Rules of the Society

The rules of The Society are quite simple and are there to maintain the smooth running and the continued enjoyment of its members. Fundamentally, dress well, socialise well and have a good time. Be disruptive, unpleasant, unreliable or erode the elegant dress code then it is bye-bye.
