Hello all!

I've been wet shaving for the better part of 3 years now.  I used to go days without shaving just because the cartridge razors would leave me with terrible razor burn and ingrown hairs.  Thanks to wet shaving and using a DE, I've been getting great shaves, with minimal irritation on my sensitive skin.  I started off with "highly rated" items off of Amazon, which started me off with the terrible Escali badger brush and a bunch of hard to lather soaps.  Luckily, I looked at forums and am finally using great quality artisan soaps and a SOC boar that I love.  

I've slowed down my buying of soaps since I don't think I'll be able to use them all, but have started buying more aftershaves (now I'm in the same boat with the AS).  Anyone know of good subsitute for Strop Shoppes Debonair AS?  Or know of a EdT that is very similar to it?

Enjoy your shaves!

Welcome the the forum. I fear your proximity to BULLGOOSE will make a shambles of your intent to slow down. It's O.K. To paraphrase the chess Queen 'More! more! to get a good shave one must buy as much as one can, and to get a great shave twice as much as that'.
