The Lede: King’s Crown Ultra-Rich Shaving Cream

Kings Crown 1774 Ultra Rich Shaving Cream

When I first experienced King’s Crown during its launch at the 2014 Gentleman’s Expo, I had a good feeling that the bespoke men’s grooming brand was going to strike it big. Its products were handcrafted, there was an actual legacy behind the label and the founders I spoke with were extremely passionate about what they do. The team tossed me a sample of their Ultra-Rich Shaving Cream, and the stuff instantly became one of my medicine cabinet mainstays. The lather goes on as a relatively thin layer that conditions the skin and softens your beard before the razor even touches your face. As you work, essential oils (of the eucalyptus leaf, jojoba seed and tea tree leaf varieties, to name a few) provide a low-drag shave that’s almost completely free of irritation. If it weren’t for the particularly addictive scent, it’s almost like I woke up clean-shaven —

And as far as my girlfriend knows, that’s the truth.

Tune into The Lede, where I write about fashion finds and other stuff that interests me.

Know what's #AlwaysClassic? Lazy Sunday walks through the park. Simple, casual style. Warm sunshine on your face. Doesn't get better than that. Thank you @reebokclassicca for the fresh pair of spring sneaks. #HamOnt #ootd #wiwt #style #menswear #reebokclassic Spring fling. 🌷 #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #style #fashion #menswear #hamont #springtide #styleblogger Was feelin' the love at #LoveLocke. First stop: @delirious_burger_co for a cheeseburger. (All hail the return of the classic burger counter!) Then @donutmonsterhamilton for a grab-bag six-pack of mystery donuts. A visit to @shopkitsu and a few others - how awesome was it seeing the whole 'hood mobilizing to support local? See ya soon, @lockestshops. #HamOnt #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #menswear #styleblogger #style #fashion The latest experiment by @meritbrewing is Raspberry Brownie Nowhere Imperial Stout... quite the experience from start to finish! First sip delivered strong raspberry acidity with a boozy kick - honestly, Tylenol was the first thing that came to mind. How's that for nostalgia? The flavours quickly mellowed into a sweet berry liqueur as the dark chocolatey notes emerged, fulfilling its delicious promise. (And boy did I enjoy the rest of my night thanks to its hefty 9.6 ABV.) #hamont #beerporn #instabeer #craftbeer #beertography #stout #ontariocraftbeer #cheers Back on the road. It feels like close to a year since I've last run - life comes at you pretty fast. Let's just say it felt great! #running #hamont #gagepark #runhamont Tonight's armchair sipper. Roasted malts and earthy hops imbue it with a richness reminiscent of South American coffee. I have yet to make the pilgrimmage to @cliffordbrewing's new East End location, but I can tell you it'll be soon! (And for more of this heavenly stuff.) #HamOnt #beer #beerporn #instabeer #craftbeer #cliffordbrewing #ontariocraftbeer #drinklocal
