Ladies, Your Gentle Man 2012!!

Okay, sistah friends, this is an FYI for you. See, I find it appalling that some men have no clue on what it takes to be a real gentleman. I believe that a gentleman should truly look good from his head to his shoes. For you women who need the reassurance of what it takes to get your man to that gentlemanly status, read on. And for you men who just have no clue at all, well you definitely need to read on.

1. Grooming ~ A man should always be neat when it comes to his hair, nails and shoes. His hair should be in a tidy, trim fashion. Ponytails won’t do, but should he insist on wearing it long, know that he should keep his hair properly groomed, and it would need to be cut every 2-4 weeks. In my opinion, the best way is for him to wear his hair short; it looks professional and clean. And he shouldn’t have to get it cut as often. His nails should be short enough never to have any dirt underneath them. His shoes should always be shined, and the hair in his nose, ears and between his eyebrows, should always be trimmed.

2. Suit ~ Ah, what can I say about a man in a suit, other than it is an important step towards becoming a gentleman. It should fit him like a charm, be able to be worn everywhere, and make him feel like a million bucks.

3. Shoes ~ Okay Ladies, and wanna be Gents, these are important. Don’t be afraid to spend on a nice pair of wingtips or oxfords. They don’t have to be Ferragamos, but they should look sharp on. Eventually he’ll want a pair of black and brown shoes to go with everything he owns.

4. Watch ~ A classic watch like a Movado or an Armani, can do a lot for his image. Weil watches and Baume & Mercier watches are also classic, timeless timepieces. There’s just something so much more gentlemanly about looking at his wrist to tell the time rather than pulling his cell phone awkwardly out of his jean pocket.

5. Casual ~ The casual look for the weekend is essential. A nice pair of slacks or dark designer jeans like Sean John or Ralph Lauren, with a nice polo or cashmere sweater, pair well together. Loafers with argyle socks never go out of style.

6. Attitude ~ Ladies, and wanna be Gents, this is key, key, key. He can’t play the part without learning some lines. Be polite, chivalrous, and read lots of books. They will improve his vocabulary and make him feel more confident in intellectual circles.

Okay, so that’s it. When he applies these 6 simple steps to his life, it influences him positively in all other ways. He will be generally clean, fit, and even if he is butt-ugly, he will still turn heads. So go out there and start showing the world that the modern gentleman is here to stay. Good luck to you and your man. And to all the wanna be Gents, much success to you as well!!! ~smooches Dah-ling~
