Before there was the hit television show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, there were John Bridges and Bryan Curtis. Their Gentlemen's Guides have been helping men order wine, set tables, write thank-you notes and generally act as civilized as they want to be. NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates talks with the duo about modern manners.
