What truly makes a man, manly? Is it doing work out in the yard with your hands that really makes you a man? Maybe. Is it working on a muscle car in the ultimate man cave known as a garage? Possibly. Is it that moment when he holds onto his wife’s purse and holds it far away from his body so nobody thinks it is his? Absolutely not. What about when a man is forced to watch the Real Housewives of Orange County instead of Monday Night Football? You actually become less of a man when this happens and Burt Reynolds shows up at your house, slaps you across the face, and takes your man card forever. There is something that does verify you are in fact a man every other day (or every day for some of our hairier friends) and that is when you shave. We got a demo kit of Wet Shave Club and were surprised how happy we were with the kit (and our ability to finally have a wet shave).
The problem with shaving in these modern days are the modern ways in which we do it. We get an overpriced razor and have to pick a shaving gel that has 40 different moisturizers in it. A package of eight razors costs almost $30 and most of them go bad after one shave. What is the answer? The answer is to look back to grandpappy and realize how he always looked so dapper even after living through two world wars. WetShaveClub is a new company that offers you the opportunity to become that old school Rat Pack kind of man by shipping you a package each month (for a pretty reasonable price) and give you everything you need to start with a wet shave. Your first package comes with a razor handle (the nice kind), a couple sets of razors, wet shave soaps, aftershaves, styptic matches and the occasional mystery item as well. You get a step by step instruction sheet too since most of us have forgotten the amazing art of a wet shave (or have never experienced one). If you have an old man that has a birthday coming up or some other holiday, consider getting him one of these as a subscription gift. He’ll claim you as a son again and you will have got him the best gift he’s ever received (much better than the piano tie of 2008). Click here for image source and where to sign up for WetShaveClub.
