I just got back from London and hit up DR Harris, Trumfet & Hill, Taylor of Old Bond St, Geo F Trumpler, Penhaligons, Czech & Speake, Santa Maria Novella and the Fortnum & Mason Store (great collection on the mens floor) .... WOW!

The past few months I put myself on hiatus from the forum bc I had consolidated my gear to my favorite and really wanted to stop spending so much time / money on shaving.

I made it out of those stores only spending 250 pounds - not bad.

Amazing shaving city!

Shave was pretty good w shavette.

I didn't have my phone with me as I didn't expect to hit the stores when I did, and my phone was charging at the hotel ... duh! I went back on the last day of my trip, however most of the stores were closed (Sunday - the day before bank holiday).

Here are the pics that I got of the outsides of some of the stores:
