    I think that will take sartorial (felt like using this word per Joe's post about overused words) cajones to pull off.

    A bit of a roll lately. I picked up these pants:

    http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-e...246063_-1.html

    They are slim but I like the look and feel of them. My tailor is letting the legs out.



    This was a gift and I think it is really great. A cover for a double-edge safety razor. I feel like I can more easily travel with it now.



    Not everyone's style but I picked up these Vibram sole Grensons. They have already been fantastic in this brutal MN winter. I just purchased some Obenauf's LP to use with them as well. Other random purchases, Schnee's conditioner, feather blades for the razor.

    Yeah, gonna pair it with really simple pieces (there is another word from that list ), layer it under a blazer, maybe try pulling it off with a more causal suit, will let you guys know in WIWT. BTW: Grensons look great

    greg - you keep your double edge pieced together between shaves?

    @tdig, yep. I don't keep that cover on it. I have a stand that it hangs on day to day. I never considered taking it apart, seems like more work than it's worth. I'm also not "into" shaving; as in I don't read shave forums or anything. I just like how my face looks and feels after using it.

    @Matt, thanks they've quickly become daily wearers.

    Basically the same for me although I don't think I get a better shave with it than the fusion pro I was using before then. I mainly switched since I was getting tired of paying $3-$4 per blade even though I only switched it out about every 3 weeks.

    @vicious, are you using feather blades? I find the shave to be much much better with feather blades.

    @andrew, google Kenton Sorenson. His goods are nothing short of fantastic. The price on most items is laughable for dappered (though I do also own the Dopp kit), but the blade cover is really reasonable. Tight at first but it stretches nicely. Also his leather goods develop a beautiful patina over time.

    Greg - I got a variety pack that had 7 different types of blades, including Feathers. My hair grows in so many different directions that the blade doesn't seem to make much of a difference. I usually go with the grain with the 1st pass, then go against the grain with my 2nd pass, then use the Fusion pro for a 3rd pass in whatever direction to get anything that I couldn't get with the straight edge razor.
