With your social calendar undoubtedly filling up, it’s prime time to ensure you’re looking your best as well as throwing jolly good holiday bashes, should you be hosting. Since proper presentation begins with a clean shave, we’ve included tips from Liverpool barber Ronaldo de Silva for a satisfying wet shave, as well as a quirky trick to try: supposedly, putting shaving cream on your mirror before you shower prevents the mirror from fogging up. If you’re in the habit of shaving after you shower, that means faster shaves, without the annoyance of not being able to see yourself. (We suggest doing this with old shaving cream foam from another life).
For those holiday parties, Bartender Tristan Willey of Brooklyn’s Long Island Bar creates a menu of 13 cocktails, all with a wintery twist (think vodka and cointreu mixed with cranberry juice and allspice). Meanwhile, MR PORTER enlists the help of jet setter Mark-Francis Vandelli for his best posh party tips.
Finally, we get to the bread and butter of the season with our picks for Christmas presents for the discerning gentleman.
Enjoy, and have a great holiday season!
