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

"That kit is an excellent choice. If it's cheaper there, go with it. For your first batch, just get a style you like and try it out. Don't worry to much about the fine details."

Hello all.  I am planning on doing home beer brewing this fall and was hoping that I could get some advice if anyone has experience.  While I have read on the matter, I am struggling to pick out a starter kit.  Does anyone have any suggestions for starter kits?  Is it better to go with a basic kit or a deluxe kit when starting?  Finally, which company has the best ingredients?-StevanSee More

Within the range of $200 or less2. Preferably brown leather (real leather, not the cheap PU stuff)3. Will hold a roughly 15"…See More
