Men's Society

Guide to Social Protocol, Necessary Skills, Superior Style, and Everything Else That Will Set You Apart From The Pack

Murdoch Books

 

Men’s Society, founded by Hugo and Bella Middleton in 2012 in London, is an accolade-decorated product design brand from the United Kingdom whose focus it is to provide the male gender with geschmaecklerische, at time quirky and finely handmade accessories and grooming products, with their credo being that aestheticism is equally as important as longevity.

Their Guide to Social Protocol is an advisory book shedding light on what some perceive as common sense and most seem to lack these days, i.e. etiquette, manners style and skills to navigate one’s way through this modern world’s era vulgaris.

Recommendations and advice is presented in an approachable, tongue-in-cheek manner that is refreshingly devoid of preachy schoolmaster’s demeanour. The book also does not lack real-world application and is not merely a “how-to” guide to defray one’s existence as a stylized James Bond clone.

The book sheds light on all sorts of grooming, basic knowledge on tipples, manners, courtesy, recommendations on essential books, films and music and other basic skills a man should be able to master.

The fact that it is less a glorification of testosterone and machismo and more a kick in the butt to step one’s game up, makes it a book I can see a lot of ladies subtly gifting their other halves.
