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."

Brian Splash replied to Matt's discussion Water Bag Owners in the group Man Bags

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

Family

Since losing the faith I find I have a difficult time maintaining close relationships with my parents and siblings who are strong believers. We don't fight, we all love each other, but there is a barrier that prevents anything too deep from happening. They are still faithfully waiting and expecting a prodigal son to return, so things seem to be a state of arrested development.I'd love to read about anybody's experience/success with bridging this divide in a healthy way, or of what potential…See More
