Welcome to February!
With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks away, we’re sharing ideas for beautifully crafted, thoughtful presents for your significant other that don’t come from the mall or the neighborhood drug store. If you’re in a long term relationship and really want to impress her, we’ve included an article featuring the most romantic hotels in the world. From Marrakesh, Morocco to Shima, Japan, these hotels are destinations in and of themselves.
In wet shaving news, the Sharpologist talks about the allure of luxury razors and explains what you’re getting for the money. And we interview Barbershops of America author and photographer Rob Hammer about why it was important for him to document traditional barbershops across America. Hammer captures these community watering holes – and their barbers – in a way that honors this slowly disappearing institution.
We hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
