Retailer/restaurant/barber Freeman’s Sporting Club quietly launched their most ambitious project yet late last month: a bespoke atelier crafting bench-made suits that require a 12 week first-class process, four fittings, and the honed work of a master craftsman.
Our Vermont-based friends at Ursa Major have made it their mission to take care of guys’ faces in an effective, natural, and sustainable way and we think their line of skin care products are terrific. They work great, are packaged well and my shower is not complete without their face wash.
We can’t turn you into Ryan, but we can give you his haircut. Here’s what to tell your barber:
It’s clippered in back halfway up your ears, gradually longer on the sides, and parted with pomade on whichever side your hairline is higher. (Yep, most guys have a good side and a bad one.)
Starting today we’re taking questions from you, our loyal GQ readers. We want to help solve any sartorial or grooming problems you may be having, from finding that perfect summer wedding suit to choosing the right haircut for warmer weather. Tweet us (@GQfashion) with the hashtag #askGQ. Each week we’ll pick a few to take on, and answer on GQ.com. So let ‘em rip. We’re ready for it.
The next time you need a trim, take a cue from our creative director Jim Moore:
“Who doesn’t want to look like Cary Grant, Steve McQueen, or Brad Pitt? Find the best barber in your town, even if it means a little extra cash, and show him this photo.”
