A few weeks ago, in a thread dedicated to the subject of plain old soap, Mr Shaver used the phrase "[it] is simply one of life's minor luxuries" (when referring to his fondness for Musco soap). I find this phrase quite pleasing and it has got me thinking about those other minor luxuries that we may enjoy and wish to share. In keeping with the definition of luxury, these would be "desirable for comfort and enjoyment, but not indispensable". They would be minor in the sense that, unlike many of the luxuries that we discuss here like bespoke suits and handgrade shoes, they may be had relatively easily an inexpensively, if one seeks to find them. I have posted this on the interchange since the subject crosses clothing, grooming and so forth. What are the minor luxuries which make your life more enjoyable? Some of mine are : Good quality shaving products;- I use creams and soaps from Taylor of Old Bond Street and Truefitt & Hill Proper caffeinated beverages;I eschew instant coffee and like to get proper ground beans (Monmouth Coffee Company) and good quality tea leaves (Fortnum & Mason) Decent shoe polish;since shoe leather is (or at least was) skin, it needs the best protection - so I like to use Saphir products Fresh socks - I really find one of life's great minor luxuries to be a new pair of socks. It's an excellent start to the day! I'm certainly not rich enough to have a new pair a day or anything like that, but I try and remember to invest in new socks at regular intervals (Pantherella and Falke) Well, there's some of mine...but there's always room in life for more minor luxuries so I'd really like to hear some of yours...?
