Shaving in Style - part V

D.R. Harris English Ivorine Shave Brush Holder (LEO Design)

Another classic (and long carried) vendor at LEO Design is D.R. Harris from London. Founded in 1790—when barbering and medicine were nearly one and the same—D.R. Harris has been serving stylish Londoners for over two centuries. For the next few days we will show a sampling of our D.R. Harris range.

As previously noted, a good badger shave brush should last a man most of his shaving lifetime—as long as the instrument is stored bristles down (for proper drainage). This modest Ivorine shave brush holder will store and protect your shaving brush.  It will stand on a flat surface or can be attached to the wall with foam tape. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More D.R. Harris products tomorrow.
