Re: Does anyone wear briefs anymore...

Yep, I hate tight underwear. They have to be 'breathable', comfortable and 100% cotton.
Like the good Doctor says, at our age it's more about comfort than trying to look like an 18 year old with speedos. :lol:

Re: Lather hog

Gary, since I started collecting synthetic brushes, I haven't looked back at my badgers.
I find synthetics to be more softer on the face as well as maintaining very good backbone.
They also don't 'hog' the lather like badgers do.

Re: Does anyone wear briefs anymore...

It's getting tougher to find 100% cotton boxers. Now they add some kind of spandex to make them stretchy........... :roll:

Re: Taylor Old Bond Street Avocado Cream gone hard.

I would just use it like a shave soap. It should still lather okay, not 100% like a newer cream though.
When I find creams that have dried up too much, I use them as bath soaps.
Works great and gives you a reason to get another tub of that cream. :lol:

Re: A Blast From The Past

I remember buying some pots way back as well. I loved this cream very much but hung on to some for way too long.
I had to chuck them out as they were harder than granite. :lol: :lol:

Re: Muhle R41 vs Merkur Futur

For me the Futur gives the smoother shave, with less irritation than the R41(newer 2013 version).
The older R41 is a real shark of a razor and I rarely use it. It is scary if you're not careful and can take chunks off. :lol:

Re: RazoRock XXX

Many thanks Clive, I still visit often, but don't post as much as I used to.
As long as some of us old-timers are still around, it's always a pleasure to 'see' everyone here. :D :D :D

Re: RazoRock XXX

the problem with the original xxx made famous around here by the long lost member fisherc, is that it set such a high bar, razorock was never able to reach it again clive Clive, that's my sentiment as well. I still have a tub or two of the original as well as a few of the second formula. I also hav...

Re: Ming Shi Shaver 2000S, blades and Razorock brush

Sam, I have that exact same brush. I'm just wondering why you don't like it anymore.
I love the feel of the bristle and the size is just right. Very similar to the Emillion everyone was raving about years back.

I'm also waiting on some reviews before I spring for the soap and cream. Knowing Taylor's I don't think one would be disappointed.

Re: Ming Shi 2000s Merkur Futur clone

I'm wondering if the knock-off folks are able to clone the Progress any time soon. I've found that one to be a good adjustable performer. Have a search for the Parker Variant Adjustable Safety Razor. I have one and it's pretty comparable to the long handled Progress. It's all metal, including the t...

Re: What soaps are still good?

I've used up a few lousy lathering soaps in the shower as bath soaps.
Better than throwing them out. It lessens the disappointment a bit I guess.

Re: Operating system

Upgrade to Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate. Very similar to Vista and a lot less telemetry sending back info to Microsoft.
I plan on sticking to 7 as long as I can. People are still using XP which is not supported any more but a lot lighter and easier to use in my opinion than Windows 8.1 or 10.
