It’s not about making sure every hair on your head is just so; it’s not about making sure you have only the finest badger hair brush; nor is it about only using a double edge razor. That’s just pretentiousness. While there are some serious cognizable benefits to some of these aspects of grooming, it’s important to remember why you do them in the first place.

If you’re shaving with a double edge razor and hate it–stop. Continuing on because it’s what blogs and grooming reviewers declared as “manly,” then you’re either hanging with the wrong crowd or you’re missing something.

What’s manly about all this is self-presentation, confidence, and health.
