Being a gentlemen is'nt about wearing a Saville Row suit
it is really about having good manners and of course if you
look good then all the better. It is very difficult to select a
style-icon who is a modern gentlemen with good manners.
On the contrary to popular opinion slapping on a suit and tie
does not make him a gentlemen. Being a gentlemen does
imply a certain amount of Satorial attention, but that is only
facet of a man's comportment and how he acts with the world
at large. A gentlemen is still very much defined by a .........
combination of elements ranging from politeness,sincerity
to manners and civility to others. The essence of all things
that make a man's character.
Tom Ford fashion powerhouse, film mogul and old school
romantic gives us an intimate masterclass of how to be a
perfect modern gentleman.' A gentleman today has to work'.
People who do not are boring and are usually bored. You have
to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be
contributing to the world.' Putting people ahead of yourself
is a sign of a modern gentleman' You should be the best
version of yourself when you go into the world because that
is a show of respect to the other people around you.....
