Hello gentlemen!
You have been awarded your own private club from which you may scorn the local riffraff. If you continue posting at least 25 posts per day for the next two weeks, this will be a permanent board.
If you notice any problems (file sizes, file types) post in this thread. I'm not sure if we want to make this General or SFW, so you can discuss that, too.
Keep it work safe and stay classy.

Good evening, gentlemen.

I come to you today curious as to whether or not any of you fellows are proficient in a second (or third!) language.

I myself have studied Russian on and off for the past two years and may plan on learning conversational French as well.

It depends on how much of your everyday time you can spend on studying, as it is the best to study on a daily basis.
Also, it depends on whether you already know how to read Cyrillic script (which is relatively easy to learn, at least that was my experience), and on your native language.
If, in your native language, a letter is pronounced exactly the same every time, no matter where it is in the sentence (for example, Serbo-croatian, Japanese, German), then it might be somewhat easier to learn Russian.
On the other hand, if your native language's letter pronunciation differs from word to word (see, for example, English, French and Vietnamese), then it might be a bit harder as you will have to acclimate to the fact that the letter is the same every time you pronounce it.

For me, personally, that is the issue, as in my native language (Serbo-croatian), letters are always pronounced equally, and I am now learning Cantonese using materials on English. The explanations when it comes to pronunciations are confusing, as I am used to pronouncing the letters differently than, for example, English speakers.

Although, I am not OP, because who knows where he/she/they is (as this thread was started more than two years ago).

Gentlemen, truth be told, and without boasting, I am fluent the language of pussy fucking.

I'm a Native Portuguese speaker (From Brazil), and it mean that i understand a bit of Spanish.

I've learning French for a few months, especially the grammar, but, my vocabulary is a quite poor. And i only use my English for read, and rarely for expression.

Gentlemen, in which city in the world would you live, if you were able to live there?

In my case, I would say Hong Kong. It's vibrant culture, people and it's design and architecture are wonderful.

Well, it is quite ungrateful to compare rural China with city part of Hong Kong, although, up to some degree, you could compare rural China with villages in New Territories.

I quite enjoyed living in Tokyo and Osaka during my time abroad. Alas, which I prefer is a hard choice.

Gents, what do you call a night?
No sex or illicit activities.

For me, it's:
-Bohren & Der Club of Gore (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuKVDJXUQnc)
-Montecristo Cigar
-Macallan Scotch with ice
-Shadowy, dark building silhouettes on the city skyline, that contrast with the mellow light of the streets

I love physical activity, I love playing games and running around.

This being said, I am not very fit although I would like to be.

I'm interested in some sports but don't know how to get into them. The two main ones are Rugby and Boxing (do not want to compete though).

How should I get into these? Should I just look for amateur leagues/boxing classes?

Thanks for your time!

Hello /class/ I was looking at getting a suit. My requirements.
1.This suit can be worn for business and social events.
2.I'd like to to be under 400 dollars.
3.It also needs to work with a bowtie or tie depending on the occasion.
4.It needs to be decently easy to clean. I dont want to always take it to the dry cleaners.
5.I'd like a minimum of 3 buttons

Some things I have in mind. I was looking at a white-ish beige color or grey that could work with black. I dont know of any good brands so if you could recommend one that would be awesome. And general ideas are accepted.

I had a fine summer suit tailored for ~$200 in Thailand. 3-piece, silk (so, dry cleaning only unfortunately), customized detail, stash pockets. One year old, worn maybe a dozen times & quite worth it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/09/06(Sat)19:38 No. 2876


I purchased a three-button suit made from high quality, astoundingly comfortable tropical wool for 50 dollars second-hand, then brought it to a tailor to have it altered to fit. The total cost was less than 100 dollars.

Not everything in second-hand stores are hideously dated. Sometimes there are timeless classics waiting to be found.

My brother did this too, but in Singapore, an excellent idea if one happens to be there.

One observation I have regarding styles and cuts of dress clothing: while people of the internet and media seem to nitpick over things such as lapel-widths, number of buttons, natural shoulders versus Roman shoulders, pleats, etcetera, I have never met any person in reality who complained, not a single one. The fit though is very important.

If you like mod cut.

My best finds were from throft stores in and around san Francisco. Pay $5 for a jacket, $60 for tailoring, and you're set. Pic related.

I did have a three-paragraph post detailing it in depth, but the board decided to be rude and delete it during posting.

Perhaps later.

If I recall he painted a lot of cats. After the recent discovery of the link between human Toxoplasmosis infections and Schizophrenia I wonder if they are related.

I watched "The Good Shepherd" tonight. Fantastic piece of fiction, that was. Absolutely brilliant espionage film directed by DeNiro. I might even go as far as to claim that it is the finest espionage film ever made. I suggest you utilize your eyes to view this piece in its full glory. It's truly spectacularly good.

I believe that modern filmographic devices displaying images at rapid speeds to create the illusion of movement would be a fine topic of discussion for fine gentlemen such as ourselves, would you not agree? Let us, perhaps, begin to list some of our most favored sophisticated films.

Good day gentlemen. On this day I wish to ask your preferred literature. While I love to indulge in a great book, I favor reading classic Gothic literature. I love books similar to Jane Eyre, and The Castle of Otranto.
