The New York Shaving Company
According to Esquire, every man should have a nose-and-hair trimmer in his medicine cabinet—specifically, the discreet, bullet-shaped one from The New York Shaving Company. This item, along with several other locally produced grooming products, have earned accolades from publications including the New York Times and GQ Italia. The craftsmen who manufacture these tools follow Old World techniques, whether aligning badger hairs into rounded shaving brushes or sharpening blades on Michelangelo’s rock-hard abs.
As a complement to its retail operation, The New York Shaving Company hosts two tonsorial parlors in Manhattan. Here, expertly trained barbers administer grooming services such as close shaves, haircuts, beard trims, and skin treatments. They also accept dull blades for sharpening and teach classes that reeducate men in the art of shaving. During these sessions, men learn how to prevent redness, irritation, and ingrown hairs, which are all common side effects of shaving with an old credit card.
