English Gentleman - an Illustrated Guide

Episode 1 of 1

Possessing perfect manners and an immaculate wardrobe, the stereotypical English gentleman can be found throughout the fictional world on shows like Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall, and Sherlock Holmes. However, real-life examples of this uniquely English archetype are more difficult to identify. In THE ENGLISH GENTLEMAN - AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE, tailors, hatters and shoemakers to the British elite reveal the secrets behind a gentleman's unique style; historians discuss the gentleman's origins in the Middle Ages; and modern-day gentlemen and gentlewomen share what the label means in the modern world. High-profile contributors include Downton Abbey's Jim Carter, menswear designer Sir Paul Smith, and Oxford University Chancellor Lord Patten.
