Dapper Gent of the Week: Nicholas Bernard

No comments


Today’s Dapper Gent of the week is Nicholas “Nick” Bernard from Lafayette, LA.


Nick is a very sweet and passionate person, who has a strong love for cigars. He’s a quite person and somewhat shy, but he becomes very comfortable when it’s time to talk about cigars and topics of interest.


Nick’s very knowledgeable about cigars, he’s an avid cigar smoker, and I believe that it would be safe to call him a “Cigar Aficionado.”  Nick has a very noble and sophisticated cigar preference, somewhat nostalgic, which complements his personality.

Not only is Nick heavily knowledgeable about cigars, but he’s an extraordinary barber, with over 25 years of experience.


Also, he’s an aspiring music composer and a USMC Veteran. Most recently, Nick received his Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree this summer, to add to his many achievements and goals.



Nick is triumphant, but he does not give himself full credit for beating the odds that have been stacked up against him, because when you’re used to getting the shortened end of the stick, you don’t know how it feels when you’re winning and should be honored and celebrated.


Nick is reclaiming his identity for how he sees himself in the mirror and I believe that he’s making great strides in the right direction. He’s not letting self-doubt or insecurities stop him.

Nick has the right nick-name, Nick, because with is a fully thick white beard, he puts you in the mind of St. Nick, the fictitious Santa Claus figure, as well as a softer Suge Knight… with his stature and height, the bald head, and big cigars in hand, but of course, he’s no Suge Knight, far from.


Nick loves Bow Ties!

He has a large collection and variety of bow ties, as well as a nice shoe game.


The best thing about Nick is that he’s a family man, he has great character, he’s charismatic and caring. Nick is a stand-up and classic guy, with a lot of down-home country charm, with an ol’skool flair.
