I must confess I am something of a connoisseur of the bewhiskered . . . and a Pinterest collector of visual treasures.  Here you go -- you can start a collection of your own!   My love of Steampunk is greatly visual and aesthetic, though also to do with the alternate imaginary timelines, preserved artifacts and architecture of the past, and lost manners and mores.

 I will sneak him into  my pinterest board, possibly tickled under  a costumier or  interior design pin

.... purely for the wallpaper aesthetic and walking cane accessory   of course....

My dear ladies, your dandies may have a fine collection of facial hair, but, they are all just fluff and twaddle when compared to this fine example of manliness.

Not so much a party as I just wanted an excuse to draw on him. I did it again yesterday. He had a stylish muttonchops and bridge.

How about a very fine set of whiskery chops, as sported by Mr Alfred Edynston in Bombay, February 1864..




Or the chops-without-sideburns look sported by this chap in Newport..

Splendidly Steampunk.  But you don't have to use a cutthroat razor, and it is not unmanly to use shaving preparations to avoid bloodshed!

You misunderstand. I don't use them because if I do, I cant see what I'm doing and the symmetrical angles of my facial topiary are ruined and I cant shape a straight line for beans. When I need my baby face, I lather up for hours. It all goes away then. ... I'm a bit CDO with my things.

Looking very smart!

Can I suggest just using normal soap as a shaving lubricant, or one of the shaving oils?  I understand how awkward foam is when shaping comedy facial hair (been there before, now I just go full-face and use clippers and scissors for what shape there is).  Normal bath soap with a little water (or even a drop of shower gel) softens the hairs and helps the blades slide, but doesn't prevent you from seeing what you're doing.

Good shapes on you.  Do consider shaving oils, the Ancient Romans used them.  The derby looks well but it does not have to be pulled down so hard that your eyebrows are hidden.  You might also try a straw boater for the summer.

I tend to use a cut-throat for the big bits (ooer) and then swap to a double edge safety razor for the mutton chops and chin douche-patch.

Proraso do a very nice pre-shave cream that you leave on for ten minutes before you shave but it's a tad pricey.

Oils huh? That might do the trick. Not really a demand for it around these parts (and thus my ignorance) but I'll look for them. I tried soap by-the-by; everything from dove to lava. I have the unfortunate habit of breaking out in large angry patches after.  As for the derby, its not pulled at all. It rests quite comfortably in such a fashion. The hatter woman said that it was an american styled derby and thus sat much lower on the brow. besides, now I can do a smashing clockwork orange impression.
