https://www.youtube.com/embed/nAS79fphQXI Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! Today’s video is all about hip flask and coat flask. We discuss the history the do’s and don’ts, what to pay attention to, the different materials and anything else you want to know about this classic gentlemanly accessory. First let’s start with a history of the hip flask. Before the modern era consuming alcohol was almost a health measure because it could disinfect and help to deal with not so clean water. Some say it all started in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa 60,000 years ago where people would use ostrich egg shells to use as a canteen. Earthenware containers evolved around 2,000 BC and they were eventually replaced with glass and metal flasks. For approximately 500 AD to the Middle Ages, Christian pilgrims would use flasks to bring home oil or other sacred substances. The flask as you know today is…

Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! In today’s video we discuss what to wear as a lawyer, attorney or a solicitor so you look dignified, professional and respectable. As you know, first impressions count. According to a 2000 article of the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, the outward appearance and what you wear is a top factor and how you’re perceived by others. Among others is a firm handshake and a good posture. As an attorney you always want to look understated, professional and dignified. You don’t want to be perceived as flashy, dandy-like or fashionable. After all you want to be respected as a man of the law and not that guy who’s just known for his colorful outfits. At the same time, you don’t want to be like a cartoon character who wears the exact same thing every day.So what should you wear? This is what we discuss…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/4lUjMipf5B4 Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! Today’s video is about five ways to wear a knit tie. A knit tie is something most men are not always familiar with. Most men know regular neckties, 3-fold neckties with a pointed tip, on the other hand, a traditional knit tie is flat at the bottom because that’s the way it’s knitted and it’s also straight on the sides, that means the top of the tie is as wide as the bottom. Sometimes you can also find knit ties in a shape of a traditional tie meaning it has pointed tips and it gets wider as it goes down, however, that’s very difficult to make because you have to manually remove the knots of each line on top to create a traditional three-fold tie shape.If you want to learn more about knit ties, the differences between them, what’s a quality knit tie,…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/MhBUggB06zg Welcome back to our series on how to tie tie knots! Today, I’m going to show you how to tie the Victoria knot. The Victoria knot is to the Four in Hand knot what the Kelvin knot is to the Oriental. In more simple terms, the Victoria knot is a simple four in hand just looped around once more. This tie knot is often favorited by rakish men who really want to add a much bigger knot. Sometimes you’d also see both layers of the loops, just to create a little more relaxed, casual look. Although similar to the Kelvin in the sense that it’s looped around once more, it’s bigger than the Kelvin simply because you have half a loop more of it.Today, I’m wearing a really thick jacquard silk tie by Fort Belvedere which even adds to the size of this knot. The more you loop something…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/g9fT5SPHwGM Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! In today’s video, we discuss the proper tie length as well as the balance of the front blade and the back blade. Whenever we post outfit pictures on our social channels, one of the most discussed things is the proper length of the tie. It’s interesting to see all the different rules that come up, do’s and don’ts and different opinions and therefore, our video is here to bring some clarity for you so you can find the tie in the right length and that flatters you. The first thing to understand is the history of the tie. It was purely decorative and served no functional purpose whatsoever so the only goal of it was to make you look good.Keeping that in mind, it’s hard to argue that one thing is more correct than another. For example, if you look at the 1920’s…
