Stay Polish’d Collection: Vol. 1 with Sean Mayers

From months to minutes, as we anticipate the end to another winter season that has showed its fair share of punishment on the Eastern coast. As the “Stay Polish’d” mantra continues to show itself strong within the brand’s ethos and infiltrate your bathrooms & closets, we decided to give a visual glimpse of what’re cooking up for the season. The spring season carries cold fronts, brisk winds, and demos of sunshine that’ll call for trips of confrontation to the beach (possibly). Nonetheless, Groom Guys do what we do best: and that’s deliver 100%. Groom Guys continue to keep the principle of putting your best foot forward neglecting the lionization of mainstream publications that showcase rudimentary images of “style” and “fashion.” Groom Guy (s) carry manhood, healthy morals & principles, and critical observation as the very DNA of the brand’s existence.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with the dangerously dapper and intelligent Sean Mayers, The Gentlemens Lounge. The New Jersey native has established quite a reputation as a “vintage stylistic architect gathering pieces of heritage, history, class within his portfolio. That was enough for me and camera hit maker Marcus to arrange some time on grey day in Washington D.C. & premiere our collection series. Behind the camera, we had an opportunity to discuss some stylistic details that often overlooked including accessorizing your outfits, introducing fragrances to our repertoire, and Sean educating me on multiple approaches to wearing a scarf and many more (and where Sean obtained that fly hat). Together, we are: The Groomed Gentlemen.

Funky Grooming Habits to Retire This Spring (Part 1)

We’re moments away from kissing the winter cold goodbye. It’s about that time to dump those wool sweater / jackets into storage and retrieve those windbreakers. But its in the midst of the seasonal wardrobe change, your grooming routine needs the same, if not MORE, love and attention. Remember when you promised yourself you’d do a better job this year? Well, here’s your shot!

But before we welcome all the and exciting products to stock up on, I had to make sure your aware of the foolish habits that have to be recycled this spring. Out with the old…..and just STAY OUT!

Trim down the body hair

It was probably cute in the beginning. You had your date really getting amused twisting your body hair but now its about that time. The more body hair you keep on during this season is a welcome ticket to sweat and body odor especially if you’re juggling an alleged athletic schedule. So be sure to trim in all places (including in your basement). Trust me, she’ll thank you later. The Wahl Hero trimmer is one I keep in my personal arsenal and absolutely love! It’s powerful and takes clean all types of air evenly for a valued price.

Be sure to tidy up that facial hair especially my bearded men. Don’t wait until you’ve got Gandalf’s Lord of the Rings beard for a touch up and simply show it some clipper attention every two weeks.

Fingernail takedown

There’s tons of slack that can be given to the elongated fingernails during the winter. We can’t hid in the dark forever. Tis the season to pull out that nail clipper making sure to cut down at least once a week. If you won’t, that day in the sun will reveal it all….all that dirt packed up in your nails. Don’t be that person getting caught trying to remove the dirt from one nail using the other!

C’mon bruh…

Change your toothbrush

Although we can celebrate your toothbrush has been steady since 2015-16, we can also celebrate the amount of germs that have contaminated on the bristles. American Dental Association explains exactly why and also other helpful tips to extend the life of your toothbrush.

In some circumstances, you should replace your toothbrush even if the bristles are not visibly frayed. When you’ve been sick with a cold or flu, or have had a mouth or throat infection, sore throat, or a mouth sore, you should replace your toothbrush even if it’s new. Doing so will help prevent re-exposing yourself or others in your household to germs that could cause an illness.

Replace socks

I’d be lying if I said hole habit in the sock is tolerable and I haven’t done it….because it’s totally not. We set ourselves up for shame once your significant other takes sight of that. It showcases poor effort & showmanship in oneself. It also allows for possible fungal odors as sweat buildup increasing during the warm spring weather. Your winter socks have been thru an mild, odor war. It’s time to give them a facelift with some new 100% cotton love of fresh socks. Don’t be weary of popping your sock game with some color too. A little goes a long way!

Diddy Officially Joins Beard Gang

When he’s not being predicted by Forbes as the first hip hop billionaires or Diddy bopping in his newest music video, Puff Daddy continues to exemplify the true definition of “Renaissance man.” In the midst of his many accomplishments and business ventures, he still finds time to keep his grooming routine on par. He remains as one our groomer spotlights.

He recently appeared pictured with Jay-Z at the Roc Nation party during Grammy weekend this year. Not only were we greeted with his fly salmon color suit but his beard has made its grand return. It looks as though he’s sporting a more natural grow out of his hair as he climbs up the age ladder (5-0 years old in three years). Puffy continues to keep us amused via Instagram of his habitual grooming practices. Either way, he’s aging gracefully and we’re happy to see him join the beard family. Jay-Z take notes…

Below we’ve listed some immediate beard favorites Diddy’s barber may want to introduce him to and you’ll want to get your hands on this upcoming Spring:
