Rex 1955 Shaving Soap (4oz)

Sale price£20.95

Rex Supply Co Old World Tallow Shaving Soap is a love letter to the traditional soaps men have used for centuries. Before becoming preoccupied with man buns and vegan ingredients, soap made from animal fat provided clean, comfortable hydration to honest, hard-working men that were too busy providing for their country and families to debate about the characteristics of masculinity. The same men whose daily sacrifice built unprecedented economic growth in the 50’s and lead to a Golden Age of American manufacturing we still celebrate today.

1955, the first offering from Rex Supply Co, is a subtle, confident scent. Inspired by the most popular colognes from the 1950’s, with floral notes of hyacinth and gardenia, and woodsy notes of vetiver and sandalwood.

The complex aroma of 1955 is unlike anything available today; nothing musky, no headache inducing smack, and nothing too exotic about this classic American construction. This tallow shaving soap offers the most clean, comfortable and hydrating lather on the market today. Old World Tallow provides a rich cushion and leaves you lightly fragranced with the best post-shave feel you’ve ever experienced.

Much better than I expected

What can I say? It's one of the best scents I've used. And I've used hundreds.

Rex shaving soap

Really impressed with this soap.produces a thick and slick lather providing excellent cushion and glide all the while giving great protection during the shave .scent is subtle but lovely ,a definite hark back to those of shave feel is fantastic to boot ! A little goes a long way .highly recommended.


One of my best recent shave soap purchases. Lovely scent, but most importantly, a great lather that provides a super smooth shave with lots of residual slickness.

Rex Supplies 1955 Shave Soap

1955 Shave Soap from Rex Supplies
Is very good indeed, it produces a wonderful lather that is creamy and slick. The scent for me is always a secondary factor however it too is very good, a light floral scent with notes of vetiver and Sandalwood, quite masculine.
I like this soap so much I've brought a second one for when I have used my current one
This is quite a soft soap so I now just scoop out a little and lather it in my bowl, if you want to use from the container I would use a brush that is just damp so you don't turn your soap in the tub into a soapy soup!
A pleasant scent and a wonderful lather.

The Best

This is in my top 3 of soaps, not just because it’s got a super slickness and great lather, but the scent is out of this world. I get hyacinth, honeysuckle, Rose, and citrus. It reminds me of walking through a huge flower garden in summer when all the flowers are in full bloom. I have done a video shaving with it shaving fox on YouTube.
It’s that good I have made an order for the splash. Trust me it’s amazing
