Quote: Hmmmm.... disturbing yet riveting. I did forget to add two things. 1) After scraping the beard off, splash with cold water before using the aftershave balm -- to close up the pores. 2) If the blade starts to drag on your face, change the blade. I get about 5 shaves from a fresh razor. Six if I shave only once per session/per day. I'm really interested in this "skin food." Can anyone fill me in? Thanks, ROT Here is a link to Trumper's Skin...
I've used several fountain pens extensively, and haven't had a single one leak on me while flying. I use a Waterman Phileas on a daily basis, and recommend it as excellent value for money. I also like the Pelikan Souveran range - have an 800.
Interestingly, I have almost the same feeling as far as jeans are concerned. I would wear khakis around the house and for generally slumming, but I would never ever wear jeans. I have one pair of jeans, which seldom sees any use. My personal dislike for jeans is because of their weight, and the way denim absorbs moisture. I have often gone into paroxysms over people turning up for backcountry trips in jeans...

My favorite clubs in Seattle are Neumos, Graceland, Catwalk, Crocodile, the old Sit-N-Spin and the like. I couldn't tell ya if there was a dress code at the yuppie/burb-herd clubs, because I don't go to them - they bore me. I...
While on the subject of violinists... Although I must say I prefer Heifetz most of the time.

Quote: All the previous tips are good. However, I would bin the shave gel - awful stuff. I use Geo F Trumper products, which I find exceptionally good; similar to Taylor's but I think they have the edge (pun intended.). I used to have terrible trouble shaving, and always ended up with sore skin and cuts. Now I use a badger brush, Trumper's skin food, Trumper's shaving soap (or cream, if travelling), and a Mach 3 razor - I find the Turbo version dreadful, but...
