    You're young, you should be doing Cuervo shots out of the waitress's asshole in the back alley.


    I like your thinking on this!


    but back on topic. I'll be 28 later this month and I've been enjoying cigars, bourbons, and scotches for years now. nothing wrong with it as long as you enjoy it. Fuck what other people think and how they perceive you.

    I think it's the same as anything else that could make one look like a tool. Conspicuous consumption makes you look like you're trying too hard; doing it in the right context because you genuinely enjoy it does not. If you're at a dive with your friends and you order a high-dollar scotch and smoke an expensive cigar while they're drinking Bud Light and smoking Marlboros you're going to look like the guy who wants everyone to know he has expensive taste, regardless of age. On the other hand, enjoying a cigar after a nice meal or at a cigar bar is no different for a 20-something than it is for a 40-something.

    I think it looks great with their untucked stripped shirts and dockers.

    What the fuck is this stupid thread? If you enjoy it, it doesn't matter if you're 20 or 40. Most of my cigar smoking is done outdoors on my own, or on the deck/balcony/rooftop or something. Smoking cigars at bars/parties/restaurants gets some people pissed off and I don't wanna ruin someone's night, so usually I don't do that.

    He was probably 1 year old at that point.

    No need to be the special flower. Why be the guy who orders a scotch when everyone is drinking from pitchers.

    I don't give a fuck what everyone else is drinking, if i want a scotch, I'll get a fucking scotch. Why should I get a beer if I want a scotch? Just to fit in? It's not like I am fucking sitting there going "Scotchy scotch scotch.. so tasty.. look at those poor losers drinking beer"

    Why do I have to try to fit in if I know what I like? I don't make a habit of going to blue collar bars and ordering cognac, but if I'm in a situation like that, I'm going to order what I like, which probably isn't what everyone else is drinking.
