How The Gentleman Stole Christmas

December 21st, 2009

A gentleman is always in high demand, but no more so than during the holidays, when eggnog-swilling guests anticipate his arrival with the giddiness of snot-nosed children awaiting St. Nick. Never one to deprive others of his dazzling presence (or himself of a delicious open bar), the gentleman makes sure to gallivant with redoubled vigor, [...]

 

A gentleman hardly considers his outright market domination and boardroom brilliance labor-intensive, yet he still makes the time to celebrate the hard work of the office-drones. As the final holiday of the summer season, a gentleman uses Labor Day parties to retire his summertime, sartorial ensemble. Sporting an immaculate seersucker jacket, a flamboyant shirt and [...]

 

Sometimes a gentleman just isn’t himself and it takes a grotesque amount of gallivanting, a liberal amount of booze and of course the loyal services of a fellow gent-in-arms to resuscitate our hero and get him back in the saddle again. And what a glorious sight it truly is to behold a gentleman rediscovering his [...]

 

A gentleman is nothing if not one big bottomless cocktail of class. Zig-zagging down the street with a brown-bagged highball in one gloved hand and devilishly spinning his bow tie with the other while making AHH-OO-GAH eyes and wolf-whistling at every female he passes, our champion not only exudes elegance and sophistication, he embodies it.

A gentleman is accustomed to being the center of attention at all social engagements he graces with his princely presence. So you can imagine a gent’s distress when a garish guest swoops in to steal his thunder. Unable to win the party over with his charm alone, this pretender to the gentleman’s throne is forced to [...]

 

Whether she’s attending a delightful whiskey and tea party in prohibition cellars or has just torn up the dance floor at a secret Habsburg holiday ball, a gentlelady always follows up all events with the issuance of a token letter. This letter is sometimes a simple thank you note, but can occasionally take the form [...]

 

A gentleman never trembles in the presence of greatness because the gentleman is always the greatest man in the room. However, should a silver screen legend grace a party, a gentleman always feels compelled to thank him for his years of service to the entertainment industry. Unlike the rabid fans who rush to the feet [...]

 

A Gentleman Loses His Way

May 21st, 2009

Following a long, adventurous afternoon of relaxation, regalement and riotous revelry, a weary and otherwise zonked gentleman is keen to beckon the driver of his horseless chariot to deliver him to his residence, regardless of how close it may be to the watering hole at which he has held extended court. However, surprises abound at [...]

 

When a situation calls for extreme precision, a gentleman is usually on hand to heed the call. Whether he’s dazzling archery spectators by shooting apples off the town runt’s noggin, landing narcotic-smuggling planes on narrow jungle runways, or simply pouring the perfect meniscus for his morning martini, the exactness of a gentleman’s actions is the [...]

 

There’s something unique in the gentleman’s blood that compels him to be ever intrepid and adventurous, an innate itch that drives him to discover and explore new things, be it the highest and perkiest of peaks to the smallest, most private and forbidden nooks and crannies. And though much of the globe has already been [...]
