Designed for experienced travelers, the Limited Edition J.W. Hulme Co. Overnight Briefcase in Portage is a superb example of travel bags for men. Each leather briefcase is handmade using brass, comfortable lining, unbreakable thread, and top grain leathers. Possessing multiple compartments that can be secured using attached zippers, this product has no shortage of the storage space needed to hold business documents and a change of clothes for professional men heading out on overnight trips.
Although its founder started out manufacturing tents for American soldiers and did not start producing sporting bags until much later, J.W. Hulme Co. has since switched over to producing bags on a full-time basis. For much of its existence, the Minnesotan manufacturer focused on pursuing the same cost advantages as its competitors, but reconsidered in 2003. Skilled artisans living in the United States are responsible for making all of its modern bags by hand using nothing but materials purchased from domestic producers.

Sometimes, facial hair can grow into the skin, causing it to become infected and inflamed. In many cases, the hairs curl to continue growing into the skin, while in other cases, they grow into the side of the hair follicles instead of emerging from the pores. Shaving is considered the leading cause of ingrown hairs because it results in shortened hairs with tips that are sharper than normal. As a result, it is easier for these shortened hairs to become trapped in the follicles by a build-up of dead skin and similar material and become ingrown hair. At the same time, it is also easier for the shortened hairs to penetrate the skin and cause hair follicle inflammation. » Read the rest of this entry «

Where does that deep sigh of contentment come from the moment you first catch a whiff of the new Coconut shaving cream from Taylor of Old Bond Street? Starts down at your toes, strangely feeling a sandy bite, with a final exhale of pure relaxation and slow-paced peacefulness.

Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief honors its name by efficiently taking care of small cuts. Forget the toilet paper bits.
Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief is a product that rivals the Clubman Styptic Pencil. Both products share one common goal. They are formulated to stop the bleeding that often occurs with wet shaving. Many men have experienced the inconvenience of small nicks and cuts that appear on their faces no matter how slowly and carefully they shave. Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief is one alternative to hastily applied bits of toilet paper placed all over one’s face.
Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief differs from its predecessor, the styptic pencil, in several different ways. One of the most dramatic ways in which it differs is the lack of a stinging sensation when applied. » Read the rest of this entry «

Clubman Styptic Pencil, in its new advertising campaign masterfully art-directed by Toronto’s Steven Savicky.
The Clubman Styptic Pencil is one gentlemen’s shaving product that performs exactly as described. This small white stick in the distinctive green package contains alum, which is an astringent. This ingredient safely and effectively stops the bleeding associated with the nicks and cuts sometimes caused by shaving. The pencil is stored dry. The user moistens the tip slightly before pressing it against the skin at the site of the cut. It only takes one small application to constrict blood vessels at the site of the bleeding. The pencil leaves behind a light layer of white residue that seals the cut and protects it from becoming infected. Pinaud, the company behind the Clubman name, has a history that dates back to 1810 when it was created by a Parisian named Edouard Pinaud. » Read the rest of this entry «

Pinaud Lilac Vegetal was the very first after shave lotion made by Edouard Pinaud himself. He created the Pinaud Lilac Vegetal After Shave Lotion in the 1800s, especially for the men in the Hungarian cavalry. The product was formulated to be refreshing enough to use as a full-body splash as well as an after shave lotion. The founder of the Pinaud family of men’s grooming products had the unique distinction of being the perfumer for the court of Napoleon III in the 19th century. With an illustrious history like Pinaud’s, it is hardly surprising that his first after shave lotion is still on the market. Although it can be challenging to find at brick and mortar retail locations, Pinaud Lilac Vegetal After Shave Lotion is simple and convenient to buy online.
