Douglas Smythe's insight:

What is a Pencil Moustache? A Pencil Moustache is a wisp of a stache “drawn” between your nose and your upper lip. This is a rather neatly trimmed breed of cookie duster…in fact, I would be surprised if you even chance upon dusting a cookie. The moustache is meant to resemble a thin line drawn [...] Read More...

Moustache March | How to Grow a Moustache

Moustache March | How to Grow a Moustache | How to Grow a Moustache | Scoop.it
What is Moustache March? How can I grow a bullet proof moustache? All these questions answered and then some. Welcome to HowToGrowAMoustache.Com!
Douglas Smythe's insight:

Movember has come and gone and we get it!  Most of us were down for the cause and in solidarity we grew what at first seemed merely like an ironic little flavor savor reminiscent of something worn in the 70′s or 80′s…but then something magical happened.  A symbiotic connection was made between our upper lips and our hearts.  But alas, November came and went and we found ourselves in front of the mirror on December 1st clutching a cold razor and a little unsure of the desecration about to be committed upon our furry little partner in crime.  I couldn’t do it.

Douglas Smythe's insight:

An immediate great lather resulted, and I went at my beard with my new Schick Krona, which I purchased on eBay, coincidentally from a blog reader. With a Kai blade I got a very smooth shave indeed: three passes to BBS.

Mustaches of the OK Corral | How to Grow a Moustache

Mustaches of the OK Corral | How to Grow a Moustache | How to Grow a Moustache | Scoop.it
It’s one of the most famous gunfights in American history. It’s in basically half of all Western movies ever made.
Douglas Smythe's insight:

It’s one of the most famous gunfights in American history. It’s in basically half of all Western movies ever made. It’s a shootout that defined the American Wild West, a frontier of open country with, like, way more outlaws than lawmen, which pretty much made it like living in Grand Theft Auto.

More importantly, though, it was a shootout of epic mustaches. Nearly everyone involved was rocking some serious upper-lip mojo.

However, decades of hype and cinematic overkill have led to lots of misconceptions about what actually happened at the OK Corral. So before we discuss the mustaches, let’s get our facts straight.

Wet Shaving: Why Now? | How to Grow a Moustache

Wet Shaving: Why Now? | How to Grow a Moustache | How to Grow a Moustache | Scoop.it
Recently, the major shaving industry has been floundering as margins become almost as narrow as the blades they cram into those molded plastic heads. The major companies, such as  Proctor & Gamble (parent company of Gillette) and Energizer (parent company of Schick), have placed the blame on trends and style fads — namely, “The Hipster.” It’s the reasoning of the major players that the increased love for facial fur has decreased the demand for their products. It’s an interesting ideology, for sure, but I’m fairly certain it’s completely incorrect.

Douglas Smythe's insight:

Ever been given a dirty look that didn’t sit well with you? Or has anyone ever done something that upset you so much you found yourself naturally giving them a mean glare in response? While this may seem like a harmless way to blow off steam, in many cultures and religions, this look could be regarded as something a bit more serious. In fact, there’s a well-known term for it that many consider nothing to take lightly—the evil eye.

Douglas Smythe's insight:

As Movember comes to a close, many men are faced with a difficult question: “To shave or not to shave?” That is the question. I know that, personally, growing a moustache throughout the month of November is one of the most enjoyable experiences of my entire year. Being able to walk around an office with facial hair full of pride is something every man strives to accomplish, whether he knows it or not. Movember is the month where any man can say their favorite Ron Burgundy or Ron Swanson quotes without looking like a (complete) d-bag.

Shortly after I began wet shaving, I was struck with a minor case of razor acquisition disorder (RAD for short) and purchased a Gillette tech as well as a straight razor. One thing to know about using a straight is the additional care that they require. They need to be stropped before each shave, oiled to prevent rust during storage, honed on occasion, and handled with the utmost care.
