Forgetful Gentleman, established in 1998, was created by two self-confessed ‘forgetful gentlemen’ to help out blokes just like themselves.
The idea is that although being a gentleman is important, and has so many benefits, the modern world makes it increasingly more difficult to be one (cue: forgetfulness).
Each piece that they create has been fashioned with only the finest materials (because a gentleman knows the value of quality) in beautiful, masculine designs. Yet there is a subtle element of tongue-in-cheek which gives each piece an endearing quality.
This Forgetful Gentleman Letterpress Correspondence System will encourage a budding gentleman to say all the important things (and hand written too - swoon
!). The cards and envelopes are crafted in the same 15th Century Italian Paper Mill which made Napoleon Bonaparte’s wedding invitations, and the set is presented in a distinguished velvet-lined wooden cigar box.
Forgetfulness is no longer an excuse - thanks to Forgetful Gentleman.
