Weekend Reading

Another week has gone by, and, yet again, the Internet is chock full of great writing, terrible videos and important news.  There are also a couple great sales going on this weekend, so don’t miss the shopping links.  Here’s what I’m reading, watching and shopping for this week. Reading 1. I don’t want to be an alarmist, but as a dog lover, please just keep a watchful eye. 2. The Canuck Shaver is putting out some great reviews these days. 3. Elon Musk thinks big.  The idea of humans being a multiplanet species if coming. 4. My wife and I have noticed for the last few years that J. Crew’s women’s clothes had changed.  Of course their men’s line is still fantastic. 5. This article from Effortless Gent gives some great advice on developing your own style. Watching 6. I don’t even know what to say about this one, but I can’t stop watching it. 7. Australians have a strange sense of humor. 8. Just let it go, mister. Shopping 9. Brooks Brothers has an incredible sale going on that hasn’t been advertised strangely.  You…

Weekend Reading April 10, 2015

We’ve been dog-sitting this week, which means four dogs in the house and four dogs trying to jump in the bed all night, so I’ve been a little tired and a little slow this week.  He’s a good dog, so it’s easy to forgive, but I definitely didn’t get to post or write as much as I wanted to this week.  Next week I’ll be sure to do two product reviews among other articles.  I’m excited to get this razor blade project underway too.  Unfortunately (for the blog anyway, haha) this weekend is chock full of things to distract me, including a few things on this week’s list of reading, watching and shopping, so let’s get to it. Reading 1. First off, this incredible article from Wet Shaving Times is so relatable for so many people who have made the switch to traditional shaving with a safety razor.  If you haven’t made the switch yet, just read this and try not to. 2. In one of two articles this week on suits, this short piece from GQ got me really thinking about what I…

6. I can definitely tell you I’ll be watching the New Muppet Show when it comes out…

3. I’m pretty obsessed these days on perfecting my morning routine (even though it’s pretty crazy right now with two small kids), which is why I subscribe to My Morning Routine.  The most recent post highlighting Amber Rae was a good one…

So it looks like we’re ringing in spring with a little snow storm.  Snow at this time of year is so disheartening.  When spring hits, you know that warmer weather is just around the corner, but those snowflakes serve to remind you that that corner is a little further off than you thought…

Here’s a collection of a few things I’ve been reading and looking at this week. Here’s a new shaving technique that I’ll be trying this week. Brian always has fantastic tips and impeccable taste. I really loved this piece The Art of Manliness did on one of my favorites, Winston Churchill. We all want to stay in shape, but no one wants to be that guy who annoys everyone with his stories.  Don’t be that guy. I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting a new pair of jeans this weekend. After going to several Crossfit boxes over a couple of years, I found this interview very interesting. (Ok, I know it’s not reading, but still…) There should be a new mail call coming soon including this and this and this.  Oh, and maybe this. Once I get those new jeans, I’ll know how to take care of them. Do you have Razor Acquisition Disorder (RAD)? I love reading about morning routines, and this is a highly productive one. Regards, Tailor & Barber…
