Chivalry is Dead

Well at least not for Tom Ford. Recently the famous fashion designer and newly accredited film director presented 5 lessons on how to be a modern gentleman in AnOther, and I find this quite interesting and intriguing.
 The 5 lessons are as follows:

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.

2. 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.

5. 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.

Ah, the sweet smell of chivalry; too bad it is non-existant in this modern age society...and too bad Tom Ford is gay. He is a great gentleman of our age.
