Astaire, Fred: Elegant! Elegant! Elegant! Fashion: Don't follow it blindly into every dark alley. Always remember that you are not a model or a mannequin for which the fashion is created. Gender: At the best of times gender is difficult to determine. Ivy: Good outside the house, bad inside. Men's Clothes: Black, midnight blue, dark blue, grey-for suits. Pale blue, pink, white-for shirts. Black, dark blue-for ties. Black for shoes. Only Englishmen can wear brown rough suits and brown heavy-soled shoes and look elegant. Nobody else should try it. Nail Polish: Dark nail polish is vulgar. Nakedness: Easy for the beautiful, difficult for the ugly. Necking: A dirty pastime. Potatoes: I love them. I eat them. Pouting: I hate it, but men fall for it, so go on and pout. Roses: I like them best freshly cut from the garden. The blonde one with the tender, drooping stems small as a rose should smell. Sandwich: A wonderful invention for all people like myself who like to eat on the run. Shoes: Shoes are more important that suits and dresses. Good shoes give elegance to your entire appearance. Buy one pair of good shoes instead of three pairs of bad quality. Sinatra: One of the most gentle of all men I know. Teasing: Teach your teen-age daughters not to tease boys into physical desire. You might save their lives. Unmade Bed: A man would rather come home to an unmade bed and a happy woman than to a neatly made bed and an angry woman. Vodka: It is one of the more healthy drinks in the alcohol field. White Bread: I cringe every time I see a child eating a sandwich made out of American white bread. Give them whole wheat or rye if you love them.
