A simple and cultured life.


Vince of The Mannered - About Me


My name is Vince and I am the editor at themannered.com.

Who am I?

I was born in Manila, Philippines and moved shortly to the United States thereafter with my family. I was raised in a small town in Texas and after my studies I caught the wanderlust and travelled the world until my journey came to fulfillment in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria.

I met my beautiful wife here and we have two adorable, opinionated and energetic children.

My Kids The Mannered

I work for the United Nations and I enjoy the following in no particular order:

  • Dreaming, planning and making things happen with my wife
  • Playing, teaching and forming my children
  • Good conversation
  • Helping to make the world a better place
  • Mornings
  • Good red wine
  • Good white wine
  • Trappist Beer
  • Tailored clothing
  • Travelling with my family
  • Good food
  • Anything that is handcrafted, quality made, and/or made from the heart
  • Vintage Wristwatches

Why did I start themannered.com?

I believe in living a life of purpose. I believe in not wasting a single second or cent. I believe that all things we have in our disposal can be geared towards something greater – whether that be from our financial resources and time to a good glass of claret with a friend. I call this fine living. Therefore, I’m starting this journey to share, educate, question and inspire about fine living.

What will be showcased on themannered.com?

Be ready to share in adventures in travel (both near and far), restaurant reviews, wine/other fine beverage reviews, product reviews on quality products that we love and other things that encompass fine living.
