Who made the vintage brooks brothers shaving soaps? I have read a few places on the web where people say Yardley but I can't find anything else to support that.

If anyone knows that would be most appreciated.

Interesting.  I didn't know Brooks Brothers used to sell shaving soap.  Did they also sell shaving brushes?

I don't know who made the soap.  But I cut one of the blocks to fit in a wooden bowl and use it in my rotation.  It makes great lather, very much like that made by vintage Floris and Penhaligon's soaps, and I suspect there may have been a shared manufacturer.
