The more I read the more I'm pleased with the great advice on the site, but one thing I'm finding odd is the whole talk of "city" or "town" wear. Tradition can be great, but do we need to be locked into a 1940s script? And does anyone else find some of his pronouncements a little fusty? chorse123, I'm curious what you tend to disagree with.
Adding to RSS now. Thanks for the pointer.
Mostly the benefit is relaxation. Though steam rooms do wonders for my skin - so I'd recommend for the skin care effects alone.
To be honest, either shorter or longer works for you, and pic #3 has the least flattering cut/view. You should probably look for some length contrast (shorter on sides than on top). I like #1, but the top could be grown out just a little more in that one, while #2 could use more (or more recent) trimming on the sides.

I'll second Kiss My Face. The drug store brands don't lubricate enough and the higher-end stuff I try often gums up the razors. So I get KMF unscented and it lasts me almost the year. I am a big fan of shaving oil, Shave Deluxe, out of Texas, which I like better than King of Shaves or the British brands.
