My name is Tom Kenyon. I'm a 52 year old husband, (28 years, all to the same girl) and father of 3, ages 27, 20, and 6 (proving that God has a sense of humor). This is going to sound odd, but I'm…Continue
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
