1. Always watch what you say
Only a child or a fool misuses the power of his tongue. Words have the ability to build up or tear down. And once said, they can never be taken back. A gentleman chooses wisely.
2. Be a contributing member of society/Give without expecting anything in return
Be the first to say hello to a stranger passing you on the street. Give something back to someone less fortune than you whether that be time or money.
3. Speak up and make eye contact
Shifty eyes and a mumble of a low voice would put even the most trusting man on edge. Speaking up while looking into the other person’s eyes shows courage and respect.
4. Smile and make someone’s day with a well timed compliment
My dad used to tell me to smile even when I didn’t feel like it. I hated it, until I understood the reason. When you genuinely smile at someone, you remove the barrier of unfamiliarity. It makes you a welcoming presence and that, alongside a well timed “Nice shoes”, will make half the world fall in love with you.
As you may or may not already know, Hemingway was a bit of a writer 😏 and a bit of a drinker. He could apparently pack away 10 or more of these lovelies whenever the feeling struck him.
You have to be pretty impressive to not only have the drink but also the double named in your honor (Papa Doble).
Take the time to savor this classic cocktail and let it transport you to the 1930’s when men still dressed up to leave the house, women were still rocking shoulder pads and a diabetic writer was making a name for himself in a little Havana bar called The Floridita.
Believe it or not, what you wear says a lot about who you are. It tells the world how you view yourself and can even show were you think you’re headed in the next 10 years.
Here’s the thing, as a young man growing up I was always taught to be neat and well put together, but not to pay too much attention to the clothes I wore on a daily basis. The result was a chubby kid never caring anything about style, wearing clothes 2 sizes too big to hide my…well everything…and developing habits that carried over into my early twenties.
Fast forward 6 years later, 40 pounds lighter and I’m finally getting a handle on this men’s fashion concept. See what I learned was, you have to care about the clothes you wear. Because either way, they’re going to say something about you.
Name brand or no name brand. Made in Italy or China. It doesn’t matter as long as you’re using style to say what you want to say and feel how you want to feel.
You’re wardrobe is a collection of who you are, who you think you are and who you want to be. We’re going to take out the negatives, insert the positives and create a collection that celebrates who you are and prepares you for who you want to be.

I remember going to church when I was a kid and wearing a pair of black boots with my slacks because I couldn’t find my dress shoes. At the time my mother was furious with me but I couldn’t help to think they looked WAY better than my boring oxfords.
Apparently, that view point is now very much accepted in the fashion community. And with that said, it’s come to our attention that every gentleman should know when to wear, how to wear and to what to wear dress boots with.
Especially because its become obvious this fashion trend that began at the end of the Victorian era is not a trend at all, but a style staple that’s here to stay.
What Exactly are Dress Boots?
Good question. Dress boots are distinctly different from outdoor boots in a few ways. One way is that they are not as readily made to be used outdoors. The best dress boot is actual a dress shoe with an extended upper portion to cover the ankles. They are made in a very similar way to dress shoes.
