Hello Friends,

While some of you may already know, I wanted to take a moment and share that I have retired from Above the Tie.
In January, my son-in-law Matt accepted responsibilities concerning the business. Above the Tie is in great hands. The dedication to service and quality has never been better.
I have had a wonderful business experience, but most importantly I have enjoyed getting to know all of you. I feel like I have an extended global family. Clearly, my life has been made richer from interaction with each and every one of you. All of you have played a role in making this little family business in the foothills of Tennessee known around the world.
It is my hope the razors I have designed continue to provide pleasure and enjoyment to wet shavers each day. In fact, my hope is that many years from now, these same razors will still be providing nice results to their “new” owners. It has been a pleasure and an honor to have been a part of this community, and I hope any small impact I may have had was a positive one.
As for me I feel great and will enjoy my new found freedom. This is my second retirement—first health care and now business. Who knows, in time I may start dabbling in something new.
Regardless there will be plenty of good times traveling, reading, playing guitar and of course having the grand-kids over.  Life is good.
God bless,
Stan

Stan, hearty congratulations to you! They say retirement is a beautiful thing and from what you’ve indicated it looks like you’re going to rock your life of leisure. Enjoy your family, travels and guitars. And to quote the great Warren Zevon, “Enjoy every sandwich!”

Thank you for all you do, Stan. I’ll treasure my multiple ATT razors forever. And I’ll not forget the unsurpassed customer service, either. It must be rewarding to hand off the baton to a family member, who presumably has learned a great deal from the master. Carry on, Matt!
