Dopp Kit: Vintage fashion guru Cameron Silver of Decades talks grooming products
Owner of the influential Decades vintage fashion boutique, brand consultant and co-designer of the Decades Denim line, he's frequently seen around town in high-end designer duds (think Balenciaga suits and custom George Esquivel shoes), with nary a hair out of place.
How does he do it? Silver — the very first subject of our man-focused Dopp Kit series — reveals his indispensible grooming products. Not surprisingly, his top-five toiletries are as luxe as his wardobe:
Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Soap, $40: "This is the best cleanser," said Silver, who follows the "30 splash method" (splashing your face with water 30 times after cleansing) "religiously."
Aesop Deoderant, $35: The unisex spray deoderant, which packs a blend of essential oils and a heady vetiver scent "is a non-aluminum way to fight the sweat," said Silver.
Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax: $24: "I don’t know what’s in it, but it makes my hair go where it needs to go," Silver said of the popular paste.
Frederic Malle Geranium pour Monsieur, $225: Silver buys the travel size of this geranium-based fragrance — which also boasts notes of mint, anise, vetiver and musk — "and I always smell delish."
Perricone MD Neuropeptide Firming Moisturizer, $280: He relies on this emollient, anti-aging cream because "Who doesn’t need some firming in the morning?"
