This reminds me..
so much of my pops. He’s an old school guy and still uses his shave kit. When I asked him why he prefers the mug & brush he told me “it’s gentler on your face and gives you a smoother shave. The drawbacks are it’s cumbersome for traveling, and a little more time consuming.” There happens to be many more modern options these days, and New York Shaving Company, The Art of Shaving and Etsy are just three (of the many) great resources for finding these classic grooming tools.
