Tie Dimple Guide - How to Tie a  Tie With a Dimple Every Time with Any Knot
Learn more on how to tie a tie with dimple in this Guide: https://gentl.mn/mastering-the-tie-dimple Do you like the tie in the video? Visit this link: Silk Foulard Tie in Brown with Printed Micropattern: https://gentl.mn/2lKxoep #tie #tiedimple #notsponsored 00:00 Introduction 00:15 The Essence of a tie dimple 00:55 How to properly wear a tie 01:39 The way a tie looks without a dimple 01:56 Two ways to achieve a perfect tie dimple every time Basically, there are 2 ways to tie a tie knot, one with a dimple and one without. The people who usually tie a tie without a dimple are the ones who don't really know there's a different way to do it and oftentimes, it just happens to be that way especially when the tie knot is rather loose. On the other hand, men who really know how to dress prefer a dimple in their tie because it gives the tie dimension. It gives a three dimensional sense, it's elegant, it's slightly different every time and it just adds character to your tie knot. Let's get started, first you flip up your collar. You want to have the top button of your shirt unbuttoned. Then, you just throw the tie around your neck, adjust the length, turn down your collar and button it. Make sure your back end has the right length. For me, it's about a button up from my waistband but it depends on what kind of pants you wear, how long your tie is and how long your torso is so you simply have to figure it out. Next stop, tie the knot. It works with every knot. The way to tie a tie without a dimple is like this, simply pull your tie through and this is the way a tie looks without the dimple. You can see the knot is very loose, there's nothing there. It looks like a 13 year old just tied his tie. You tie your tie just like you always do up until the part where you put the long end, the wide end through the knot. Now, pull it gently so it's always all the way down and then, you reach in with your fingers and you create a little gap in there. You can hold it in together with your fingers then gently pull it through. You'll see it'll form a dimple at the bottom of your tie and you adjust it. Now you pull the short end and bring it all the way up to your collar. Voila! the dimple. Here's another variation of the central dimple. Basically, what you do is get in and you just make a little fold on the side you want the dimple on and then you pull through the wide end through the knot. So basically, you get a dimple slightly to the side. You can do it with either side, you don't need to pinch at the top and that way you can add a little variation to your tie knots and tie it the way you like it. ======================================= Gentleman's Gazette https://www.gentlemansgazette.com Facebook: https://www.Facebook.com/gentlemansgazette Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gentlemansgazette/ FREE EBOOK: https://gentl.mn/1Z5HT8G Want to see more videos?

Fused - Glued Suit vs. Half-Canvas vs. Full - Canvas Jacket Construction - Get the Best Value Suits
SHOP THE VIDEO: Houndstooth Silk Bourette Bow Tie - https://gentl.mn/2mBm4AG #suitconstruction #menssuits #notsponsored You can check out our written guide here: https://gentl.mn/fused-half-full-canvas-suit-construction 01:19 Glued/Fused Interlinings So what are the advantages apart from it being cheap? Well, it does the job, it gives the garment a three-dimensional shape. The problems, however, are manifold. First of all, because it is glued, there's not much flexibility in the garment and you can feel it because it feels less comfortable and it does not stretch when you move. Usually, you do get a chest piece that helps to form that three-dimensional shape that looks very masculine, however, in a garment of that category, you usually get something more inexpensive such as a cheap cotton or low-quality wool blend. 03:24 Full canvas First of all, the interlining is sewn to the fabric and as such, it is flexible. So when you move, it moves with you, it's comfortable, there are no pressure points, over time, the garment actually gets better. On top of that, you can really decide what kind of stiffness you go for. For example, the jacket I'm wearing in the video is extremely soft, it feels more like a sweater and it has some structure when I stand still but if you see the wrinkles here, they just stay like that. 07:20 Half canvas It basically takes the best of both worlds in a sense that it takes a good chest piece that is sewn and lasts for a while with the cheap part of the glue to keep the cost down. It's called half canvas but in fact, it's more like a 2/3 canvas with 1/3 of a glued interlining. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How To Tie A Pratt a.k.a. Shelby Knot & What Shirt Collar To Wear It With
Learn how to tie the Pratt Knot aka the Shelby knot to look great. https://gentl.mn/mastering-the-pratt-knot Would you like to get the tie I am wearing? Check it here. Brown Linen Wool Mohair Tie with Blue Stripes Texture: https://gentl.mn/2lI6cgl Today, you will learn to tie the Pratt knot AKA the Shelby knot. HISTORY: - The knot was first worn in the US during World War II - an American named Jerry Pratt started wearing it exclusively in the late 50s. - never really became popular until a man showed the knot in 1986 to the local news anchor Don Shelby. - Three years afterwards, in 1989, Europe times picked up on it and the daily telegraph in England renamed it the Shelby knot. HOW TO TIE THE PRATT KNOT: 1. Start out with the tie seam side up and the slimmer end on your right and the wider end on your left. The length of the slimmer end is about one and a half hand width above your waistband. Slim end goes over the wide end. 2. Take the bottom part, the wide end goes up, you always stay on the right and through a hole pulling it down. 3. Now you have this little knot and you want it to be tight. Take the wide end, bring it to your left, tighten it up a little bit and now from the back, you bring the wide end up, pull it up. Now the wide end goes through the knot and now you just pull it through, adjust it and pull it up. 4. You can see it forms a dimple automatically because you have that knot just on one side. Pull at the slim end, bring it up and adjust your knot. Voila! The Pratt AKA Shelby knot. - This kind of a big knot only works with cutaway collars or really wide spread collars. - Avoid wearing this with a classic collar because the collar ends will overlap with your knot which does not look very good. - You definitely do not want to wear this kind of tie with a collar pin or collar bar, much rather go for an oriental or four in hand knot because this is simply too big. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: https://gentl.mn/1VsuPKR Want to see more videos?

How To Dress Up When Others Don't & How To Deal With Haters or Negativity - Gentleman's Gazette

Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Burgundy and light grey Fil d'Ecosse Cotton - https://gentl.mn/2GtvRms If you like classic style, then wanting to dress up when others don't happen to you all the time. Recently the viewer Amir left a comment on our video, Things I Get the Most Compliments On. "Raphael, I've been upgrading my style. I used to wear graphic tees, ripped jeans and sneakers and now I wear untucked casual button-ups, dark wash jeans or chinos, and chukka boots. However, I still don't feel satisfied with my current style. The thing is that people around here never dress up. Is there anything wrong with dressing up all the time even to the most casual of occasions? I'm really scared of this step." Now here are the 7 tips I use specifically to deal with issues that arise from dressing well in everyday situations. One, whenever you dress appropriateness is a very important consideration. For example, at a wedding, you never want to out-dress the bride and the groom because it's their day. At the same time, if you go to a funeral, a burgundy or red flannel suit will simply detract from the event and it would be inappropriate. When there's a dress code indicated such as cocktail attire you should not wear black tie because that would be obviously overdressed. Two, if there isn't a dress code consider how much flexibility there is. For example, when you're on a plane you see people wearing sweatpants or a suit so whatever you feel comfortable with works. On the other hand, if you're in a business meeting and you're not the boss the dress code can be pretty much stipulated without being written down. In that case, consider the company culture. There's nothing worse than wearing a three-piece suit in a startup company that simply wears jeans and t-shirts all the time. It makes you look odd and stand out in a weird way. Three, dress to please yourself. Think of dressing as your hobby and it's something that you enjoy. It's about you and what you like to do not about others. Four, learn how to accept a compliment graciously because otherwise, you may come off like an arrogant prick. When you dress up more compliments will be coming your way and we did a video on how to accept it like a gentleman here. Five, it's very important to have a comeback ready. If you're asked why you're dressed up, have a few answers prepared that you can give right away so you don't have to engage in lengthy conversations, shut the conversation down and simply go about your way. By having an appropriate comeback you exude confidence most other people will just leave it at that and won't bother you again. Ideally, you shouldn't go down the rabbit hole of explaining. It's the same politics if you start explaining you're losing. Aggressive or negative people want to engage you in a fight, want to drag you down to their level, and then they beat you with experience so don't do that. The best comebacks are short and sweet. "What did you dress up for today?" "It's Thursday!" Or if you want to be snarky you could say something like "Adulthood." But again that may be seen as offensive. "Why you look so fancy?" "Why not?" "Why are you so well-dressed?" "Because I know how to." "Do you think you're better than us?" "No, dressing up is just my hobby." The sooner you'll accept that judgment will always be around the easier it gets to focus on what you truly want. Six, the single biggest secret to dressing up when others don't is to not care what others think of you. Personally, I'd say it comes very naturally to me and being on YouTube and being exposed and having that negativity around me just helped me to develop an even thicker skin. There's a good saying along the lines of "What other people think of you is none of your business" and I pretty much agree with that. Last but not the least, be authentic because that provides you with confidence and people who are confident are perceived in a much different way. #dressingup #notsponsored #howtodressup --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How to Tie an Ascot & Cravat 3 Ways + DO's & DON'Ts
Learn the best way to tie your Ascot & Cravat, what mistakes to avoid and more. http://gentl.mn/ascots-cravats-how-to #ascot #howtotieanascot #notsponsored How to tie an Ascot? Here are three ways that you can do it. 1. TRADITIONAL - pleats up or down, it doesn't matter. It is necessary to have the pleats overlap the knot so the knot will be tighter and look your best all day. The right end needs to be about three to four inches longer than the left one. Second, the right end, the longer end, goes over the left end. What's important here is that the pleated part is actually part of the knot. With the traditional ascot, you may want to unbutton your shirt and then you close it once you have it tucked in and then simply adjust it to your liking. 2. SIMPLE - simple because of a single knot. For this type of knot, it is rather loose so it is likely for it to become looser over the course of the day. 3. MODIFIED FOUR IN HAND- The right end should be about 2 inches longer and follow the steps when tying a regular four in hand. With an ascot, it's more complicated because it is unlined. The advantage of this is that even if it comes loose which is not likely, you can always simply tighten it. The modified four in hand adds more volume in the knot making it pop and flow down nicely. Some of you may have half ascot versions where you have one loop and one wide end. To tie this, the wide end goes through the loop and you pull it tight, adjust it and just bring this end through the back, adjust it and put it in. It's not as full but can be advantageous when it's warm and you want less material on your chest. Things to avoid when wearing an ascot? -Never button your shirt all the way up. -Never unbutton more than two buttons an exposed chest is not attractive. -Avoid cheap silk on your skin or jacquard woven silk because it will pull more threads and it will be more uncomfortable. -For day wear, avoid ascots with interlining because it's stiffer and not very comfortable to wear. -If you sweat a lot, be careful with your shirts because cheap silk have the tendency to bleed off the color and you don't want to ruin your shirts. ======================================= Interested in buying Ascots, look here http://gentl.mn/1V5LLb9 To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: http://gentl.mn/1RYGNMU Want to see more videos?

Seersucker Suit, Blazer & Fabric Guide – How To Buy It, Style & History
Seersucker, the iconic summer fabric. What it is & what it's not, what you should look for when you buy one, and how to combine it? Find the answers here.: https://gentl.mn/seersucker-guide #seersucker #summerfabric #notsponsored Click below to get the accessories worn in the vid: Tie: https://gentl.mn/2kdgDv4 Boutonniere: https://gentl.mn/2kdgGae Pocket Square: https://gentl.mn/2l3lQVx Seersucker is a puckered fabric. Traditionally, it comes striped in light blue and white. Its original color combination was more of a cane sugar brown and white. The huge advantage is that it's made of cotton and very lightweight and therefore, it's very popular during the summer time. The crinkling effect is achieved by bringing tension on the yarn, because of that, it's very easy to maintain as you don't really need to iron it and it really doesn't wrinkle very easily. It's a great summer fabric due to its light weight. Even though stripes are traditional, you can now also find solids and checks. The original seersucker and the one most often used is made of a 100% cotton without any additions of polyester. The origins of seersucker are in India. The words "Sheer" means milk and "Shukkar" means a brown version of cane sugar. So from Sheer, Shukkar, it turned into Seersucker. It was first mass-produced in New Orleans by Haspel who still is very famous for seersucker suits today. Legend has it that the owner actually wore the suit, went into the sea, took a bath, just hung the suit up, and wore it the same day for dinner. It proved this point that it was maintenance free because it even withstood a bath in salt water. In the beginning, it was a "poor man's suit" but in the 30s, students in Princeton picked it up. Eventually, Life magazine deemed it acceptable to be worn at the office and the Duke of Windsor, famously wore it during his assignment in the Bahamas during World War II. In 1962, Gregory Peck wore a three-piece seersucker suit in the famous movie "To kill a mockingbird". When looking for original seersucker, you can take the fabric and look at it from an angle, and you should see little waves and crinkles. In the US, it's very easy to find them off the rack and large companies like Ralph Lauren, or Brooks Brothers, or Haspel, sell them all over the place. The most popular style is what I'm wearing here, in a single breasted version with either three buttons or two buttons. Because it's a summer suit, it makes perfect sense because a double breasted suit would insulate you more and make you feel hotter. In terms of accessories, what goes really well with seersucker is a knit tie. White shirts or light blue shirts, maybe light pink. Seersucker also looks great with pocket squares in either plain white, or you can go with summer colors. Boutonnieres are also perfect as they underline the summery character of seersucker. Some men also like to wear bowties. Of course, seersucker also works really well with a Panama hat. Alternatively, you can also wear sunglasses but make sure they're classic. The advantage of buying a seersucker suit is that you can wear the pants independently and oftentimes, pair it with blazers. Of course, you could also wear the jacket on its own with maybe a pair of royal blue pants or even Nantucket reds, so it's a very versatile summer garment, and it's even appropriate in the office, particularly in the Southern US. If you're outside the US, I suggest you only wear it in a casual setting because they may be considered to be very flamboyant. Most seersucker jackets that come off the rack have flap pockets, but I think it looks better with patch pockets, even for chest pockets, simply because it underlines that summery, airy, nonchalant character of the garment. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Want to stay updated?

What It Means To Be A Gentleman Today
Check out our full guide, here: https://gentl.mn/Gentleman-today #gentleman #howtobeagentleman #notsponsored The term gent or gentleman has become ubiquitous in magazines, blogs and on TV. Overall it is used for all kinds of men and it’s very hard to tell what the meaning actually is and what it entails. The Original Gentleman 1. A man of high social status and wealth 2. A polite or formal way to refer to a man. 3. A man of noble birth or someone of a royal household. 4. A man of good social standing or a member of the House of Commons. 5. A man with a general good societal position. We came up with 11 hallmarks of a gentleman today. 02:23 A gentleman is imperfect. 02:36 A gentleman has high standards. 02:48 A gentleman is well dressed. 03:08 A gentleman has good manners. 03:30 A gentleman is open minded. 03:54 A gentleman is interested and informed. 04:18 A gentleman’s actions match his words. 04:35 A gentleman treats people with respect. 04:56 A gentleman recognizes the difference between arrogance and confidence. 05:16 A gentleman wheels his power purposefully. 05:31 A gentleman gives the benefit of a doubt to other people. Being a gentleman sets a very high bar and it's not a definitive thing. It’s a lifetime pursuit of self-awareness, motivation, and improvement. Now all of that comes with challenges. Even though we have the best intentions, sometimes if we are stressed or if we get up on the wrong foot or in a bad mood we may treat people in a way that is not gentlemanly. If that happens, own it, apologize and be sincere and people will respect you more for it and understand it. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How To Pack A Carry-On Suitcase For A Short Business Trip - Packing Tips & Hacks From a Travel Pro
Pack your carry on like a PRO: https://gentl.mn/how-to-pack-a-carry-on Travelling for a longer period of time? https://gentl.mn/2Dq8tpF SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Two-Tone Knit Tie in Black and Magenta Pink Changeant Silk - https://gentl.mn/2kBW7VE 2. Burgundy Silk Pocket Square with little Paisley Motifs - https://gentl.mn/2yVfdbF 3. Blue Socks with Red and White Clocks - https://gentl.mn/2ycUuT8 First of all, if you go with air travel, I suggest you go with a spinner suitcase with nice wheels that roll very easily so you can maneuver it very easily, but it should also be stable so you can put a little briefcase or another carry-on item on top of it while you walk with it. Packing a small carry-on suitcase is very different from packing a larger spinner suitcase, so if you want to see how a larger one is packed please check out this video here. So how do you pack a small carry-on suitcase? First of all, put out all the items you want to bring on your trip onto your bed or maybe on the floor if the bed is not large enough. Remove all excessive items and only bring the bare bones you really actually need. If it's just a one-day business trip, you simply need one pair of shoes, and I simply suggest to wear it. If it's a two or three-day business trip, you want to bring another pair of shoes but that's it. I always suggest to go with black cap toe Oxfords, maybe Balmoral ones that add a little decoration, if you have very big feet, maybe a derby shoe is the way to go. First, let's start with the pants. You want to fold them in thirds because that way, it fits into your suitcase. lay that on the flat side of your carry-on suitcase. In this video, I'm using a small houndstooth suit simply so you can see better how I fold it. If you got a business trip, probably a solid navy suit, or charcoal, or light gray, or gray suit, are the better way to go. Second, if you have a three-piece suit with the vest, you simply take the vest, fold it in half and make sure the top ends align, as well as the bottom tips of the waistcoat, then you simply just roll it up. Again, you have a nice little fabric roll, now put the roll aside. Now, it’s time for the jacket. Take the left sleeve and pull it inside out, make sure to pull it all the way through. Now on that same sleeve, go to the shoulder and push it, and fold it inside out, this creates the perfect shape and it fits right into the opposite shoulder that wasn't folded. We do this to protect the shoulder so doesn't get crushed and wrinkled. Now take the rolled-up waistcoat, and stuff it into the shoulder area so it gives it additional support and prevents it from wrinkling. Now you fold up the jacket so it lays neatly in the case on top of the pants. Usually, there's a little gap on top of the shoulder, I use that to roll up some ties and ideally, knit ties because they're less prone to getting wrinkles. Now, it's time to close that compartment and let's look at the other side of the suitcase. The socks, underwear, and undershirt, that didn't fit into my shoes now go in between the telescope mechanism so we create a somewhat flat surface. I put in the shoes sideways so they use up as little space as possible. Maybe if you want to bring a sweater or a cardigan, now is the time to put it in here. If you want to bring a long sleeve polo shirt for a casual evening outing, I usually roll it rather than folding it because a. it's quicker, b. it saves me space and c. it's not prone to wrinkling as much as let's say a dress shirt. If you want to bring any other folded items such as a t-shirt, an undershirt, I would roll those as well. Once you've put all the things in, it's time to fill the gaps. Maybe you want to bring suspenders, they should be rolled up and you can stuff them in a gap. Usually, somewhere around the shoes, with a belt, you can also roll it up but if you don't have enough space anymore, you can simply unroll it and lay it around the edges, that way, you'll maybe fit even more things into your suitcase. #howtopackacarryon #travel #howtopack -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Rings & Their Meaning, Symbolism For Men - What Finger(s) To Wear A Ring On

Monkey's Fist Knot Cufflinks - 925 Sterling Silver Rose Gold - https://gentl.mn/2MnVkFH My fascination with men's rings actually started in 2015 when I was in Berlin, Germany. At the flea market, I spotted this malachite sterling silver ring which cost just 10 euros and I liked the look of it and that started it all for me. So what do rings on different fingers mean? First of all, let's start with the ring finger. Interestingly, before medical science was established, people thought that there was a direct vein from your ring finger to your heart, it was called the vena amoris or the vein of love. Because of that, it was the natural finger to wear a wedding ring on. Which brings us to our next finger. The word pinky is derived from the Dutch word pink which means as much as little finger. The earliest recorded use of the term pinky goes back to Scotland in the year 1808. Wearing a pinky ring for men has a long history of symbolism. For example, in Victorian times, men including Prince Albert would wear their wedding band on their pinky ring. Sometimes, it was also stacked underneath their signet ring which was also worn on their pinky finger. On the other hand, in the US, pinky rings were sometimes associated with criminals and thugs. Next up is the middle finger, also known as the long or the tall finger. It's most well known for the obvious gesture you can make with it and because of that, very few men choose to wear a ring on this finger. If you ever put a ring on your middle finger, you can notice that it gets in the way of things and it feels odd on your hand. A ring located at the center of the hand is said to symbolize responsibility and balance. Wearing a ring on your middle finger is a very bold choice that gets you noticed and maybe it can even be a conversation starter. Next up is the index finger, also known as a trigger finger or pointer finger. It's a most dominant finger, only second to the thumb and because of that, it symbolizes power or authority and leadership, maybe even more so than the middle finger. If you want your ring to get noticed, wear it on your index finger. Now last but not least is the thumb. It is probably your most used finger and it's usually associated with softer gestures such as the thumbs up which are less harsh as the index finger where we point at things. In my experience, the thumb is the key to any kind of a grip position so having a ring really restricts your movement and it's just awkward. How many rings can you wear? The simple answer is that's up to you. There have been men who've worn rings on every finger, sometimes even stacked on the same finger. Others wear six rings or four. Personally, I'm a big believer in less is more. What about wearing two or more rings in the same hand? The most traditional way is probably to stack your wedding band and your pinky ring all on your pinky finger. Now what if you want to wear rings right next to each other, let's say on your pinky and your ring finger? Personally, I'm not a big fan because the metal touches and it just feels awkward on my hand. A classic traditional safe way for men to wear rings is to have a single one on your ring finger. If you want to add two, you can put it on a different hand, either on your pinky or on your ring finger or you can stack them on your pinky.

How to Tie a Windsor Knot, Full Windsor, or Double Windsor & What To Avoid
The best, most comprehensive Video on How To Tie a Windsor Knot & step by step instructions with close-up shots. Works guaranteed. This is the only video on youtube that also discusses the importance of the tie for this knot, including lengths and thickness because not all ties are suited for the Windsor Knot. Many confuse this knot with the Half-Windsor , but here you learn how to tie the Double Windsor a.k.a. Full Windsor. Also, learn the DO's & DON'Ts, what ties to use, which ones not to use + what shirt collar to wear with a Windsor knot and when not to wear it. 00:12 History of the Windsor knot 01:57 Requirements for tying a Windsor knot 02:25 Step by Step guide on how to tie the perfect Windsor knot 04:21 What happens on a Windsor knot when you use a thick tie 05:20 Tie lengths to fit your height So as you can see, the Duke of Windsor created the size of the tie knot with the interlining and with the fabrics he used, not with the knot. This is just another proof that it's not just the knot, it's the tie, the silk, the interlining and it all plays together in the size and the look of the knot. That being said, In terms of size the Windsor knot is one of the biggest tie knots out there at the same time, it's also very popular but what's important to understand is that in order to tie a Windsor knot, you should A. get a tie that's longer B. it should be thinner simply because it's such a big knot. So here, you see me wearing a very thin madder silk tie by Fort Belvedere with paisleys and the knot is still rather big. I think it's very popular because of its symmetry although personally, I'm a huge fan of it. Nevertheless, here is how you tie it. You want the slim end on your right and the wide end on your left. The slim end should be about a hand and a half above the waistband. If you have a shorter tie, it needs to come up much further. So you'll have to experiment with it and see what works. Wide end goes from left to the right, up here and pinch it and take the bottom end, come through here and pull it through. And then you go to your left side, now's the chance and move the long wide part around the right side, come up and go through the hole in the back and pull it down. So what's happening here is you can see you have two knots, one, two. You pull it a little tight and bring the wide end to the left side and again up, pull it up and you see the knot forms. Like usual, bring the wide end through the knot, gently pull and if you want a dimple, you can pinch on top. pull it gently through. If you like the look, pull it up and adjust. As you can see, this knot is very symmetrical and it's very wide, forms this triangular shape and that's why you want a wide cutaway spread collar to accommodate this knot with a classic or medium spread collars, you run into troubles because the collar is going to cover the edges which looks not very advantageous. You're much better off with a four in hand knot or a kelvin or a Pratt knot rather than the full Windsor knot. Now, what happens if you use a thick tie? I'll show you. Here, I have a longer wool blend tie from Fort Belvedere with red herringbone. I'm going to do the same thing, I'll tie the Windsor knot. Now this is what the Windsor knot looks like with a thick tie, it basically eats my face. Personally, I don't like that look. If you like it, go for it but always bear in mind, full Windsor knots look better with a slim long tie. Oftentimes, I see shorter men wear a Windsor knot because the only way for them to get their long ties to the right length is to choose a bigger knot however, that looks awkward because they have smaller heads and big knots which just looks overwhelmingly wrong. Therefore, I created ties in three different sizes. Some for short men, some for normal men and some for tall men so everybody can wear the right tie knot and tie size that works best for their personality and the face rather than having to come up with a gigantic knot so you achieve the right length. So, if you're a shorter man or taller or normal guy in terms of height, check out our shop and we have specific ties at specific lengths so you look your best.

Half Windsor Knot: How to Tie & What Mistakes To Avoid
All you need to know about half Windsor knot, click here: http://gentl.mn/mastering-the-half-windsor-knot Get the tie I’m wearing, visit this link. Linen Wool Blend Tie in Olive Green: https://gentl.mn/2kKPBdl Ironically, the half Windsor knot has nothing to do with the Windsor knot. Today, I'm wearing a Half Windsor knot with a green linen wool blend tie from Fort Belvedere which is on the thin side. It is a symmetrical knot, with a tie dimple included. How to tie the half Windsor knot: 1. With the slim end on your right and the wide end on your left. - The slim end should be about a hand and a half above your waistband, the wide end goes to the right, over the slim end and back to the side it was originally at. 2. Bring the tie up and go through the hole and go the opposite side so you have it back onto your right. 3. Bring it back over to the left and front, pull it down and up, forming the knot. 4. The wide end goes through the knot and for a dimple, pinch. 5. Once the knot is forming, pull the slim end up and pull down underneath the knot and pinch. 6. Form the knot you like and then pull it up. - With this tie knot, avoid wearing a tab collar or any collar bars and pins. I recommend a cutaway collar, spread collar, maybe medium spread thin ties. - For thicker ties, it may be daring, it's not going to be as big as the full Windsor knot. - For shorter men, get a short tie so you can tie a smaller knot that suits you, your height and your body. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: http://gentl.mn/1qmnLEi Want to see more videos?

Funeral Etiquette Guide - How To Behave, Dress Code + DO's & DON'Ts
Learn the basics about funeral etiquette, how to behave, what to wear, and what not to do at funeral and memorial services. Read the full guide here: http://gentl.mn/funeral-etiquette When you learn about the death of a loved one or an acquaintance, it's important to reach out to the intermediate family and express your condolences. The best way to do this is through a letter of condolence. No, this is not a Facebook message, this is a handwritten letter that is dropped in a mailbox. The core point of this is that you have a sincere, honest message that lets them know that you think about them and that you're sorry for them. Historically, people also sent flowers because it helps to mask the odor of death and the not so perfect embalming process. Today, people send flowers because it's a sign of respect, sometimes though, people find it's a waste of money if they have too many flowers and in that case, what's always appropriate is to have a donation for the deceased favorite charity. Sometimes, they have little cards at the visitation or at the funeral service where you can donate the money. It's really important to never send flowers if the deceased is Jewish and if you want to learn more about Jewish traditions, Buddhist traditions, Orthodox traditions or Muslim traditions, please check out our in depth guide about funeral etiquette on our website. The next step is the funeral or memorial service, it's always a funeral service if there's a body and a coffin. If that's not present, it's called memorial service. This can also be the case if the body was cremated, we talk about memorial service, not a funeral service. The traditional funeral service is slowly but surely becoming extinct and it's often substituted with a celebration of the person's life and it always depends on what the deceased would have wanted or what he wished for. This event is not about you, attend the service, converse, talk to the family and leave. At the service, you want to be respectful at all times. It's a tradition at a funeral to have a eulogy which is a heartfelt tribute to the deceased. If you're asked to give a eulogy, you should think about how to talk about the person in a complimentary and dignified way. This is about showing your last respect to a person, maybe shared memories or things that made him a great person. Now one of the components of respect, especially at a funeral is dress code. Never wear jeans or a golf shirt, like slacks, shorts or anything of that kind for a funeral. It's simply disrespectful towards the deceased. If the death occurred in your family, it is important to acknowledge the heartfelt sympathies in the cards you got. You want to tell people that you are thankful that they thought of you and again, it is best to express with a thank you card. A funeral is a very sad event and it is important to support the family, that you are subdued, you understand it's not about you but about the family and the ones who are left behind and so you have to do your best to support them and to show your respect and dignity. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: http://gentl.mn/1UEQq3J Want to see more videos?

How to Fold a Pocket Square 5 Quick & Easy Ways to Fold Handkerchiefs
Learn How to Fold a Pocket Square in 5 Quick & Easy Ways with step-by-step instructions. Also works for handkerchiefs in cotton, linen, silk, wool. https://gentl.mn/quick-easy-pocketsquare-folds #pocketsquares #styletips #notsponsored See my pocket square collection: https://gentl.mn/2JtXktj Before you start folding any pocket squares. It is really important to know is that there are the different sizes of pocket squares and not every size is well suited for every fold. Also known as the classic fold, this way to fold a pocket square is very traditional. It goes well with dark business suits, navy blazers. If you go to a funeral, it's not flashy, very even keel and you can never go wrong with it. The way to fold it is to take your pocket square, and when you have it, you fold it in half. And then you fold it in half again. And you want to make sure that if you have like a contrast edge or embroidery that that faces outwards. But when you have it, you basically fold it again. Try to fold it neatly. And depending on the size of your pocket, you have to fold it over more or less. The second fold I'd like to show you is the so-called crown fold. You take the square pocket square and fold it into a triangle. Once you have it in a triangle, what you do is you take the two tips, fold them slightly apart then you take the right end and fold it over to the left and the left end you fold it over to the right. Once you have that, you take the sides in, on both sides. You fold up the bottom part and you put it in your pocket square. The third fold is the so-called puff fold or pinch fold. It's very traditional and great with silk pocket squares because of the way it folds. One thing you need to know about this is that your silk pocket square needs to be big enough. So, instead use a big pocket square. As you can see, much bigger square and the way you start is to go to the center of the square, you pinch it, then you take your other hand form a little hole and you kind of pull it through. Once you like the look, you twist it by about half, fold it over and put it in your pocket. Now, you adjust it to your liking and there you go. The fourth fold is the so-called upside down puff fold and it is very similar to the puff fold. You just show a different edge. So, let's take it out. The way you start again, it's important big silk pocket square. You pinch from the middle and you rotate and twist. And then you just put it in your pocket. This time, you show the edges. And here, it's important that you adjust them until you like them, and you're good. The last fold is the so-called shelf fold. It is very unusual and you probably won't find it anywhere else. But I like it because it has this kind of little folds and it's very refined. Especially for your tuxedo or white tie look. I think it's particularly good with silk and you need a large silk pocket square to do it. The way to fold it is to start out, you take your square and you fold it into a big triangle, like so, right. A big triangle. I always do it from the right, from my right. So I take the point of my right and I fold it up to the other point. Do the same thing again with the next point. Fold it up and once again do it so with the last one. What I have now is another triangle, a small one. And what's really important is that you get these little folds here that are kind of on top of each other. And when you have that, the triangle points down, you fold it inwards like so, that you get this effect. And you put it in to your pocket. Now that I told you about my five essential pocket square folds. I want to just give you a few quick pointers to help you on how to wear a pocket square. First of all, go for hand rolled edges. Use natural materials, they look better, they last longer. The colors are better. So skip nylon or polyester or lycra and use silk, linen, wool instead. They will last longer, look better and that's the whole point of wearing a pocket square. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: https://gentl.mn/1XBI7FX Want to see more videos?

How to Get Ready for a Date
Learn how NOT to feel anxious on your first date: https://gentl.mn/date-night-etiquette SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Burgundy and light grey: https://gentl.mn/2gw4soo 2. White Linen Pocket Square with Burgundy Red Handrolled X Stitch: https://gentl.mn/2wzPPrX So before you even make it to a date, make sure it's actually a date. With all the internet vagueries, the differences between a date, or a hookup, or whatever else, can be quite vague and so it just helps if you just clarify it. Once that's settled, make plans together. Traditionally, dinner is what you do, especially in the beginning, however, if you know that the person a pretty spot or she has a very peculiar hobby, or she always dreamed of doing something, it may be a great idea to suggest just that. That means, get a haircut. If you just recently got a haircut, simply go for a trim because it provides you with a polished look that says "I respect myself and others" The day before the date, just reach out to confirm that the date is on and do not offer to pick her or him up in case it's your first date. Keep that for the second date. Just like with the haircut, you want to make sure that your outfit stands out but that it's you at the same time because you want to be confident and you want to be able to focus on your date and not on your clothes and how it fits. Of course, you should always adapt to your outfit to the date itself and the outward surroundings. If it's hot, wear something more summery. If it's cold, wear something that's appropriate. Personally, I think it's a very bad first impression to look stiff so if you don't wear suits very often, skip the suit as it will feel very odd because you are just not yourself and it's unnatural which is unpleasant and your date will notice that. If you usually wear polo shirts, maybe get a step up with a dress shirt, or if you usually wear dress shirts, get a step up and get a jacket or a blazer. Definitely, pay attention to your shoes because it is something most dates will take a look at so I suggest a nice pair of leather shoes with a matching leather belt is perfect. If you wear a blazer or a jacket, go with a pocket square. It adds a really polished look, otherwise, just go with a nice wristwatch. Definitely, skip the gold neck chains and maybe the wristbands because that may just give the wrong impression. At the morning of your date, it's time to trim your beard if you have one or to get a nice proper shave. You can either do a double edge razor shave or you can go with a straight razor shave at your barbershop, it's up to you. Just make sure you have a great look. Also, make sure to take a shower, brush your teeth, go over your nails, remove any nail dirt, clip and file them, and you can check out how to do that at home in less than 10 minutes in this guide here. Under no circumstances should you forget deodorant. You can also add a little bit of cologne. Make sure you don't overdo it because that has a negative effect. Before you leave the house, it's time to check your wallet. Make sure you have enough cash to maybe tip, pay for the valet, or other things that may occur where you need cash. Definitely bring your ID in case you get carded and otherwise, make sure that credit cards are all valid. Let's say you go to dinner and the cheque arrives, don't let it linger, take the lead, and offer to pay and just wait for the reaction of the other person. Last but not the least, I suggest you always review what you know about the person, maybe go through the messages again, maybe through their profile so you understand what they are and you don't get confused or get things mixed up because that could be quite embarrassing Put your phone on silent and don't be late because if you are late on a date, it reflects very poorly on you and it shows them that you don't respect them and their time and it's just a very bad start to any date. #howtogetreadyforadate #datenight #notsponsored -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How To Tie A Tie - Oriental Knot - Most Simple & Smallest Knot
The best video, to learn how to tie the simplest of all tie knots, The Oriental Knot. Sven Raphael Schneider explains how to tie the perfect Oriental tie knot step by step and when it is best to use this knot and what shirts do and don't work with this tie knot. https://gentl.mn/mastering-the-oriental-knot Want the tie worn in the video? Visit the link below. Silk Foulard Tie in Blue with Printed Micropattern: https://gentl.mn/2lacEz0 The Oriental is one of the most popular tie knots in Asia. This is the easiest tie knot that you can find and is also the smallest one. This tie is great for very short ties or if you’re very tall because that way, you don’t use a lot of tie material forming the knot. The oriental knot is great to wear with collar pins, collar bars or collar clips because it is so small that something easily fits underneath them. This knot works best with a classic collar or a medium spread collar. HOW TO TIE THE ORIENTAL KNOT: 1. The wide end is going to be much longer than the slim end. I usually have the slim end about a hand above my waistband or my trousers, but it’s different with everybody, so you have to figure it out. 2. Okay, first the slim end goes on top of the wide end. Pinch it here and you bring it over once like so, pull it slightly tight. 3. Now you take this end, goes through behind the knot, pull it up, pull it nice and tight then you take this end and get it through here. 4. You hold your knot while you pull it through gently. Now your knot is a little thick so what you do here to get a dimple, pinch on top and pull through. 5. Always gently, gently pull and then you bring it up until you like the look. ======================================= Want to learn more about style?

3 Dress Shoes Every Man Must Have
In this video, you will learn all about the 3 Men's Dress Shoes every man should have in his shoe closet. 02:09 Aspects to consider before building your shoe wardrobe 02:40 Shoe number 1 04:09 Shoe number 2 05:30 Shoe number 3 George Fraser once said “If you want to know a guy is well dressed, look down.”. Shoes can either make or break an outfit, a pair of nice shoes can upgrade whatever you are wearing. On the other hand, if you have cheap shoes, even the most expensive, best fitting shoes can look bad. This is why it is important to invest in a good pair of shoes. Definitely, it will not be inexpensive, but on the bright side, you can wear it for long and the effective cost per wear goes down. I got my first pair of quality dress shoes in 2002, a wingtip derby and it served me well. By now, the cost per wear is probably about 20 – 25 cents which is extremely low compared to a pair of shoes that you buy for 50 bucks, but you’ll have to throw after 6 or 12 months because they’re already worn out. No one can have the same shoe wardrobe, it depends on many aspects; your profession, your age, your style and also your environment. The following shoes are definitely a great start for 90% of men and can also work for you. The elegance and versatility of these shoes will definitely make you look more dapper. Shoe number 1: Black Cap Toe Oxford - It’s the first shoe you should start with. - Great for business suits and formal outfits, can also be worn with a tuxedo if you still do not own a patent leather shoe - It’s not a great shoe for jeans or khakis - It is made of box calf leather without the broguing. - Must have a leather sole Shoe #2 – The Brown Derby (in a full brogue or a semi brogue version) - A derby has an open lacing system - Perfect for casual events and semi-formal events. - You can wear it with jeans and chinos. - A great travel shoe - For color options,go with a medium brown due to its versatility. Shoe #3 – The Oxblood Cordovan Loafer - It’s a dark, red loafer and the advantage of this color is that it literally works with everything. - Works really well with any kind of suit, chino, jeans, combinations, slacks, seersucker, madras and so there’s just endless variety. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: https://gentl.mn/1V60ItE Want to see more videos?

10 Clothing Items Every Man Or Gentleman Should Have
For a more comprehensive guide on the 10 Must Have Menswear items, click here: https://gentl.mn/10-mens-clothing-must-haves #mensclothingmusthaves #notsponsored #wardrobeessentials You can check out the accessories I'm wearing here: Wool Challis Tie in Turquoise with Gray, Orange, Navy and Yellow Pattern: https://gentl.mn/2lyCEAG Orange, Green, Blue, Yellow, Silk Wool Medallion Pocket Square: https://gentl.mn/2ltB6vY 1. White dress shirt The fabric should be either made of plain poplin weave or a fine herringbone twill. Ideally, you want a medium spread collar because it can be worn with many things and it works with every face shape. You also want no chest pocket because it's a formal shirt and formal shirts don't have chest pockets. 2. Light blue dress shirt You want it to be made from a rugged fabric such as Oxford. You can also go with poplin, maybe a twill weave or anything else that stands the test of time. If you live in warmer regions, you can also get an open weave fabric, but overall, I suggest you stay clear of the chest pocket even though you could wear it because it's a less formal shirt. 3. Navy suit To start, I'd invest in a single breasted suit with notched lapels, not too skinny, not too wide, about 10cm or 4 inches for the lapel width. I would choose side vents and flap pockets. If you don't like the single-breasted style, you can also go for double-breasted with six buttons and two closing buttons. For pants, I would choose cuffed, and since I have bigger thighs, I would go pleated. Of course, that's up to you. 4. Classic navy blazer No, not the one from your suit. While you can wear that jacket as a separate with khakis, if you get a navy blazer, you should get something distinctly different. That being said, get a lighter shade of navy than your suit because it has to look different and a lighter color is usually more casual which is the origin if the blazer hence, you should go with that. 5. Gray flannel suit It's a classic wardrobe staple and men like Cary Grant wore it in North by Northwest; Gianni Agnelli made it world-famous with a specific shade from Vitale Barberis Canonico. It's not just so popular because some famous people wore it, it's very functional, versatile, and for example, you can take the pants and wear it with a navy blazer which is another very classic combination. 6. Tweed sportcoat I'm wearing one right now; it's a twill weave with a nice windowpane overcheck. There are lots of other options, for example, with a houndstooth, or a regular twill, or a shepherd's check or simply a Donegal tweed, no matter how old you are or what your style is, there's a tweed sports coat out there that suits you perfectly. 7. Gabardine trench coat It's a timeless classic that has a military history; it's a perfect raincoat. It can have a liner for colder months of the year, and in a double-breasted silhouette, it's simply elegant, and you can pair it with formal suits as well as casual combinations. 8. Chinos Chinos are cotton pants that come in a tone of khaki, sand, or stone, and they're more casual and very versatile. You can wear them with all kinds of jackets or just a shirt or a sweater and they're often office appropriate. 9. Vest or waistcoat Personally, I love vests; I have lots of them. If I'd have to pick just one vest, I'd go with a burgundy collar, maybe a flannel, or doe skin, because it's contrasting and you can pair it with anything else I discussed today and a lot more. 10. Sweater More specifically a bottle green wool sweater with a V-neck because I like to wear them all the time. If you don't, go with a crew neck that is round and it just looks better than a V-neck. It's perfect to layer over shirts, you can have it under jackets, you can wear it on its own, or with an overcoat, and just keeps you warm in the winter. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Brogues & Wingtip Shoes Guide : How To Wear, Buying Tips & Style Advice
Learn all about Brogues, Wingtips including Ghillie Brogue Shoes, Semi, half or quarter brogues. http://gentl.mn/brogues-wingtip-guide Get the accessories I'm wearing: Ancient Madder Silk Bow Tie in Yellow, Red Blue and Orange Diamond Pattern: https://gentl.mn/2kBV3MN Purple Carnation Boutonniere Life Size Lapel Flower: https://gentl.mn/2kK2uUQ Pocket Square with Monogram Initial Classic White Irish Linen: https://gentl.mn/2kK90Lp Today's video is all about brogues and wingtips. Full brogue, half brogue, quarter brogue, you name it, we'll cover it. First of all, what exactly is a brogue? The brogue shoe has its origins in Ireland, Scotland and it was meant to be an outdoor shoe. Originally, the brogue shoe was an untanned piece of cowhide which had holes to drain the water from rain or when you worked. The brogue has hole perforations, that means, no matter what style of shoe you have, a brogue is a brogue if it has holes. It doesn't matter what kind of Oxford or Monk or Derby you have, it will be a brogue as long as it has holes. When you buy a brogue shoe today, these are the hallmarks that you should look for? 1. Heels - It should have a toecap and a heel cap. 2. Hole perforations, the broguing. BROGUE STYLES: 1. full brogue. It has a very defined cut and layout, and it has lots of hole perforations. A full brogue always has this kind of winged toe cap, and it looks like a W. It also has perforations at the back of the shoe and the side of the shoe. Sometimes the full brogue is also called the wingtip because of its winged tip, the W. Now a variation of this shoe is the so-called Long wingtip where the cap extends all the way to the back. 2. Semi-brogue or half brogue - Defined by a cap toe that is straight across with what is called a medallion on the top that is the hole punching and it's decorative. 3. Quarter brogue - it has the cap toe and lacks the medallion, but it has the hole perforations along the edge. 4. Ghillie brogue - from Scotland and used today for formal evening wear and sometimes people also wear it outside of that, but it's very special because it's a lace up shoe, but it doesn't have a tongue. 5. Lately, one model has been popular is the so-called U cap or U tip brogue because it has this U shape. As I said, brogues can be Oxford, Derbies, or Monk straps. They can be very elegant, work with lots of outfits so don't shy away from these somewhat more unusual styles, they're great and also very classic. Now you may wonder, how do I wear brogue shoes? There are a few rules to consider. Rule number 1: The more broguing a shoe has, the less formal it is. For example, a wingtip full brogue in brown is less formal than a quarter brogue brown. Makes sense right? So if you have a gray, three-piece business suit, you're not going to wear a brown or red full brogue. Usually, you wear a black quarter brogue or semi brogue because they're much better. Rule number 2: Do not wear brogue shoe with evening wear. I know Prince William did it, and it looked terrible. He is not a good dresser, and you should always stay away from broguing with evening wear. If you have suits, especially more formal suits, try to go with less broguing than more. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule. For semi-formal combinations such as blazers or sport coat outfits, I recommend you wear a full brogue shoe, or you can go with a half brogue. Try to go with more browns or red. Black, maybe but only if you wear gray flannel pants with it. For jeans and chinos, I suggest you go a step further. You can take full brogues and wing tips with a thicker leather sole. You can also do boots with it. You can really experiment with different colors; you can go with suede, leather textures. Overall, just emphasize the more casual character of your outfit. With brogues, you should avoid exotic leathers, simply because you already have the hole perforations and the more holes you have, the more texture and structure you get. Now you add in a crocodile leather, alligator or ostrich, it just is too much, and you cannot see the holes anymore and it's not elegant and stylish. So if you have brogues, try to keep the leather as simple as possible, box calf leathers, may be scotch grain but not more than that. Overall, every man should have at least one brogue shoe in his shoe closet, and if you don't have one right now, please check out our videos on the first three men's shoe you should start with.

Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Light Brown and Blue - https://gentl.mn/2F6TeRR #tablemanners #diningetiquette #notsponsored Table manners are actually something your parents taught you but are actually far more important as an adult. First of all, your table manners speak volumes about your refinement and it's often interpreted as a sign of character. It's not at all about being snobby or showing off but much rather show respect, your host and your dining partners will greatly appreciate your manners. It's very important to keep in mind, proper table manners aways help you and never hurt you. The good thing is they can be learned and its never too late to do so. So what are table manners? I suggest you turn your cell phone ringer off when you enter someone else's home and put your phone in your pocket when you're with the guests. Don't leave your phone on the table because you are much more likely to pick it up and look at it which is impolite In the presence of other people. If the table is all set, you don't just walk in and sit down. Wait to be seated or wait for the queue of the host, or if they sit, you can sit as well. Ideally, want to sit up straight but comfortably, don't slouch, or cross your arms, or sit as you would on your couch while watching a football game. Don't expect to sit next to your partner and follow the lead of the hosts. Traditionally, couples were always mixed up to sit with different people. If there's a napkin on the plate or next to a plate, put it on your lap right away. If the host or hostess wants to say grace, accept the gesture for what it is and move along. Two, let's take a look at the place setting. In the Western world, an informal place will always have at least a plate, a knife, and a fork. If dessert will be served, you'll find either a little fork or a spoon on the top side of the plate. If soup is served or anything else that requires a spoon, you will also have a spoon. On the top right of the plate, you'll likely find a water glass which is always filled and a wine glass which is empty, to begin with. Sometimes you also find beer glasses; if you prefer that, if that's what's served with a meal. If you see little plate with an extra knife on a top left to your plate, that's for bread and butter. When you're done with the course, you place the fork and a knife at a four to five o'clock angle that means you're done. Three, now it's time to serve the food. Most informal dinners are family-style meaning there are bowls or platters where food is served from. For formal dinners, courses are usually plated but we talk about the intricacies of that in our formal dining etiquette video here. With bowls and anything at the table, the cardinal rule is, don't reach over anybody else and don't touch them. To start, pass the bowl around the table from the left to the right when you get the bowl you hold it and you serve yourself then you pass it on to your neighbor on the right. Always use the serving utensils and never your silverware that's on your place setting. Of course, if the host or hostess has a different idea, go with what they do. Four, finally it's time to eat. You should only start eating when everyone else has been served and a host or hostess starts to take their fork and take the lead. It is very impolite and sometimes even rude to just dig into your plate of food while the others are still empty-handed. #tablemanners #diningetiquette #notsponsored --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

What To Wear To An Interview
Read the full What To Wear To An Interview guide here: https://gentl.mn/interview-ootd Get the Tie: https://gentl.mn/2kSuiET Get the Pocket Square: https://gentl.mn/2kS9AoF As you probably know, first impressions matter and nothing communicates competence, professionalism and excellence like a well put together outfit. The goal is to look perfectly dressed for the job you're interviewing for so you show respect for the opportunity you get. The general rule is to wear a suit and a tie to the interview. There's always an exception the rule, let's say you apply for a job with a start-up design agency or with an outdoor construction company. In those situations, a suit may alienate you from your peer group and it may seem like you're the odd one out and you don't fit in the team. Let's get back to the rule. If you apply for an office job or any other traditional job, a corporate job, this is what you should do: A classic outfit shows that you are serious about your job and respectful and this is not the time to be flashy because you want to be subtle and you want not to have people judge you based on a diamond earring or a flashy ring. So what exactly does it mean to wear a traditional suit and tie? Number one is, wear a dark suit. In terms of color, that means you can go with navy, charcoal, or gray. Do not wear black because black is reserved for funerals. In terms of a silhouette, your safest best is to get a notched lapel, single breasted jacket with about 2 or 3 closing buttons or a double breasted jacket. Both are equally as correct for an interview. Two, wear a dress shirt. A dress shirt means you have a regular, button down shirt with a collar, and I suggest you get a classic collar or a slightly spread collar and then you choose the colors, either a solid white, a solid light blue, those are the best 2 colors. Avoid a button down collar or anything that's too extreme, too big or too small. Also, avoid strong patterns. Third, you want a basic, silk necktie. That means, it's no unusual weave, just regular silk, and solid colors, you can add a little texture like one with grenadine, or a jacquard weave but no paisley pattern, maybe a subtle stripe but that's about it. In terms of necktie colors, I recommend red, burgundy, blue, bottle green or maybe silver. Once you've picked out a tie, it's important to have a proper tie knot, that means it sits tight against your collar band and there's no gap like here otherwise, it looks sloppy and you want to avoid that at all cost. When it comes to tie knots, stay with a classic one, like a four in hand knot or an oriental one. Five, consider wearing a pocket square, a simple, plain, white, linen pocket square with a TV fold is simple and oozes classic elegance. Stay away from more flashy folds such as the shell folds and even the puff fold. Rule number 6: Wear over the calf socks. The reason being is that you never want to expose your hairy calves. You want simple over the calf socks that match the color of your trousers. A subtle stripe but again, don't go flashy, stay classic! Seven: Wear black shoes. Black is the ultimate interview shoe color and you should always stick with it. In terms of shapes, I recommend you go with a black oxford or a derby. If you do not have a cap toe oxford or a derby, you can actually go with a full brogue if you have it, that would work too. In terms of jewelry, I again, recommend to keep it simple. Have maybe, your wedding band, maybe cufflinks but that should be about it. If you have an interview during the winter, make sure you wear a pair of dark gloves such as gray gloves, a scarf in subtle, dark patterns and an overcoat. You never want to show up to an interview with a backpack because it screams "little schoolboy", you're a man, you're a professional and you want this job and you want to look like one, that means you have a satchel or a briefcase but not a backpack. Once you have assembled your outfit, it's important to check if you have any stains, loose threads, maybe tags or anything else that may look like you've never worn a suit before and that you're sloppy. Now you should be prepared for a classic, job interview. So what to wear to an interview in the IT , agency world or outdoor world? That's a much tougher question to answer. If a suit is too much, a blazer with a pair of chinos or khakis can still look very professional. #whattoweartoaninterview jobinterview #notsponsored ====================================== To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: https://gentl.mn/1SwaUFP Want to see more videos?

Sometimes, I drink it whenI'm alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and I drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it unless I'm thirsty." In short, you can always drink it if you feel like it. So what temperature should you serve champagne at? Short answer, not too chilled but cool. More specifically, most champagnes are good at 46 degrees Fahrenheit or about 8 degrees Celsius. For vintage champagnes, it changes a bit to about 50 degrees Fahrenheit or about 10 degrees Celsius. If your champagne is too cold or too warm, you miss out on some flavors. To get that temperature, it should be about 3-4 hours in the fridge or about 15-20 minutes into an ice bucket. If you do not have that much time, you can add salt to the ice bucket and it will cool down into just about 5 minutes. So how do you open a bottle of champagne? Basically, there are two options. The traditional one is to do the sabrage, Personally, I've done it once, it is a huge mess and it is more of a show. A better way to open a champagne is to take the bottle and remove the foil as well as the wire cage and the muzzle on top. Most of the time, there is a little lip where you can open the foil, if you can't, simply take a wine opener and cut it open. Hold the bottle in your right hand if you are right-handed, the left one if you are left-handed. The cork always on the opposite hand. Now, twist the bottle from the bottom and slightly tilt on the cork until it pops. So how should you pour champagne? First of all, what glass should you use? Back in the day, people favored a flat kind of copita style glass because champagne often had a lot of carbonation and sometimes they would even use a swizzle stick to get rid of all the bubbles. That way, everything in the champagne is quite controlled so you don't have any excess bubbles and you can use different glasses. The most popular style is probably the champagne flute which is very elegant and stylish. That being said, in recent years, regular wine glasses have become a lot more popular especially for vintage champagnes because supposedly, they help you to discern flavors better. At the end of the day, simply go with the glass you have or the one you like most. When you pour champagne, most people hold it by the neck or in the middle. The most elegant way is to put your thumb to the back hole of the bottom of the bottle and then pour it. Ideally, you hold the glass at an angle and slowly pour it down then you wait a little bit until the foam has subsided and then you top it off. you always want the glass to be about half full if its a flute, a little less if it's a wine glass. Of course, if you get a magnum bottle which is one and a half liters, you get twice as many glasses. Alright, now it's time to drink the champagne. First, look at the champagne. If it is a very light golden color, it means it is a younger champagne. If it is darker, more golden, or yellow, it means it's an older, more ripen champagne. Two, smell the champagne. Hold your nose over it and see what you can smell. Generally, there are five aroma groups. Flowers, vegetables, fruits, dried fruits, indulgent delicacies. Three, now it's time to taste the champagne. Take a little sip, let it roll down your tongue, down the palate. Wine tasters typically swirl the champagne around their mouth just like you do with a mouthwash, that way, you get the full flavor experience. Last but not the least, pay attention to the finish when it rolls down your palate. The longer the flavor lingers in your mouth, the more high end, the more expensive the champagne will be. #howtodrinkchampagne #champagne #notsponsored --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How To Choose The Right Cologne & How To Apply Men's Scents & Fragrance - Gentleman's Gazette
Check out our in-depth cologne guide: In case you missed part 1 of this series, click here: https://gentl.mn/2GikspU So how should you pick the right Cologne? #cologne #menscologne #notsponsored Understand ingredients. Most colognes consist of multiple different fragrances water and alcohol to create something that is harmonious and flattering. Traditionally, essential oils would be used to add the sense to the Cologne. Well-known essential oils include lavender rose bergamot and sandalwood for example. Personally, I'm also a big fan of lemongrass and unfortunately, most manufacturers will not list the essential oils on the ingredients list because they want to keep the secret recipe. I suggest you understand the fragrance wheel, there are many different variations. Scents are categorized into floral oriental fresh and woody sometimes also in aromatic. Ultimately, this is just a graphic and if you haven't smelled any of this before, it won't be of any help, however, once you've found colognes that you like and you've analyzed what is in them, this can help you find related colognes that you might also like. Ultimately, you want to narrow down the selection of potential favorites for you by using the wheel. For a more detailed look at the fragrance wheel, please head over to our website here. Before you buy cologne, it's essential to sample it in person. Everyone's perception of smell is different, on top of that, it's essential that you smell a cologne for at least 30 minutes, ideally up to an hour individually, before you decide on buying it. So why do I have to wait 30 minutes to one hour if I can smell the Cologne right away, you might wonder? Well actually, it all comes down to understanding the fragrance pyramid. Basically, a cologne consists of base notes, hurt notes, and top notes. The top note is the most volatile of the three, meaning it evaporates most quickly and it's what you can typically smell when you spray the Cologne onto your arm or onto a test or strip. Oftentimes, it's described as fresh or assertive or sharp and it's never on its own because you also have elements of the heart note and a base note that go into it's perception. That being said, I always suggest to test the Cologne on your skin and never just on a tester strip because your natural odor impacts the way you and others perceive that scent. The heart notes or the middle notes are about to appear strongly when the top note disappears which is generally about 20 minutes in. Typically, the notes are more round or mellowed compared to the top notes and it can last all the way up to an hour. bass notes on the other hand are the least volatile component and are often perceived as rich or heavier. It typically takes at least 30 minutes to release those base notes. In the beginning, they're overlaid by the heart notes and so that's why you want enough time with a cologne so you can truly experience what it smells like and how the sense develops over time. Even you might enjoy a scent right out of a bottle, you may actually not end up liking it at all 30 minutes in. So how do you apply Cologne? First of all, I think it depends on the strength of the Cologne so that it is stronger has to about differently than something that is very light. When in doubt, always use less. In recent years, layering of colognes has become a trend. I personally am more of a purist, I think it's best to go with that one scent because it already consists of many aromatic fragrances paired with your skin and what you eat it really is enough. You can take into consideration the environment you're in, the season, as well as the type of your skin, so you find something that truly works for you and that's flattering. Stay tuned for the final video in this series about Cologne do's and don'ts. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Men's Signet Ring Primer -  How to Find Rings For Men
To learn more about Signet Rings check out: https://gentl.mn/all-about-signet-rings #signetring #mensjewelry #notsponsored Interested in buying classic men's rings? Take our survey here: https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/mens-ring-survey/?utm_campaign=social-lead-gen&utm_medium=video&utm_source=youtube&utm_content=signet-rings&utm_term=youtube-description SHOP THE VIDEO: 1.

Mid Brown and Green Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks - https://gentl.mn/2K91K6k Once upon a time, a signet ring was the quintessential gentleman's ring and it had great importance in terms of society, culture, but even in business and politics. Today, the signet ring has lost quite a bit of its luster and sometimes, it's handed down as a family heirloom, however, at the end of the day, it's a really interesting concept and it can be a stylish accessory. So first, let's talk about the history of signet rings. Traditionally, the ring was used as a seal and it featured either a heraldic symbol, a family crest, or even a coat of arms. It was introduced around the world and it became a symbol of authenticity and somewhat like a signature. In combination with wax, it also served as a seal, for example, for letters or documents. A signet ring itself had specific markings that identified it belonging to a specific person or to a family. Interestingly, signet rings can be traced back as far as 3500 BC and specifically to Mesopotamia where they were used as a means of authenticity. If you look at the word signet, it means as much as a small seal for formal or official purposes. A signet ring was definitely not something every man wore, it was more reserved for the elite or people of a certain class and societal status. While the first signet rings had a raised pattern on the ring, subsequently, that changed into engraved Signet rings because they were used in a wax seal. This tradition holds true today and even though most people don't use a signet ring today anymore, to use in a wax seal, you'll find crests that are reversed so they could actually be used with traditional wax. So what about signet rings today? Are they a historic artifact or in fact something you can wear today? In Europe, you can still find families that passing their rings or have new ones created for their children upon graduation or other important life events, though that is definitely the exception to the rule. Most families simply don't have a crest or coat of arms. You definitely find Signet rings in the military, some men wear them showing their rank on the ring, you can also find them in fraternities, or simply as a symbol as a belonging of a club. One of the more well-known organizations that employ signet rings are the Freemasons. Today, I have yet to find someone who actually uses their signet ring to make a seal with wax and they're usually just meant to be a mark of authenticity and tradition. That being said, it's very easy to buy vintage rings on eBay these days, there are even counterfeits out there of vintage rings, or you can also have made your new ring. What are the options you have? Most rings come in 10 Karat, 14 karat, or 18 karat gold. Either a white gold or rose gold or yellow gold. You can also go with sterling silver which is a lot less expensive but also with rings like palladium which are more expensive. Most rings come with a flat stone on top that is usually set and that can be engraved. If you don't like the stone, you can also go with simple metal that is just fine. The bands are usually all solid and not decorated but you can also find Signet rings with heavy decoration on them. Traditional shapes include round, oval, or long oval, or rectangular, squares with rounded edges, or even like cut edges that gives you an octagonal look, there really is no limit under the sun as long as the stone is flat and not domed. In terms of color and stones, the most popular are black onyx, blue lapis lazuli, a bloodstone, which is a dark green with red inclusions, you can also find a carnelian which is dark red, and we use those stones also for our cufflinks which you can find in our shop here which go quite well if you want to coordinate. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Grey and Prussian Blue - https://gentl.mn/2J3RGNH 1.Money itself doesn't just automatically make you happier. I know people usually only say that once they have achieved a certain level of wealth. What I can say though is that money has the ability to make your life a lot easier, things less stressful, you don't have to worry about any upcoming emergencies, you don't do the math when you go grocery shopping, and it's just easier to focus on the things that really matter in life. I definitely feel a lot free now that I don't have to worry about paying rent or what if there's an emergency coming up, I can simply pay for it out of pocket. Instead, I can now pursue hobbies, I can take dance classes with my wife that I really enjoy, I can take piano classes, or just anything else that gives me purpose or have a sense of self improvement. 2. The self-reliance I had made me a lot stronger as a person. My parents always raised me to be very independent not just in terms of money. Other people than you would get a lot more pocket money but they didn't necessarily understand or were able to manage money better than I was. Overall, it's a lot harder to adjust to less money than to more money. I pretty much always knew if I wanted something, I simply had to work for it and do it myself. 3. Being broke or being rich is really a matter of perception. My dad's from Brazil and we lived in Germany so whenever we would go to Brazil and visit relatives, they all thought we were filthy rich so they all expected us to bring a lot of gifts and to pick up the tab and pay for the bill when in reality, my parents were in debt and had to worry about how to pay for the mortgage and how to make ends meet. But we lived in a different country and even though we had absolutely more money, relatively, we were not richer or poorer than the people in Brazil. 4. Having extra money doesn't just happen. You have to actually plan for it. If you don't manage your money upfront. You'll just spend it, at least, that's what I do and most people I know. If you never plan to set aside money for an emergency upfront chances are it'll hit you very hard and it'll have very drastic consequences. 5. You can buy pretty much anything secondhand or vintage or at a deal. Honestly, until I was in my 20s, pretty much everything I bought was either on sale at a store, it was a hand-me-down from someone, or it was a vintage item. Even though I got certain outfit elements that were quite a bit bolder and not the foundational wardrobe pieces,I still have a lot of the items from the period that I still wear today because they have a certain timeless character to it. 6. Being poor takes a lot of time. If you just always have to think about how you pay for your groceries and for your rent and for any kind of other expense, your mental capacity is just focused on that and your brain is just spinning and trying to understand where you can find something else. 7. Being poor can actually make you quite adaptive and creative when it comes to problem solving. When my car breaks now, it's easy! I just go to the dealership and have them fix it. If that isn't an option, maybe you have to borrow with someone so you can help them out and they help you out or you go to youtube and figure out how to fix it yourself. Trying to overcome an obstacle when you don't have the money to fix it is a really valuable lesson that even helps me a lot now that I'm a lot more comfortable financially. 8. You can still treat yourself if you do so responsibly. You buy little things and things that don't have a high cost or a long-term monthly recurring cost. You can go out maybe with someone at a restaurant that's not super fancy but it's small and the gesture counts and you can still very much enjoy it or maybe you buy yourself a jacket that you've always wanted and that you need because it's so cold outside but honestly always ask yourself is it something I really need or is it something I just want and if you need something every once in a while to keep going it's okay.

Job Interview Tips & Etiquette
Click here for our in depth Guide To Interview Tips & Etiquette. https://gentl.mn/interview-tips-etiquette This is part 3 of the series and so far, we covered what to wear to an interview, as well as how to prepare for an interview. First of all, you need to have the right outfit. If you missed that video, please check it out here, this is essential. Second, get a haircut before you have an interview. Make sure not to wear an overpowering cologne. Even if you have a higher end cologne, try to stay away from it for a day just take a shower beforehand and you'll be fine. In a professional setting, try to cover your tattoos, of course, if you're applying for a job at a restaurant, it's full of hipsters, you can show your tattoos. It always depends on what the job is about. Before you head out the door, make sure to remove any tags and threads because otherwise, they may think, you have never worn a suit before, you're not in a professional setting and also check for stains and holes because it makes you look sloppy. Now it's time to get to the interview, make sure to arrive thirty minutes prior to the interview time. I know that may seem like a lot, but it's essential because there can be traffic and things may go wrong and trust me, they will go wrong. Make sure to turn off your cellphone and if somebody offers you something to drink, don't ask for anything elaborate, just go with plain, non-carbonated water. Next up is interview demeanor, it's very important that you give a good first impression. When somebody comes in, it's important to shake their hand with a firm grip and you have to look them into the eye. Also, offer them a copy of your resume and then let them take the lead. You're in an interview, and you just go along. Tone, body language, and grammar are very important because you want to project professionalism and confidence at all times. If you're wondering about interview questions, I suggest you check out our interview prep video where we discuss interview question strategies. Once they're done with their questions, it's time for you to ask good questions so it's best you prepare those, make sure to have about 2-3 very good questions that make them think "Wow, this guy really thought about the job and it's a smart question". After the interview is done, it'stime to depart. First, you should ask them what the next steps are then you can shake hands, thank them for their time and then it's time to leave. This is not the time to flirt with the sexy secretary or with anybody else in the building, you simply take your stuff and just leave. Once you're back home, it's important to follow up and it's not just an email, ideally, it's a handwritten thank you note where you express your gratitude that you had your interview and you reiterate that you're interested in the position. This shows you're future employer that you're willing to go the extra mile and that separates you from the crowd. Now, you simply wait for a response. If you don't hear back from them, you can reach out again and simply follow up, that shows them that you're persistent. Alternatively, you could get a letter of rejection, and now would be a good time to ask what exactly they did not like about you so you could improve for future job interviews. If you receive a verbal offer over the phone or in person, smile, thank them and let them know that you're excited to get it in writing. At this point, it's time for salary negotiations. It's best to come in prepared and look at portals like glassdoor so you know the range of the salary that you can expect but don't overdo it and don't undervalue yourself. Just make sure if you're asking for more money than the average, make sure to back it up. Ideally, the best ways to do it is to one, tell them how you make them more money. Two, how you save the money and three, how you make customers happier. If you want more vacation, now is the time to negotiate it so you should bring it up and explain what you need and why you need it. Last but not least, make sure to give them references if they ask for it, only if they ask for it. #interviewtips #interviewetiquette #notsponsored ====================================== To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: https://gentl.mn/1SaWtY8 Want to see more videos?

Every man should be able to tie his own bow tie. Only boys at prom wear pre-tied bow ties or clip-on bow ties. You should never wear that, it shows, it's too symmetrical, it's too perfect, it looks cheap. Elegant men like Winston Churchill would always wear their bow tie slightly skewed and that shows the true character of a perfectly tied bow tie. It is not symmetrical. In recent years, bow ties have become much more popular and this is the easiest way to tie it. If you have an adjustable bow tie, adjust to the right length. Usually, you use the neck size that you have for your shirt but you can play around with it. If you go for a fixed length bow tie like the black bow ties from Fort Belvedere, you won't need to adjust anything. Once it's adjusted, throw it around your neck, flop down your collar and button the top button. You may want to pull on the inside so it looks neat. Alright, this is how you tie it. First, the left side of your bow tie to be about an inch or one and a half inches longer than your right one. So, long end goes over short end. Pinch with your left hand. Now, the longer end goes up through the hole and you pull it tight. Now, your right hand, you leave your bow tie here.With your left hand, you hold that end of the bow tie and you bring your index finger between your body and the bow tie and you move it over to create a bow tie shape which you can see here. Now with your right hand, bring the other piece in, the longer piece and fold it over. Now it really looks like a bow tie from the front. So what I do now is I take this part of the bow tie and hold it together like so. Now I switch my hands and what I can see now is that I created a hole back here and this is where this part has to go through. Now I create another bow tie shape here and I do that with my fingers like so, fold it up so I get a shape similar to a bow tie and I just push it through that little hole recreated. Now, I pull the folded ends so it tightens the knot of my bow tie and there you go, the bow tie. If you're now interested in quality self-bow ties, take a look at our shop where we offer exclusive Fort Belvedere bow ties in many different colors and shapes and materials.

Monk Strap Shoes Guide - How To Wear & Buy Single & Double Monks
https://gentl.mn/monk-strap-shoes Score the accessories in the vid: Pocket square: https://gentl.mn/2ltOosu Knit tie: https://gentl.mn/2kfk4wt Boutonniere: https://gentl.mn/2kSpIqb Traditionally, the monk strap shoe had a single buckle and that's what the shoe looked like for years. Over time, men wanted to create a different style so they added a second buckle. Construction: You have an upper vamp as well as a buckle strap and then the heel. In this case, the shoe has some broguing, wingtip but that's entirely optional. The same is true for the double monk shoe, the only difference can be that the buckles in the straps can be in different positions, either here or there, the spacing between the buckles can be different and the angles and the style can be different. Most monk strap shoes have a little part of an elastic, right behind here because it's a very inflexible shoe and you still have to get in and out of it. Naturally, not all feet are alike and therefore you can find certain holes in the strap to adjust it to your foot. In terms of buckle designs, you find all kinds of shapes. Thicker square ones, rectangular, round, half round, octagonal, hexagonal, you name it and it will probably exist. Off the rack, these buckles are usually made of brass and then either plated with chrome or palladium or with a natural patina which is actually quite attractive. If you go bespoke, sometimes they'll also use sterling silver or even solid gold. In terms of material, of course, classic, plain calf leather is the number one choice. It's easy to take care of, even get a nice patina and it's quite robust. In terms of colors, I would suggest you start with something with a dark brown range or maybe something reddish like burgundy because it's versatile and you can wear it with so many outfits. Once you've mastered dark brown and reddish brown, you can think about other colors such as tan. On top of that, a dark brown suede monk strap can be very good for a casual and business casual wardrobe. A black monk strap shoe is only recommended if you wear grays and charcoals, otherwise, I really suggest you stick with brown or burgundy. Of course, once you've got these colors covered, you can play a little more and get a spectator monk strap either with linen or with leather, you can even use tweed, basically, the possibilities are endless. Another somewhat popular monk strap shoes is exotic leather such as alligator and lizard. If you go that route, ake sure you get a matte alligator leather or lizard because it looks much more sophisticated and the shiny finish looks rather cheap and it's definitely something you want to avoid. Cutaway Monk Strap: It's an entirely different look once you wear it and I think it works better with slightly shorter pants so you end up seeing the buckle and it's basically a matter of personal choice. Of course in the shoe world, you always want to be classic yet different and so someone had the idea to do a double cutaway monk strap and it can look quite elegant although it's a shoe that you can buy once you have all the basics covered. Apart from shoes, you can also invest in monk strap boots which can actually look quite elegant especially with one buckle. Because it's a boot, the strap is slightly higher but you can also add a second or sometimes a third strap and unlike with the shoes, it looks quite good. So how do you wear a monk strap shoe? Basically, it's a slightly less formal shoe than an oxford or a derby, that makes it very versatile in today's day and age. It pairs well with casual outfits, business casual outfits, blazers, sport coats, especially combinations. I also like to wear it with tweed and apart from that, it always gives you a unique look because there are way more oxfords and lace-up shoes out there than there are monk straps. #monkstraps #notsponsored #mensshoes _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Want to stay updated?

Proper Pants Break & Length How To Hem Suit Trousers, Dress Slacks & Chinos: Full, Half or No Break?
For the Written Guide on Proper Pants Break and Length, visit the link below: https://gentl.mn/proper-pants-break #pantsbreak #pantslength #notsponsored Interested in the accessory I'm wearing? SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Dark Magenta Purple Lotus Flower Silk Boutonniere Lapel Pin Flower - https://gentl.mn/2nDeKYR What's a break? The break is when the front of your pants or trousers hits your shoe and creates a little dent that is elegant and not too extreme. No break is when the hem of your pants just hang straight and doesn't even touch the shoe at all. Half break is if you see a slight dent in the front and full break if you have a noticeable dent in the front of the pants but none in the back. If you see pants that have dents in the front and in the back they are simply too long and it looks extremely sloppy. Why should you care about the break in your pants? It really has an impact on the overall neatness of your outfit. If you wear a nice robe stripe double-breasted suit and your pants are either too long or too short, it makes you look goofy or sloppy. Also if you're a tall man and you have very short pants it exaggerates your height and you look even taller and sometimes like a clown. Also if you have a certain pair of socks that you want to show off maybe a half break is exactly what you want because with a full break your socks will be invisible. To determine what break is right for you, first look at your pant hem. Is it cuffed or is it uncuffed? If it's cuffed that means you need less of a break. If you have an uncuffed pants and you go with no break it simply looks too short and the lack of the weight means that your pants will probably get stuck to your socks and stay further up. If you wear cuffed pants you already have an advantage because you have more weight which pulls down your trousers more and it just creates a cleaner line and therefore you can have a shorter pants length and less of a break. If you prefer uncuffed trousers you could talk to an alterations tailor and add little lead weights to the size of your pants that way you have the same effect as with a cuffed trouser and you can get a very neat look. Now with a tight pair of pants they touch your shoe a lot earlier than with a wider cut pair of pants where they touch it at the bottom of your laces. The wider the pants are, the longer you can hem them. The slimmer and tighter they are the shorter you have to hem them. If you have uncuffed trousers in a wide full cut style you have to cut them a little wider but keep in mind even with a full break you just want a nice dent in the front and none in the back. One thing I'm personally extremely fond of is a angled hem. This is something you usually only find in bespoke garments especially when it's a cuffed angle hem. When you angle a pair of pants with cuffs you actually have to create a faux cuff that is separately cut from something but it has the advantage that it's always long in the back and it probably can even touch almost the heel of your shoe but in the front it's cut higher so you get that slight break. It looks elegant with a black tie or white tie outfit because you get that slight break but that long line in the back. Having angled pant hems is definitely one of the little tricks of the trade and if your alterations tailor doesn't know how to do an angle hem with cuffs you probably have to seek out the tailor or someone who is really experienced with custom clothing. Of course you can only do that if you have a lot of extra width or an unfinished pair of pants. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

It puts a lot of strain on the thread of your tie and it is more likely to rip in the near future. Do: Simply reverse the process the way you tied it. Loosen your knot and pull out the shorter end gently. Note that you have to pull out the longer end first using your thumb. Then you loosen the whole thing gently with your fingers. Open the top button and then you simply and gently pull out your tie. If you've been wearing your tie the entire day, there may be a few wrinkles. If the tie has good interlining, you can get rid of the wrinkles by rolling up the tie. To do that, take the tie in half and roll it around your fingers. Leave it for about a day. With a regular tie, you may simply hang it up. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: http://gentl.mn/23coQfB Want to see more videos?

White Tie DO's & DON'Ts - Tailcoat & Full Fig Dress Code Guide
Want to stand out on your next white tie affair? Click here: https://gentl.mn/white-tie-ensemble How to tie a bow tie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2I3cfa0BOOc SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. White Marcella Pique Single End Bow Tie - https://gentl.mn/2wWdRMv 2. Evening Scarf in White Silk Satin - https://gentl.mn/2uUerJz 3. Pocket Square with Monogram Initial - https://gentl.mn/2wWCRDH 4. Over The Calf in Black Silk - https://gentl.mn/2vvIhaz White tie is the most formal dress code you can wear in the western hemisphere and unfortunately, most men get it wrong. Don'ts 1. Don't wear slippers. Now, they may look very similar to opera pumps also known as court shoes and they have this bow, they're made out of a patent leather. 2. Do not wear an obviously fake boutonniere. A boutonniere is a lapel flower and it's almost obligatory for a white tie ensemble. You can get away without it but since it's a celebratory event, it really looks much better. 3. Do not wear a necktie. A necktie is only appropriate for a business suit but never for either black tie or white tie ensembles. 4. Don't wear a regular suit. If the invitation states full fig, white tie, or formal attire, and white tie is required, you need a tailcoat. 5. Do not wear a white or off white dinner jacket. 6. Do not wear a regular tuxedo if the invitation states white tie. Simply either invest in a full ensemble which can be difficult may be even rent it. 7. Do not wear spats with evening wear. 8. Do not wear black shirts. The only acceptable shirt for a white tie ensemble is either a Marcella pique front that is stiff or a boil front that is likewise stiff. 9. Do not wear a designer's name or label visibly on your clothing. 10. Do not wear wrist watches with white tie. Back in the day, it was impolite to look at your watch when in company because it would imply you have better things to do. 11. Do not wear a studless shirt and don't skip the bow tie. 12. Do not wear a morning coat. 13. Do not wear a cummerbund with a white tie ensemble. Cummerbunds are not appropriate with white tie. 14. Do not wear notched lapels on your evening tailcoat. 15. Make sure your shirt does not come untucked with your white tie ensemble. 16. Do not wear waistcoats that are too long. Generally, it's a hallmark of someone who doesn't wear black tie very often to have a waistcoat that peaks out underneath the front of the evening tailcoat. Do's 1. Do wear a pocketwatch. 2. Do show some shirt cuff. 3. Wear boutonniere and a top hat. 4. Wear your white tie ensemble with confidence. 5. Wear an evening overcoat and pair it with gloves and a nice silk scarf in the winter. 6. Wear an evening waistcoat. 7. Wear patent leather evening shoes. #whitetie #formalevents ##notsponsored -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

History Of Cologne & Fragrances for Men - Gentleman's Gazette
Learn how the cologne came to be: https://gentl.mn/2FOfVen ***Stay tuned for more videos about COLOGNES! Cologne has been around since the old days of Mesopotamia in Egypt. It was quite rudimentary at the time but essentially was considered to be a part of alchemy. The first perfume was a person known as Tapputi. By using distilled flowers, oils, and other aromatics, Tapputi was able to create the first kind of perfume which is similar to what we know today. By the 9th century, the book of chemistry of perfume was written by the Arab Al-Kindi. Later on, a Persian chemist of the name of Avicenna experimented with extracting oils from flowers by distilling them; particularly roses. The perfume was introduced to Europe during the medieval period. It would take until the 14th century until Hungarians created the first alcohol-based perfume. At this time, perfumes or fragrances were only available to the very rich and they were usually used to mask the odors on the streets. Why is cologne called cologne? Actually, it aids back to the German city of Cologne which in German is actually called KOLN. In 1709, the Italian native Giovanni Maria Farina who had emigrated to Cologne, invented the first perfume as we know it today. He named his creation eau de Cologne which means as much as water of Cologne. A single vial of that stuff sold for half the annual salary of a public servant in Germany at the time. quite a bit isn't it? It was believed to be a Fountain of Youth and doctors even encourage their patients to drink it. During the 19th century, there were disputes by the name of Farina and eventually, the eau de cologne 4711 was created towards the end of the 19th century. It is still around today in the supposedly same recipe and you can buy it everywhere. What is cologne today? On the one hand, it means any kind of fragrance for men. On the other hand, the term eau de cologne is used to determine the aromatic portions of a fragrance. #cologne #cologneguide #menscologne --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

You can also get a tan loafer, something in brown, it is a little more classic. You could also go for penny loafers which are very versatile especially during the summer. It can also look great to have spectators in two tone colors or different materials such as suede and box calf. 1:48 Chukka Boots Invest in is a pair of chukka boots that is unlined which is typical for spring. It is soft. It is slightly above your ankle but it's just a very cool look. 2:15 Shoelaces It's a very small investment, but nothing changes the look of a pair of shoes as dramatically as just different color shoelaces. 3:00 Polo Shirt Chance are you already have a white, a navy and a gray polo shirt in your wardrobe. And while those are versatile, if you want to spice it up a little bit, go with something that is vibrant. 3:29 Spring Sport Coat Invest in a spring sport coat that can also be worn during summer time. 3:53 Chinos A wardrobe staple for men because it can be worn to the office or dressed down and worn casually with a pair of boat shoes and a polo shirt. 4:09 Colorful socks Use colorful socks. Colorful two-toned socks can easily be paired because of the two different colors. But they are not over the top and too strong that you just stand out 4:43 Belt All woven belt with Richard yarns either all leather or mixed with cotton yarns is very elegant yet casual. The other casual belts to look into are fabric belts. 5:58 Neck Ties or Bow Ties Because it is spring, you want something that's more vibrant that is louder and has a cool contrast with the rest of your outfit. 6:32 Open weave shirt I really love it for spring time because it is open and airy. It has a crisp touch and air allows the air to flow through so you don't over heat. 7:29 Trench Coat It's perfect for colder climates. It's also great for travel especially in darker colors such as black or navy, otherwise go with a traditional khaki color. 7:58 Harrington Jacket If you don't want to wear a trench coat, go for Harrington jacket because it is also light weight and sometimes they come in reversible options. 8:30 Boutonniere You see the nice beautiful flowers outside, sometimes you can just grab one and put it in your lapel and it looks awesome. The problem is, you rarely find those flowers, you don't want to steal them from someone. Often they wilt and sometimes the pollen even stains your clothes. 8:51 NATO watch strap No matter what kind of watch you have, adding a fabric strap, just like a NATO watch will instantly transform it into a more casual looking spring-summer watch -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How To Drink Like A Gentleman
The art of drinking like a gentleman: https://gentl.mn/drinking-101 SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Light Lavender Geranium Silk Boutonniere - https://gentl.mn/2NL28sx 2. White Linen Pocket Square with Navy Blue Handrolled X Stitch - https://gentl.mn/2EwQulk 3. Grenadine Silk Tie in Brown - https://gentl.mn/2RPp3WR 4. Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks Charcoal and Light Gray - https://gentl.mn/2CiNDd3 Whiskey Tasting Guide & How To Taste Whisky - https://gentl.mn/2AcPVsR The Hip Flask Guide - https://gentl.mn/2J15arF Drinking, and by that, I mean alcoholic beverages, can be a pleasure, a social expectation or tricky at times because it may damage your reputation. For example, the office holiday party almost always produces some gossip because some people to drink too much. The same goes for weddings or business dinners, you do not want to be the guy that ruins the evening for everyone or be responsible for not closing the deal. Being intoxicated always has an impact on how you behave and how you are perceived. The truth is, we are never at our best behavior when intoxicated and the potential of long-term regret outweighs the pleasure of one night on the town, To top it all off, everyone has a smartphone these days and they take photos and videos and they may end up getting to your employer, your mom, or to that uncle who had you in his will. So the main goal of drinking like a gentleman is to enjoy yourselves while still being civil and in full control of yourself. That being said, here are 8 practical tips that you can apply when you go out and drink. Most importantly, know your limit. Everyone has different reactions to the amount of alcohol they drink and it is up to you to know what is acceptable and what is too much. Two, stick with the classics. Most bartenders will be able to mix up a gin and tonic o an old-fashioned. Moreover, keep in mind, a gentleman drinks his beverage from a cup or a glass, not from the can or the bottle. Four, pace yourself. You are under no obligation to keep up with how much other people are drinking. Ideally, you can establish your own pace and one of the best ways to fend off questions for another drink is to simply have your glass half full. Five, be immune to peer pressure. Honestly, that is one of the hardest things for most men. Most people love to drink and enjoy doing so in a company and that may mean that they will bug you consistently. Six, do not push drinks on other people. You may be really into paying this round of tequila shots but not everyone might be into that. Seven, always treat the restaurant or bar staff with respect. I know that can be hard if you have been waiting in line for twenty minutes and you feel someone else has cut in line and gotten served ahead of you. Keep your composure. Last but not least, keep your hands to yourself. Drinking will usually relax even the most guarded person's view on interpersonal space but getting too close to someone or even touch them is a clear indicator that you have had way too much to drink. Also, a bonus tip, if you go to a bar to have a drink, don't sneak in your flask and drink from it. In conclusion, drinking like a gentleman means you should not behave in a way that makes you a pain in the ass to others around you. Very simple, isn't it? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Correct Sleeve Length For Dress Shirts, Jackets & Suits + 8 Mistakes To Avoid
See our full-fledged guide here: https://gentl.mn/sleeve-length-guide Get the tie I'm wearing in the vid: https://gentl.mn/2kvOVFW How long should your sleeve be on a regular shirt with french cuffs or double cuffs for cuff links? How about for Barrel cuffs? First, let's talk about the length of a French cuff shirt, it should always end at the root of your thumb. The shirt should have this length no matter whether your arm is hanging or angled. If your shirt gets shorter when you move your arm, that means that the armhole is too big and it simply shortens the shirt when you move. French cuffs form a horseshoe shape. Ideally, this should not be too pinched and tight. It should also not be so wide that you can put on cuff links and then put your shirt on afterwards by sliding your hand through the sleeve out. The button hole on your shirt cuff should be exactly in the middle of the cuff and the button hole should be towards the edge. In Britain sometimes, you find shirts that have the button hole moved towards the front edge of the cuff with the intention to show more of your cuff links underneath your jacket sleeve. In Europe, particularly in Germany or Austria, this is usually a feature reserved for black tie or white tie shirts. If you wear a wristwatch, you should always consider that when you get your cuff size because it has the fit underneath of it. A custom shirt usually accommodates for that. For barrel cuff shirts with buttons, the length rule is exactly the same, should reach the root of the thumb and they should fit tightly against your wrist, again, with enough space for a watch. Now that you know how long a shirt should be, the question is, how much shirt cuff should you show? If you go through history, and if you consult different people, you realize different lengths are considered proper by different people. For example, Allan Flusser suggests you show a half an inch of cuff, shirt cuff that is, underneath your jacket sleeve. On the other hand, Bernhard Roetzel, famous author of the book "The Gentleman" suggests just one cm which is about 2/5 of an inch. To learn more about him, check out our video interview here. If you go back to the 50's, you find guys that suggest just a quarter inch or about 0.6 cm or alternatively, 2 cm which is 4/5 if an inch or almost an entire inch. We, at Gentleman's Gazette, believe that it's a matter of taste and personally, I prefer anything in around half an inch, maybe a little bit more. What's more important than an exact measurement is proportion. Ideally, you want the amount of shirt cuff you show here to correspond to the amount of shirt you show on the back of your neck. So if you have half an inch on the back of your neck, you should show about half an inch on your shirt cuff. It's much easier to adjust the sleeve length of the jacket or a shirt, rather than adjusting it on the neck. If you decide you don't want to show any shirt cuff at all, make sure that the sleeve length is not too long but rather proper and ends right past the little crease in your hand or the root of your thumb. The other problem a lot of men face is having a large shirt cuff fit into a tapered jacket sleeve. That leaves you with a cuff bunching up and it simply looks terrible. if you have a barrel cuff with buttons on your shirt, you definitely want a more tapered jacket sleeve otherwise, it looks disproportionate. Traditionally, button cuffs were a bit more casual so with the more formal double-breasted suit, you would always wear French cuffs or double cuffs with cuff links. Today, you can basically wear anything you want but if you want to adhere to the classic dress code you should always go with barrel cuffs for more casual ensembles and French cuffs for more formal outfits. In my opinion, Prince Charles does a very good job in balancing his shirt cuffs, his sleeves, and his neck. Next time you see a picture of him or see him on TV, pay attention to that. #sleevelength #propersleevelength #notsponsored __________________________________________________________________ Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Want to stay updated?

How to Tie the Nicky Knot
Learn how to tie the Nicky knot in this step by step video tutorial by Sven Raphael Schneider. The Nicky is a great full and asymmetrical tie knot for wider collars. http://gentl.mn/mastering-the-nicky-knot Simply put, the nicky knot is a Four in hand or a Victoria knot on steroids. It’s simply bigger but slightly asymmetrical unlike the Windsor or Half Windsor knot. The name is derived from Nicky, a middle eastern tie maker. Invented by their salesman Ernesto Curami who came up with this knot. This became particularly known in Italy but never really made its mark outside the country. The nicky knot's size will depend on the thickness or thinness of your tie. Here is how you tie it: 1. Start with the seam side up on both ends. The shorter end, the slimmer end should be on your right hand and the wider end on your left. 2. The Slim end should be about a hand and a half above the waistband. 3. The slimmer end goes on top of the wide end. Bring up the wide end, pull it up, pull down and then pull it to the other side. Then, bring the wide end back over and back up. 4. Pull it up tight and bring the front shell of the tie back through the knot and hold it in place then, pull through. Make sure it unfolds if it falls over. 5. Now, pull, pinch it a little if you wish to have a dimple. 6. Once you're satisfied, pull the slim end up and wiggle. 7. Adjust the knot until you are happy with the look. This knot also works with a thin tie, a medium thick tie and a thick tie like this yellow jacquard silk from Fort Belvedere. In terms of collars, the nicky knot is best with a medium spread to a slightly cutaway collar. It will not look great with a wide spread collar because the tie ends will be exposed on both sides. Also with a classic collar because it is much narrower and may overlap with the knot. Ideally, choose a medium spread to slightly spread shirt collar regrdless of the thickness or thinness of your tie. Obviously it’s a big knot so avoid wearing it with tab collars, collar pins or bars. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: http://gentl.mn/1MPcMNo Want to see more videos?

Cologne Dos &  Dont's - 10 Things Men Should Know About Fragrance - Gentleman's Gazette
Read up on all things COLOGNE, here: https://gentl.mn/all-about-cologne SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Two-Tone Knit Tie - https://gentl.mn/2CnwLmf 2. Monkey's Fist Knot Cufflinks - https://gentl.mn/2F614z0 3. Navy and Yellow Shadow Stripe Ribbed Socks - https://gentl.mn/2BQGwZj 4. Linen Pocket Square with Yellow Handrolled X Stitch - https://gentl.mn/2otEneH First of all, let's talk about the dos of wearing cologne. One, do test the intensity of your cologne before wearing it in public. You can do so at home because some colognes are very overpowering while others are very light and you want something that is balanced. Two, before you make a purchase do check with your spouse or your significant other and see if they like it. Even if you love the scent if your partner doesn't want to be around you it's not good for your relationship and there's simply so many other scents out there and chances that there's one that both of you will like is very high. Do one or two sprays max for a regular intensity cologne. Four, do wear cologne that works with other scents harmoniously. Maybe your jacket has a certain smell. Maybe your hair product has a certain sort of smell. You don't want colliding scents in one ensemble because it may be off. Five, do spray and moisturize before putting on cologne. That being said I suggest you go with fragrance-free lotion because it won't impact the scent of the cologne. Six, do buy cologne from a reputable store because colognes can be easily faked today. Buying them on eBay or Amazon may be a great way to get something that is faked. Now let's talk about the don'ts of wearing cologne. One, don't rub in cologne on your skin but just let it settle naturally onto your skin. Two, don't wear alone in the presence of people which have allergies or an aversion to cologne. You might think people are really sensitive but there are truly some people who collapse when they smell cologne. Three, don't put on more cologne just because you can't smell it anymore. Over time your nose and your sense of smell and gets desensitized for your cologne so it's the best to ask someone else that you know such as your partner whether they can still smell it, otherwise, you're just overpowering the people around you. Likewise, don't spray cologne in the air and walk through it. It's simply a waste of it so rather apply it directly on your skin. Don't buy or use bargain colognes from the drugstore. It's something that's reserved for teenage boys. And no, the Axe or Gillette won't make women follow you around the block or fall from the sky because they find you so attractive. Also, don't buy cologne for the great-looking bottle. Most of the times designers put a lot of effort in the marketing as well as the bottle because they want to associate things with positive things in your life so you like the scent but ultimately always go for what's in the bottle and try to disregard the rest. Last but not least, don't save cologne for a special occasion because usually the essences inside can only be stabilized for about three years. #notsponsored #cologne #menscologne --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?
