If you missed out on last year's Barrister and Mann Hallows release, now's your chance! The improvements by #BarristerMann include awesome new packaging, artwork and the soap is in the new glissant formulation!
After the difficulties that plagued our 2015 release of Hallows, Barrister and Mann decided that something must be done. We want to make sure that everyone who wishes to purchase some is able to do so. As such, we have decided to offer Hallows for pre-sale in order to meet the historically overwhelming demand for the product.
Unlike our previous pre-sale programs, the ordering period for Hallows will span a full two weeks and will end at 11:59 pm on Monday, September 5th, 2016. There will be no limit on the quantities available for purchase, and we will make as many soaps, aftershaves, and t-shirts as necessary to fully meet demand. Pre-orders placed during this period will not ship until the week of October 10th.
Hallows will stand alone as the sole Barrister and Mann Limited Edition soap to undergo a packaging redesign using our new, heavier jars (black ones this time) and labeling style. The soap will be offered in the Glissant base only, and the aftershave, which cannot be shipped outside of the United States, will use our alcohol-based Tonique formula.
Additionally, all of our retailers who request stock will receive Hallows soap and aftershave (but not t-shirts) for retail sale. This means that Italian Barber and Badger Shaving Co. will be able to ship the aftershave internationally, and The Stray Whisker in Australia will receive stock to accommodate our customers Down Under. We will also be releasing an additional 150 jars of soap and 90 bottles of aftershave for sale on our own website at midnight on October 22nd, 2016, which is the midnight following Friday, October 21st.
Finally, we’re offering two t-shirt designs for 2016. For those who missed out on our 2015 t-shirt, we will be offering these shirts free with a Hallows purchase of $100 or more (note that this will also include free shipping within the United States). We will also be offering a new t-shirt bearing our 2016 Hallows artwork, which will retail for $10 each for all sizes.
This will be our last pre-sale for 2016, and is unquestionably the one about which we are the most excited. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions. Happy early Halloween!
Now that Hallows has been released, I've added a half dozen images to the gallery for the 2016 artwork and products for posterity.
If you missed out on this year's pre-order, do not despair...
