Project Men


Project Men had the amazing opportunity to visit the HQ of Captain Fawcett, one of Project's Mens Brand Partners, and spend the day with the team.

Captain Fawcett’s story goes back to 1905 and to Captain Peabody Fawcett an intrepid and eminent Edwardian explorer, whose body was never found.  In 1997 an old battered trunk was purchased at a house clearance sale, inside was found an exquisite dressing case containing salves, unguents, ointments and the missing adventurers long lost journals.  A detailed list of exotic ingredients was found, for use in the Captain’s very own grooming requisites.

These precise formulae have been faithfully followed and Fawcett’s original potions, along with his renowned Moustache Wax are now available to the discerning gentlemen for the first time in over a century.

Richie Finney, Captain Fawcett’s founder started the day, with an introduction on Captain Fawcett.  The team then had a tour of the Emporium.  In the afternoon, the team were taken through the various ranges of Captain Fawcett’s products. Followed by a demo from Sid Sottung, Internationally renowned barber and a Captain Fawcett Ambassador.

Richie Finney comments: “Thank you for coming so far to visit Captain Fawcett HQ and for your hugely appreciated individual input in the day, that contributed so much to creating a successful day for everyone.” Brand Partner, Matakki Scissors Director, Emma Curd also took part in the team day.

Alex Burt added: “Such impeccable hospitality and what a wonderful box of Captain Fawcett treats.  Totally blown away by it all and can’t way to try out the products”.
