OLD SCHOOL MAN: What is an Old School Man?


Steve McQueen – the quintessential Old School Man

What is an Old School Man?

Think Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Sean Connery, Lee Marvin, James Dean, Peter Fonda, Marlon Brando and all of the guys on the TV show Mad Men.

These are the type of men who drank straight whiskey, smoked cigars in restaurants, played poker in the locker room, cursed and carried a .45. They were the quintessential “Tough Guy” who could fight, hunt, and ride a horse.

They had an 8 cylinder sports car and motorcycle in the garage, and when either broke down never called someone to fix it because as long as he had hands he would fix it his damn self. He never cried about his problems or went to therapy; he sucked it up and did what he had to do.

Ladies loved him because he was a real man who was a provider and protector, the type of man that opened a door for a gal not because she expected it, because he was a gentleman.

Men respected him because of his unquestionable loyalty to his friends, he was the type of man to bail a friend out of jail at 3AM or break him out if no bail was set. He would cover a friends back in combat or the boardroom, and when an Old School man said he would take a bullet for you he wasn't speaking metaphorically - he would take an actual damn bullet for a friend.

But unfortunately the Old School Man is a dying breed…

The idea of a Man has changed from a straight-up bourbon drinking guy in a fedora to a guy wearing a tight-ass t-shirt drinking a vanilla-peach vodka cocktail mixed with Pepsi. The eight cylinder V8 Mustang has been replaced by Prius, and the 45. automatic replaced by an iPod.

But no more my brothers, the Old School Man is back, and his mission is to fight the Pussifacation of America, One Prius Driving, Vegan, Low-Rise Jean Wearing Femi-Man at a Time.

You won’t find any articles apologizing for our opinions on what it is like to be a real man, nor will you find any politically correct nanny-state nonsense that dominates today’s mass media.

What you will find on the Old School Man are articles about how the Old School Man acts, dresses, drinks, smokes, drives and kicks ass presented in a no bull-shit style.

If any of the above bothered you or hurt your feelings then go pick up a copy of Mangina Monthly and fuck-off
