The Essence Of A Gentleman
Times May Change. Being A Gentleman Should Not.

Certain things never go out of style. Gentleman Rogue was founded to pay homage to these beliefs, actions, and sartorial tastes that seem to be from a bygone era but remain timeless. These values may not be easy to live, but that's what makes them so valuable. After all if they were common, being a Gentleman wouldn't be the rarity it is today.
STYLE IS NOT OPTIONAL
Colin Firth as Harry Hart, the consummate Gentleman in Kingsman
A Gentleman possesses a sense of style unlike other men - refined, cultured, and while much effort may have been put into his attire the Gentleman will make it appear effortless. His clothes will look like they were made for him, his accessories will appear as if they fell into place naturally, and his demeanor is befitting of a Gentleman no matter what the ensemble entails. Whether he is attending the opera, a romantic dinner with his significant other, or a game with the guys his outfit - from the glasses framing those piercing eyes to the shoes fit for a king to the pocket square and cufflinks bringing it all together - will exude a relaxed confidence that will draw others to him to enjoy the occasion.
After all, the first step to being respected is to look respectable.
A GENTLEMAN ALWAYS ACTS LIKE ONE, NO MATTER THE OCCASION
Her chariot awaits - a Gentleman opens the car door for his Lady
Chivalry is not dead. We believe a Gentleman should open a door, pull out a chair, and offer his coat on a chilly evening as a sign of the high esteem he holds his partner in. He respects his partner, cherishes them, and will show this through these simple acts of kindness and care.
The Gentleman's partner comes first, always.
BE HAPPY TO SERVE, AND IN SERVICE A GENTLEMAN WILL FIND HAPPINESS
A Gentleman understand that a little kindness goes a long way - just ask Idris Elba
A Gentleman can find something good and interesting in everyone, and strives to make the introvert feel like the most interesting person in the room. Conversation seems to be a lost art in this age of texting your dinner companion, but not for the Gentleman - indeed he is always ready with interesting facts, tidbits, and the perfectly placed bon mot for the moment. And when it comes to providing assistance in any way, shape or form he is happy for the opportunity and the privilege to do so.
