Throwback with Tom Ford
From the spring/summer 2011 issue of Another Man
Tom Ford’s five easy lessons in how to be a modern gentleman
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.

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.

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.
