There is no feeling on earth like sliding into the $125 robe in your room at the Ritz Carlton after spending six hours on the most difficult obstacle course in the world. Wait a minute, did someone say “Carlton”? I thought they did.
This robe is the kind of robe Carlton would’ve rocked when he was on “Silver Spoons” with Ricky Schroeder. God, how I yearned to ride on that sweet in-house train, even just to go get the mail. Imagine me and the robe and the train. We’d run a train on the train; me, Carlton, the robe, Ricky… good times.
Sure, I thought about stealing the robe. Who wouldn’t? But the minute I stepped foot off the premises, the magic would’ve been gone, like when a young Moonlight Graham steps over the foul line in “Field of Dreams” to be irrevocable transformed into Doc, the kindly doctor who removes a piece of hot dog from Kevin Costner’s daughter’s airway to save her life.
Anyway, I left the robe, and about a pound of ball skin, on the mountain that day, and lived to tell the tale.
- Keeping it REAL klassy on the mountain…
But you know what I didn’t leave on the mountain that day, friends? Sweat, or a stench of any kind. That’s because Degree had my back, not unlike the way Chuck Norris had Jonathan Brandis’ back in the movie “Sidekicks.”
Degree allows you to DO: MORE with three levels of protection.

I am not a bald man, but I know an effective head-shaving razor when I see one.
It looks gimmicky at first, but the minute you insert your fingers and take it for a ride, you notice it was built for maximum efficiency and ease of use. Once you use it, you wonder why no one had ever thought of this before.
As a man, what’s your biggest irritant? And even more specifically, what’s the biggest source of irritation in the city you reside? Edge Shave Gel took the time to figure both out.
Today marks the return of Edge Irritation Solutions, a campaign designed to relieve irritations for men one tweet at a time. First launched in 2010, the Edge Irritation Solutions campaign struck a chord with irritated Twitter users around the country by providing clever, real-time irritation relief to people venting their frustrations online.
Edge Shave Gel released the Edge Anti-Irritation Index, a study of geographical influences on irritation that uncovered the most irritating cities for guys in the United States. From high costs of pro sports tickets to lack of available single women, these cities provide men with constant sources of irritation:

Today, check out this cool GIF (submitted via a user on Reddit) that details the growth of the most famous facial hair in the NBA and potentially in the world of sports.
And yes, I’m including Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson in that statement, as his beard has gotten progressively weirder, (detailed nicely by Yahoo here) to the point where it now looks like a muskrat dipped in motor oil.
Electric razors always bring to mind the image of a man in a cheap suit with a poorly tied, generic red necktie shaving in the front seat of his tiny import as he hurriedly makes his way to his job at Megatron Widget, Inc.
It’s sweaty, tight, confined and irritated, and there is nothing he can do about it. The pit stains on his off-white polyester dress shirt prove that to resist is useless.
But this isn’t an electric razor — this is the CoolTec dry shaver from Braun.
If you missed it yesterday, there’s still time to check out the Assassin’s Creed Jackdaw Ship at Comic Con today until 7PM at the 5th Avenue Pier in San Diego.

Men who step up to receive a customized shave will receive Schick Hydro 5 razors and have a chance to win exclusive prizes. Consumers are encouraged to follow @HydroExperience for exclusive Comic Con content and tweet us using #GetMoreBooty.
If ?uestlove and Black Thought from The Roots are into it, you know it has to be legit.
“The Bearded Gentleman: The Style Guide to Shaving Face” piqued my interest in being a man again. Since the divorce, the flame had certainly flickered.
I got my hands on a copy and the book is fantastic. It is the de facto quick reference guide on personal style in relation to facial hair ever created, and I am including “The Bible” in that generalization as well.
“The Bearded Gentleman: The Style Guide to Shaving Face” is the perfect gift for the man in your life, or your mother-in-law who rocks a grey-haired goatee and is seemingly oblivious to it, though it makes everyone else around her so uncomfortable, they can’t even stand to look at her.

There’s a football mistress in my life now, NFL. And, she has a beard.
In case you’re not familiar with the Canadian Football League, it’s a league where you can actually hit the QB and put your head down outside the tackle box.
The CFL season started this past weekend and I invested a serious amount of time into watching it, considering a conversion from the NFL.
Then, it happened – I noticed the beard of B.C. Lions place kicker Hugh O’Neill, pictured above.
And I knew I was home.
Is it a shaving cream? Is it a face wash? The new shaving cream and face wash from Evolution Man is literally both, combined into one.
In a natural progression based on a man’s need for clean skin and an effective shaving cream, Evolution Man was born. If you have to do both anyway, why not just combine them?
