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.

I am Portuguese. I can communicate in Spanish and I studied Latin.
I also studied French and can communicate at a very basic level.
I studied German and I keep learning it, because I'm working there and having classes.
I have a lot of foreign friends, so I can say hello and stuff like that, in many languages. Not to mention, that I am cultured and open-minded about other views.
Needless to say, I can speak English...
Oh, and I've also lived in Romania, without knowing jack sh!t of Romanian, but I can tell you that you really don't need it that much...
I'm pretty sure I forgot to mention stuff, but, anyway, Good luck /class/!

I recently picked up a book on teaching oneself Japanese from my local used book seller, and while quite novice have been pleasantly surprised to find that so far it is quite a reasonable language for an adult student.

Greetings, gentlemen

I come to you today to inquire about jewelry. Besides a watch (mechanical, of course), wedding ring, and perhaps a locket, what are other gentlemanly items of jewelry, and what are gawdy articles for the riffraff? (like cuban necklaces, earrings, or grills)

A respectable gentleman may also wear a ring denoting academic or fraternal affiliation.

Gentlemen.

U should note the difference between jewelry and accessoires. That said, I'm convinced that there are no unisex pieces of jewelry besides wedding rings. Therefore necklaces, earrings and other ornamental jewelry is for her. Cuff-links, (pocket) watches, tie-holders and other functional jewelry are concidered accessoires, which is fine for him.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/12/16(Tue)23:00 No. 2977

A pocket watch is a splendid item of jewelry for a man.

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/?

I don't really drink, but when I do I like a nice chilled vodka. The flavor and that sting is just like melted sugar to me. Course, I enjoy a nice Absinthe every now and then, classic French or Bohemian prepared.

Hello gentelmen.

I am very glad 4chan exists so the nicer stuff can be kept elsewere and safe from the majority.

My first post is dedicated to a very simple question that I cannot solve:

I'd like to dress well but I'm not sure of the limit between class and queerness.

I'm planning on buying some elegant boots since I dont like shoes, and fitted shirts. I guess I also need some kind of coat, and I'll be aiming for expensive functionallity like a discrete Helly Hansen ore something similar.

When does the limit start? What are some functional brands that are elegant? What are some boots that are functional,slim, discrete and can be worn with a suit?
What is a nice lighter that is not a zippo?

Thanks in advance.

Look for:
- A nice pair of leather, lace-up, ankle boots.
- A wool blend overcoat. I prefer a herringbone pattern.
- A Dunhill lighter of any variety.

Branding does not matter unless you are on a red carpet. Cost is almost always equal to quality when you stick with the paradigm.

Hello gentlemen (and ladies),

I propose a thread about relationships, not how to attract the opposite sex, but how to show a potential partner you find them attractive/intelligent/charming but aren't interested in any sort of relationship with them (for one reason or another).

Not that I'm currently beating off the women with a stick mind you, but occasionally I find that a woman can mistake my flirty nature and interest in them for something more than occasional banter, and I have not found a way to respectfully explain that I'm currently not interested in a relationship.

However, I feel it's wrong to simply ignore them and not carry on a conversation that can be enjoyed between a sexually attracted people, even if it leads nothing.

What methods do you propose /class/?

Sorry to double post, but those pick up artist people ''RSD'' were in my city for a free tour on Thursday. What I took away from it was when I want to take a girl to my place I'll say: " wanna go to my favourite place in Melbourne" but I won't tell them it's just my apartment. And, when I'm conversing, to think abut if what I'm saying meets the FRED criteiria: focus, relevance, emotion and decisions. I also heard a clever line for when I'm going out to lunch by myself and I see someone else eating alone I can say: I'm looking for love and icecream. Do you want to come with me?

Aren&!JYOcPX8RI2 14/08/30(Sat)02:09 No. 2857

The proposal, as I see it, is to expand society's definition of "single but not looking" to allow a person to still engage in the behaviors of looking. I believe that the key lies in the original post, e.g. "my flirty nature." It is also possible that "relationship" has not been sufficiently defined, either in the OP or in our society.

It is sometimes advisable to begin with a joke. I recently saw on a sit come a man who would wine and dine a female friend, complete with joking and flirting, yet had no interest in a relationship with her. Obviously the fanbase of the show was divided on the subject of their relationship, but the female friend was in a relationship and the man was accused of being a "fluffer." I will not explain the term, but it seemed that while a male friend provided the courtship elements of flirting, the boyfriend provided the courtship elements of having sex and being officially in a relationship with the girlfriend. This was deemed inappropriate, the boyfriend failing to perform all this duties and the female friend being in a pseudo-relationship with another man, and I am not advocating a new form of relationship.

However, unless we were to invent a new form of "flirting only" relationship, we must work with ideas about relationship invented long before our time. In a time before our time, a lady seen flirting with a gentleman might be accused of harlotry if she were not in some sort of relationship with that gentleman that had marriage as its end goal. Marriage was expected to be a life-long partnership, so a minimum period of courtship was expected so that no one would rush into anything they might regret later. Now it could be that you, by openly flirting with a young lady, were putting her in a difficult position where she had to pressure you to define your relationship for an old-fashioned relative. However, you also may be suffering from the loss of this "minimum courtship period" and its accompanying gestures. During this courtship period, a man was required to prove his interest with flowers, gifts, and other gestures to back up his flirting. Without these gestures, or rather without their requirement, it becomes difficult to distinguish casual flirting from more ardent pursuit.

The best option for OP might be to always be in a small group of people and flirt with all members of the opposite sex equally. This would show that they have a "flirty nature" because he does not single out a "true love" and lavish her with all his attention. Another option might be to keep his flirtations extremely shallow, leaving praise for the more intimate details to the one who "really sees her," to him who is actually seeking a relationship with her. This may not actually solve the problem, which is always a concern when applying an old system to a new problem.

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.

I appreciate all of your gracious efforts, but I feel I may have the most to offer here.

Truffaut's "The 400 Blows" is a fine starting point for exploring French New Wave cinema (besides of course Breathless, which is a given.)

Stan Brakhage is the maker of a number of fine avant garde shorts, but his definitive piece would have to be his feature length film "Dog Star Man," a film in four parts that expresses a number of ambitious ideas using film that is scratched, drawn on, and manipulated in a number of interesting ways. The film has no sound.

"The Passion of Joan of Arc" is a significant and masterful silent film by Carl Theoder Dreyer.

"Landscape Suicide" is an early film by avant garde filmmaker James Benning that is a great introduction and thesis to his general thematics and a decent hindsight look into American New Cinema.

Other notable and reccomended movies would be Satantango, Berlin Alexanderplatz, Close-Up, and Black Orpheus.

What is the best sound-blocking (preferably lightweight) device to go over the ear? I know absolute silence is impossible, but I want to get as close as possible.

If anyone has the same desire as me to live in silence, please tell me what you have found. Thank you.

For earplugs putty silicone ear plugs. No specific brand.
I've tried noise cancelling earmuffs but not really my thing. Too bulky.

I don't go anywhere without my ear plugs. I use them to sleep, to walk through the streets, and also when there's to much women around. I don't take the bus without them, and I also were them when I have a test or a chess tournament and am in need of full concentration. I use this silicone german ear plugs that are transparent and discrete, and you can adjust them depending on how much do you want to hear. The pack is blue and it simply says "earplugs", pretty much like the one on the picture. I strongly recomend them, I would be dead or crazy by now without them.
On the downside, you get used to live in peace and silence so much that you finally can barely leave your house without your ear plugs. They are also pretty awful when you're sleeping with a lover, because you won't hear if she wispers nice things to your ear or something. But that's the price you pay if you don't want to be deaf or insane by the time you hit 60 if you're living in the sprawl.

Well my dear gentlemen, the finest of individual competitions is having place as we speak. I'm of course talking about the world chess championship, which is currently on day 5 and seeing no advantage from any of the contenders, despite the general believe that this was going to be an easy win from the very strong current champion, Magnus Carlsen.
So I'll use this thread to load the games for you to watch and discuss, please enjoy this amazing artists doing what they do best.
