Canali Made in Italy Suiting
Clothing

There are hundreds of suit companies and designers all over the world. You can get a suit for as little as $49 from some manufacturers, but what kind of quality does that price point suggest? At the same time, you can get an expensive suit with great fabric, but absolutely no unique features and customizations. With all the options and designers out there, how do you know what to look for? What is the quintessential mark of high quality? Many would argue the “Made in Italy”

Make TOday Legendary - The Sharp Gentleman
CharacterPodcasts

You Can Make Today Legendary™ On a random day a few weeks ago, I was perusing Instagram and stumbled across a brand called Make Today Legendary. They sent me a message about their cause and what their wristband was all about. Skeptical at first, I have to admit I grilled the founder with some follow-up questions. After discovering more about him and the movement behind MTL, I invited him onto the podcast so we could introduce the mission to all of you. It’s an excellent

Elevate Your Leadership with Stoicism - The Sharp Gentleman
CharacterPodcasts

As we grow into management and leadership roles, we are often taught how to lead from the wrong people. More often than not, we learn to lead by seeing the world through the lens of the leader immediately above us. This isn’t necessarily bad, but it can often have us attached to outcomes, directions, and processes that aren’t really our own. The question I invite you to chew on in that situation is this: Is it really your point of view if you were given

why is she mad when I solve the problem
CharacterPodcasts

Men are programmed to conquer things. We come with software already installed from the factory that has us compelled to solve things, right wrongs, and stand and fight. It’s what makes us such great linear thinkers! We see a problem, we focus on the next steps, we take them, and we conquer. Piece of cake. Unfortunately, in our male-pattern-thinking, we completely miss the perspectives and emotions of those around us, and how our actions impact them. To call us stubborn and bullheaded is such an

Middle age is an interesting thing. I can say that now because I officially turn 35 Tuesday, the 21st. Thirty-five. Now, if you feel that 35 isn’t officially middle-age, feel free to let me know in the comments. Much like all of you, I wrestle with the expectations I haven’t met, or in some cases, could not possibly achieve. I remember being a kid thinking how my life would look by the time I’m thirty-five. I would be married and rich and have a job

The Gentleman Warrior with John Lymberopolous - The Sharp Gentleman
CharacterPodcasts

This episode was recorded with lavalier microphones worn on our lapels at SyncLab Media Studios in Dallas, which was both amazing and left me wishing the sound was a better. To help make sure nothing is missed, I took the time to transcribe everything form out 20 minute interview below. There’s also a video (it is a video studio after all) of the interview with bonus footage and some extras, but it is reserved for the members of The Gentleman’s Inner Circle. If you’re looking

How to give the perfect toast
AdventureCharacterPodcasts

In a world full of phobias, public speaking is up there at the top – right next to that spider at the end of Arachnophobia. And yet, men and women both dream about absolutely dominating the room with the perfect toast. Many secretly dream of raising a glass and speaking off-the-cuff with such prose that the ladies swoon and someone starts a slow-clap. It may not go quite as dramatically, but there’s actually a good formula for making sure your toast is remembered for the
