We’ve enlisted the help of 5 top menswear bloggers to get their advice on how to be the perfect gentleman, from dating and grooming to style and etiquette.
“I think first impressions count for a lot so it’s nice to do that little bit extra to make your date feel special.
Complement your date on how they look, everyone likes to be told they look good, especially if they’ve made the effort.
Not listening properly to what your date is talking about is a big no in my book. If you don’t appear interested in what they’re saying then it’s a mood killer plus not to mention, rude.”
Gentlemanly conduct still exists but it seems to have declined as common etiquette has declined. The fact that day-to-day clothing has become increasingly casual may also play a part.
Good etiquette and being a gentleman go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other.
The biggest faux pas is not eating with your mouth closed.”
"The most gentlemanly attire is a three-piece suit, hands down. If it’s well tailored, the silhouette is super masculine, it keeps you tucked in and feeling sharp.
Wearing joggers doesn’t mean you can’t be a gentleman, but it’s about taking pride in what you have on. I think your character influences your style choices. But I do think when dressing up in a fine suit, it can have that gentlemanly influence over you."
“Actor Douglas Booth for me is the personification of the modern day gentleman, not only for his impeccable style, but also his demeanour and conduct.
I would say that I am yet to see Justin Bieber possess any qualities of a gentleman.
If you are looking for a woman, it has to be Rosie Huntington-Whitely - elegance, beauty, poise and with a brain to match. If women aren’t really your thing, Mark Francis Vandelli is a good candidate; charming, devastatingly witty and of course, good breeding.”
"Grooming plays as important a role as clothing. It shows you take pride in your appearance.
I don't have a daily grooming routine per se, but I like to look the part. My hair doesn't take too long, 15 minutes at the very most - hair product in damp hair, then it's a matter of blow drying and brushing my fringe into a quiff.
Hair gel is my must have. I don't need much, but it keeps my fringe off my face."
