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.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/11/12(Wed)21:45 No. 2957

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).

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/11/04(Tue)03:10 No. 2950

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.

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.

Merc makes an okay suit,

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.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/10/13(Mon)03:06 No. 2928

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).

Gentlemen, hello.

Season is switching over to the colder side and I think many of us chronic masturbators and computer addicts need to hibernate maybe a little more than just indoors.

I'll be your fairy godfather today and bless you with these words: if you just lift away your habit of reaching down into your pants, and let your actual non-horniness take over your life for however long is needed to recover, then you will find yourself reliving the old days of the youth hornies you used to get when something switches back on in your head out of seemingly nowhere, and seemingly stronger than ever.

Pursue other interests that you have. I know beyond your addictions there exists the potential to enjoy other things as well. Give them a try, and while you find yourself reading a physics textbook or something, you will spring up from your concentration and realize the purity of your newfound interest in sexual material that passes through your mind that is all too familiar with your youth arousals: nearly anything will do!

Think of it as one of your RPG game's slow rate of health recovery dependent on time. If you masturbate, your interest goes back down to 0. Continue to do this regularly and that "health" bar will always stay towards the end, never having a chance to fully recover, and as you continue to do it over and over again while it's at the end, it gets slower and slower to return to its full power. Eventually you become inured to this low-health environment and you become depressed, sad, and missing the old days of purity.

Take it or leave it, I'm just your fairy godfather passing by, leaving his mark on a shitstain of a forum that is 7chan. Toodles!

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/09/29(Mon)02:24 No. 2910

I'm suffering from depression and anxiety and I find it hard to motivate myself to get back into my hobbies. I want to, desperately, but the motivation just isn't there anymore. Masturbation and other self-gratifying addictions seem to take over against my will, and then I feel guilty afterwards for letting it happen again.

How can I break this cycle? I hate being stuck like this.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/09/29(Mon)02:43 No. 2911

Your addiction is still talking. If you read what OP said, you'll know to try something new, even if it doesn't seem appealing at first. This is the only way to break your cycle. Open up a game of chess online or something. If you don't know the rules, read them. Start over. Look at other things in life.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/10/25(Sat)05:23 No. 2939

Exercise, a healthy diet, and constant regular sleep in the darkness will help dramatically.

But you most likely need to get some talk therapy with a professional.

I just smoked tea in my pipe.

I now endorse it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/06/21(Sat)22:25 No. 2815

Indeed. Smoking in public is no longer a gentlemanly behavior. Though one may feel free to partake in the privacy of one's own domain. Perhaps in one's private gardens, where the experience may be tempered and enhanced by the fresh air and beauty of the surroundings.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/10/08(Wed)18:58 No. 2920

I say. When you mentioned smoking not to be considered gentlemanly behaviour these days, I am sure you meant smoking what the working class calls "cigarettes" - I trust you are familiar with the concept. And while I agree on this point - the smell they produce is very much disturbing - I would say that a fine cigar or indeed a pipe, which predominantly emit an enjoyable aroma, is very much worthy to be perused by a gentleman even by today's standarts.

If a gentleman spends his time on a social gathering, it is obviously preferable to abide the host's wishes, but in the general public (mind you, not indoors) I feel that no one should wrinkle his or her forehead over a gentleman endorsing in smoking a pipe.

Now, to lead the discussion back to the topic at hand, has anyone else than the gentleman here >>702 had this or a similar experience? It is not that I do not trust this man, but I would rather have some second opinions on the matter before trying it myself - I would find it most disturbing if this should cause damage to my pipe, or even - may the gods forbid this - myself.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/10/09(Thu)23:06 No. 2923

I attempted it quite a while ago with some Earl Grey. The loose leaf kind, not the reconstituted vomit in little bags.

It was like trying to smoke wood shavings, and tasted like a cavendish tobacco if you were to leave it exposed to the elements all summer long. In all, it wasn't an experience I'd enjoy repeating. At least it didn't ruin my pipe, but I wasted a good serving of tea with that smoke.

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.

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

Girls, do you women assume you are asking them out when you ask them to hang out or to get coffee? (self.AskWomen)submitted just now by anne1osognosiaOr is just like it could be either and is the reasoning like, 'oh i'd be open to both, so i'd say yes', but if they don't want to date you then 'i'd better avoid it in case its a date' or something else? also, what percentage of guys would you say you would accept and ask out from?

Aren&!pfiVGYw7io 14/08/30(Sat)02:14 No. 2859

A better question is "would the paparazzi see it as a date if they saw to co-stars at a coffee shop together?"

Not only does the young lady have to worry about whether the person offering the invitation will see it as a date, they have to wonder who else will see them at the local coffee shop. If you have concerns about it being a date, invite friends who can back up whatever the real story is. I, however, do not drink coffee, because the finer things in life keep me awake far better than caffeine.

As I am fairly young individual, who is also very introverted person, I can not say that I have any formal authority when it comes to any matter not related to myself.
