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.

*Brew your own beer.
*Seek teens who are shitless drunk and ask if they know anyobe with moonshine.
*Stay in your cloth, if they break leave the hole open or stich it together with hands and a needle+string.
*Live in the woods/-with low rent.

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?

Personally speaking I am of the opinion that there is only one spirit you'll really ever need for the rest of your life and that is rum. That's not to say you shouldn't try others. Indeed you should. But it always behooves a gentle person to have a deeper specialized understanding of their pastimes and pleasures, and as far as alcohol goes rum is both a good starting and ending point for said inquiry.

Rum is the most palatable imbibed solo (as far as spirits are concerned. Liqueurs are obviously much more flavorful but that is comparing apples and oranges)

It also has some simple, elegant, and delicious pairings in cocktails
Mojito - lime, mint, syrup, sparkling water, white rum
*add brown sugar and dark rum for a twist. Add angostura bitters for even more twist.
Cuba Libre - lime, coca cola (made with real cane sugar), dark rum
Macuá - lime, orange, guava, syrup, white or dark rum

Skip the more garish tiki choices such as the Piña Colada or the Mai Tai, although never rule out any cocktail on principle... in the hands of the right bartender even the tackiest of drinks can be salvaged into something intelligent and refreshing.

Do yourself a favor and invest in something a little better than Bacardi or Captain Morgans (shudders). Doesn't need to be super fancy as long as it has some age to it. 4-5 years minimum. My personal favorite is Ron Flor de Caña (Nicaragua) although I have heard Ron Botran (Guatemala) Ron Abuelo (Panama) and Ron del Barrilito (Puerto Rico) are also solid choices.

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/08/17(Mon)13:40 No. 3083

Silly me. I forgot to mention the daiquiri. The classic type. Not the modern 711 slushee inspired version.

Also, if you are looking for something a little off the beaten path and like smokey flavors you should try mescal as an alternative to tequila. It's mostly for sipping although I imagine it would mix well in a mule (lime and ginger beer, served in a copper mug)

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/09/02(Wed)20:21 No. 3087

OP, Jagermeister is not an acceptable drink for a respectable man. Jagermeister is a frat boy's drink.

A well-rounded man should be able to enjoy a quality tipple of any hard liquor. Quality matters - cheap tequila or whiskey is worse than dishwater. Liqueurs are for mixing or aperitifs, not to be drunk straight except on Christmas morning. The ability to appreciate and distinguish between single malt whiskys is indispensible - you can wax poetic about your drink of choice, but if you're not a whisky man you'll never be quite "top shelf".

The key to being a respectable drinker (which critics often overlook) is to have a "nose" for liquor. This means having a physiology sufficiently adapted to alcohol that you can see past the "kick" of the alcohol and register more subtle flavours. As a neophyte drinker, when you describe tequila and vodka as both "extremely nasty" you are having an objectively different experience than I would have with the same drinks - there's a whole complexity of flavour there that you're simply not equipped to taste.

The key to acquiring the taste is to drink high-proof stuff in moderation over a long period. I recommend purchasing a mid-range blended Scotch whiskey and a bottle of Drambuie. Mix half-and-half over ice - this makes a duo called a Rusty Nail, which is sweeter than whisky but just as strong. Over time, adjust the proportions until you're drinking 2/3s or 3/4s whisky, then switch to drinking it straight. If whisky doesn't work for you, pursue a similar strategy with another liquor.

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.

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.

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

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.

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)

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/01/01(Thu)21:43 No. 2987

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.

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/01/03(Sat)20:29 No. 2988

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

Sophisticated Gentleman 15/01/07(Wed)21:05 No. 2994

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.

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.
