Friday, February 4th:

Razor: Mergress
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Simpson Douglas
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Yardley Soap (Thanks Diggity)
A/S: Acqua Di Parma

I have been on a vintage soap kick lately and received both the Yardly Black Label and the regular Yardly shave soaps this week. I used the regular Yardly today and was amazed at how vibrant the scent still is after nearly 40 years. I enjoyed an excellent shave and can see why this soap is sought after; it is nice stuff indeed. A splash of Acqua Di Parma Colonia and I am on my way. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

*Thanks to Martin for this. A great cream - I gather most think this is Trumper's formula, and I agree; it lathers and shaves identically to my GFT cream, which is to say great. The scent is phenomenal: gentlemanly, timeless, rich. Sadly, my skin doesn't like it. I will be buying the cologne, though.

**Thanks to Martin for this, too. I have had one as my daily shaver for a while now, but this is a new addition to the den. A pristine specimen with an intact case. Magnificent shaver and with much better aesthetics than the one I've been using.

By the way, the Savile Row continues to impress.
