Modern Day Gent
This week we found ourselves asking a question that we feel is prevalent to our current place in history. In the 21st century when conversations about values, ethics, & influence continually mark the headlines, we wonder what does it mean to be the modern day gentleman?
The meaning of a gentleman has changed over the course of time. Historically, the title of being a gentleman was not originally based on the actions of a man, rather it was a given birthright based on status quo. Fast forward to the 21st century, and we now recognize the term as an anchor representing character traits of values, morality, and honor. Yet we still find ourselves asking even deeper questions of who are these gentleman of our society? How do we know when we see one for any other guy? Is he even a he, maybe a gentleman is a she? What do they look like? What is the reputation these modern day gents carry?
So for us, as we begin to sculpt the idea of a modern day gent, we believe The Gent is comprised of a variety of characteristics. The Gent is courageous as they stick their neck out for what they believe in. The Gent is honest, for they tell the truth, even if it’s not the easiest thing to do. The Gent is self-assured; they know what they desire in life, and what suits them best. The Gent is adventurous as they live for the unforgettable experiences, and strive to immerse themselves in things they might not fully understand but recognize there is always opportunity to grow. And most importantly, the modern day Gents are fashioning their own story, an editor of their own life, unapologetically pursuing that which brings them immense gratitude, and relentlessly cutting out the insignificant and unworthy experiences that only serve as distractions.
And thus we conclude, the definition of The Gent is in fact not a "man" thing but rather a humanity thing. For these markers are qualities we see embodied in ALL our K.E.P. Rebels (regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, or status) and are qualities we feel our country is in desperate need of at this time. In a day in age in which there is a need for individuals of such caliber to unite we are proud to provide an experience that assists in the fashioning of today's modern day Gents. A place that takes pride in extracting the very best within each individual and ultimately taking part in a practice of living that is worthy of generations to come.
