The bearded gent is seen as more of a lifestyle choice rather than a fashion trend these days. But let’s not forget behind every great beard are great products to keep it in shape, conditioned and feeling fresh. It gives me huge pleasure to bring you the 4th instalment of our “Meet the Brand” series.
For this edition we have only gone and got in the Captain! Yes that’s right, we are pleased to have the man behind the beard, Captain Fawcett, answering our questions.
Captain Fawcett – Answered by The Captain (Founder)
Tell us a bit about the brand?

The great adventurers of yesteryear.
In 3 words describe your products?
Simply the Best…
What is your vision for the brand?
Developing a complete range of First Class Gentleman’s Grooming Requisites.

Beautifully presented, quality with a hint of panache.
What is your beard routine?
Brush gently with a real bristle brush before adding a few drops of the Captain’s ‘Private Stock’ exquisite Beard Oil.
How much of a positive impact can it make by implementing a beard oil into your routine?
Using the Captain’s Beard Oil will make a huge difference in both your beards appearance and condition.

Careful nurture and gentle persuasion avoiding direct heat (hair dryer, tongs) at all costs.
