#2054 Today in New York: I got a cut throat razor shave for Movember

I'm a guy who likes to put his money where his mouth is, but I have been talking up going to an old school barber shop for a wet shave for years, and I've never actually had the gonads to go through with it. Today I grew a pair and got it done. I was inspired by the fine gentleman of Park & Bond – including perennial beard-wearers Peskowitz, Flint and Evans – who were shaved at Blind Barber last night in an effort to raise money for Movember. It's been a couple of years since I took part in Movember, but it's a cause that's particularly significant to me – my grandfather died from prostate cancer in 2007, and he was the greatest man I've ever known. So for the next four weeks, I'll be attempting to grow and cultivate the most luxurious moustache possible for chaaaaaaaaarity. If you'd like to donate, CLICK HERE. And for the record, the wet shave was quite an interesting experience, but I literally got cut 15 times. It's hard out there for a thug.
