A gentleman is the one who distinguishes himself from the masses, with a touch of eccentricity. But not the kind of eccentricity you notice before noticing the man. I do believe in dress codes, however, as I think a gentleman should wear the right clothes at the right place. A gentleman can be a surfer or a banker in a suit-and-tie. Surfers are gentlemen in their own way, in the sense that you’ll never spot a surfer catching a wave in a slip; he’ll always wear swim shorts. Keep in mind that a dress code has many sides to it. I always like to teeter on the edge of a dress code in order to maintain a sense of individuality.
