I use a Gillette fatboy adjustable with Feather blades. You can find the Gillettes on Ebay at decent prices. I've found I like Proraso cream as much as any of the more expensive English ones. My personal preference is to lather on my face with brush as wet as possible. On brushes, don't skimp. Buy the best you can afford.

Anyone have experience with the 341 last? I'm an 11E in the 337, and as I mentioned above will probably order the same in the Brecon. But the 341 isn't quite as elongated as the 337, so I wanted to check on other's experiences with the last.
Chas, did you get the Brecon? Was the 11E a good fit?
Does anyone know what last is used on the C&J Sherwood, a plain toed derby available from Ben Silver? http://www.bensilver.com/fs_storefro...y=3775&group=1

My last Chan arrived with...

None of the California stores? I had assumed it was just San Diego and that Orange County or LA would carry them.
