Dapper Gent Spotlight: David Short


Gents and Cigar Sticks spotlight’s David Short out of Tennessee.


There are many things that can be said about a cigar smoker, but for David, who was introduced to cigars by his father, at the age of 18, he has a lot of sentimental value, as it pertains to being a cigar smoker, especially since those were memorable moments that he shared with his father, so early on.  This is pretty special because each time he smokes a cigar, he can associate a particular memory or conversation he had with his father when he’s reflecting.  As with many of us, when you’re first starting off as a cigar smoker, you’re unsure about cigars, you’re not as educated about them, as well as you’re not aware of the culture. Essentially, you’re just smoking them, to be smoking them, because it looks cool. However, over time, if you continue to explore smoking cigars, then you become much more mature and educated about cigars and that’s what happened for David, once he turned 21. He totally became a fanatic and super obsessed about cigars, and wanting to learn as much as he could about them, and slowly but surely, he was turning into cigar enthusiast.


This dapper gentleman, who is originally from Chicago, has a great balance of enjoying his cigars with an aged scotch or bourbon, as well as he enjoys a cold craft beer of lager, to keep his senses intrigued.

Also, David likes to incorporate a healthy lifestyle, by exercising regularly and eating correctly in moderation and making healthier choices. David is a diligent sanitation specialist for a major beverage company, as well as he’s a devoted father of two teenagers that keep him very busy.


However, in his downtime, he loves to attend music festivals, museums, and art galleries. He definitely believes in working hard, but playing harder, and indulging in the fruits of his labor, by treating himself to nice things.

David is our dapper gent spotlight for today, because he’s a genuine person, who truly enjoys cigars, and he’s very knowledgeable about cigars. And, he has an extensive collection of cigars. Also, he’s mastered the craft of knowing how to express self-love and show love back without arrogance.
