I'm curious what the editor was thinking cutting from, "we have cigars from $14 to $250 (or whatever the top end was)," to "...you can smoke...very inexpensive cigars."

Granted, they're talking about single cigars in New York City, but the most expensive of my "go tos" is under 14 bucks apiece by the box. And it's a darn fine smoke.

Why do these type of vids always show a world of suits......:rolleyes:

So distant from the real cigar world.

Hmm...

I guess there's a bum for every seat. I don't know the context of the vid (cnn money), but I imagine if a bunch of lawyers, bankers, etc were meeting up after work, they'd probably still be wearing suits. I also imagine that the cigar world, both real and how we each imagine it, has many facets. I guess better they're promoting cigars versus rallying against them.

Do they wear suits at the Habanos festivals? How do they promote their cigars?

Whatevs.....

  You always know that a video with elevator music is going to end up trying to portray a certain lifestyle..

  Good to see a different side of things though, it's not the cigar community I recognise entirely :D

This appears to be Club Macanudo in New York City.  The suits are explained by: 1) this is NYC, and 2) NYC Club Macanudo has a dress code.

      *At the end of the video I had to remark to myself that there were no "Habanas" among the smokes:

       But then, the fact that the first cigar band displayed was from a Las Cabrillas stunned me - WHO smokes those :blink:  :confused:  The first one I tried back in my beginning of getting into this hobby I tried one - one.  I said, "Never again." Some Don Tomas` I've had in past years were actually superb IMHO. However - it does seem like sacrilege to ever talk about cigar smoking and class without including something from Cuba.

This plays to a stereotype for many.  I'm a suit, and rarely wear one when I'm at any club.  Stinks 'em up bad -- and come on.  Not comfortable.  

But I also know the fat Tarantino type in the video that populate some of the places intown, always in the financial districts where dry aged steaks are within arm's reach.

They could've done better with this subject though.  But hey, usual lazy CNN filler.

Two things about this video.   First this seems like a fluff piece that was done because someone at CNN knows the Owner/Manager of Club Macanudo.   Secondly I listen to a podcast and the person that runs the podcast always says if you ever wonder how wrong the media is all the time wait until they do a piece on you.

I normally wear suits for the big events, like Habanos festival or our national Habanos Day. the rest of the time I wear something casual.

Not as bad as I thought it would be if you just listen to what is said and block out the elevator music. As long as you enjoy a cigar I don't care how you dress.
