I'm a newbie here, too. But I know what you mean by 1950s "class." Many of the suggestions I see here are great. Also try Truefitt and Hill Spanish Leather or the Limes (I can't remember the exact name, but check the *shopping links* on this site. They are EXCELLENT, btw!) Bay Rum is great suggestion. Heck, just my Proraso After Shave has gotten compliments!
[FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I do not belong to the school which holds that aggression is to be met by concession. Mine is the opposite creed, which teaches that encroachments must be met at the beginning, and that those who act on the opposite principle are prepared to become slaves. In this case, in particular, I hold concession or compromise to be fatal.[i]--John C. Calhoun of South Carolina[/i][/font]
