I am a beard guy. I'm not a moustache man in the least.

However, I have a soft spot for classic man things, and a straight razor cut certainly gets my respect.

Enter Francis the Duke's Barber Co., a classic barber shop boasting "Full-Service Style Cuts" and "Beard and 'Stache Service." For $35, the Duke gave me my stache. It took wax and razors and scissors and cream and hot towels. Also, two beers from Philadelphia's own Yards Brewing Company.

I have similar sentiments. I'm not a moustache man by any means and I love my beard. I only rock a moustache for one month out of the year and I only do it to hang out with the other staches of mm. Good to see you sir.

I was skeptical my first time around, but by the end of the month, I was sold. Now I go beard in fall/winter and moustache in the warmer months.

having someone else shave me is the scariest thing i can imagine.

justjamey says:
@danimal I was imagining him slitting my throat whenever he worked my neck. I realized that I am the benefit of our flawed criminal justice system, since a combination of common sense, decency, and fear of repercussions have probably kept many a man from a slit throat.

I fear those blades near my neck, but I respect the wielders.

Top hole, Sir. If one doesn't have a chap to take the shaving strain, what is one thinking? What?

Fofe says:
If one has to abandon their beard, this looks like the most civilized way to a moustache. Good to see you again!

@chuckdamage HA! I can't remember the last time I was in Fresno. Maybe two years ago? I've been to Bakersfield a few months ago, though, just down the road from Fresno.
