Share
You can be a man or you can be a gentleman. Two city pros (and perfect gentlemen) provide tips on how to be the latter. Menswear blogger Steven Onoja (@stevenonoja) and stylist and fashion blogger Denny Balmaceda (@denny623) met up with us at The Land of Barbers in Brooklyn to reveal 10 easy ways to be a polished and stand-up guy.



BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE THE STREETS of New York City with ease.





OWN A LEATHER JACKET and at least one expertly tailored suit.





ALWAYS MAKE EYE CONTACT.





STAY UP TO DATE ON CURRENT EVENTS, not just news on the Kardashians and Kanye.





DON’T BE AFRAID TO ACCESSORIZE. A nice watch and a stylish pair of shoes can go a long way.






Master the art of A GOOD, SOLID HANDSHAKE.





MAKE IT A POINT TO ALWAYS SMELL NICE and not overly “cologned.”





ALWAYS BE PUNCTUAL.





PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS.





DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE VALUE OF A PERSON, including yourself.
