Lists: Ten things a gentleman must have

29 Dec

Ten things a gentleman must have

1. A sensible leather belt

2. A driver’s licence (whether he uses it or not)

3. A good watch (from a watchmaker, not a clothing company)

4. A penknife

5. A music collection, and a reasonable knowledge of the subject

6. A copy of The Godfather film – 1 & 2 (the third film is optional)

7. A quality leather wallet

8. A tape-measure that doesn’t flop on the floor when extended more than 6′

9. A talent for making a good breakfast

10. A firm handshake

    I’ve got 9 of those.I haven’t got the Godfather films. I do have a collection of knifes, including a WWII German bayonet, which could substitute.

    9/10 ain’t bad, old bean.And kudos for the collection of knives.Other movies could substitute The Godfather – say Where Eagles Dare, The French Connection or similar – but this would have to be put to committee.

    Your comment system is really clunky. Anyway, I’d say that (with the exception of the execrable Godfather films) those are all things that any sane HUMAN should have and deplore your sexism.

    As I’m not a woman, I can’t possibly comment on what a woman should own.It’s true, my lack of a vagina is a curse.

    Also, The Godfather is excellent.Excellent I say!You’re so very wrong. Go and hang your head in shame.Someone on Twitter said I should have added a good suit and a pair of leather brogues – he was right of course. Unlike Jennie. Who’s wrong. ;o)

    Again 9 out of 10 for me with no God Father. I do have a collection of obscure foreign films, many of them with sub titles. Does that count?
