I found no thread on this after some rather extensive searching, so I am creating my own. If such a thread as this already exists, then I apologise... A very impressive, very useful and at times,…Continue

Hi everyone. I really should stop joining forums. I have joined far too many in the past. But they're all so interesting. Damnation! Where to begin...? I'm a 23-year-old university student studying a…Continue

Shahan replied to Josh's discussion Need some advice for accessories for a suit!
"Wear what you like. there's no reason why you shouldn't wear a tie-clip. If you want to wear it, then wear it. Part of dressing is having the balls to wear whatever the hell you want. "

Shahan replied to Jay's discussion Manly Things (no duplicates, please)
"181. Out of curiosity, what would be considered "Heavy"? I'm not above carrying stuff for ladies. But only when it's really necessary. I helped a lady-cousin of mine haul two 80lb suitcases up...and then down...three flights of…"

Shahan replied to Jay's discussion Manly Things (no duplicates, please)
"327 - "Not needing directions".  Everyone needs directions. What's manly is not having to ask. Every man should know how to read a map and navigate. If I didn't follow my parents on holidays, they would never have come back…"

Shahan replied to Victor Franklin's discussion Cut myself while shaving, again.
"Is your blade sharp enough? If you're shaving with a blunt razor, you're liable to cut yourself from exerting too much pressure on a razor that can't do the job you want anyway, because it's not sharp enough. And when that…"

Shahan replied to Chu Kim's discussion In the Name of Efficiency
"I hate being late to anything. It's a holdover habit/trait from my days in school. To speed stuff up, I generally... - Pick out my outfit the night before, if possible. And lay it on my clothes-valet.  - Shave the night before (if…"

Shahan replied to Walt Morgan's discussion Turning 21
"Be wary of anything that doesn't look 'right' and don't take drinks from strangers. And check out a bar's history first. And if you're drinking overseas, this is even more important.  My brother was in China and…"

Shahan replied to Connor Wallace's discussion How do you handle being ill?
"My dad is somewhat notorious for taking the "Fuck it, I'm breathing" route. The last time he did that, he was in bed for over a month with a throat-infection. Not a smart move.  Myself, if I'm sick, I'm sick. I take…"

Shahan replied to Sam I.'s discussion Ressurecting the Duel?
"Duels were never legal. Not in the 'States, not in England, not in Europe.  That didn't stop people from doing them. In fact people were duelling so much in the 1700s that the Irish wrote the world's first codebook on duelling…"

Shahan replied to Hyrum Higgins's discussion Switching to a Safety Razor
"Most vintage razors from major manufacturers (Merkur, Gilette, etc) are highly regarded. I doubt you could go wrong with any one of them. The important thing is how well it works and how much attention you give to cleaning the razor after…"

Shahan replied to Hyrum Higgins's discussion Switching to a Safety Razor
"To Mantic, "Some" translates as a few dozen. You're in good hands, Hyrum. The Shaving Guru has found your thread. "
Mar 11, 2013
Shahan replied to Hyrum Higgins's discussion Switching to a Safety Razor
"Hi Hyrum,  Actual razors themselves can be dirt-cheap. You can find scores of them at flea-markets if you look long enough. $30.00 for a second-hand razor seems entirely possible. But be sure that you CLEAN the razor THOROUGHLY before you use…"

Shahan replied to Brian Splash's discussion When teens go bad
"Congratulations on the baby (boy or a girl?).  I agree with the others that a sort of 'peaceful intervention' may be a nice median here. Get to know the boy, spend some time with him if you can. Don't patronise him. "When I…"

Shahan replied to Hyrum Higgins's discussion On the wearing of hats
"Corey, I confess that some of your advice actually made me laugh. But it's good advice. Very good. But you write it very well.  "

Shahan replied to Hyrum Higgins's discussion On the wearing of hats
"Wear a hat whenever you want or need to. What TYPE of hat you wear, is up to you.  Under all circumstances, a hat stays on the head, unless a place has been provided for you to hang it/place it. Or if someone asks you to remove it (eg:…"

"I'm just not seeing the benefit. 800k new insurance sign ups, and $1 trillion spent. Then people like Steve are still uninsured. So what's the point exactly? To spend a shot load of money to say, "oh we tried"?"
