As always, a very well put together series.

Sucks that we have to wait so long in between them, but totally understandable given the quality and effort put into each one.

They'll be once a month for the next three months, then we'll be resetting for season two. Honestly haven't decided how we're going to pay for that yet

I enjoyed it, as I do all your episodes and the blog itself. The only thing I would have liked to have seen is something about proper care of your hands (particularly nails).

putting your jacket back on at the barber's (2:55) looks like there's some extra fabric on the top at the back of the collar/neck area. Is that Sprezz I see with your tie or just skinny blade longer than the thick?

I find some topics are skimmed over while others are too in depth. Eg the shaving part made a half attempt to actually teach wetshaving but probably would have been better spent talking about the general practice, tools, prices, benefits, etc instead of a how to instruction. Cologne can be good, so isntead of just one second saying 'don't wear too much' you could have talked about where to go to try them out, some of the more popular and niche names, how to figure out what you like, etc.

you really could do a whole set of vids on grooming... when I think of grooming, you could cover everything from how to shine shoes, to how to iron, to hairstyles/faceshapes, how to clean common stains (eg wine, sweaty collar), manicure/pedicure, oral tools, etc.

don't get me wrong, I love your overall demenour and style and I think the vids are VERY well produced, but the content is a little all over the place IMO.

PS - lol at 9:13, the camera guy catching his reflection in the mirror...

Quite good, but I think the background music is too much in the foreground again.

Enjoyable as usual, PTO. Of the episodes so far, I think that the best bits have been the interviews. Keep on trucking!

The next episode has two really cool interviews. I think you will enjoy them.

The only nit I have is that I think one should spend time working up their lather on their face and not in the bowl. Get some shave soap on the badger brush in 5-8 seconds, and spend 2 minutes putting it on your face. That allows for the soap to really be worked in and cover every hair. I don't end up with a lather in the bowl itself.

Great episode.

Recommendations on the other pieces to buy? Saw you put a link to the DE razor on your site today. I'm very interested in picking up this shaving method as the mach 3 doesn't get close enough for me. My facial hair comes in very thick. I'd love to get that super smooth shave, think Bale's great wake-up scene in American Psycho.
