Facial hair aficionados Ruffians have teamed up with leading razor brand Dorco, using their Pace 6 Plus to create five ultimate looks to ensure you’re raising hairs this Halloween.

Make sure as well as your spook-takular costume, you creep it real with your facial hair game. Whether you’re looking to sport a ferocious mane, carefully styled goatee or a devilish tuft of hair on the chin – your facial fuzz is the perfect extension to your outfit and we’ve got you covered. After all, a good barber is a man’s best friend…

Channel your inner Wolverine and let your beard run wild and free. Use the 6 blades at random to keep the hair looking choppy and the trimmer blade to add extra definition. Combs are out, big and bushy is most certainly in!

  • Start with a full beard to pull off this look.
  • Apply a thick layer of shaving foam to the face, trim down the moustache and shave off all neck hair.
  • Use the trimmer blade at the back of the razor to remove cheek hair, keeping most of the beard along the jawline. Next, shave an inverted triangle into the chin area.
  • Backcomb your hair, and dress with Wolverine claws and a ripped white vest (or shirtless if you’ve got the abs to pull in off!) to complete the look.

They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky… get your moustache in check this Halloween, Gomez Addams style using the nifty trimmer – perfect for all those tricky areas!
  • You’ll need a ‘tache for this one! 
  • Apply a thick layer of shaving foam to the face.
  • Remove all facial hair, keeping only a moustache above the upper lip.
  • Using the trimmer blade remove hair from the top of the moustache, creating a thin, long line of hair - pencil in with black liner for extra definition!
  • Finally, slick your hair back and throw on a dark bow-tie to really give you the edge.

Proving you don’t always have to be loud and proud, recreate silent comic actor Charlie Chaplin’s iconic ‘tache. Offering a true one stroke shaving solution, Dorco Pace 6 Plus glides effortlessly across your face to keep the fuzz above your upper lip.
  • A fuzzy upper lip is needed to nail this one.
  • Start by trimming down any stray beard hairs before coating the face in shaving foam
  • Clean shave the entire face, keeping only hair above the upper lip.
  • Using the trimmer blade, shave the ends of the moustache – your moustache should look thick and short! Fill in with dark eyeshadow to create a fuller look.
  • Whack on some eyeliner, adopt a dopey expression and black bowler hat and voila!

James Bond is the ultimate dude. A ladies man with not a single hair out of place, Dorco Pace 6 Plus will make sure you’re ready for whatever obstacles stand in your way. A combination of Vitamin E, Aloe and Lavender Oil makes Dorco perfect for a full-scale wet shave and will keep skin smoother than a baby’s bottom.
  • The quickest and easiest of the lot, this look is easily achievable no matter how much face fluff you own.
  • Coat the whole face in shaving foam and remove all hair, including the neck. Don’t forget to moisturise afterwards!
  • With a sharp suit and an air of mystery, you’ll be fighting them off in no time.

Sail the seven seas as Captain Jack Sparrow and embrace the plaited beard and jewels in abundance. Whilst you’re at it, gain full control with the non-slip rubber handle as you master the rough and ready look.

  • The more facial hair the better in this case!
  • Cover the mid to upper cheeks in shaving foam and remove all hair. Keep the majority of the beard across the jawline and on the chin – think thick and fuzzy!
  • If your beard can go the mile, separate it in half and make two plaits, adding a bead on the end. If your beard can’t, stick two plait extensions onto the chin using eyelash glue – works a treat!
  • Tie a bandana around the head, add jewellery and pull out any remaining hairs to ensure a rugged look

Hemingsworth, the new luxury British menswear label, has just unveiled its debut collection of shorts designed for adventures on land and sea. 

Impeccably crafted by English tailors in London, the Hemingsworth 'Clipper' collection features eight stylish short designs. Every pair have been designed to allow for maximum comfort and all-day wear, making them a truly versatile garment that can take the adventurous modern man from the sea to socialising. 

Inspired by the timelessness and durability of 19th century British racing ships, the 'Clipper' collection utilises lightweight seersucker and cotton-blend fabrics. Hemingsworth believes true quality is revealed in the details, which is why its buttons are carefully crafted from Tahitian Mother of Pearl, zips are made to order in Italy by Lampo, and buckles are cast and finished in Germany to the highest specification. It is this attention to detail that elevates Hemingsworth shorts into a space that hasn't been occupied before. 

The shorts blend traditional yarns with the latest modern fibres for a feel that is reminiscent of soft cotton with the advantage of being quick drying. Every pair are chlorine, salt water, light, rub, shrink and colour tested. 

Matt Jones, founder of Hemingsworth, said, “I wanted to create a versatile short that has some of the most renowned features of a tailored suit that today's modern man would appreciate – impeccable tailoring and supreme comfort with details like an integral hidden adjustable waistband and French fly – ensuring they can actually be worn and enjoyed all day. The Hemingsworth man appreciates the finer details in life, but he doesn’t want to obsess over wardrobe changes”. 

The debut Hemingsworth collection is available now priced from £180.00, in sizes 30-38" and in eight styles and classic colours: Sharkfin, Light Blue, Navy, Yellow, White and Seer Sucker (Pink, Blue & Green). For additional information please visit www.hemingsworth.com.

New Relationship Underscores Gillette’s Commitment to Supporting Men in Achieving Their Best As They Rise to the Top of Their Game.

Gillette®, the world’s leading male grooming brand, today presented a global partnership with Futbol Club Barcelona (FCB). With the shared belief that there are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going, the new relationship solidifies their shared commitment to helping groom the next generation. As a premium partner, Gillette aims to celebrate the role precision plays in putting men on the path to victory, both on and off the pitch.

As one of the best clubs in the world, FCB is unyielding in its commitment to identifying and developing the greatest players from the start, cultivating their skills on the pitch and, as the best a man can get, Gillette relentlessly pursues the creation of high quality, high value razors honed to the finest edge and detail. For both, precision is a core value in helping groom the next generation as they achieve their best. Building on the momentum of an exclusive partnership in Latin America, the expanded partnership now brings the collaboration to the global stage.

Gillette has spent over a century refining and engineering down to the microscopic razor’s edge so that every man can have the advantage of its unparalleled precision. “Partnering with FC Barcelona was a natural fit for Gillette, as both organizations share similar core values—precision being one of them—in our respective pursuits to being the best in the world,” said Francesco Tortora, Gillette global brand director. “We’re excited to promote the world’s most popular sport, while giving fans more opportunities to take part in something they love.”

FCB, one of the most successful teams in the world, values the role precision plays on the pitch, but also when identifying and developing its talent. “As an organization, precision is a key part of our DNA, and honing our skills has enabled us to stay on top as one of the most victorious clubs in the world,” said Manel Arroyo, vice president and director responsible for the area of marketing and communication. “Like Gillette, we believe that even a millimeter can make the difference, and precise play can result in executing a match winning goal or in defeat.”

In addition to its support of FC Barcelona, Gillette is teaming up with one of the club’s star player Neymar Jr. to highlight humorous moments when guys realize their current actions just won’t cut it any more – in life and in shaving. Neymar Jr. is using his own Twitter account to share funny, exaggerated photos of himself before he stepped up, inspiring guys all around the world to look back on their old habits with good humor and realize how far they’ve come.

Neymar Jr. is a global ambassador for Gillette, most recently helping to support the brand’s Rio 2016 Olympic Games campaign, “Perfect Isn’t Pretty.”

Precision Moments on the Pitch

Epilate, trim and shave every part of your body to perfection with the latest men's body grooming kit by Braun

A hairy chest isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially in over 60% of women's eyes, but we'd all have to admit that a tidy, well-groomed hairy torso is a lot more attractive and desirable to most. That's why the body waxing trend is currently on the wane, in favour of a much less painful option - body grooming kits.

Whether it's a trim, shave or complete hair removal that you are after, Braun's new Body Grooming Kit for men is the perfect multi-tasking three-in-one tool to help you achieve much better looking, neater and tidier body. Simply select your function, set the shaver and you're pretty much ready to go. It's that easy!
After trying out the Braun Body Grooming Kit, it is evident that this tool is the most convenient shaver of its kind on the market. As men approach their 30s and 40s, we don't often care about stray body hairs and overgrown areas on our shoulders and arms. Most of us certainly don't seem to care enough for it to warrant a visit to the local waxing parlour. That's why this tool is so effective and handy for guys that are truly on the go. If, like most guys, you prefer to sport a well trimmed and groomed chest, then this grading product is ideal for helping you get that natural look. It's also handy for guys who want to remove hair completely from areas such as their arms, shoulders and pubic region, without having to go through the hassle of booking an appointment at a waxing studio.
