A Gentleman’s impeccable habits in 2015
Without further ado, a list for your consideration:
10: A gentleman always wears fun socks. A brand he favors is Stance.
9: Opening doors for others isn’t staid or irrelevant. A gentleman does so, and never while saying “after you” or “go ahead.” When handled well, everything is implied and understood.
8: When charming a lady, a gentleman warmly invokes his mother in conversation. Once.
7: When indulging in See’s candy, a gentleman never leaves the tiny paper cup in the tray.
6: A gentleman never drinks beer in anything but a glass.
5: Unless it’s deathly hot out. And he’s nowhere near a drinking glass.
4: A gentleman, a tad worried about the increasingly casual office attire environment, suggests “tie Friday” as a means of combating “casual Friday,” which appears to be taking place five days a week.
3: When a lady asks whether “she looks fat” in this, a gentleman emphatically and clearly says “no.” When she asks again, a gentleman expertly and artfully introduces a new topic of conversation.
2: A gentleman prefers to drink wine after 5 p.m.
1: Unless he’s at a baseball game. At which point he isn’t drinking wine at all.
