Designer Tom Ford, profiled here recently by our Booth Moore, imparts his five rules for gentlemanly conduct to AnOther magazine editor Jefferson Hack.  Among them: always display manners, never talk or act like a bigot, work at something you're passionate about,  show respect for others by putting your best face forward in public and never wear shorts or flip-flops in the city. I wonder what Ford makes of L.A., where shorts even go to church! [AnOther]

I suppose the time I saw Tom Ford at LAX acting very rude putting his best foot forward meant kicking anyone in his way.

I had an unpleasant encounter with Mr. Ford as well when I was a driver, perhaps he would have been in a better mood if he was wearing shorts and not a wrinkled suit. Also, the ultimate in condescending rudeness is telling grown men how to dress. One thing he should consider on his list is simply being a cool person.
