LS&B GROOMING: An Introduction

The concept behind Lock Stock & Barrel Grooming is to champion men’s grooming, putting those bedrock principles, long forgotten or yet to be realised back into male grooming. After the lifestyle constraints of the war years men and women were no longer content to live within the confines of enduring class divide. Men and women would engage in new social activities with a new found desire for well-being. Gone were the de-mob suites, lifestyle goods were in strong demand.

As television and movie stars became the icons of the day men of all walks of life took an increasing care in their appearance and grooming rituals. London’s take on fashion and grooming captured the essence of a changing time, the rebirth of men’s grooming had began and for the first time it came from the streets. New found attitudes influenced fashion and trends emerged to reflect this. The Kings Road was the stage and the World it’s audience. A new chapter of British grooming had begun.

WHY THE NAME LOCK STOCK & BARREL?
The term Lock Stock & Barrel, thought to have originated in the 18th century, refers to the three components that make up an early firearm. The components being the lock, referring to the firing mechanism, the stock being the wooden handle and the barrel referring to the actual gun barrel. The term was first recorded in 1817 in the letters of Sir Walter Scott and has since been used to express something in it’s entirety, denoting all, total and everything.
