What's Wrong with Bearded Boy Scouts?


Thanks to Ogilvy & Mather, the Boy Scouts of America's new print campaign features bearded boys and urges them to "Be One with the Wild". What could possibly go wrong?

Perhaps Ogilvy & Mather need a better editorial calendar as well. Considering that it's Movember, wouldn't a couple of mustachioed boys be a better fit?

A Barbershop Rye in San Francisco

If you're in the Bay area, you might be able to get a shave and a haircut, plus a bottle of handcrafted whiskey, all from the same man.

"1512 Spirits is a contradiction of sorts. Having burst onto the scene in May, you could say that they're the new kid on the block, yet, the Cimino family has been distilling for decades and decades. 1512 Spirits' master distiller, Salvatore Cimino, is a character straight out of a craft distilling graphic novel (seriously, can we get this?). By day, he cuts hair at 1512 Barber Shop in San Francisco's Nob Hill; in the dark of the night, he puts on his distilling cape and plies his trade at their Rohnert Park distillery in Sonoma County. Now, let me just say that I've visited a couple of one-man-show, start-up distillers, and it's painful and sometimes tragic to watch them struggle to swim upstream in an industry that is cold and brutal. The fact that Sal can keep a 9-to-5 job and run a distillery on the side qualifies for bona fide superhero status in my book.Sal's barber shop bat lair on 1512 Pine St. has a liquor cabinet with whiskeys and Scotches, and probably a teleportation device which beams him to the distillery after the barber shop closes. The last appointment of the day sometimes comes with an invitation to try some of his products."

We know there are plenty of products on the market, and we try to help guide our readers toward shaving and grooming products which not only work well, but are also a good deal for the money. (There is no charge for reviews, as we just need to get the item in our hands to review it.)

We are also happy to pass on news about sales or special deals to our readers, which can help put your products in front of new customers.

If this is of interest to you, send us an email at ShavingStuff (@) and we'll get back to you with the details.
