HOLIDAY MEMO TO MEN: SPRUCE YOURSELVES UP!

men stuff

The men’s grooming industry is one of the fastest growing worldwide, with men (no kidding) now eclipsing women in spending on grooming products. While nobody’s recommending a spray tan or any misadventures with guyliner (leave that to Keith Richards for up-all-night rock star glamour) there’s something to be said for indulging in an old-school experience – a barbershop trim and wet shave, complete with hot towel face wrap – for the slew of Holiday events.

Add a hint of Tom Ford Men’s Cologne and a slick of hair styling spray, possibly the British import Murdock’s bracingly Sea Salt-scented, and you’ll be fittingly spruced up.

There’s also something to be said for the quiet joy of shoe shining. Yes, we said j-o-y. To give or receive, beautifully crafted shoe shine kits can serve dual purposes. While putting a bang-up gleam on one’s boots, indulge in the contemporary guy’s version of stress relief therapy.
