Shaving stuff
April 11, 2005 6:38 PM   Subscribe

Is there a barbershop (or other shop) in Boston or Cambridge, MA where I can buy 'real' shaving stuff--e.g., Trumper's shaving cream or shaving soap?

I've been to Leavitt and Pierce in Harvard Square, and I know Crabtree and Evelyn and The Body Shop have house brands--but is there anywhere I can pick up any of the awesome shaving soap / shaving cream / aftershave stuff that is of Trumper quality? I'm doing the whole shaving brush / safety razor thing and it's awesome, but I need a shaving supply refill and would prefer not to go through the mail.

Maybe Gregory's Barbershop?

I can't help you with Boston, but I would recommend The Art of Shaving, if you're ever down in NYC.

Leavitt and Pierce is a cool funky store, but I'm a real fan of Taylor of Old Bond Street in London, particularly their shaving cream that comes in little tubs and is used with a brush. Very good on the skin. They have a web site.

Colonial Drug in Harvard Square (49 Brattle Street) carries hard-to-find, European perfumes, colognes, shaving products, etc.

Also, check out Fresh, 121 Newbury Street and L'Occitane, 179 Newbury Street or in The Prudential Center on Boylston Street.

You might check out Blade Barber Shop. It's in the 500's of Tremont in the South End. Have a gay old time.
