3 Defining Characteristics of the Modern Gentleman

How do you become the ultimate, modern gentleman? These three topics are some of the overlooked areas that concern every-day life and they should be paid a little more attention. So read on and find out more…

Drink of choice

Whilst you can still be a gentleman whilst abstaining from alcoholic drinks, there is certainly an aura that surrounds the topic when it comes to a gentleman’s alcoholic beverage of choice. Nothing oozes class and retains as much respect as the age-old Whiskey.

With cocktails being a classy choice for the modern day gent, a wide range of options are available to choose from, from the simple yet classic Old Fashioned to the slightly more adventurous Whiskey Sour. I personally didn’t like whiskey until last year when I decided to introduce myself to the spirit through the consumption of Jack Daniels. I’d consider this an easier whiskey to drink as it’s distinct taste mixes well with Cola.

Now I may upset a few whiskey connoisseurs by mixing this drink with anything as ‘on the rocks’ may just about be the most manly way to drink your alcohol, but you can’t deny it’s powerful and unless you love the taste of straight ethanol it’s not an easy task. Some of my personal favourite labels for whiskey include Gentleman Jack and Makers Mark.

Clothing

Upon first impressions, your clothing is one of the biggest stand out pieces about your person. People may make an instant judgement based on what clothes you are wearing therefore some care should be taken when curating your clothing items.
