Toronto School for Gentlemen Course – Shaving with
Straight and Safety Razors
The Toronto School for Gentlemen is an ongoing series of workshops on the art of living an elegant life, focusing on skills in dress, hygiene, etiquette, entertaining, conversation and more. In other words, a 21st century finishing school for men.
Our next session is “The Art of the Classic Wet Shave” and will include tips and advice on double-edged and straight razors, brushes and soaps, pre- and post-shave treatments. You will learn how to achieve a better shave, enjoy the process and save money. This session takes place Monday, October 28th at 8pm at Hollow Ground Barber Shop, 1053 Bloor St. West. Registration is $25 and can be purchased by clicking below. Returning students receive a $5 discount!
Your instructors are Jonathan Hagey, proprietor of Kingpin’s Hideaway, head writer of Kingpin Chic, a blog about gentlemen’s style and “the dandiest of dandies of them all” according to blogTO, and Pedro Mendes, writer and broadcaster at CBC Radio specializing in men’s issues and menswear.
