Rules of a Gentleman

I imagine Ryan EvansThe Rules of a Gentleman may, at one point, overlap slightly with the fantastic 1001 Rules for My Unborn Son (previously). I’m fine with that. I’m also fine with this one getting a book deal, too.

No. 10: Personal notes should always be hand written.

No. 26: Items that shouldn’t match = Watch, belt, slacks, socks and shoes.

No 28: Opening the door for a lady is not optional, and will never go out of style. (Andy Rutledge)

No. 33: Always provide correction in private and praise in public. (Scott Delinger)

    Hang on. Belt and shoes should be more or less the same colour … right? Not mandatory, but preferred?

    Opening the door for anyone I always think.

    No. 33: Always provide correction in private and praise in public. (Scott Delinger)

    Unless other people are informed by what the speaker is communicating. Then you kind of have a duty to correct.

    Or am I old fashioned?

    I have to agree that belt and shoes should match. For everything else I’m at a complete loss. The belt buckle should match one’s cufflinks/watch, right?

    Agreed.

    Very situation dependent, I would say. I can think of situations where I would only want correction in public and private.
