In a world that is constantly forgetting their manners, not visiting their relatives and swearing in every sentence, there is a need to remind us of what it means to play the role of a gentleman in today’s society. Here I have devised a little handbook of tips to keep you on top of your gentleman-ly game.
1. Keep your word
Whilst this seems relatively obvious, not many people actually follow through with what they say. If a promise is made, it should be kept – simple. Should you not be able to follow through on what you have promised you should own up to this and confront the person and explain yourself.
2. Dress for the occasion and execute it with style
You could be the most noticed person in the room without speaking a word. Your clothes can either make or break you and thus should be applied to any occasion. A works night out? Don’t dress like a slob, these are your chance to step out of your work uniform and show people who you really are and this is definitely an opportunity to whip out your luxury clothing.
3. Visit friends and family
There’s a reason all the fellas in the Godfather movies were all so close, it’s about family and failing that it’s about friends. These are the people closest to you and you definitely get what you put in in regards to time and effort with close relations. If you haven’t spoke to your old buddy from college for a couple of years be sure to send a quick instant message and see how he is doing. It goes without saying that you should visit your family especially your parents and grandparents but everyone is equally as important so be sure to allocate time for family
