Gentleman - a man of refinement.
1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that 
is a show of respect to the other people around you.
2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. 

You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.
3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate.

 I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they’re walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.
4. Don’t be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background. 
5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate.

 Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.

Recently after reading Tom Fords rules on being a Gentleman I realized how deeply I adore these characteristics. Chivalry may be dead, or above our heads, but I seriously hope his recent introduction of these rules sets an example of men alike. I also came across this blog and it seemed almost serendipitous - well dressed, kind, hard-working, inspired, men - Gentlemen.  Grain and Gram is like The Selby of Gentlemen, and shit I am inspired and in love with this company.
