The Gentleman's Guide to Funeral Etiquette

Many individuals feel unsure about what should be worn to or said at a funeral service. If this sounds like you, then watch this video for tips on demonstrating dignity and respect when attending a funeral ceremony.

After being notified of the death, reach out to the family to offer your condolences using a handwritten letter. During the service, it's important to show respect, and you can do this by listening, participating, and keeping your cell phone turned off. Also, do not wear jeans, a golf shirt, shorts, or similar options. Instead, opt for a black, charcoal, or navy suit with a white double cuff shirt, a simple tie, and black dress shoes.
