Leen and Bertus the creators of the famous Reuzel Pomade started learning men's haircutting at the ripe age of 14. With their love of classic barbering and strong influences of Rock'n'Roll, Kustom Kulture and its subcultures, it was inevitable that one day Leen and Bertus would open the world renowned Schorem Haarsnijder En Barbier, The Scumbags of Rotterdam.
Schorem is a type of wordplay that tends to get a little lost in translation. In Dutch it means “scumbags” or “bad boys”, but it is also past tense for “I shave him”. The “Haarsnijder en Barbier” is more straight forward, meaning Haircutter and Barber in Dutch.
Schorem is an old school men-only barbershop in the heart of the working class city of Rotterdam in Holland. The shop specialises in traditional, classic and signature haircuts, as well as, hot towel straight razor shaves. Schorem is trying to preserve the vanishing craft of barbers from a lost era of time.
Since it’s opening, Schorem has been frequented by Greasers, Rockers, Bikers, Psychobilly’s, Inkslingers, Skateboarders, Kids, Ruffians and other fine gentleman Scumbags from every echelon of society. It's not a rare sight to see these groups lining the street outside Schorem each day waiting for the shop to open. Leen and Bertus sum up the phenomenon perfectly; “Our Clients are not just customers for the haircuts, but to be part of the thing that is happening here”. With a Facebook following of over 130,000 fans and 46,000 Instagram followers, Scumbags from all over the globe are wanting a piece of this culture.
Harnessing their experience from nearly fifty years of barbering, Leen and Burtus created the what they class as the 'worlds finest Pomade'; Reuzel. Worthy of the pairs exacting standards Reuzel is taking the world by storm, the perfect compliment to the Schorem Barbers and barbershops around the world.
