The style of real gentlemen doesn’t change much but there is just so few of them nowadays. Style doesn’t have much to do with money. It is rather an attitude. It’s shaving every morning and getting dressed with a shirt and a tie. It’s clean shoes and knowing how to wear a hat. Most men don’t bother anymore. I don’t mind because style has never been something for everybody. There was a time though when every man wore a suit, a tie and a hat. But this time seems to be over and gone. I don’t like the present style of wearing a suit without a tie. I also got tired of slim fitting clothes. A tight fit doesn’t guarantee a good fit. But tight fit is easy to sell off the rack.
