Good day or evening, gentlemen! What are your preferences when it comes musical finery? I'll start:
One of my personal favorites is Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique, of that I've had the pleasure of performing and listening to whenever I am able.

Ah, yes. A quite embarrassing mistake, but I thank you for correcting me without undue reprimand. That aside, I agree with your tastes. Electroswing seems to combine two relatively lively and popular (in their times) genres into an enjoyable third genre. But one cannot forget the roots, and what fine roots indeed.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/12(Sat)01:14 No. 2747

Scott Joplin particularly "Solace" and the opera "Treemonisha". also the occasional musical especially shows such as Ragtime and Spring Awakening. Ragtime has incredibly clear and rich orchestrations in the turn of the century style lots of solo instruments and percussion. Spring awakening is much more minimal and even uses rock but only sparingly and does so excellently. Particulary nice is the use of the string quartet with the other instruments in an almost impressionist style. reminds me quite a bit of the debussy string quartet 3rd movement.

As a gentleman oft pressed with the vicissitudes of life, I lean towards sharp, coarse compositions. Names such as Schnitke and Cowell are usually in order. Prokofiev, in particular, is quite deserving in this category. Of course, amongst polite company and friendly camaraderie I will quote the works of Bach and Chopin as well, as any other proper man of letter would.

I was advised to try chancho marino when I was in Peru as part of the "pick something of the menu at random and see if it's any good" experience thinking it was some kind of Peruvian surf 'n' turf.

I received an oversized tuna steak (I love tuna steak) but the flavour was a bit more mellow and it had a smoother texture. Half-way through my friend translated it for me and I immediately regretted not taking a photo before hand to show off my achievement.

So, to answer your question, it's quite good, but I prefer tuna.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/18(Fri)21:08 No. 2756

Think of squirrel meat mixed with stewed alligator liver sauteed in shark oil and spruce. That's the approximate taste.

Gentlemen, please. Your collective conduct is rather unbecoming. As users of this board, it is your duty to act and speak in a civilised manner. I can see that there are certain disagreements in this thread, however I see no need for foul language and name calling.

In regards to the OP; I'm afraid I shall not be sharing this image with my acquaintances, for comedic purposes or otherwise. I apologize for disappointing you.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/18(Fri)21:05 No. 2755

The questioned posited by the OP's gentleman in the picture is indeed of utmost importance. The search of a random generator, based solely on deterministic rules, seem to be a contradiction in itself and yet, one that is continually advanced. While no current scheme is perfect they are often within the error mark of many systems and they certainly took more than two days to formulate.

As for the gentleman's attire, I must say quite dandy.

My day is made when I get some fresh air. I live in a little town which has an alarming number of trees lining the streets, so the air is very clear and clean.

I still listen to metal but I stopped "dressing metal" at 22.

I had a shitty job, shitty friends and a whinging emo bitch girlfriend.

I dumped them all, cleaned up my act and got a nice paying job in IT.

The device itself cannot be classy. Like any smoking peripheral, it depends on how you carry yourself while using it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/01/02(Thu)21:54 No. 2658

As long as it can be repurposed to blow bubbles.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/01/04(Sat)02:52 No. 2659

One could enjoy the occasional pipe or cigar while staying classy as long as all of it is of high quality and it is done simply for the pleasure of the quality while staying classy but other than that tobaccy is never classy. It's about as classy as having tattoos or soiling oneself.

Say gentlemen, what is your shaving tool of choice? Is it perhaps the shaving knife, a safety razor or is it possibly one of those hideous modern multi blade type of razors?

I myself have recently bought a safety razor, model Merkur 34c and so far im very content with it.

The picture is of course related.

Shave myself? My fine sir that is what a barber is for. Only boors and plebeians shave themselves .

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/09/08(Sun)06:49 No. 2525


I have built a small wooden box out of solid maple, foam and brass hardware. It holds two Dovo straight razors. I lay my strop in the bottom of my suitcase and I use the Simpsons Major shaving brush. Combined with Colonel Conk soap and a small bottle of self-made aftershave I'm all set.

I always make sure I give my razors a touch-up on the hone before travel. Nothing worse than being out of town and discovering your razor is dull.

The day I travel home I either don't shave or I work the brush against a dry towel and then open it up again the minute I get home. Can't let a damp brush get moldy, but it seems to survive a few hours in transit.

So basically, because I have to travel for business and I'm dedicated to this method of shaving, I spent a bunch of extra money to gave the right stuff.

Cast iron or nonstick?

My mind is already made up for the cast iron camp. My go to skillet is a Lodge 12". I know cast iron cooking takes a bit more knowledge. Seasoning of the metal must be understood. The thought of dish soap removed.

Good, heavy, cast iron, heats so evenly and cooks so cleanly that I've shunned the other option. Has nonstick technology caught up to the point of wanting to pass cookware down generation like well treated cast iron? I think of all the pans I've seen with the nonstick surface worn off. Shudders.

I hate the idea I may be holding on to an old school method simply because its an old school method. I'm the first to say old is not always better. But I have yet to see an improvement in my opinion. Even if the nonstick coating is Perfect, if its on a thin pan, the heat wont be spread correctly.

TL:DR Cast iron or nonstick

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/12/11(Wed)21:10 No. 2634

Cast iron is just too much to deal with and requires a lot of grapseed, olive and vegetable oils
Ceramic non stick is hardly non stick and gets scortched at the bottom and gets hard to clean after awhile.
I prefer stone ware

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/12/15(Sun)21:43 No. 2638

I prefer non-stick, because I know how to care for it by not using sharp metal (i.e. anything but a metal spatula) on it. I might learn to like cast iron if I knew how to care for it. To be honest, I only learned not to use soap on it just last Thanksgiving.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/12/16(Mon)07:14 No. 2639

I like cooking in mine, but I find cleaning it to be a real chore sometimes- it's no where near as easy as my carbon steel wok, due to the fairly rough texture of a new pan and the angled sides- Fish, sausages etc are fine in it, but cleaning after cooking bacon or steak is really hard- water doesn't remove the gunk, you have to wipe it out manually, and it uses up loads of kitchen towels.

The sear I get on those steaks though is amazing, far superior to my older creuset cast iron non stick frying pan.
