Why should only the women be represented in this section? This is old-fashioned men's grooming, from the days when a guy could be a dandy with no fear, and the barbershop was your local hangout. Look for old-fashioned shave brushes, hand-held razors, hot towels, and cigar smoke -- all of it adding up to the blissful experience they call "The Shave at the End of the Universe." That scruffy grunge look was so '90s. You know you want to be a sharp-dressed man, and you can start here. Or buy that man of yours some good grooming implements (they have a fine selection of such items), and for the love of mike, teach him to shave with the grain. Aidan Gill never closed during the storm and its aftermath, and that ought to count for something.
