Recently, my wife showed me a post about 10 things why dressing up is overrated and if you’re a regular follower of the Gentleman’s Gazette, you probably know that I would not agree with that statement.
That being said, I do dress down on occasion which means I dress less formally than I usually do. The basic arguments in that article were that one, it costs money and two, it wastes time, and three, that it panders to what other people think of you rather than what you think of yourself.
In most offices today, business casual is a firmly rooted dress code. As far as dressing for the office goes, a lot depends on the culture but over the years, things have changed dramatically and today, we go through the decades and we will give you a specific rundown of what items to wear, what not to wear, and particularly, what shoes you can focus on.
We should learn to speak as soon as we learn to talk. I hope the reader forgive me for the wordplay, but more often than not, we find out that our friends and colleagues do not listen to themselves – and if they did, they’d be appalled! We hope this Gentleman’s Gazette article helps you to remember some guidelines for a proper gentleman’s speech, which, we are sure, you did learn before.
These days, your reputation can be trashed more easily than ever before, thanks to the Internet. One Instagram picture, one Facebook comment, one tweet, one poor moment of judgment, or one accusation, is all it takes to leave a lasting mark in a place where nothing ever disappears. A single instance of bad behavior, even if you think it’s not a big deal, may haunt you forever and it’s simply best to be on your guard and second guess things whether it’s a good idea.
