Suddenly, building that fireside den he’s always coveted, outfitting his Bentley with nitrous boosters for illegal street racing, perfecting his air guitar skills and devoting more time [...]

 

Gentlelady of the Week: Epic Fail

February 26th, 2009

In most professional and social settings, a gentlelady is usually an impeccably elegant character, always graceful and sophisticated and unflappable; a dainty but headstrong woman who comes to the table armed with a thirst for adventure and a hunger for debauchery that rivals any gentleman worth his salt. However, all bets are off when [...]

 

Full-time rabble-rouser, part-time adventurer and all-around gentleman Christian DeBenedetti has started a most excellent new blog titled, The Accidental Extremist. Every day he posts user-submitted stories of trips gone awry — from a lass crashing in a helicopter on a Valentine’s Day date to a lad heavily drinking in London and suddenly realizing he couldn’t [...]

A well-mannered gentleman is accustomed to the various liberties and privileges society grants him, including automatic upgrades, instant discounts, kick downs, kick backs, buy backs, and overall, just generally being treated like a true gentleman in all imaginable scenarios.

A Gentlelady Paints The Town Red

February 18th, 2009

When she isn’t skiing down the slopes of St. Moritz, presiding over philanthropic benefits at Carnegie Hall or shimmying into cocktail dresses and holding court in Palm Beach, an elegant lady of the upper echelon can usually be found lurking under the radar, subversively swilling shots in back-alley bars, executing dive and roll maneuvers from [...]

 

A Gentleman Maintains His Health
