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.

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've always enjoyed a good scotch or bourbon. Nothing beats a martini on a summer evening though. Anyone tried Lillet in place of vermouth? Its incredible. Also fond of Trappist style ale.

Has anyone tried the Yamazaki? Apparently the Japanese make a fine whisky.




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

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?

Straight Cognac, alongside a cup of black coffee, is the perfect end to any fine meal.

Savouring the bouquet of a fine Cognac while you gently heat it to drinking temperature (cold Cognac, as whisk(e)y, is not nice), by holding the glass in the palm of your hand, is a pleasure in itself. Then, the gentle impact of the first sip, followed by the richness of the full taste. Finally the lingering warmth of the aftertastes as you finish imbibing the first mouthfull.

I'm a big fan of Bache-Gabriel's, especially the XO. For first timers I might suggest Deluze XO, as it's extremely smooth - though some might say it's too smooth. Some may even consider it a bit of a ladies Cognac, since it's so easy to drink, but don't let that detract you from trying it.

As for mixed drinks I'd say Irish Coffee is a safe bet, and indeed any gentleman should know how to prepare it, as it requires a certain amount of skill to do well. (and,please , use plain double cream, not whipped cream or, heaven forbid, anything from a pressurized can.)

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

I know it's a bit morbid and I'm not even an art critic or something, but this one speaks volumes to me, I know it's simplistic, I know it's "edgy" and all that

although I hope that one day this will change but for now it feels like this is to be my favourite

the truth is a few days ago I had a moment like OP's picture when I read this

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 love rolling tobaccy but it's high in nicotine in my experience

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

It's not the nicotine in cigarettes you should be worried about.

A gentleman's beliefs are just that. He might have a short discourse about the manner in which he sees things, but is reserved in his manner such that his audience does not feel imposed upon.

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 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)

My good fellow, you should note the difference between "You" and "U". One is a word and has meaning, the other is a letter and merely indicates a sound.

While we are on the subject of meaning, let us also examine the word "jewelry" and note that if an item bears a jewel upon it, it may be identified as a piece of jewelry. A gentleman's accessories may bear one or more jewels tastefully. Though I will grant you that any item that can be described with the word "encrusted" is far too gaudy and conspicuously wealthy to be a proper choice for a respectable gentleman.

I find that donning religious necklaces can be found very gentlemanly by our more pious peers.

Agreed, with caveats. First, it should ideally be no bigger than a penny (or other similarly sized coin, depending on your currency of choice), with a chain or cord no thicker than needed for a pendant this size. Any larger than this and you risk turning yourself into a billboard, at which point you might as well be wearing a Nike "Swoosh" or other meaningless logo.

Secondly, it should be of one material only, and while it may be of precious metal or shaped precious stone, applied gems are right out.

These two may be overlooked to a certain degree, should the item have sentimental significance. But in all circumstances, a religious pendant should be kept under the clothing in all except the most casual of circumstances.
