My Man Tom

In my eyes, Tom Ford can do no wrong, and he only made me love him a teensey bit more this morning when I read his Five Gentlemanly Commandments:

1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.
2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.
3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they're walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.
4. Don't be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background.
5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.

I think we need more Toms in the world.

  1. Tom Ford is correct. This is what Grampa and I tried to teach our sons. I sure hope they arent running around the city in shorts and flipflops!!
