Being Bereolaesque

Red August believes that being fabulous starts inside then out. With that said, we are featuring Enitan Bereola, age 26, who took a look on the inside of this society and decided there was a need for chivalry, etiquette, and manners to take its place again. (Halluejah!) In that, Bereola tells about his soon-to-be released book, BEREOLAESQUE: The Gentleman & Etiquette Book for the Urban Sophisticate - A look into making manners sexy and what it takes to become a present-day gentleman.

…Because pants hang below the waistline, because society can't locate a contemporary gentleman, and because we leave it up to acronyms like TMZ & MTV to define manhood....because there is a YouTube video of a 4-year old using the 'F' word effortlessly, because my nephew can't define chivalry, and because a promising college student had his future stolen from him by the barrel of a gun...these are the reasons why I wrote Bereolaesque.
....It is a promise to us, a promise to our children and a promise to America that we can do better, that we can live better and that we are better.

- Enitan Bereola

Bereola began his journey in 2006 when he discovered his natural knack to attract crowds of users on his Myspace [] and Facebook pages. He announced a sexy and new type of book that he planned to release and watched the messages pour in and his friend’s list increase by the thousands.

The author admits he did not mind female attention but wanted to focus his message: Chivalry, etiquette, and manners are back…this time it’s SEXY! With the recent election outcome, society is telling us out with the old and in with the new. Contemporary style, class, and sophistication are steadily becoming the desires of many Americans.

Bereola, who is renowned by gentlemen current and past alike, has the experience to back it up. The author has spent a lengthy majority of his lifetime traveling and researching etiquette and applying it in society. Recently, Bereola was named "Black Man to Watch" by Clutch Magazine.

*BEREOLAESQUE* [Be-re-o-la-esque] -adjective: Highly appealing & pleasing to the human senses or mind; captivating; providing pleasure or delight, esp. in appearance or manner; charming; alluring; attractive.

This contemporary guide is a one-stop-shop for all men and provides a positive alternative for urban living. The author, Bereola, boasts that “he’s not simply selling literature, he’s selling a lifestyle”.
