One of the greatest things about creating my own line of beard oils – aside from having an endless supply, tailor made to my liking – is that I get to see how others like them. I’ve been getting amazing feedback on some of the partner sites they’re sold on, like this one:
The last few months of 2015 were crazy busy and fun, and the year closed out strong. The Everyday Gentleman was only in the market about two months. I was fulfilling orders nearly non-stop. It was all beards, all the time.
However, perhaps the most important thing (more than the numbers, units sold or business partnerships made), was hearing how incredibly well-received the beard oils were.
I received a remarkable bit of feedback that came just as 2015 ended. It was a review by Instagram beard oil connoisseur, ibeejohnnybee. I’ll include the full post below, but to be known for “awesome labels, stellar scents and high quality oils” as well as being voted #2 of all the beard oils he’d tried throughout the year was astonishing! I was beyond pleased and it only justifies why I’m doing this in the first place. And it seems I’m doing it right after all.
I’ve always believed we should go beyond ordinary products that don’t live up to our expectations. Go beyond the beard with The Everyday Gentleman.
You’ll smell awesome… and there’s more to come!
The Everyday Gentleman Grooming Oils!
Sure it feels like it’s been 5 years in the making but from conception to bottle, it’s only been a couple of weeks. Sure, they’ve been intense. But always exciting. Now, they’re finally ready.
These products are high quality, authentic and smell awesome. Oh and they’re not just for beards. They’re moisturizing and unique; and yes, great for all hair types (and facial hair styles).
I’ve come up with three fantastic recipes. I think you’ll like ’em and I’ll encourage you to check them out…
There’s NOBLE: Unapologetic and decidedly fresh…
MONOCLE: Stays wonderfully intriguing throughout the day…
…and MAVERICK: Lively, but never aggressive 😉
I take my grooming seriously and I do it with pride. I want you to do the same. These oils are not just for beards. Go beyond the norm and of what’s expected. Go beyond the beard.

So, it’s been a while since my last post. Not that I expected time to have stood still… Things have been busy – and am about to announce a new venture I’m launching.
Stay tuned for something brand new… Something that ties together the things The Everyday Gentleman has stood for over the past 5 years.. and more.
Everything we do / Everything we say / and create / Everything we feel / and even imply / is Important
History may have a way of documenting things
But the Universe has its own way of acknowledging them
So goes the introduction to the latest issue of my zine, Velocitylab. And at this point, I feel truer words could not be spoken. Or written. Interestingly enough, each introduction of every issue of the zine speaks volumes to what is happening at the moment of its publication; this one echoes what is happening throughout.
Velocitylab No6 is out now. Full of interesting interviews with bands – some you may know, some you may just be hearing about now – as well as some amazingly talented artists who contribute to this issue.
Check it out here: VELOCITYLAB No6
Hope you enjoy —
As I work on the next issue of VELOCITYLAB, I’ve been giving the site some thought. Is there enough? Could there be more? Less? Better? Worse?
You get the idea. Keep improving. Learning. Listening. Sharing.
Enter: the newly revamped Velocitylab Interviews page. Check it out – and above all…. Hope you enjoy it! Read about them all and support them; listen some more…

It’s been a while since my last post here, I know. Well, at least it feels like it has been. In the meantime, I have been busy at work on the latest issue of my zine, Velocitylab. I’m already up to No5 and it seems it’s only getting better each time.
With this issue, I’ve interviewed some incredible bands (The Deer Tracks, Watch Commander, Jean Jacket, Blue Hawaii, Twintapes, Lungs and Justin Soileau,) and have collaborated with artists, while other artists contributed their own original pieces. I’ll try to update you all as much as possible. Hope you enjoy… and head on over to Velocitylab now for your very own limited edition copy.
Choose red or yellow.. reminiscent of the old Art of Kissing and How to Make Love books of the 1930’s. Enjoy!
The words themselves wedge us between sweating bodies pulsating to the same beat. Well, this time it might mean you have to dig a little deeper, since what I’m about to share goes there. Sweat. Dance. As long as you’re feeling this.
A while ago I eluded to an upcoming remix that I had been working on. Well, the time for its release has come. Check it out below. It’s about to be released on double-CD soon. Here’s yr chance to be among the first!
And if you want to know more about this remix as well as this band (who has a rich history!) check out VELOCITYLAB No4: http://velocitylab.net/remixingTVIF
And most importantly, feel something deep. Something important. And enjoy.
