A Query Sophisticated Gentleman 13/04/05(Fri)06:32 No. 2215 [Reply]

File 136513633389.jpg - (139.15KB , 1600x1071 , BowlerHat.jpg )

To all whom it may concern:

I consider myself a patron of the arts, and engage my mind in higher pursuits for the joy of knowledge.
I maintain my body in concert with my mind, staying well-muscled without growing boorish.
I do lounge in low company, but endeavor to be of a stately bearing in mixed company, and am gentle in speech in all places.
I argue in the traditional meaning of the word only, for I am fond of polite debate and spurn the sourly-manged dogfights of heated words.
I ask of others first, only mentioning my pastimes if their mention is sought after.
When asked, I do not ramble, brag, or spin falsehoods.
When I escort my date to various amusements or fine dining, I foot the bill discretely,
without drawing attention to the sizeable paycheque that comes from my respectable employment.

I understand that repetitive "I" statements are off-putting, but feel as though they are applicable in these words.
I am grateful for your fortitude for reading thus far.

My life is charmed, but for this one spot that mars: I am unsure if one may be a gentleman, and also a woman.

Indeed. A gentle woman is not a gentleman at all but a lady, which is for all intents and purposes the same and equal thing, only by a different name, as it were.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/28(Wed)16:38 No. 2517

Whichever name you choose for it is of low importance.
The idea of dividing people by gender and seeing differences will not parish, but seeing one as lower or not capable of anything only because of group affiliation is a grave mistake our society has made.
Therefore every struggle to correct this mistake by disproving these assumptions, without overstepping the personal boundaries of other people, is just and in no case foolish.
Welcome among us, Ms. Bowler, I salute you and hope our answer, even though it will probably not be a final one, is to your liking.

As it happens, I am a purveyor of the age of enlightenment and era of some of the greatest gentlemen to have ever bore the title. You simply require a role model, an embodiment of the spirit you seek, creator of this post. That gentlewoman is Émilie du Châtelet, said by the sly, and intellectual gentleman Voltaire to be "a great man whose only fault was being a woman"

Dear Sophisticated Friends,
Do you have any opinions of what the best cigar for $10 or under is?
I'm fairly new to cigar smoking, but so far I prefer meduros. Have no favorite brands yet, so any opinions will be considered.

Obviously you are not familiar with Nubs, good sir. You'd be surprised to find their ring gauges to be from the high 50s to low 70s, far from slim.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/09/05(Thu)04:19 No. 2523

Oliva milds are a fantastic smoke and only cost about $8. They taste like a buttery campfire. Super delicious.

I write political and business philosophy in a spiral notebook with a Montblanc Meisterstuck No. 146

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/09/01(Sun)10:05 No. 2521

I like smothering my other halves. Every relationship has its costs. However much I have been willing to pay has paid me back in spades. Today I get freebies and take what I want without paying. The finest intellectual pursuit a gentleman can take is that of relationships.

So, gentlemen, can one even buy snuff at a physical location in America anymore? Seems like most people order it online.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/02(Fri)10:43 No. 2463

Oh, and of course I mean nasal snuff.

You'll have to call a locally owned tobacco shop (not those awful bodegas, either) and see if they actually carry it, or if they can order it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/24(Sat)20:34 No. 2508

From my understanding good sir it is exactly the same as finely chopped chew. I know many a chewer that takes a snuff right before he chews.

Favorite brands of liquor? Man:Endangered. 12/12/26(Wed)04:15 No. 1878 [Reply]

My favorite brand of liquor would probably be the classic Baileys, and my secondary choice would be Fireball. I know many dislike Fireball (Or any "sweet" drinks for that matter) but I am a big fan of the sugary-tasting liquors. Post yours (And possibly any good stories to go along with it?)

I would love to but it's hard for me to come by any variety of gin in my area. I've tried to special order quite a few and no store I've been to can seem to get any of it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/17(Sat)16:05 No. 2495

My personal spirit of choice is Cruzan single barrel rum. A premium drink to be enjoyed in the evening as a complimentary addition to a completed meal.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/18(Sun)02:21 No. 2496

My D.O.C would most certainly be a very close tie between a "Cuba Libre" (Bacardi and Lime) and A good "Sainte Archie" (Goldschlager and Red Gatorade)(Official Drink of the New Orleans Saints)

Greetings /class/
I wasn't sure where the best place to ask for this was, but I figured this was the best fit.

I'm looking for good ambient music similar to the one in this link http://youtu.be/zUBk_w_oZmU?t=14m8s (the episode itself is unrelated.) If anyone knows of anything similar or instances where they have heard something similar, it would be a nice thing to share.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/08(Thu)06:30 No. 2471

It sounds like what you are looking for is quite specific. Some sort of lounge jazz with ambient influences. Hopefully this is what you're looking for.

Hello gentlemen!

Let's listen to classy music that only gentlemen of our standards may appreciate!

Here are a few good tunes to start with.

Sir I feel that it is my duty to inform you, that your taste in music is quite limited. Arcade Fire is an incredibly popular band that many of the ignorant populace is more then aware of.

Your two final choices are soundtracks for immensely popular video games. While these games and their soundtracks are by no means bad, using these as examples of classy music only makes your tastes appear plebian in nature.

Do not think that with this post I wish to offend you, I only wish to bring these matters to your attention so that in the future when you are among company of a more judgmental nature you will not appear boorish.

With that out of the way, I also have some music to share.

I believe it is now time to play the extremely gentlemanly game of Mornington Crescent. I believe the Fidgly-Westhampton Variations will do for now. For those not familiar with them, Burnt Oak and Chomsley derivatives of it can only be play while in possession of a green token.

First station: Green Park. go!

Aha! you've left an opening. I'll play Brixton this turn. Mornington Crescent in one.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/07/21(Sun)01:26 No. 2448

A cunning move, but a dangerous one. In accordance with the Fidgly-Westhampton Variations I now challenge you to present to me your luggage for a random anti-terror inspection.

Sophisticated Gentleman (OP) 13/08/03(Sat)04:13 No. 2465

Why, Rotherhithe of course. Played by Brooke-Taylor in the third leg of the second semi-final of the seventh round of the Armitage Shanks U.K. Domestic League division four, if memory serves. Excellent play going on so far by the way.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/07/21(Sun)18:02 No. 2452

It all depends on what the woman is looking for, how you present yourself, and what her first impression is. If she keeps hooking up with lesser men, then look at them and see what they do that you don't. Try diffrent approaches as well. As Albert Eistien once said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting to get diffrent results"

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/07/21(Sun)19:52 No. 2454

I'm confused, sir. You post a picture of a woman without class, and say that women such as this prefer men without class, and then ask how one would "class up" to interest said type of women when the premise dictates that more class would put you farther outside the interests of such a woman.

The answer to your problem, then, is either to "class down" as it were, or to find a classier specimen of woman.

What pipe tobacco do you like. Recently I've been smoking Original Choice, which is pretty nice.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/06/01(Sat)18:51 No. 2376

Ah, I seem to have already made a relevant post in another thread.

>[...] the only brand of tobacco I smoke is Captain Black, as it is the only palatable consumer tobacco I can stand to pack. My usual blend of choice is Maple Walnut, which tastes delightfully of pancakes. My second blend of choice would be Cherry Rum. Both go very well with a glass of Habushu or Macallan's 18 Sherry Oak.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/07/21(Sun)17:55 No. 2451

I find both Dunhill Nightcap and MacBarren's Latakia Blend to be good tobaccos. The local tobacconist also carries a navy flake that is fairly decent, but I don't know the specifics such as brand of that specific tobacco.
