• Mr & Mrs Doom Present Merlin's Beard Products

    We've been talking about opening a shop in Edinburgh for a while now. As it stands, a physical shop will not be in existence this side of Christmas (opening a new shop is somewhat difficult), but that doesn't mean its not happening, and it also doesn't mean we are not pushing forward. On the 1st December we will be launching the Mr & Mrs Doom website, where all the products we love will be stocked and available to order.

    Let's give you a bit of an idea of what we will be doing. Imagine Shrewd with a twist. A mixture of vintage, great reproduction and independent brands, including streetwear by CRMC. Pretty exciting.

    One of the independents we will be stocking, and are already showcasing here at Shrewd are Merlin's Beard Products. Run by Rob & Chris, possibly the nicest and most accommodating folk we have ever had the pleasure of working with (even if it is long distance - they are based in Illinois). We first made their acquaintance when we ordered the Groomsmen wedding favour beard wax from them, and their customer service is second to none. Not only did they make us a custom label for our wedding, they have also made one for our stock. Chris & Rob are our kind of bearded men, starting a company out of the need for something awesome and working towards making that their full-time occupation. They seem to enjoy the same nice things in life that we do (whiskey, friends and family), so sometime in the future we hope to have a proper catch up with them.

    At Vintage Shrewd, as of today, we have their awesome beard wax, which comes in Peppermint, Natural and Spiced (Spiced smells like Christmas in a beard) and Beard Oil in stock, just in case you can't wait until we launch in a couple of short weeks.

    Also as of today, our Facebook page is also active, and you can follow our progress and updates via the usual social media pages. Whilst you're there, give the Merlin guys a follow too!
