Brother Can you Spare a Shave? Q Brothers Opens in Lincoln Square, Chicago

Merz Apothecary is a Chicago institution—a family-owned pharmacy and sundries store open since 1875.This past Dec. 1, the Qaiyum brothers— all grooming aficionados—opened Q Brothers – The Men’s Shop adjoining the Merz Lincoln Square flagship to feature shave goods including brushes, soaps and razors. The Qaiyum’s recognized that shaving is back especially wet shaving since it eliminates problems such as razor bumps. Plus a lot of guys wearing beards and mustaches who don’t plan on shaving them off unless they have to need to keep them looking neat and professional. To make men’s grooming easier for all, Apothecary companies such as Imperial Barber Products have developed shave systems: Ours is a Pre-Shave Oil, Puck Shave Soap and Travel Shave Brush (you need to get the razor) followed by Bergamot After-Shave and After-Shave Balm. So whether dad showed you how to shave or not or if he used an electric razor. You can always DIY. And to really top it all off: Q Brothers also stocks rare European and domestic colognes and fragrances for men and women. 4718 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago
