Ask Jordan what he does for a living and he’ll tell you, “peddling male vanity.” It’s an unusual cause, but one we can get behind. The owner of Denver’s now iconic Proper Barbershop has a strong sense of manly style that evokes both the dapperness of the 1920s and the dark corners of ’80s punk rock. This convergence is far more comfortable and delightful than you’d expect.

Visiting Proper Barbershop on Tennyson or stopping in for a whiskey at Jordan’s place feels more like walking between two rooms than driving down the block. Elements of the shop regularly make their way into his home, like the former front counter at the barbershop that now serves as his bar at home. His eye for art is evident in both places, with pieces from each seeming like they’re part of the same collection.
