Normally, we aren't much for the old-fashioned barber experience; it tends to feel a little, well, antiquated. But we changed our tune when we discovered this Tennyson Street throwback and its modern take on the barbershop tradition—the stylists and patrons are younger and hipper than we expected, and tattoos abound. Whether you're getting the perfect trim, a buzz cut, or a soothing straight-razor shave, Proper offers a welcome respite for men to hang out, shoot the breeze, and leave refreshed and looking suave.
On this choice we agree. Now we just need to make an appointment (do it yourself online) with master barber Jordan Weinstein, whom our readers seem to adore.
