Before this board is shoved off full force - I/we should write a few little tidbits for new guys, such as equipment lists.
I am looking for 3 types - a barebones, cheap equipment list, a high quality equipment list, and then a "do it once and do it right" equipment list.
Possible items - pre-shave, razor, brush, cream/soap, aftershave
Fire away gentlemen! Lets see what we can come up with!
My proposed 3 setups....
1.) Omega Boar brush ($12.50) , Omega Shave soap ($6), Merkur Classic long handle ($24), Proraso A/S pre-post, liquid cream, or splash ($12)
Net - $54.50
2.) Savile Row SR-208 Tortoise brush ($58), Jar of Taylors Shaving cream ($13.50), Merkur Slant Bar ($33), Crabtree & Evelyn Nomad a/s balm ($30)
Net - $134.50
3.) Shavemac XXL Horn Handle brush ($109), Jar of Castle Forbes Shaving Cream ($27.50), Merkur Vision ($99), CAR A/S moisture Cream ($35)
Net - $270.50
