Re: Taylor’s shaving shop cologne

It is indeed discontinued. I have searched for and not found a really spot-on replacement. Terre d'Hermes is earthier; Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte is close in its topnotes, albeit more complex and much more expensive. Harris Windsor, more or less a Terre d'Hermes clone, is actually not as earthy as Td...

Re: What are you reading?

Rereading Nobody Knows My Name by James Baldwin, an excellent collection of essays.

Reading Who Ate the First Oyster? for some light fun pop history.

Reading Zora Neale Hurston's short stories in search of some to use with my students.

Re: Face masks

I'm sorry you feel so persecuted, Gary. This thread had run its course before the Hong Kong analogy, so if you're "puzzled by the hysterics," you're either being obtuse or you just want to post things to blow off steam without a response. That's what social media is for. This is a forum where others...

Re: Face masks

Bryan, I'm with you, but sticking it to the evil big government seems preferable to concern for others in me-first America. Covid-19 is real, masks actually help protect those around you, and not wearing one is no great demonstration of liberty but rather a perfect embodiment of me-first ideology. ...

Re: A Hairy Situation!

I don't really have a preference based on hair description; what moves me is the feel on the face. A thin brush with a loose knot is too soft on the face - it's a painter, and it surprises me how well some of them make lather (A bit like Dr Johnson: " It is not done well; but you are surprised to f...

Re: A Hairy Situation!

Chris, they all look wonderful. The Harris brushes are shaped like some of the early 2000s Rooney supers, handle-wise. T&H had some rebranded Rooney Supers in that day, too, and up until about 2012-2013 IIRC. Excellent brushes, those T&H and Rooney examples I have used. I sold a Rooney 1/2 rebranded...
