Gentlemen's Salon: Intro

Salon - "A periodic gathering of people of social or intellectual distinction."
"A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine taste and increase their knowledge of the participants through conversation."

I have decided to add something extra for the gentlemen. It has plenty to do with style and less about wearable fashion. It's more about the behavior of a gentleman; it's just like how I am with styling - a balance between humility and glamour. The length of each post under this category may differ. Regardless, each entry will be a bit of knowledge that is quite significant towards everyday life. Let's kick things off with today's post:

  • A gentleman is still a human being, he will make mistakes. What makes him a true gentleman is that he will own up to those mistakes; he will begin the process to rectify those mistakes and apologize if necessary. The ego must be set aside in order to recognize the fault at hand. One cannot set things accordingly if his judgement is clouded by his own ambitions. 

(Fact: The salon was an Italian invention of the 16th century which flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. read more: Salon. Again, to no surprise, I love all that is Italian.)
