Being a gentleman isnÆt just being a nice guy, or a considerate guy, or the type of guy someone might take home to meet their mother. A gentleman realizes that he has the unique opportunity to distinguish himself from the rest of the crowd. He knows when an email is appropriate, and when nothing less than a handwritten note will do. He knows how to dress on the golf course, in church, and at a party. He knows how to breeze through an airport without the slightest fumble of his carry-on or boarding pass. And those conversational icebreakersùôWhere do I know you from?ö A gentleman knows better. Gentlemanliness is all in the details, and John Bridges is reclaiming the idea that menùgentlemenùcan be extraordinary in every facet of their lives.
