Shaving Brush – Parker (similar)
Bowl and Soap – D R Harris

Like a good cup of coffee, my morning routine—at least Monday through Friday—also consists of shaving. Also like my morning coffee, I like taking my time and enjoying the process of shaving. It’s one of the few times that I force myself to slow down during the day. And I honestly find it therapeutic. For a few years now, that process has included using a shaving brush, soap, and my safety razor. Do you like to use a brush and soap for your shave? What brands have you tried and which are your favorites?

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,

He Spoke Style

10 Essential Ties

March 12th, 2014

Here it is, everyone! The video that newsletter subscribers have been hearing me talk about for the past two weeks. As you already know, a tie is one of the most essential accessories for the well-dressed man. But if you're just getting started with your menswear collection, where do you begin? What are the 10 ties that every guy should have? I wanted to put together a video sharing 10 ties that I consider must haves.

Several of the looks in the video have been featured on the blog (and a few will be published in the coming weeks). Here's a list of those that currently have companion posts. Click for more as well as full outfit details:
