Creed’s Green Irish Tweed today, naturally

with 2 comments

SOTD 17 Mar 2015

I had a reader-requested shave lined up, but I could scarcely let St. Patrick’s Day go by with no acknowledgement, and Creed’s Green Irish Tweed seemed to fit the bill. The small white flecks are from dried lather from the tub. The requested shave will be tomorrow.

The brush is a Mühle brush, but I bought it from Shaving.ie, so it also counts, in a way. And of course  IRA did support Nazi Germany, including active support, up to around 1944. It was not so much that the IRA loved Nazi Germany as the idea that “the enemy of my enemy is my  friend,” and of course the IRA had an unremitting hatred toward the British, thus the many IRA terrorist acts.

The lather was, as usual, superb. It really is a very good soap. And the Standard head on the UFO handle was extremely comfortable efficient: BBS in three easy passes, no nicks, no trouble.

A few sprays of Green Irish Tweed EDT as an aftershave, and I’m thinking perhaps I should make corned beef, but what’s up next is lamb curry.
