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.

I was raised to be a sophisticated, intelligent man of refined tastes... but all I want to be is a bogan. There's something incredibly appealing about their philosophy and way of life. I had many goals but now my only aspiration is to be lazy and get high.

If the opposite of a gentleman is a bogan, then what is it to be a bogan? We all know what a gentleman is, but what is a bogan?

I want to know what you think.

A Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a miniature Dachshund. Though they're too small for my taste, the Corgi was rescued from an abusive home, and the Dachshund has been by my side for 11 years.

Not a painting, but an ink study by Peter Paul Rubens. Just that every single stroke is thought out and in the perfect position, it's just gorgeous. Everything that I strive to be when I draw.

I was curious since I didn't recognize the painting, but it is definitely academic/romanticist in style. There are unfortunately no major active artists that match the surname 'Brun' in the 1860s either.
I'd suggest looking into Lefebvre, Bougereau, Delaroche, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Bonnat etc. etc.

If you are in a crowded environment, you can go to their group and tell them that your friend and you have a bet whether or not they are from country X.
If you are socially competent, you can then make some funny small talk that'll get you into a conversation.
Otherwise, you can depend on them to tell you to stay and chat a while if they are interested in speaking to you.
If neither options work, try improving your appearance and/or social skills; or simply try again.




How to don a suit. Sophisticated Gentleman 15/02/24(Tue)02:58 No. 3008 [Reply]

A quick guide to cover the basics should you be unsure and in need of guidance.

Step 1 - Get your birthday suit ready.

Exactly what it implies, shit, shower, shave, teeth, hair, nails, whatever personal grooming you need to do you get it done before you put on the suit. Nobody wants to see moisturiser, toothpaste and dandruff on your clothes so put them on, let them set and wash any grease off your hands before you start touching cloth.

Step 2 - Socks and underwear.

Order doesn't matter but the key thing here is to put your socks on before you put your trousers and tie on.

Step 3 - Shirt

Put your shirt on, button it up two from the top. Leave the tie for now.

Step 4 - Trousers

File 135601287854.jpg - (32.22KB , 300x300 , JAGERMEISTER.jpg )

Good afternoon gents. I am starting into drinking alcohol other than beer and should like to inquire as to what cocktails are acceptable for any self-respecting male to drink?

I believe Manhattans, Martinis, and Sidecars are acceptable, but have no knowledge as to anything else as I am an utter novice in these matters.

Also, I recently purchased 1 and 3/4ths liter of Jagermeister; aside from the so-called Jagerbombs and Jagerade, are there any classier cocktails that could be made, or should I just drink Jager by the shots?

My novice impressions of Jagermeister are that it is rather strong and bitter tasting, but it creates a pleasant burning sensation in the throat and stomach after consumption. It also aids in digestion as an herbal liquor. I find tequila and vodka to be extremely nasty, though the lemon helps the tequila go down better. I cannot compare with other liquors such as whiskey and Gin for I have not tried those before. Would you gentlemen be so kind as to introduce me to new liquors, with reference to aspects such as strength and taste?

Jagermeister is cool as a digestif after a meal and not much else, on the rare occasion I drink it - I'd shot it.

Tequila is not all bad, go for a respectable brand and if you don't like the bite from the blue agave in a blanco tequila, go for an anejo (aged) - aging in wood softens the bite of the alcohol and makes it more complex. I drink fine anejo tequilas like I do a scotch: in a rocks glass - neat.



Onto a list of gentlemanly cocktails:

Daquiri (real one, not frozen)
Sazerac
Sidecar
Martini
Manhatten
Tom Collins

Never tired any mixed drinks with the Jager, personally, I like it as-is. (I'm a fan of earthy and medicinal flavors, but that's just me) quality makes a HUGE difference in Tequila. Try a reposado or above- the aging mellows it out. if it's clear, it's probably nasty. If it's cheap and amber, it's probably caramel colouring.
If you like sweet and medicinal, try the green chartreuse/ chartreuse vert.
I don't know about respectability, but a gin and tonic is fantastic on a hot day, and I isn't too hard hitting in the alcohol department.

Every gentleman needs his drink to settle down after a hard day of work. In my case I like a scottish whisky, preferably single malt and aged a minimum of 10 years to exhibit the right flavors.

What is your spirit of choice /class/?

Hendricks gin is pretty nice. Can's say I know that much about whisky, but The Macallan 18 yr is a pretty rad and casual? If the weather's hot, then a G&T is the way to go for me. a mint leaf isn't entirely out of place in one

Am wondering about Low-end nicotine cigarettes. None of this e-cig bullshit; I like the light and softness of a real cigarette, but I'm looking to cut down on the nicotine and tar content. --- anyone help me out?

I like Camel Blue. Marlboro Gold (also known as Marlboro Light in some countries) is good too and low in nicotine.
