|Barbering chair I sat in today in the not-so-fashionable barber shop I frequent in the fashionable Pearl District.|
In the Hawthorne district I've passed The Modern Man Barber Shop a few times. This is a place where the barbers wear a starched collared shirt, sleeve garters and a vest or apron. Patrons can drink whiskey while having a hot towel shave, apparently free to rant about the Harrison Administration and the Pan American Union.
Both times I've passed this place, admittedly during non-peak hours, I've seen the employees conversing with one another with nary a customer in sight.
I don't think locals will stop crafting beer or making artisanal bread, but some shark has been jumped with the mustache wax.
