Groom Like a Gentleman with Products from the Art of Shaving, St. James of London and Harry’s Shave System

e-shave

Impeccable personal style isn’t just about the right clothing—it’s also about the perfect shave. If you want your skin to feel as smooth and supple as your favorite silk tie, you must groom yourself like a true gentleman. But, “how does one groom like a gentleman?” you ask.

Good question. Here’s your answer: use the right products. Not just any disposable razor and $1.99 shaving cream will do. No, sir. You need tools and products that treat your face like you care for your finest suits.

Here are a few high-end men’s grooming lines we suggest (and carry in the store): 

The Art of Shaving

The Art of Shaving offers the largest variety of pre-shave oils and gels, shaving creams, soaps, and aftershaves. They come in several manly scents including sandalwood, lemon, lavender, and of course, the manliest fragrance of all: unscented. All of their products are free from synthetic dyes and alcohol, so they won’t irritate your skin.

St. James of London

St. James of London is like the barrel-aged fine wine of men’s grooming products. Their badger brushes and single-blade razors look as good as they make your skin feel. It seems like your great grandfather was on to something after all…

St. James of London has a full line of creams, oils and aftershaves too, in subtle fragrances like Mandarin & Patchouli, Cedarwood & Clarysage, Sandalwood & Bergamot, Black Pepper & Lime, and Lavender & Geranium. You can also get unscented versions of their products too, but these smell so good that it’d be a shame if you went for plain.

Harry’s

Harry’s makes elegant modern razors that, in their words, “feel like an extension of your hand.” They are designed with ergonomics in mind, for comfort and control. Also, with Harry’s, everything you need comes in one stylish box: a razor, two replacement blades, shaving gel or cream, aftershave and soap. It doesn’t get much easier than this.

Gift Ideas for the Picky Guy on Your List

Figuring out what Christmas gift to get for a guy with very discerning sartorial tastes can be difficult. You know that not just any sweater, tie, or pair of socks will do. No, they have to be the highest quality and most luxurious sweaters, ties, and socks around. Understandably, this can leave you feeling like, “what on earth do I get him?”

Luckily, we here at Binghams are well-versed in the tastes of picky men, and don’t even blink when presented with the challenge of finding something for the guy who has super fine taste. We love it, in fact. And to show you just how much we love it, we’ve come up with our own holiday gift guide.

All of the items on this list are available right here at Binghams, and we’d be happy to help you pick them out.

1. A bow tie or classic necktie
Now, before you say, “how unoriginal,” consider this: a tie is only a lame gift if the tie itself is lame. Therefore, you want to get him a tie that far surpasses any you’d get at a department store. Here at Binghams, we have a plethora of ties so fine and elegant that they can make a guy purr. Some of the brands we carry are Robert Talbott, Byron, and Hickey Freeman.

2. Fine grooming products
Great style isn’t just about fine clothes; it’s also about fine grooming. Pamper him with luxurious products from Moonshine, an exclusive line of men’s cologne, soap and aftershave balm.

3. Sophisticated sports wear from Barbour
Upscale sportswear (or “outdoor wear”) is the trendiest way to stay warm this season, and Binghams has today’s hottest brand for outdoor wear: Barbour. We have vests, shirts, hats and satchels that will absolutely turn heads.

4. A pair of Allen Edmonds shoes
Harsh winter weather can wreak havoc on a guy’s favorite shoes, so get him a pair of Allen Edmonds, shoes that are known for withstanding the elements and lasting for years. In fact, A.E.s last so long and wear so well that owners typically repair rather than replace them.

We have a wide selection of Allen Edmonds footwear.

5. David Donahue dress shirts
A guy can never have too many David Donahue dress shirts. They are among the finest in the world and Binghams has a wide variety for you to choose from.
