A modern gentleman is a gentleman who recognizes that the traditions, customs, and manners of old are not obsolete. A modern gentleman is sure of himself enough to know he can be comfortable in his own skin, even if that feeling is uncomfortable.
I could make a list of do’s and don’ts, rules, or standards to follow, but I believe every man must make his own conclusions. A true gentleman is not fabricated. He’s bred. (Now, I’m not saying that future posts won’t mention some more specific topics).
A gentleman’s closet should reflect his personality. I dare say, it should say something about himself, that speaks of him, without him having to utter a word. A major piece to a gentleman’s wardrobe is his tuxedo. I am asked quite often where I shop; 98% of the time by women. (So men… take the hint!).
Gentleman, I’ll leave you with this. Reflect on the outside, what is on the inside, but don’t you dare be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I’ll kick your…. *clears his throat and straightens his tie, then smiles*
