Hi James liked some of your posts so far.   Hope you are doing well and your family too.   I have a 5 month old grand son and  a 5 year old grand daughter.  I am sure you are a great dad.   I am a wonderful grandpa.  You have a great day.

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
