"I don't know how I feel about the hipster aspect of all of this. When I think of a barbershop I think of manly wall accents, antique equipment and furniture and the services. My guy keeps it very simple. Great conversation, great haircut and a…"

Chuck Knight replied to Jim's discussion What makes the perfect barber shop? in the group The Barbershop
"Sadly, it's not a given. Way too many places are clip joints, or worse yet, unisex salons with a manly barbershop theme. Always build on the basics. A good cut. Good service. And, I wholeheartedly agree, shaving services. There is nothing to…"

"Hey Chuck, I briefly mentioned quality of haircuts only because I consider it a given.  A barber shop must give a good cut. Otherwise, clients wont come back, no matter how cool the shop looks. Ill look up Matt. Thanks"

Chuck Knight replied to Jim's discussion What makes the perfect barber shop? in the group The Barbershop
"I notice you didn't mention the quality of the haircuts. Start with the basics. A barber is rare enough, but a confident and genuinely talented barber is a gift from God. Where are you in SoCal? Are you close enough to go visit Matt at Bolt…"

The idea is for it to be a one stop shop for guys.I'd like to know what you would consider makes the perfect barber shop (other than the…See More

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

CrossFit is one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me.  You will never ever ever get bored doing CrossFit.  You may repeat the same workout once in an entire year.  It stretches you physically and mentally.  It pushes you farther than you ever though you were ever capable.  It has changed my life.  Do it.  Love it.  Live it.
