Tom Ford: 'A Man Should Never Wear Shorts In The City'

Posted: Updated:

Designer Tom Ford covers the spring/summer issue of AnOther Man magazine, and -- instead of plugging his much-talked-about womenswear line (although we're sure that's in there -- he used the opportunity to impart several lessons on how to be a modern gentleman.

Take a look at a handful of Ford pointers. Do you agree about wearing shorts in the city?

Quick Poll

For the rest, head over to AnOther.

  • A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.
  • Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they're walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.
  • A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.
