Turn your Date into a real Gentleman: good Manners, dashing Looks and a Tom Ford Suit

Published February 14, 2013 by The Feminist

Today is Valentine’s Day and if you happen to go on a date tonight, chances are small he will be a true gentleman. Unfortunately, the art of being a gentleman isn’t taught at university (Why not, I wonder? It would be so much more rewarding than taking English Literature 😉 ) and over the last decades men have swapped their good manners and articulate speech for swearing, beer bellies and pain-in-the-ass overconfidence.

Your date probably assumes gentlemen are pushovers. He doesn’t want to be a “Mister Nice guy”- oh no! – he wants to be a bad boy, rolling cigarettes and not caring about anyone but himself.

This is where your date is totally wrong. Being a gentleman isn’t about opening doors and saying please. It is first and foremost about respect. Respect for those around him, but also for himself, his believes and desires.

However, being a gentleman is not something you learn in a day. So if your date wasn’t a gentleman yesterday, he won’t be a gentleman tonight either. But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. With these tips and tricks he will hopefully understand that being a gentleman is his golden ticket to a bright and sunny future. And what better day than Valentine’s Day to choose to become a more respectable man with flair and coolness, right? ( Not to mention it will spare you a lot of embarrassing situations and frustrated sighs.)

Here we go:

• Open car doors for her: Not just on Valentine’s Day. ALWAYS!

• Pay for her dinner: These are modern times we live in, I know. That doesn’t mean, however, that he shouldn’t at least pay for your god damn food. You’re a lady! You deserve it.

• Give compliments: And I’m not talking about: “Did you get a haircut?” No , women want compliments that truly mean something: “ You smell like heaven.” or “You are so unique. I’ve never met someone like you before.” Or just say something romantic: “As long as you’re with me, I don’t care where we go.”

• Wear a suit. A TOM FORD SUIT!
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT wear jeans, tank tops and sneakers on a date. A suit makes every man look incredible. It can turn a “meh” looking guy into a dashing prince! (If you watch the TV-series “Suits”, you will know what I’m talking about 😉 )

If your date has wealthy parents or a big fat bank account, a Tom Ford suit is definitely the way to go. (Anyone who watched the Grammys a couple of days ago and saw Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s performance, will definitely agree!)

Tom Ford brought the sexy back to Justin Timberlake by letting him wear his sharp suits in his new single “Suit & Tie”. He created the suits for Daniel Craig in Skyfall and all male actors and artists want to wear his designs. He is a true Suit God! His suits are unique, alluring, über-cool and luxurious but always have a “naughty” edge. What more can I say, if your date wears one of his suits, you will be a very very very lucky girl!

So guys, be gentlemen! Or at least buy one of these suits.

  • Just this morning I was thinking of the “gentleman laying his jacket on a puddle” image. Therefore the lady doesn’t get her shoes dirty. Now this in itself is a bit daft, but the whole concept has faded away over time. Maybe everyone thinks we have hovershoes and can glide over puddles, so there’s no point.

  • It’s a noble thought, and a concept I try and live my own life by, but by the Gods, it’s hard to maintain when one is almost constantly overlooked in favour of the so called “bad boys”. Thankfully my love of clothing overrides my desire to attract a potential mate, so I can be comfortable in the knowledge that I’ll remain single, but at least be well dressed while doing so.

  • I had a boyfriend who pulled out chairs for me. It was really surprising and nice. However, he was lacking in a lot of other areas. Chivalry is great as long as the rest of the package is there. Just opening a door does not a gentleman make (sadly)
