Lifestyle tips for the schoolboy sartorialist

Ride: Like all things beloved by the schoolboy, this Linus one-speed bike channels a bygone era. $550. Bikes on Wheels, 309 Augusta Ave., 416‑966-2453.

Read: True schoolboys tuck The Favourite Game by Leonard Cohen under their arm on the way to the park. $10. Type, 883 Queen St. W., 416-366-8973.

Primp: Good grooming is next to godliness in the collegiate chic handbook, and even a two o’clock shadow just won’t do. Keep your face stubble free with an indulgent hot lather straight-razor shave. $65. Mankind Grooming Studio for Men, 477 Richmond St. W., Ste. 103, 416-551‑1113.

Refresh: The Cat’s Pajamas—Genever gin mixed with Bénédictine, bitters, green Chartreuse mist, lemon and crème de cacao—is like a G&T for gastro-snobs. Avoid the temptation to snap your suspenders after every delicious sip. $12. Malena, 120 Avenue Rd., 416-964‑0606.
