    We need more BeardPat! He is ROCKING that facial hair.
  • @shaggy1881
    As a follow-up to this episode, you should do shaving cream vs shaving gel vs shaving foam vs dry shave. Also aftershave vs aftershave lotion vs nothing.
  • @rreagan007
    Pro tip: If you dry off the blades after you use them they last about 20 times as long as if you put them away wet. Most of the deterioration of razor blades is from microrust along the cutting edge from water being left on them.
  • Matt should probably take this as a sign that he should bring more of the crew into the spotlight. They risked their beards for the chance to be on camera 😭😂😅
  • @ChaosAC24
    It’s wild that the barber you went to didn’t know how to use a straight razor. My barber and quite a few barbers I know easily use them for facial hair and fades during most haircuts/shaves. They use them very well too. Great video!
  • Hey Matpat, speaking of shaving, there’s an idea that shaving your armpits makes them less smelly, but is that actually true and does it even matter if you use deodorant?

    I'm 25 years old and have been shaving for about 8 years. I used to use the Gillette 5-bladed blades for about 5 years, but then I changed to the Philips OneBlade and it changed my life, or at least the shaving part of it. It's so smooth and the fact it doubles as a trimmer only makes it better! Love using it and I don't think I'll ever change. Thanks for the video MatPat and the other guys!

    Been shaving with a straight razor for over 10 years. It’s super easy and way better than any shave on that list. Not to mention I haven’t paid for a shave in 10 years
  • I hope you guys eventually do a follow up focusing on different types of shaving cream and after shave. I swear after shave doesn't actually do anything at all
  • I've always had an issue with multibladed razors as when my shave is too close I'll get a ton of in-grown hairs because they shave to the point that it's under the skin.
  • @gurgus
    As a dude who’s face is so sensitive I’ll get razor burn from anything. I learned how to do the straight razor shave to myself for my cheek and chin lines and a single blade shaver for my neck. I have not had bad razor burn in years!
  • Before growing a full beard i used to shave with a straight razor every/every other day and i have found that if you hesitate you get a cut, you just gotta commit to the shave and for me at least its a much closer and less irritated shave than with other types and i have tried all of them with different products
  • @zperk13
    I definitely agree with the end thing. I'm 21 and I avoid clean shaves because I look freaking 17 when I do
  • I went form normal razor to electric to safety. All in all I prefer safety, but there’s a learning curve. In the end it’s a much smoother and closer shave
  • @stix2706
    I feel like based on the theorist squad we need a "how to grow more facial hair" style theory
  • @juanitosay
    This is the best undercover commercial ever!
  • I would love a version of this episode for women because I desperatly want to know how to make shaving myself more efficent, so it doesn't take an hour or more to shave because I'm not shaving every day or every other day. Also I would love the episode to anwser how often should you shave and should you shave in the shower or bath or somewhere else. I know that this would be a lot of ground to cover, but I(and I belive many others) would find it extremely helpful and eye opening.

    Hold up, an actual video worth watching from the style theory channel? I’m happy there’s finally something for me, this is a gem
