Here is a source I have bought several bow ties from. They have a huge number of choices, periodic sales, and sometimes pre-packs with 3 or 4 ties sold together, a great way to build your collection.

I have no affiliation.

Re: We are the other 1%

I just saw P&Gs latest Gillette advert. 3 anorexic ? shave and then flounce like a gay Soho london hairdresser to the admiring glances of women. They collectively look like the Guy Fawkes masks from the movie V for Vendetta taken by up the Occupy Wallstreet movement. Barney Fife could kick their co...

The best comment on the politicians from this movement was the sign "I can't afford a Congressman so I made this sign" Personally, I hope for some very positive outcomes from the OWS movement. First, getting rid of our obstructionist politicians. Second, getting rid of our corrupt politicians, (see ...

KAV, when I was a traveling man, I just used a VDH boar, my go to cologne, and VDH soap since it was convenient. I just shook the brush well, tossed it into the Dopp kit and hit the road. Of course, such a mundane kit would not do justice to the Orient Express or the redhead, but wouldn't reduce the...

She could play Carole King in the Carole King Story -- if Hollywood ever decided to do such a venture. Not sure what her singing voice would be like, though. I enjoyed Remington Steele -- the chemistry was good between the two of them, even if the story lines were a bit lacking. Actually, Carole Ki...

If for no other reason than that Williams is (A) Available everywhere, (B) Only costs $.99-$1.59, everyone should try it and draw their own conclusion. If you cannot use it as a shave soap you can always use it up as hand soap.
For myself, it is my go-to soap.

I got some while they had $3.00 register rewards, had a $1.00 coupon. They paid me a penny to try it!

I's ok, not a great balm, not a great a/s, but for a penny, what the heck.

I would not buy it again, even at half the regular price.

Viking funeral in the PRC? Never do, unburned hydrocarbon you know. That and the creation of a navigation hazard from the hulk of the long-ship.

It is sad, but many states no longer have barber schools. Training is now done with "stylists". No barber means no tapering comb etc. and a poor haircut. Maybe the popularity of "Mad Men" will bring some of these skills back. In the mean time, try to find a European trained barber.
