A bit strange

Feel free to post anything unrelated to wet shaving or men's grooming (I.e. cars, watches, pens, leather goods. You know, the finer things of life).

A bit strange

Post by fallingwickets » Sun Jun 10, 2012 9:09 am

File under: Becks induced imagination

New York magazine always has half decent gift shopping sections and this week they have a done one relating to fathers day. :
http://nymag.com/shopamatic/products/fathersdays12/

On the plus side, two shave related items:
A. trumpers sandalwood cream and;
B. here's the strange part.....A De by baxter of California
http://nymag.com/search/search.cgi?t=sh ... rt_price|0

Out of all the DE's one can buy, one wonders why list a baxter? Has anyone here at msf even used one?

Ok, back to my becks

:lol:

I've never yet seen a recommended list in print or online where I would take up any of their suggestions. Who are these people?

Doubt whether anyone at My Shaved Face has. Clive, it's a little early here on the Left Coast, but I think I'll join you. 8)

I didn't spend a whole lot of time reading about the list.

Maybe they bought their way onto it?

whatever the reason, nice to see some traditional shaving tools on a modern gift list!

I kinda like the idea of the slingshot. 8)

But you might put someone's eye out with it.

The pessimist me says these lists are always made up by the sponsors, not actually what is good.
