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. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop. See More
"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,…"

"I can second most of this but whish to make out that there is no need to be "nice" whatsoever with women, being confident is key in my experience, being nice or not so nice does not make much difference.
I've had very good female…"
"Everybody's known this. That is the point of the unbound delegate. They aren't bound to any candidate until they cast the first ballot at the convention.
If Trump doesn't have the delegates going into the convention,…"
"Hartmann has made good bags for decades. Might be hard to find one for $50 though.
Generally - look for top grain, not split grain leather - the thicker the better. Sometimes you can find "belting" leather - that is great. "
I'm looking to buy a used leather briefcase and/or messenger bag for college. Probably won't buy until later in the summer, but I'm trying to get some research in. Does anyone have any vintage or modern brands to recommend? Right now I'm looking at something along these lines. Hoping to keep it under $50.See More
"Even in high school I liked to throw on a vest or sports coat. Kudos to you for dressing sharp. Only thing I would say is maybe mix up with some other colors, gray on gray might get old. I like muted, earthy colors--pale or dark blue, dark red,…"
