Patrick Grant:
“Wearing a shirt and jacket with no tie just doesn’t look right. All of that engineering is designed to hold a tie, and without one it just looks drab. It looks unfinished. But then the pocket-handkerchiefs are having a massive revival, so it’s funny.”
“Being a gentleman in the modern age is about protecting the craftsmanship that goes into these beautiful things, and about living in a considered way. It’s about being an interesting human, about being inquisitive, about understanding things and knowing about the things you’re surrounding yourself with in life. And it’s also about allowing yourself to get drunk at lunchtime and have a great afternoon.”
“How you go about living your life is what sets you apart as a gentleman, rather than necessarily the things that you wear.”
