The gentleman at home
As you are probably asking yourself at this stage of your gentlemanly activities “When will I get to unwind and take my tie off?”, and the answer is: at home.
A gentleman’s home is his castle, or in my case, it actually is a castle. However even if your house lacks a moat, turrets and throne it is still your place to unwind from the days activities and take your tie off.
Now the most important part of unwinding is comfortable attire. We may be at home but we gentlemen are still civilized.
Homely attire should combine comfortable pants (suitable pajama pants can suffice as long as they have creases ironed into them) with a warm slipper or soft loafer.
Now you are meant to be relaxed so take the tie off but maintain the collared shirt. Around this a gentleman should typically wear either a dressing gown or smoking jacket.
It’s that simple. Now you can pour yourself a healthy glass of Scotch, light up your pipe and relax, safe in the knowledge that you are still upholding the lofty requirements that make you a gentleman.
So there you have it.
