This week’s looking handsome. Because for $100, you’re getting $150 worth of grooming essentials from the likes of Kiehl’s and Baxter Finley.

You’ve always been a glass-infinitely-half-full type of person. So you’ll want to stop by Mister Collins, which has now gone bottomless on their Laurent-Perrier. Keep your optimism in check, though—they’ll cut you off after an hour. Hey, you know what they say about all good bottomless things...
