A well-groomed visage is the base upon which all sartorial offerings are subsequently placed, and for this reason there must be no compromise on quality. Furthermore, a gentleman surrounded by attractive grooming items which bespeak a more elegant era will be more up to the task of spreading bonhomie and anarcho-dandyism than someone with a bag of Bic razors and a tin of shaving foam.
The Chap’s very own exclusive brand of shaving soap features zingy lime notes on a base of sandalwood and tobacco, making for a sharp, tangy, old-fashioned scent, guaranteed to put a spring into the step of a freshly shaved chap. It comes in an attractive screw top tin, which is easy to dig your badger hair shaving brush into and work up a generous lather.
Atters’ Alchemy Moustache Wax
The Chap’s editor-at-large, Michael “Atters” Attree, has assisted us in developing a startlingly unique moustache wax. He insisted on a scent that was both manly and fragrant, and a consistency that would maintain his personal set of whiskers to the loftiest heights imaginable. The result is Atters’ Alchemy, which comes in a neutral colour for all shades and types of facial plumage.
Moustache Grower’s Kit
Growing a moustache is a calling that men only embark on when they have mastered everything else in life. With the help of Michael “Atters” Attree, the Chap’s moustache expert, To help them along their way, we have created a moustache grower’s kit. It comprises of a pair of moustache scissors, a moustache comb and a tin of Atters’ Alchemy moustache wax, and is quite frankly all you will need to take you from the world of the humble hairless upper lipped, into the heady realm of Handlebars, Imperials and Fu Manchus.
Cyril Salter Open Razor
The open razor was used as a symbol of English gentlemanly tradition in the last James Bond film Skyfall for good reason. Also sometimes known as a “cut-throat” razor, don’t let the gruesome nomenclature put you off. This is the most traditional and precise way to remove one’s stubble, and with a little instruction and a lot of practice, you will soon have the billiard-ball smooth chin of a dapper secret agent.
For those not yet ready to take on Bond’s shaving methods, an original safety razor, with its replaceable double-edged blades, still reeks of gentlemanly tradition. The blades last very much longer than your average Mach 3, and of course the razor itself is a far more beautiful object to behold, and to hold. This one is by renowned British company Edwin Jagger and comes with a free pack of 5 razor blades.
Derby Razor Blades
These double-edged blades are for use with old style safety razors, such as those made by Edwin Jagger, see above. The five double-sided Stainless Steel blades are individually wrapped and come housed in a plastic safety dispenser. Each side of each blade will give you at least three excellent shaves, making you huge savings in the long run.
