Stylishly illustrated by Jack Hughes, The Gentleman's Handbook is the essential guide to living the gentleman's lifestyle. There's never been a tougher time to be a gentleman. In addition to the general vulgarity of the modern world, he has to contend with all manner of things: the dramas of social media, the practicalities of being metrosexual and still taken seriously at work, and juggling his finances in these cash strapped times. Or does he? Alfred Tong shares his insider tips with every aspiring gentleman, from what to wear and how to keep your clothes looking in top shape, to which jobs to chase after and how to plan the perfect romantic evening, all without breaking the bank.
