7 Things Every Would-Be Gentleman Should Own

Would you rather be perceived as an old-school gentleman than a standard lad? Who wouldn’t rather be a Bond figure than just like every other guy these days? If you aspire to be a true gentleman, there are certain items you’ll need in your wardrobe and your household to really live up to the classic image. You don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune to achieve this persona – it’s all about finding great-quality items rather than focusing on quantity.

A proper liquor cabinet: When you invite your new lady-friend over for a late night drink, you’ll want to offer her something more impressive than a can of beer she doesn’t want or a glass of your local supermarket’s mid-range wine. Invest in an old-fashioned wooden liquor cabinet and begin to stock it with high-quality liquor and a variety of drinks to suit every taste, from Single Malt Whiskey to sherry.

A well-fitted suit: Poorly fitting suits are an immediate giveaway of a man who isn’t quite sure about his style, or who doesn’t know how to dress to impress. A bespoke, tailored suit that fits you perfectly will come in handy for a wide range of occasions – pick a colour that’s adaptable like dark gray or navy and then you can accessorise to suit the event you’re attending.

A classic scent: Want to be a true gentleman? Find a signature scent that suits your character and personal style, and then wear it on a daily basis. The cologne you choose should age well on your skin throughout the day (test it out before you buy to make sure of this) and work well for both day and night. If you choose wisely, people will come to associate that masculine scent with your personality.

A posh watch: This is one to save up for if you’re on a budget, but you can put it on the to-do list. We’re not talking about tacky, over-the-top watches here, but a classic, high-quality watch can instantly create a solid first impression when it comes to job interviews, dates, and business networking. A good watch will last for years to come and could be a wonderful heirloom to pass down to your own son.

A classy winter coat: The way you tackle winter fashion can make or break your style credentials. A beautiful wool overcoat immediately elevates your look while keeping you warm and cosy when the weather gets chilly. Invest in one that you can wear for several years without getting tired of.

A real umbrella: Speaking of bad weather, when the rain starts to fall, imagine how much better you’ll look pulling out a wooden-handled, classically designed umbrella rather than some cheap thing you bought on the corner shop that will break as soon as the wind blows? It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy – just sturdy and stylish enough to help you stand out on a rainy day.

A decent book collection: What sets a gentleman apart from the average guy? He values education, culture and lifestyle. You can display your appreciation for the arts by beginning a collection of classic books that you display in a bookshelf.Aim to keep them in good condition so they can be enjoyed for years to come.
