    First shave with self honed straight

    Thread Starter: nineteeneightyfour

    Hello Gents, I want to share some good news and words of encouragement and appreciation to the good folks at the B&B.

    Black or Brown?

    Thread Starter: Wingnut722

    I've seen it work both ways so I'm curious as to a show of hands from this crowd. Typical business casual office setting - Slacks and button-down long sleeve shirt. When the slacks are navy blue, which color shoes and belt would you wear? Black or brown?

    Simpsons: Berkeley or Duke?

    Thread Starter: Pioneer
