When you walk into Decatur & Sons, you may feel like you’ve entered a time capsule of sorts—this full-service barbershop, located in New York City’s Chelsea Market, has managed to capture the vintage middle Americana look and feel of a similar establishment in the 1950s.

Decatur & Sons is run by Thorin Decatur, a third-generation barber whose eyes light up when talking about the barbershop that his grandfather started in the late 1940s. Decatur, who previously worked at F. S. C. Barber, says that his shop is all about giving customers the best possible barbershop experience. It seems to be working, with Details Magazine recently naming his shop as the best place to get a shave in New York City.

Decatur & Sons joins a fairly long list of similar establishments in New York City and the United States (we previously covered the trend in Portland), but it opens early and closes late, and drop-ins are welcome. Customers can also book their appointments online. Learn more about Decatur & Sons by checking out their official website, or by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
