On the other hand, you seem to have a terabyte's worth of 1930's Apparel Arts scans that you pleasure yourself to. 110% of these are white men. These are the same ppl you would rush out to cancel now. What do you think these people thought of people of color, or LGBT's, or Asians? Or how they treated women?

Not that I am promoting woke culture to any extent, but instead the showing how weird it is to say we cannot appreciate certain parts of a subculture, without endorsing 100% of it.

I'm interested in recommendations for this sort of thing. I like my current deodorant but believe it still has aluminum. I previously tried switching to a baking soda based product but experienced a very unpleasant itching/burning reaction after a day or two. Not sure if that would have gone away had I pressed on.
Yes, I'm not a fan of baking soda either for that same reason. It has a PH that is too high for the skin's natural levels, so I doubt it would have improved much had you continued. Acqua di Parma has a really nice Colonia deodorant that's probably my favourite so far, but a bit more of a luxury thing. Another good one is Malin + Goetz Bergamot. Corpus has tons of good ones, so you can pick your preference in scents. I've also heard good things about Salt and Stone deodorants, although I have yet to try any.

None of these include talc, aluminum, or baking soda. They'll be pricier, but well worth it IME. And they always seem to last longer.

Hey, you can make bespoke fragrances. I don't see that a deodorant is very much different.

Can someone make Foo a bespoke deodorant? That's the question we need to be discussing.
None other than Cartier offers custom perfumery from 50,000 euros. I think they could throw in a deodorant stick.

To get custom deodorant, Foo would have to order custom perfume, and then assume he'll be wrongly shipped custom deodorant

I started using Clubman's Bay Rum last year and I'll probably never go back to regular deodorant. I buy it by the case, and refill an 8-oz. spray bottle as needed ("decanting" for the gentleman and connaisseurs among you). This is also good for other challenging fragrance areas that might bedevil the budding cowboy or ranch hand 'round these parts.

Western Shirts -> Western Boots -> (detour to racism/subgroups/gatekeeping/etc) -> Cars -> Deodorant.

This is the thread that keeps on giving. I wonder what will be next.
I'm hoping it's cowboy hats.
Edit:

I really like this one. Maybe change it to have a more rounded back and a lighter brown felt.

Hats & belts would make sense, but this is a :foo2: thread so who knows? :eh:

Not every hero uses a belt.

Some of us prefer ropes.

That's why you buy multiples of 10 of course.

In all seriousness, personally I don't find that a problem. Normal wash and they're fine again. But I guess that depends on your specific sweat...
I've had sweat stains become permanent on linen, when I let it set for months before having it cleaned.

Here's the car equivalent of Charvet's western shirt:

Many years ago I saw a beautifully rendered custom pickup built from a vintage Rolls. It had a built-in pull-out cook top so your butler can prepare tea when you arrive at your location.


he knows he can call me up for a ride in my XC90 with my Harry Potter vanity plates and my Harry, Ron, and Hedwig windshield sun blocker screen thing.
What a coincidence: I have a limited edition Harry, Ron and Hedwig sunscreen on my living room wall!
