We’ve seen many posts, pictures, and videos of the Big Shave West 2 (TBSW2), held at The Old Town Shaving Co. in Pasadena on April 23, 2016 published in social media platforms.

Taking a Fello For a Test Drive

    Ever since I’ve had eye surgery to correct my vision in the late 90s, I always wear sunglasses as soon as I step into daylight, especially while driving.

Etiquette in Social Media Groups, Please: 5 Helpful Questions

  I apologize in advance if this blog post offends anyone; as a Canadian who’s perpetuating a stereotype, I’m apologizing gratuitously! Sowreeeee! Haha. I’ve joined several shaving-related Facebook groups, Google communities, bulletin boards, and a couple of Reddit forums since falling into traditional wet shaving a year and a half ago. Over time, I’ve gravitated […]

My First Year of Traditional Wet Shaving

  After 30 years of shaving with multi-blade disposable razors and canned gel, I took the dive into traditional wet shaving early last April. The impetus?

Inspired by the interview with Mat Marrash on the Moustache & Blade podcast (Episode 41) of January 5, 2015, I took an Instagram picture of the barber shop I loyally frequent, Vinny’s Barber Shop, during my January 15 haircut.
