Christmas gifts from Samuel Windsor

Just the other day, I had to get ready for a formal event in Central London. An unavoidable last-minute outfit change meant I was scrabbling around for a tie and handkerchiefs. Had I opened a Christmas gift-package that had just arrived from men’s clothing retailer Samuel Windsor, I’d have found both items inside.

A quality shaving experience with Váli

If there’s one thing I like, it’s a polite but firm approach. When asked if I’d like to try out and the Starter Kit from shaving specialist Váli, I received the an email from one of the company’s founders stating: “I note your coarse facial hair and think you would like our products.” With that simple statement, Váli had set itself a challenge. Here’s how it coped with my coarse facial hair.

Urtekram and Hair Trade reviews

It’s been a while since I have reviewed any men’s grooming or toiletry products. I am delighted to bring that particular drought to an end with reviews of several items that have impressed me greatly.

Dollar Shave Club; A part of my morning routine

Mornings are always a busy time in our household. I think it’s the same in most families with young children. I will, however, always take the time to ensure I am well-groomed and presentable.
