Online shaving company Harry's is making news for shaking up the men's grooming industry with high-quality, affordable products. Started by a Warby Parker co-founder, Harry's is touching down in D.C. as a retailer at Thread at Union Market, and we wondered what it would look like for the online brand to go offline. Harry's PR sent over a few photos of a previous pop-up to illustrate what Washington shoppers can expect. The plan is to sell a selection of items, including the Winston and Truman shave sets, $12 Truman 1-2 sets, blades, and cream. And shoppers will be able to get their razors personalized, with on-site engraving for the Winston handle. The engraved Winston sets will retail for $40.
