Old-School Motorcycles and Shaves in Lakeview

It’s Monday. The week ahead is just one big open road of possibility.

Now, let’s get you suited up for the journey.

Welcome to Isle of Man, a storehouse of classic cool in West Lakeview with everything you need for any given situation... and, better yet, some things you don’t.

Think of this place when you need a few basics for your next overnight trip: a badger-hair shaving brush, a framed vintage Penthouse cover... a vintage motorcycle.

You’ll walk into a musty, library-styled space that looks like what would happen if Wild One-era Brando opened a men’s shop. Then, you can start browsing for such essential nonessentials as turn-of-the-century steamer trunks, high-carbon steel butcher knives and a 1920s ball-and-chain from Louisiana’s Angola Prison, perfect for revitalizing that men’s ankle jewelry trend.

And because no trip to an old-school motorcycle shop is complete without an old-school straight-razor shave, you can book their by-appointment-only barber. You’ll be escorted to an old-time barber’s chair in the back, and soon your face will be ensconced in a series of eight steaming-hot towels to soften your skin.

We hear Brando would tap out after seven.
