Does culture determine the geneltman?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Erik A. Jul 20, 2012. 30 Replies

Is the only possible gentleman in the world, ignoring all cultures, the Victorian English gentleman? Or, is it possible for someone to be a gentleman in accordance with the culture in which he lives?Continue

Is punctuality truly a gentlemanly trait?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Josh Jul 19, 2012. 55 Replies

"I do so, too. Years ago I attend a client of mine to his judicial hearing and I forget about my swiss army knife in my pants pocket. So the alert of the safety testing began to warn the security guards of the court. Kind of a funny situation. The…"

"Been carrying one every day since around 1982.  Victorinox.  I feel half-naked if I mistakenly leave it at home (happens about two or three times a year). They keep chancing the names and features:  Explorer, tinker, super…"

"I've carried a mini-SAK on my keychain everyday since I was 17 years old (more than 20 years now). It's a Victorinox and has a blade, a file and scissors. It's a very high quality tool that I use daily for small tasks, opening…"

Oddball replied to Matt's discussion Swiss Army Knife
"I never leave home without one, but I go for the Victorinox brand because the steel is harder. It takes longer to sharpen, but the edge stays longer. Wenger are also good, but the steel (IMHO) is softer, therefore easier to sharpen in a hurry, but…"

Steve Pierce replied to Matt's discussion Water Bag Owners in the group Man Bags
"I was leaning towards the large bag anyhow, this just sort of reinforces that decision. I really want a bag that can hold several days worth of clothes and think that too big would be better than too small. Thanks again for the great review."

Steve Pierce replied to Matt's discussion Water Bag Owners in the group Man Bags

"Thanks for all the replies, you helped me make up my mind. I ended up buying a peacoat instead, which is a lot more useful for me right now. As for the blazer, I decided that when I do get a jacket, I'll go for a grey or maybe navy one."

What Do We Learn From History?

I decided to put this question in the main forum, because if it was in a group like The History Buffs, there would be a smaller audience. Because everyone learns history at some point in his education, it is a matter that could be of interest to almost all members and not just a select few.So we all have learned some form of history in school, from local to national to the histories of far off lands and times. What is it that we learn from people of bygone places and times? There are some…See More
