Welcome to The Alternative Gentleman- a lifestyle guide for growing-up in The Scene.
The Alternative Gentleman respects himself and is courteous of those around him, even if the feeling is not reciprocated. He is loyal; a staunch defender of friendship. He speaks truth and values honest expressions of emotion. He takes pride in his community and prescribes to the DIY ethic- supporting local venues and artisans. He has strong opinions about life and the arts, yet is unwilling to bend in the name of social conformity.
It’s a call to give up your self-doubt, to take pride in your unique perspective, and to grow-up without selling-out.
About the Author:
My name is Isaac. I come from a small town in West Virginia. Growing up I never really fit in with my peers and I was ok with that. In 2001 I was introduced to Saves The Day and my life hasn’t been the same since. The Scene provided me a community of which I was proud to belong. Now at 28 I’m trying to balance my ideals with the real world.
My wife and I started dating in 2001 and were married in 2008. Deidra is an elementary school teacher & part-time crafter but her most impressive talent is putting up with me. Her jewelry, hair-, & fashion-accessories can be found on Etsy.
