crowd

Steve Worthington of BornSharp recently sent me an interesting link: Scruff Is In As Men Shave Less.  I found it interesting not so much because it was about “scruff” but rather the numbers of people who shave.  It got me to wondering how many of “us” (who shave with an “old school” kit of some kind) there are, and how big a market it might be to business.
