Good day fine gents!
I was taking a stroll the other day when I came across a new fencing academy near a local park. I was immediately hypnotized by the beauty of a particularly graceful match, and it got me wondering, what other gentlemanly sports there might be out there?

I am, I must admit, quite surprised that Canne du Combat has not been mentioned! The quintessential gentleman's sport, truly, as it takes advantage of a gentleman's cane for use as a weapon.

Good God, ruffians have attempted to hijack this fencing thread and take it to Thugsville, which is a step worse than LoutBurg. Time to correct that. ahem...

I have fenced sabre for nearly ten years. I have been the US National Champion once, and have had the privilege of serving overseas on the US National Team.

Fencing is like playing a first person shooter, but against a physical opponent in hair trigger time. It is exhilarating.

Beginners are welcomed with open arms, as we all remember our first days with a blade. Fencing clubs are also a great way of meeting other very bright individuals. It is very safe, injuries are rare. It's also amazingly good, low impact very high caloric burn exercise. Also, stick with it and you'll develop insanely fast reflexes; not a bad thing when driving a car.

If you have questions, please feel free to ask.

In parting, I leave you with my absolute favorite fencing goods supplier, Leon Paul. I would no more step into combat without Leon Paul equipment than fight naked with only a stick as a weapon.

Which tonics does /class/ find appropriate for consumption?

My pick is Moxie. It has an acquired taste, but unfortunately, it isn't available in most places outside of New England.

I live in Pennsylvania and first had Moxie at summer camp (counselor had a stash of it with him and shared.) I love it and have had it a few times since then, but can't find anyplace around here that sells it. Oh well. Great taste, though, OP.

Although soft drinks and similar beverages are horrifically expensive to ship by post, there are now specialty stores that carry such things; it's how I acquire Moxie in the centre of the continent. Now if they could deign to stock Spezi and Julmust.

Gentlemen, for quite some time now I have been pondering the question "What makes a Man a Man?" and I have come up with no clear, single answer. Perhaps one of you fine gents can provide your opinion on the question?

The picture is only as related as you wish it to be.

So you could say that a real man delivers..(heh)

I myself haven't found a solution for what makes a Man a Man, but I have changed my technique to find it out.
Now I will ask myself what is the opposite action from man/manly, for example: If you aren't a man of your words, i don't think you're a man.

Hi /class/,

I'm sitting outside in my garden enjoying my pipe and my glass of whisky.
Tell me though,
what brand of tobacco (cigars, cigarettes or pipe) and what whisky do you prefer?

I enjoy clan tobacco as it is what my grandfather once gave me.
I really like a good glenmorrangie though chivas regal 18 is very enjoyable too.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you gentlemen prefer!

Hello chums.

Recently, I retrieved some (somewhat)aged Remy Martin V.S.O.P. from my liquor cabinet, and had a few sips before I realized that the damn thing tasted like hand sanitizer.

My inquiry is this: are there any other cognacs which give less of a bite within the realm of, oh, $50 or so?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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?)

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.

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)
