Oliver Jarvis is the in-house writer for Asian Geographic Magazines ltd. He currently resides in Singapore, where he is adapting to a culture which is far different from his simple British roots! Out of the office, Oliver enjoys travelling Asia; writing, photographing and, after both producing and directing his own documentary, now enjoys videoing his experiences. Once a lifestyle writer for The Gentleman's Journal, and The National Student, Oliver decided to change his 'game' and cover topics that actually matter. Ultimately he wishes one day to have made enough money to retire with a Pina Colada on an isolated beach - a little like Tom Hanks in Castaway, but without the beat-up football.

It's a tough one... compiling a list of lyrics that every gentleman will agree with as having the most meaning. After all, every man has his own set like he does his own golf clubs.
It's the modern way nowadays, when selecting wine from a supermarket shelf, to go for the most eye-catching label or the most efficiently priced. There are many reasons for this; we just don't have the time nor the money for quality fine wine, and even if we did - we know sod-all about what is the best, or what goes with what.

A gentleman's bookshelf says more about the man he is than his most watched on Netflix, his favourite sex position on a Sunday morning or his opinion on Joey Essex. Indisputably it's what a man reads, how he empathises with the characters and how he uses what he learns from them, that defines him.
