Okay, granted - this is normally a shaving blog but I came across a deal that I simply had to share (after I secured my own, that is). I'm sure you're all familiar with Land's End - they make very high quality stuff with a great warranty (similar to L.L. Bean and J. Crew). I swear by all three of them. Anyway, for today only - get 50% any one item by using code CHERISH/8075. Of course, the first thing that came to mind is this Men's Cashmere Aran Crew Sweater that normally goes for $398. Hey, it's cashmere - and the best available, no less. Use the code and save $199. YOLO, right? Can't wait for this #MailCall.
Another week, another shaving #drama. This time it's centered around a soap-only release from Barrister and Mann called Passiflora - the rub being that it was to be offered exclusively to the Shaving Shop Club membership. In principle, it sounds as though it should've gone as planned. But of course you know that's never a given... Little did we know what would go down as another infamous implosion.
Unfortunately another vendor is leaving us today, this time it's Badger Shaving Co. hailing from Vancouver, Canada. The owner, Travis McDonald released the statement (seen below) in the Facebook group Canadian Wet Shavers. Until it's all gone - enjoy 30% off of everything using the code "FAREWELL" at checkout. No #drama - just sadness.
As you can see from the map above, the east coast of America as well as a good chunk of the west... Has been affected by a huge DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack on Dyn which provides DNS (Domain Name Service) for hundreds and hundreds of sites. This affects sites such as Shopify and Etsy, which a lot of shaving artisans and vendors (such as B&M, PAA and K Shave Worx to name a tiny few - full list below) rely on to host their eCommerce sites. Likewise, you can't pay for anything using PayPal for the same reason. Some Friday #drama for y'all. It started at 7am EST and was thought resolved, but is clearly ongoing. Check out downdetector.com to see just how bad it is.
