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"

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

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.
