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 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.

By the way i have a fine taste for indie movies. Wristcutters is the very finest of cinema.

I will see that "the good sheperd" tonight.

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.

Vincent Van Go's Starry Night, because I like the swirls in the sky.

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.

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.

I travel frequently.
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.

What is a gentleman's religion/belief?
Does a gentleman share such things?
What is the key element that defines a gentleman, mentally/emotionally?

Too true. I'd say that organized religion is harmful, but private spirituality is, if anything, quite the opposite.

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.

Getting an international transfer as part of a job is the easiest way. Winging it and moving with the intent of starting anew is tantamount to suicide.

There's plenty of schemes for moving abroad. Most people elect to go over backpacking, find a job and get a work visa while they're there so they can stay as long as possible. You can also jump on one of numerous government schemes including the good ol' exchange program (basically the US will send 5000 workers per year to X and in return receive 5000 workers from X as part of a 'cultural exchange' program, you can normally stay 5 years but you have to organise everything yourself, they only supply the visas).

If you're American you can live up to 90 days in most EU countries. If you want to stay there permanently than yeah its difficult like in every country in the would.
If you think you'd like to live in one place go there for the 90 day and find a job in a hostel, that way you get to stay for free there and get the feel of the city without spending a lot of money renting. I've done it several times, it's pretty cool.

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!

Start by lifting weights. Heavy weights.

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.

Yeah if you want a suit to look good then you definitely need to have it tailored. It doesn't have to be expensive. A cheap-ish tailored suit will probably look better on you than a 3000 bucks Armani suit straight out of the outlet (unless you have it tailored, of course).
