The Humble Gents
Welcome to The Humble Gentlemen - a website devoted to exploring what it means to embrace authentic masculinity.
Wondering where to start? Read on to learn more about who we are and why we exist.
Growing up I always admired the “manly men” I saw on television. I always wondered if they really existed. The men that loved to build, be engrossed in nature, could fix almost anything, and were authentic.
A lot of the guys I hung out with looked up to these men as well. We all wanted to be like them. But the only examples we had were in Hollywood.
There was a time though, when these types of men existed. We often here about the greatest generation for example. Our country was founded on the principles laid bare by men like this. Yet many of us feel lost. We’ve misplaced the self-confidence, motivation, skills, and qualities that these great men embodied. Today we see a stripping of manliness to the point where many men feel more like eunuchs then anything. And this stripping has left men separate, struggling with their identities, angry and sexless. We have forgotten, or perhaps never known, what it means to be a seasoned mature man.
Where my generation had great men to look up to, even if only on television, today’s generation is inundated with images of sex, money, and six-pack abs.
The Humble Gentlemen seeks to explore once again, what it means to be masculine. To offer an ancient right and insight to those who are searching for a way to be a man than beyond money, power and a hot woman.
The Humble Gentlemen is a site where we explore coming of age at whatever age. We dive into all things masculine — from the solemn and ethical to skills and fun.
We yearn to discover the authentic and real, to live a life of virtue and skill. At the end of the day, we look to blend these virtues and skills to offer men a way to live an authentic meaningful life.
Ultimately, The Humble Gentlemen is here to encourage man to be better partners, fathers, and friends.
