For National Shave Day on December 1, 2013, Harry’s is offering free mustache shaves and a limited-edition razor at their Corner Shop in New York. Located in SoHo, the Corner Shop blends a classic feel with modern grooming techniques. The shop was designed as an intimate space that captures the community atmosphere of the traditional barbershop. But its barbers deliver modern cuts, using an iPad app that enables them to record each customer’s cut and preferences. In addition to an exceptional cut or shave, customers can find unique items in the shop, including Makr leather goods, Bitwell motorcycle helmets, Trusco toolboxes and more. If you can’t make it to the Corner Shop on the 1st, check Harry’s website for a participating barbershop in your area.

Gone are the days of being a walking rectangle, what J. Crew is doing with men’s suits is outstanding. Affordable and stylish, their Ludlow Suit is crafted from exquisite fabrics (think Loro Piana) and cut to reflect the modern man’s need to look great without going broke. We recently visited their Ludlow flagship in Tribeca and came out both impressed and well-dressed. Have a look above at what you can expect to see once inside.
If you’re in the market for a suit, this store is the answer.
