Shaving supplies in Mexico

It looks like I will be moving to Mexico very shortly. I was wondering if anyone out there might be able to give me any tips on procuring quality shaving goods. Specifically, I'll be in Mazatlan. I've started doing some searches online, but so far I am striking out. I'm hoping I won't be reduced to ...

Just thought I'd post an update for anyone in the US considering ordering from Toronto Barber Supply. I placed an order for a tub of Fraser's on Wednesday, August 16. My card was charged $22.24US on August 21, followed by a $0.22US International Service fee from my bank. I received the Fraser's on W...

The new brush arrived Wednesday after a slight delay waiting for clearance from Customs. I am absolutely thrilled. This brush is a huge improvement over the $5 no name brush I had been using. I finally understand what everyone means when they talk about their brushes holding enough lather for more t...

Took the plunge and ordered a Shavemac

After much debate over the way too many options available I decided on a Shavemac and placed an order yesterday for this brush. One of the reasons I settled on Shavemac was all the great things I'd heard about the service they provide and their focus on customer satisfaction. So far I'm not disappoi...

Will was kind enough to pass a sample of Fraser's along to me. I'm definitely a fan! I've been using it for close to a week now. I'm very new to wetshaving and it has been trickier for me to get the water ratio right with this than other creams (in fact I feel like I have yet to add enough water). E...

Besides splashing hot water on your face what other prep do you do? Hot towels?? pre shave cream??? This is mostly done to soften the beard. It helps me quite a bit. Nordstrom, Saks 5thAve and Art of Shaving stores are located in Dallas in case you need to get high end products like T&H and Castle ...

Charles, A '55 Aristocrat? Would you consider posting a picture or two? I'd like to see how the vertical bar inside the silo doors is notched. --Glenn I got a few quick pictures that I think show what you're looking for. http://upload4.postimage.org/851356/p1010001.jpg http://upload4.postimage.org/...

First couple of shaves with a DE

After spending some time reading these forums I decided to give wetshaving a try. I ordered a 55 Aristocrat from Golfhacker, a sample pack of blades from letterk and wenestvedt was kind enough to send me a sample of Fraser's shaving cream since I mentioned that I was interested in trying it. I also ...

Thanks everyone for the great replies. The board has been a tons of help. I've been trolling the Sale/Trade section and I think I've just about settled on my first razor. (Did I say first? Hmm, almost sounds like I'm already planning on more than one- man this is a dangerous hobby).

Hi, I've been lurking on the board for some time now, but this is my first post. I'm 31 years old and new to wetshaving. For years I used a Mach 3, then finally switched to an electric as the Mach 3 was pretty unbearable. I found your site and have been becoming more and more interested in trying we...
