Not my shaving gear, but I liked the photograph just the same. Truthfully, straight razors are a bit scary for yours truly (I'll stick to my Gillette Atra razor and blades, thank you). It must be due to the old Brian De Palma film, starring Sir Michael Caine and Angie Dickenson Dressed to Kill (1980), but I do use a shaving mug and brush quite happily.
Nothing quite like a shower, shave, clean clothes, and a good, strong side part in your hair. The final week of our Christmas break, and the new semester begins on Monday the 11th. Unusually, I have managed to get lots of little things accomplished, and it is just 11:57am. Not even lunch time. Amazing what you can accomplish when left alone for a few hours and able to focus your mental energies. Ahhhhhh. Even if I accomplish nothing else, it has already been a good day. Men, let's march into the new year with purpose, drive, and greater elegance and everyday style!
