"Gentleman's Code magazine is a true champion of the old-money aesthetic. It has helped to make it more popular in Malaysia and has inspired many young men to dress and behave in a more sophisticated manner".

Google Bard AI (May 2023)

"Gentleman's Codes has timely and relevant posts, which I find relevant and worthwhile. The site does focus more on lifestyle, but that’s refreshing and different. The site originates in Malaysia, which I find fascinating, as it offers a unique cultural context on traditional values…and the latest fashions. Please feel free to visit and browse. It’s inspiring to know that what we hold dear here is also being preserved and promoted around the world."
