Book cover: The unrelenting gentleman

Challenge #89 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
The author requires a gentlemanly image for a book cover. The image must not be of a person, but of something that leads potential buyers to think of a gentleman when they see the cover. Some of the potential images discussed included a pocket-watch on a nightstand, a close-up of a pin on a silk tie, a pair of oxford brogues on a polished wood floor, a pipe resting in a heavy ashtray, and an elaborate silver cane handle. The image must be of a refined subject and the subject must be distinctly masculine.
