Bailey's heritage is linked to Old Hollywood glamour. Since Mr. George Bailey himself set up shop in Los Angeles in 1922, he has created hats for Men of Style such as Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant and the Rat Pack.
While times have changed, we believe that the Bailey Man of Style is synonymous with being a gentleman. For this Fall/Winter season, we asked six tastemakers from all walks of life to what it means to embody that gentlemanly quality.

"A Gentleman is a Title Best Given by Others and Justified by Actions as Well as Style." A king doesn't call himself a king. Anyone can self proclaim gentleman ways - but to me, the title of gentleman is best given by others. In both the eyes of the outside observer and the closest of friend, from the street to the sheik, the true gentleman's\r\nauthenticity is never challenged. The Lost Art of the Gentleman focuses on patience, kindness, chivalry, selflessness, honor, truth and style. Being a gentleman is more about good character than good style, but dressing well is a form of good manners, and we know manners are essential to the gentleman. The gentleman has respect for respect and holds himself to the highest standard of being. And, above all, the true gentleman is authentic without an agenda, without gimmicks, and true to his word, as well as his style.
