    A Gntlman Travels... In Style.

    Read time: 3 mins Last week we took you inside one of Manchester's most opulent hotels, Hotel Gotham. So this week, we decided we'd carry on the luxury theme. So, naturally, we thought we'd explore how a gent would get to and from his luxe hotel (in style of course). And how else than in none other than a much coveted Rolls-Royce? Now, time for a bit of a history lesson... Since the meeting of engineer Henry Royce and car dealership owner Charles Rolls – in our very own Midland Hotel in Manchester may we add! – there has been...

When you think about it, aside from underwear, they're pretty much an everyday essential. Here at We Are Gntlmen HQ, we're rather fond of the humble sock.

    In Focus: Hamilton

    Read Time: 3 mins I know, I know. We're in August and the sun is (mostly) shining. So you may be wondering “why are you talking about black shirts?!”. Firstly, as much as we hate to admit it, Autumn will be here before you know it. Secondly, just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't wear a black shirt! Oh, and we have the perfect one in mind. Hamilton. Hamilton is a slim fitting black dress shirt crafted from the finest cotton (as always). To allow for a snug but comfortable fit, we combined 97% cotton and 3% elastane; giving...

    It's Time To Switch Off

    We all know that one self proclaimed “workaholic”. Maybe it's you, your friend or eager beaver Allen who sits at the desk behind. In fact, just today, one of the We Are Gntlmen team received an email telling him “you need to enjoy some down time.” This got us thinking, for us workaholics out there, how do we actually switch off?
