Sunday, October 21st

Razor: Cadet Mongoose
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: D.R. Harris Marlborough
Scuttle: Bill Bowl
A/S: D.R. Harris Marlborough

The weather turned cooler today with a bit of drizzle in the air which caused a craving for something with a woodsy scent. D .R. Harris Marlborough fit the bill and I enjoyed an excellent shave. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.
