I'm a college student and heard that some stores offer student discounts. How do I know where to shop to get these sweet deals?
You're right. Some of our favorite retailers know that students are often pinching pennies and need a break so they offer a discount—all you've got to do is flash that college ID. Both J.Crew and Banana Republic offer 15% off in store on all full-price item. Club Monaco offers a whopping 20% off full-price and sale merchandise, even online with your .edu email address. Topman will give you 10% off in stores and online. And it's not really a "student" discount, but there's a standing 10% discount code at ShoeBuy (hint: it's SHOEBUY).
With Movember coming up, do you have any tips on keeping my new mustache presentable?
Ask your barber what style might work with your hair texture and face shape. And then keep it combed, clean and trimmed. You don't want a soup strainer. The hair shouldn't grow over your lip. For a cleaner look, The Art of Shaving's master barber Carl Cwiok has suggested shaving a quarter inch off of the area below the nose.
What's a not-too-stiff drink I can order when I'm out at a bar with friends?
If you want a foolproof cocktail that's simple to order and easy to drink, try a gin and tonic. It's got a twist of lime, with a touch of piney zing from the gin and a slightly sweet finish thanks to the tonic. A negroni is a good choice too, and the slight citrusy bitterness will make sure you don't drink it too fast. Ordering a whiskey smash can be a bit more complicated when ordering out, but it's a tasty choice as well.
