Captain Fawcett is delighted to have collaborated with Luigi Scapicchio, a member of one of the world’s oldest barber families. Together they have produced this magnificent Signature Series: Fig, Olive and Bay Rum Shaving Soap, contributing to the ultimate shave experience. Evviva!
The inspiration for this gloriously scented, luxuriant Shaving Soap comes from the abundant Fig and Olive groves to be found in the Scapicchio family’s native Puglia. A hint of West Indian Bay Rum, a traditional hair tonic, has been added for good measure creating a fusion of the Old World and the New.
The name Scapicchio is synonymous with one of the most renowned and respected barber families in the world. Signor Marco Scapicchio ﬁrst opened his barber shop for business in 1820 and for the following five generations the artisan skills associated with this most noble of professions have been handed down from father to son.
Scapicchio are masters of the art of the vintage Italian, and specialists in the Kamisori fixed blade shave. These renowned techniques are still taught in their famed Accademia.
The soap’s refreshing fragrance pays homage to Luigi’s great grandfather who emigrated to Chicago in 1910 and established his first Italian barbershop. Vincenzo was in time to become one of Al Capone’s trusted personal barbers... but therein lies another story.
