A Moment with…Ursa Major®

we chatted with former New Yorkers Emily and Oliver of men’s grooming

What’s topping our wish list…
“A waffle-maker and the J.Crew sequin Etta pumps. (OMG, who
doesn’t want these shoes?!)”—Emily

“A good pair of binoculars and a pair of Fair Isle camp socks.”—Oliver

How to survive a Vermont winter…
“Get your blood moving with an outdoor activity. We’re partial to
back-country and cross-country skiing.”

“Layer up on wool and stock plenty of wood for the fire.”

“Drink ‘Oli’s hot chocolate’—a mix of good chocolate, organic milk,
Stroh Rum and maple syrup.”

live music every night and the menu focuses on local and organic produce.
Emily gets the tofu burrito and I get the Boyden beef burger.”

On a powder day we…

“Head straight to our favorite lines in the woods with our friends in tow.
(George, our tripawd bulldog, stays at home.)”

The biggest misconception about men’s grooming products…
“Guys are quick to say, ‘I don’t need that.’  The truth is, most men could
really benefit from a simple daily skin care regimen.”
