“A gentleman uses his butter knife,” as one old adage goes, “even when he’s dining alone”, and this rallying call to inconspicuously elegant living certainly applies to all things sartorial: truly stylish men show as much discernment when it comes to their lesser-seen garments as they do their shirts, jackets and trousers.
