A stiff upper lip and a hoorah for the queen.

Gentlemen, I feel I must share with you a rather revealing article I came across whilst investigating this phenomena of manliness.


My particular stance on manliness has so far focused on dress and manners. In short it is a quest for etiquette, politeness and hankering for all things that once represented this green and pleasant land. Hence I have made efforts in my speech (both written and spoken) and received a most remarkable upturn in my dealings with the lower orders.

I have recently discovered a magazine in the UK called 'The Chap'. I cannot recommend this publication highly enough. There is also a rather marvellous website belonging to the bi-monthly publication too which is linked here.

One may argue that one this vulgar Zeitgeist in which we men find ourselves is perhaps best rescued by our own efforts, that we treat each scoundrel that crosses our path with wit and panache rather than debasing ourselves with a display of vulgarity.

So raise your brollies, pour yourself a large scotch and join me in a toast to betterment!
