Editor's Pick

When a young man picks up his first razor is an iconic moment in his transition into manhood. Most often it happens under the careful guidance of a father or father-figure and for many a can of Barbasol Barbasol was also a part of that experience. Which makes it fitting that just in time for Father's Day, the brand has come out with the "Field Guide to Manhood," a book of tips passed on through generations of men. GSD&M worked with the well-known shaving brand to give advice on how to groom, eat, drink, camp, and live like a mister. The book is currently available on Amazon for $19.19 (a play on the year Barbasol was founded) with 100% of profits going the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
