My dad is the kind of guy who is all about the basics. He loves to squeeze the life out of everything he buys; thrifty and practical is the name of his game. So, it's no surprise that his shaving kit is about as low-maintenance as it gets: "I shave every other day, which has kept the wrinkles off of my face," he said. "I use bar soap, and my brush is very old and nameless. A good quality brush ($35) that lasts is important to me."
