Going to the Barber is More than Just a Haircut

Going to the Barber is More than Just a Haircut

When was the last time you had a real discussion with other men?


(And no, social media doesn't count)...

I mean talking in person, face to face, about things that actually matter...not just water cooler pleasantries or idle chit chat.

One of the things I think we have lost in today’s culture is the ability to converse; to have civil discourse or debate. Unfortunately, we've even seemed to have forgotten the craft of storytelling as well. The ability to communicate ideas has been the driving factor in our development as a society. It was through the invention and evolution of language that we have progressed this far. So, it is little wonder that without this crucial skill, things are in their current state.

But what if there was a place to resurrect this dying art?

Not long ago, the barbershop was the open forum for thought and discussion. It was not only a place to attend to one's grooming needs, it was also where men could debate the topics of the time. A place to exchange thoughts and ideas, to test the strength of his premises and formulate new ones if they were proven weak. It is in the spirit of this tradition that we have partnered with our friends, Vincent Vargas and Throwbacks Barber Company, to bring you a new series called "Man Behind the Cut".


In it, we feature sit down discussions, man to man, just like in the barbershops of old. You can watch the first episode below, where I chat with Vince about fatherhood, the highs and lows of my fighting career, and how being a Savage Gentleman fits into our modern society. We're hoping to continue these as a regular part of our podcast, so if there's anyone who you'd like to see us have in the barber chair, please let me know in the comments!

The path that has led me here certainly wasn’t the easiest one, though I don’t think I would change much even if I could. Because it took deeply exploring one side of me to recognize another part of me had been neglected...

As men of the world, we often feel the need to give advice to those we think may need it. This is perfectly fine and in fact, it is something that is encouraged within the League of Savage Gentlemen. But occasionally, our nuggets of wisdom seem to fall on deaf ears...

There seems to be this impression that there are wolves at the gate regarding masculinity. To me, it feels like a mangy raccoon that is more of an annoyance than anything. Sure, it might get into the trash and there is a small possibility it could have rabies. But is it really something we should fear?
