Adventure

Much to my surprise, I grew up to become a man that likes a cigar or two on a fairly regular basis. I don’t know whether it’s the celebratory attachment I have with them (new marriage, new baby, new adventure, job well done, etc.), or the camaraderie I get when I relax with my friends and enjoy a few good cigars on Thursday nights. The point is, I don’t know enough about cigars to give any credible advice. But I trust the people in my

Honest Filippo Loreti Watch Review
Clothing

An honest Filippo Loreti Review. From time to time, a brand or design will catch my eye and give me all the warm and fuzzy feelings I’m looking for. Maybe it’s a new model, maybe it’s a color, or maybe a new design altogether. Something I’m used to experiencing is the immediate desire to have it. I’m also used to items being either ridiculously expensive – why can’t that AMG GTS be closer to $50k instead of $150k – or built with terrible materials, methods,

An honest Tommy John Underwear review
Clothing

Once and for all… is it really worth the upgrade? An honest Tommy John Underwear review **SIX MONTH UPDATE AT THE END! I remember a time in high school when my friends were wearing boxers from Abercrombie and Express and Tommy Hilfiger, and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I looked at the prices and knew I could spend my money on better things. Certainly things that delivered more value! I’ve been a boxer-brief guy for as long as I can remember. I

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

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

My review of harry's shaving razors - The Sharp Gentleman
Grooming

It seems like new companies are popping up every day that offer home-delivered razors and shaving kits. While I love the concept, inexpensive products shipped to your door usually end up being worth less than the cost of shipping. When Harry’s started getting some traction and showed up in my local Target, my curiosity reached critical mass. I reached out to Dani at Harry’s HQ with questions about their razors, lotions, and concept. She offered to send me a kit and prove they know what

Right Way to Wear Cologne - The Sharp Gentleman
CharacterGroomingPodcasts

Have you ever been minding your own business when suddenly a perfume or cologne wafts through the air and completely captures your attention? Maybe it was a scent that reminded you of that old girlfriend you had back in college. Maybe it reminded you of that guy at the office that smells like he bathes himself in cologne before coming to work every morning. Whatever it was, smell is one of the most powerful senses when it comes to triggering old memories and creating new
