Geo. F. Trumper began as a barber and perfumer in
London during the Victorian era of the late 19th century, when the gentleman ruled supreme. Mr. George Trumper
founded his shop in 1875 at 9 Curzon Street, where it is still located today. Catering to the quintessential English
gentleman, the company sold wares consisting of cufflinks, walking sticks, perfumes, and razors - all things which
can be found when visiting the store to this day. One of Geo. F. Trumper’s
specialties from the beginning was perfumes, which were commissioned by and named after the nobility. Today, Geo. F.
Trumper continues to fabricate perfumes, some even still named after those original noblemen (such as their famous
Wellington). Tradition, without a doubt,
runs deep within the going ons at Geo. F. Trumper. The family-run business can be traced back to George Trumper.
Their lime-based aftershaves are still wrapped in pink paper, an homage to the British war effort during the second
world war. (During this time, all other colors had been required by the military to be used in the war
effort.)The interior of the store also remains as it was when founded.
You'll find the same mahogany display cubicle and glass cabinets installed during the shop’s opening in 1875. And
you can get yourself a classic shave in a private velvet-curtained room, where during the Victorian era, men of all
classes would go for a regal shave.Geo. F. Trumper later opened their second
location, dubbed “The St. James
Shop,” on Duke of York Street
Keeping Tradition Alive
Though Geo. F. Trumper is
strongly committed to tradition, the company has not failed to stay relevant to the current age. Maintaining their
signature level of luxury and style, Geo. F. Trumper has made the move to selling online, bringing their long-held
traditions to the rest of the world. Their shops offer the best of what any
gentleman could desire and remain one of the few of their kind to still offer professional barber services,
including hair cutting, hair tinting, mustache and beard trimming, shaving, and manicure and pedicure services. All
these services are performed on location and in the privacy of a curtained cubicle. When in London, a visit to Geo.
F. Trumper is a must for any true gentleman. Find out more about Geo. F. Trumper on their website, and shop Geo. F. Trumper at Royal Shave.
