Daniel,

I'm glad I share a brother in arms in the "flip flop" subject. I posted one such discussion a month or so ago, and got utterly lambasted for calling men unmanly for wearing these monstrosities. I agree whole heartedly with you Sir. Flip flops are for the public shower, not the public street.

Used my first straight razor today. It wasn't as bad as everyone had me thinking. Did I cut myself? Sure. But, did I rush to the hospital needing a pint of blood? No.

Beards

So I grew a pretty nice beard last winter, did not shave the face (did shave the neck) from September to March. It was fairly gnarly by March.  Looking for some good direction on opinions.  Style a beard yourself or pay the $5.00 and have a barber do it?  If you style it yourself, where did you learn and what do you use.  I am a bald guy, short, athletic build.  Just want to look nice with a bald head and beard, I know it can be done.  Look forward to your thoughts.  I have attached a picture…See More
