What is your preferred 3 pass shave?

WTG, XTD, ATG or ?

I usually go wtg/atg/xtg, because of the way my hair grows that order works better for me than the standard wtg/xtg/atg. My xtg pass is really just a clean up pass. Every once in a while, if I'm having issues I'll go wtg/xtg/wtg, but that only happens when my skin isn't happy, but two passes isn't enough.

WTG/XTG hybrid
ATG
Touch up if needed

One quantum leap in the quality of shaves for me was when I discovered:

-it was necessary to be knowledgeable of the grain of my beard
-to not be too regimented in a given pass
-fewer passes equals less (or better, no) irritation

I pretty much go WTG, ATG, XTG as well. I go North->South, then South->North and touch up with right->left. I make a few exceptions.. I usually go across under the nose instead of South->North and sometimes I do the same below my mouth.

I follow the standard WTG, XTG, & ATG. I can get a really comfortable shave with little no irritation if I limit the touch up and try to keep it to one pass. Some good comments from kentclark above.

I learned to be content with the "imperfection" of a Darn Fine Shave as compared to a Baby Butt Smooth Shave.

I have learned that if I start with a South to North XTG pass everything goes much smoother. So it goes like this:

XTG Diagonal Ear to chin
(ATG on my jawline with skin taut)
XTG diagonal chin to ear
XTG Diagonal Ear to chin
Touchups...BBS

Same here. Because of the odd growth pattern of my beard below the jawline, I need to go WTG, ATG and then use XTG for touch ups.
