GIVE EVERYONE THE SAME FIRST CHANCE
A gentleman knows how to treat all people. Every one should be given the same chance… at first anyway.
KNOW WHEN NOT TO SPEAK
If you have nothing of relevance to say, just listen. Learn how to be interested as well as interesting.
In this peculiar age of self-promotion where over-sharing is as habitual as the common cold, it is easy to forget this cardinal rule.
There are certain things a man should always keep to himself. Not simply because it’s good manners, but because it’s prudent to do so.
Refrain from discussing your wealth, your religion, your family quarrels and another’s misfortune. Don’t discuss your wife, your lover or your girlfriend. The glint in your eye says quite enough.
ALWAYS BE COURTEOUS
In these unchivalrous times, a little courtesy goes a long way. Hold doors open for her and stand up if she arrives late to the dinner table. She will reward you.
THE EYES HAVE IT

DON’T BE ONE OF THEM

KNOW YOUR LIMITS
Black and white will always look modern. If you’re sartorially
challenged, stick to these colours and you can’t go far wrong.
SET THE MOOD
Know the importance of good lighting. Befriend your dimmer switch.
Supermodels don’t turn down flattering light, neither should you.
SPEAK THE QUEEN’S ENGLISH
Never use abbreviations in your actual speech.
The word ‘LOL’ wasn’t invented by Shakespeare for a reason.
SATORIAL BRITISH ELEGANCE WITH A RAKISH APPROACH TO LIFE
Just like the rules we follow to create unmatched quality in swimwear. As in everything that a gentleman does, there is a wrong and a correct way.
For instance, when a true gentleman is bowled out and once the umpire raises his finger, his leaves the pitch with good grace.
He knows to pass the port to the left and always walks on the outside of a lady, closest to the street, so as to protect her from any unexpected splashes.
But as with everything Hemingsworth, there’s always a modern twist on the expected and the classic. So now for the modern man about town there’s a new rulebook to follow.
