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
"I just picked up my first Parker 45 at the Atlanta Pen Show, and I can't put it down. Buy one now, before the collectors "discover" them, while they're less than half as much as a 51. I like that the 51 is fatter, but other than…"
"Fedoras look good on pretty much everyone. But Dann hit the nail on the head when he said it's all about confidence. You have to wear the hat, the hat can't "wear" you. If you feel odd and awkward, you'll look that way.…"
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.

"Same here. I have to assume it's caused by the afternoon stubble on my neck and like you said, my neck spilling over my collar. I don't know the answer. For important occations I have carefully "shaved" the edge of the tie,…"
"In the "reply" box, there is a row of icons at the top. Click on the icon 2nd from the left, and you get another box. Click on "from a URL", and paste your images address in the top field. If your image is a reasonable size, you…"
"I do think bow ties look better with a DB suit or a suit with a vest. When wearing them with a conventional 2 button or 3 button suit you have got to ensure the shirt is properly ironed. One of my recent shirt purchases, for the life of me always…"
"Hey Adam, to answer your question, I would say yes. Marriage from a Christian understanding isn't just a contract (a business transaction); it's a covenant, an exchange of persons that creates a family bond. Throughout…"
"I've always liked the definition that integrity is a perfect alignment of your values and your actions. There are limitations to that, though. There's the "yeah, but what if you're an asshole?" problem. So,…"
"When I think of integrity, I think of it as maintaining who I am: my morals, my character, my needs, my reputation. Integrity is damaged or lost when I let thinks, situations, or people take me too far from my center in any of those areas."
"What you say is true.... But the other alternatives are even more damaging. Socialist and communist economies concentrate the power even more than capitalism and democracy. What ever system you pick the outcome for the people you describe would be…"
"For me, integrity must bring in some of those intangibles or criteria, or Shane's likability. A steadfast man that everyone hates, will just be true to his ideal without a clue on how he interacts with others, on how he is judged. A man of…"
"Exactly...What does he mean by that. That's been his whole directive to the Senate..."I want it to have heart."His lack of leadership on it, is the main issue, IMO. It's just a grab bag of all this crap that everyone wants, that…"
