Grafton Barber Owner Survives Terrifying Shark Attack

Mr. Barry Whitelaw is the owner of three Grafton Barber stores, located in Blackrock, Cornelscourt & Dalkey and he tells the story of his brief encounter with the great white:

Mr. Barry Whitelaw, owner of Blackrock, Cornelscourt & Dalkey

I decided to go to Bondi beach one summer on a break from college with my mates from Northern Ireland.

I’ve always been a keen surfer, and living close to the Glens of Antrim I have always had the perfect teaching ground as a kid.

One sunny day I decided to take my board out on the iconic beach. The water wasn’t too rough and the waves had a nice roll so I paddled out to where I knew I could catch some decent waves.

While I was lying on my board waiting, I felt something nudge the back of my board, knocking me into the sea.

When I looked around I seen these large triangle teeth and I had my foot in the jaws of a great white. I punched him as hard as I could in the nose, he had his jaws closed on my foot but he must have realised I was from Belfast and let go!

I was blessed I didn’t lose the whole leg! I am still able to cut hair at The Grafton Barber although I get tired quickly.

Buying a Suit? Here are 8 ESSENTIAL Tips from The Grafton Barber!

Gentlemen!

At the Grafton Barber we want you to be the most stylish version of you, from head to toe! For some men, buying a suit can be a difficult undertaking. Which shoes go with which style? Brogues, Oxfords…Trainers? It can be challenging to get the look just right, but is extremely rewarding & satisfying once you do!

Over the next couple of weeks we will be looking at the different facets of dressing like a gentlemen – From hair to shoes and everything in between!

The first step is identifying the colour and material of suit you want to wear. 

We’ve assembled 8 tips to help assemble to perfect suit!

FABRIC
Make sure the suit is made with authentic thread that drapes elegantly.

CONSTRUCTION:
Make sure the construction of your suit (where the outer fabric parts the lining) does not lead into one another and mix – it should never be mixed, always outlined!

SHOULDERS
Suits need a good shoulder fit. Seams should never go beyond your shoulder!

LINING:
The lining should always be made with fine silk or a similar fabric. Your suit jacket should always be tailored to your fit – the hem is very important (where the lining is hung, folded & pressed)

POCKETS:
Pockets should never be bulky on a suit – they should barely be noticeable – smooth and level.

BUTTONS:
Buttons must always be one of the following materials: natural horn, mother of pearl, polished brass or ceramic. This is a deal breaker! If the buttons are cheap, the suit is cheap.

LAPELS:
There should be a subtle roll in your lapels

STITCHING:
It is vital your stitching is not frayed – it must be tight, clean & strong!

And that’s it, follows these tips and you’ll have yourself a well fitted & well crafted suit to be proud of!
