Beschreibung

Refine your cool with this quintessential sourcebook of manners and mischief. Author-raconteurs Phineas Mollod and Jason Tesauro offer timely advice and timeless wisdom for adventurous gents curious about:

JAZZ & FLASKMANSHIP
FRIENDS & GAFFES
DATING & ENTERTAINING

TUXEDOS & TATTOOS

With new sections covering the Digital Man, the Local Epicure, and the Bespoke Gent, this second edition provides a panoramic snapshot of the enlightened modern man: witty and poignant, traditional but tech savvy, flirtatious yet courtly. So roll up your yoga mat, uncork a Barolo, spin some vinyl, and crack open this freshly updated edition of The Modern Gentleman: your Man Cycle is peaking.

Phineas Mollod uses his Vanderbilt law degree to counsel his wayward pals in divorces and landlord-tenant imbroglios and write about technology law in New York City. Jason Tesauro forewent law school for a mastery of wine, spirits, style, and sustainable food. You'll find him swinging a croquet mallet in Richmond, Virginia, or wielding a champagne saber as he conducts the Modern Gentleman Seminar Series and other events of consequence around the world.
