TOM FORD IS A TRUE GENTLEMAN
A ROMANTIC BY NATURE AND A MAN
WHO GIVES SEDUCTION TIPS TO BOTH
MEN AND WOMEN AND IT ALL HAS TO

I grew up in a fairly conservative family where
manners were very important. I think that....
the most important thing about being a modern
gentleman and having good manners is actually
knowing when things are appropriate. It is very
appropriate to use different language to different
people at different times.
TOM FORD I do not mean this in an egotistical
way -but I am often complimented on my manners
And I think a lot of people have forgotten any sense
of measuring the situation and weighing up to treat
someone. Tom Ford treats women very differently
to men and still opens doors for them, carries their
coats, making sure that they are walking on the
inside of the street. And that comes from the fact
that traditionally women are more fragile than men.

shag more girls open the doors for them, stand up
when they come to the table, stand up when they
leave the table.You will be able to get anybody as

dinner table and girls just flip-out, they kick their
husbands"Get up! Look at him, why have't you got
up? Look at him, look at his manners.Why don't
you do that for me? It is so seductive.

so, if a male friend of mine comes to the table I'll
stand up and, while I do it halfway s a joke, it's
also definitely an acknowledgement.
