Ah, the Gentlemen. Glenn O'Brien states that the term Gentlemen comes from the word "Gens" or of the "genes". In other words, to be a gentlemen, it's in you, in your DNA, your blood. When I think of what it means to be a gentlemen I am drawn to two ideas
1.) Jazz musicians from the late 50's to 60's who understood that what they were playing
was just as important as what they were wearing. Musical style and personal style
go hand in hand.
2.) "Character is the way your treat people who you know
can do nothing for you"
