19th Century Etiquette

December 16, 2004

An 1890s guide to Etiquette for English Gentlemen.

A lot of it sounds like a handbook for today’s pimp.

Loads of jewelery? Tasteless throughout the ages. Do restrain yourself from gaudy displays of your family wealth. That’s for the lady of the house to do. Keep it down to a watch, a signet ring, and a pair of decently small studs

Be good with a knife.(okay, that was taken out of context)

And of course, Know Your Audience.
