We want you to join the movement.
If you are a gentleman, friends with one, know of one or married to one, you should probably download the covenant, print it out, sign the oath, hang it proudly for the world to see. Set an example and they will follow.
We took it upon ourselves to put this unwritten code in writing. Read the full covenant:
"I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant: I will respect the un-written manners & gestures of the gentlemen in whose steps I walk. I will remember that there is art to proper human behavior as well as the law.and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding will outweigh my day to day stress and mypersonal struggles. I will not be ashamed to say "i’m sorry" & “i was wrong” nor will I fail to call out my fellow human beings, when their manners are not in line with those of true gents & dames. I will not use my elbows (physically & metaphorically) to push or manipulate my way into fame, fortune or power. I will not be aggressive, i will not be mediocre.
i am a gentleman
and i will take the world back with kindness, respect, wisdom and elegance.
i will actively affect reality until these principles are the basic foundations for one’s success. at the end of the day, it’s me against the mirror, against this oath. against what i think of myself. it’s how i carry myself."
