"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…"

What makes the perfect barber shop?

Hi guys,I'm considering opening a barber shop with my nephew and am trying to create the perfect gentleman's retreat.  I want it to be more than just a barber shop.  I want it to be a place where guys go to hang out and be guys.  I'd love for a guy to say he's getting his hair cut at my place and his buddies want to tag along to hang out while he gets his cut. 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

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.

Saxon replied to Matthew Perry's discussion Where to start a collection? in the group Fountain Pens
"Having tried out a few hundred fountain pens, I was left unimpressed by MontBlanc. They are simply not writing tools, but rather fashion accessories that look better in your shirt pocket than in your hand. "
