ELEGANTvsORDINARY What Can Men Do The Elegant/Superior/Sophisticated Way vs. Easy Way


New member
One can find much joy in doing something that might take extra effort but yields a superior outcome. What are the benefits of doing things the sophisticated way vs. the easy way? A few examples of this might be:

Writing a letter vs sending an email/text

Shaving with a straight razor v shaving with a modern cartridge or disposable

Detailing your car vs getting a car wash

Fly fishing vs spin fishing

Bow hunting vs rifle hunting

Telemark skiing vs alpine skiing

Cooking a nice mean vs taking someone out to eat

(note: not all these are straight forward. While I see bow hunting as the more elegant tradition for of hunting, other might not. Taking an elk at 400 yards with a rifle isn't necessarily easy).
