The Grooming Artist News Roundup: July 2016


Since most of us are packing our bags for a much-deserved getaway this 4th of July weekend, we’ve assembled everything you need to know to celebrate Independence Day in style. Before you officially head out, get your feet ready for the beach with tips from Dr. Lee Cohen, a podiatrist who cares for the feet of guys who put their feet through an enormous amount of daily abuse – football players.

Once you’re sunbathing by the ocean, pull out one of our how-to articles for some light but educational reading: Gentleman’s Gazette has a video on how to spot the difference between a $500 suit and a $5000 suit, and GQ teaches you how to find your perfect summer fragrance.

And since you’re probably going to end up somewhere near a grill on the 4th, we couldn’t finish this roundup without some recipes, authored by the folks at Food & Wine.

All of us at RoyalShave wish you a safe and happy 4th of July!
