The Perfect Gentleman

We are developing our brand through our media presence.

We are going to be re-launching the You Tube Channel & Podcast in 2016.

We run Courses, Events & Experiences to impart this information – such as our signature 2 day event ‘Becoming the Perfect Gentleman – Live’. We have over 50 courses, events & experiences that we will be populating the site with over the next few months.

We are a Franchise based business – so if you are looking to join us please investigate that page.

The Modern man is not born - he is made


The Company

The Perfect Gentleman was born in 2012 after a long gestation period in mind of the 1st Gentleman, Zach Falconer-Barfield. Zach has always been influenced by the stylish gentlemen of the past such as David Niven, Cary Grant and Peter Ustinov and has been wearing suits since his late teens. After many years of being asked to educate the menfolk of his female friends and laughing it off, he realised there was a potential for a business in making the world and men better. 

He realised that though the world had changed, certain things had fallen by the wayside. These things such as style, manners, etiquette in life & business, the art of romance and more were important and universal. He knew that companies and many individuals wanted them to be taught again, so the company was formed.

Then he enlisted the help of some talented people, who shared his vision and they are constantly surprised by the way people want to become part of the mission.

The company is formed on the foundations of a solid business, a solid business and developing positive partnerships. The company is always looking to expand and connect with brands and partners which fit it’s core values and message.

The company’s base of operations in London but the company is international with partners and contributors from all around the globe, and the Perfect Gentleman family keeps embracing more and more people.

The Perfect Gentleman is delighted to announce that our first Franchise began in August 2015.  Paul Ernst, a professionally trained Hotelier and Restauranteur, has had a successful career in many of Switzerland’s prestigious hotels, as well as working for an internationally renowned hotel chain in Shanghai, China. He is also a cigar expert who contributes to an online lifestyle magazine in Hong Kong.  It is with great pleasure that we welcome Paul to the team, as he heads up our Switzerland Franchise.
