good revolver. Just remember that owning a firearm is a big responsibilty, but I can tell you're already taking it very seriously.
Just out of curiosity, not…"
"I think gentleman's night is a brilliant idea. A friend and I were just talking on a camping trip about how the time spent hanging out with other men has lately become a passive activity, and how we wanted something like a men's night on a…"
"well one got called into work, and the other just forgot...but me and the one other guy who came had some good conversation, we talked about some of jack vettriano's paintings, and some of the stuff that was on the news (we were seated right…"
"My buddy and I had a 'Guy Weekend' this past weekend at his house outside of Philly. Our other friend (my roommate) was supposed to go but backed out. Here's what we did:
- Went to some boxing matches in South Philly Friday night and…"
"I would leave out the laptops. We're plugged in all day every day these days. We need a place to get away from that. Also, the TV's, I would place behind one way glass to hide them and only turn them on during fight night (and only for…"
"The institution of The Man Club at El Cerrito High School came on a cool winter night in 2005. At our friend's annual black-tie cocktail party (we were sophomores and juniors in high school), there were four young men who wanted to watch the…"
"Again: don't buy anything special until you need it. Chances are, the special tools/grooming aids you buy now won't be what you need in two weeks.
If you find your regular comb is not working for your beard, then get something.
"First, don't use product unless it's needed. For example, I suspect you don't need to use a beard oil or groomer until it's longer and needs something. In the meantime, wash your face with something that is OK for face AND hair.…"
