The Gentlemen’s Standard is ambitiously redefining how gentlemen of color approach life, culture, and style. Founded in 2008, this site arose from a dissatisfaction with how men of color are sometimes portrayed in various media outlets. Moreover, this site was created due to a dissatisfaction with how some gentlemen of color portrayed themselves.
Thus, The Gentlemen’s Standard was born. I wanted to offer a different perspective – a sophisticated one. I wanted to create a website where men could find a sophisticated sanctuary, a respectable respite from the negativity that has pervaded our society. Here, a man can learn what to wear on an interview, glean knowledge from historical greats, and learn in general what constitutes a modern gentleman.
This blog is the antithesis of a modern culture that has forgotten what a real gentleman is. This blog wants to change that. Cultured. Intelligent. Real. Style just got a little smarter. My name is Glen Antoine Palmer. Welcome to The Gentlemen’s Standard.
