I got this awhile back and though it isn’t perfect it is a fantastic set. I just imagine what it would have been like to throw this set in a bag and head out on a business trip. Being one who travels often myself it would have been pretty perfect. This beautiful TTO was loaded up with a Gillette Platinum today.

    Soap of the day you ask?...Stirling Executive Man of course! One of my favourites and tops on the list with the newly acquired Stirling Sharp Dressed Man. So good.

    Lathered up with the Yaki SF and thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful three pass BBS shave. Topped it off with two spritz (I know, rebel!) of English Laundry London which is a perfect compliment to the Executive Man AS. Truly a shave fit for an Executive! Happy shaves all!

    Picked up my first British Aristocrat, 2nd gen #15 (I think), 1948ish (I think), really nice condition. Read through some or most of the Aristocrat ID threads here and mr-razor site and I think I am in the ballpark. Regardless, I really like this now that I have it in my hands, will sanitize it, and use it for my next shave.
