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

"It really depends on where you're getting your kit from. Some starter kits are more on the same level as deluxe kits from other retailers. Can you see yourself going all-grain in the near future? If so, pick out items that can handle a larger…"
