    William Powell is one of my favorite leading men from the Golden Era of Hollywood.
    In his movies My Man Godfrey and The Thin Man series his characters were witty, debonair and funny.
    A major part of what gave Powell his debonair look was his mustache.
    If you look at the photograph pictured above of Powell without his mustache he doesn't appear so debonair as he does with his mustache.
    It always such an odd thing to see a man that you are used to seeing with a mustache without one.
    Their faces all of the sudden look so naked and alien compared to what you are used to.

    Today I have gathered together some vintage grooming kits and razor blades to share with you.
    Whether you opt for the clean shaven look or the debonair-the choice is yours!
