Feeling satisfied after a weekend of the Irish wind blowing through our hair, we’re going to let you know all about Dublin based company Manly Stuff.
Manly Stuff are a growing corner of the web that stock (funnily enough) all the ‘manly stuff’ a lad about town may need to keep him looking fresh, trim and most of all on top form. Stocking a range of masculine accessories and male grooming appliances and products, what they have to offer will take the hassle out of shopping and put the ease into your morning routine.
We’re going to go over a few items that were sent to us by Sean at Manly Stuff to test run, to ensure you guys are fully informed, but also highlight just a flash of what they have to offer. Who doesn’t like a tease…
Also, one for the Dad’s with Father’s Day coming up on 18th June in the UK.
ManlyStuff.ie – reintroducing men to the art of Wet Shaving. At an affordable price.
Feel like a real man again, even if it’s only for 10 minutes of uninterrupted tranquility.
Wet Shaving with a DE Safety Razor is one of life’s simpler pleasures. A Safety Razor provides the best shave known to man (apart from a barber, maybe!). How often these days do we snooze the alarm, get up in a panic, quick shower & a shave, throw on the suit, run for the bus, miss the bus, late for work, miss the meeting, catch up, eat lunch at your desk, leave work late, get home tired, sleep in… rinse and repeat.
Taking the time for a real shave in the morning isn’t just a shave, you’re preparing yourself for the day ahead. Get up earlier, spend the 10 minutes enjoying your morning routine. There is nothing more therapeutic than a good shaving routine.
Manly Stuff buy their razors, brushes, grooming products & accessories in bulk from trusted suppliers in Ireland, the UK, India & China and the USA in some cases.
Manly Stuff’s shaving sets are thoughtfully put together to offer great value and contain everything you’ll need for a fantastic shave.
We tested one of the Men’s Stainless Steel Shaving Set (€34.99) the perfect shaving set for those starting their wet shaving adventure. It consists of a Stainless Steel Safety Razor and a luxury Boar Shaving Brush. This safety razor provides a mild to mid aggressive shave and so is very suited to beginners. The boar shaving brush ensures a thick lather and will exfoliate the skin as you go.
Combine this set with some of the lovely soaps (explained further down) and you’re ready to start enjoying shaving again…we completely upgraded our shave and for once enjoyed shaving!
Pre-Shave Oil? Proraso pre shave cream? The perfect post shave balm? The carefully selected array of products are chosen to provide you with the only shaving products you need for the perfect shave. The alum products are perfect for sealing any small nicks, our alum matchsticks for example are great for travel. (These we must say we did not even know about until Manly Stuff sent us them!) They have a great selection of natural shaving products for a price range that includes everyone. The shaving range is perfect for the beginner and wet shaving enthusiast alike. All products are sent in well packaged lovely boxed so rest assured your shaving hoard will arrive safely.
Having Soaps & Shaving creams are a much better alternative than anything that comes from a can. Although the cost may seem higher, in reality and puck of shaving soap will last for months and a cream the same. You’ll need a shaving brush to build a lather but that helps exfoliate your skin anyway so is highly recommended. Manly Stuff try and source their shaving soaps and shaving creams from local artisan producers where possible. They also include a few favourites such as the super Arko and Proraso.
Manly Stuff keep their minimalist watches free of branding, why? Because they look better. All of the Minimalist Watches and Wooden Watches are designed in-house and made using the finest materials. The Minimalist Watches are made from a variety of different woods and metals and are incredibly light, extremely stylish and come with a Japanese Quartz Movement.
Fine Silk Pocket Squares, Cotton Pocket Squares, Wool Pocket Squares, quality and robust ties, minimalist wallets and card holders, tie clips and considering we’ve just returned from Dublin ourselves…travel grooming essentials are all stocked in Manly Stuff’s pocket of the internet.
These are the essentials required for every gentleman and all in one place.
To Sum Up…
Did you know they skip all the expensive branding and marketing and let word of mouth do our work. By selling the products without the brand, they can make it cheaper for you – the customer.
You’d be amazed at how many “luxury” (expensive!) brands buy their products from the same factories Manly Stuff do, but they hike the price by 1000% because they know people will buy them.
Manlystuff.ie is laid out perfectly for a novice shaver to a trained professional it’s easily categorised and allows you to learn whats best for you, develop your shaving knowledge and progress through each stage. The sections and subsections make it a pleasurable visit and easy to navigate for what you want.
With that in mind, the best part about Manly Stuff is that they develop and grow on the customer feedback, in fact they thrive on it. It’s nice to hear that the consumer is thought about from start to finish, don’t you think chaps?
Ask yourself this…picture the scene: you’ve got up a bit blurry eyed, you need to shave before work, you grab your new shaving foam and you start to closely cut the hair back. You then realise you hate the smell and consistency of the foam, its too oily and the razor is blunt as hell! How annoyed are you, leaving the house with toilet paper dots over your face? Not very! ….but that doesn’t matter, because it wouldn’t happen if everything was bought via Manly Stuff.
They want their products to be the best. They spend a lot of time sourcing them from countries far and wide and spend a lot of money in ensuring what you have in your hands is a fantastic product. How do they know what you’re getting is the best? They use them! Everyday. You’re onto a winner chaps!
