The pithy, opinionated, and sometimes brutally frank Heinz-Ulrich von Boffke challenges average guys to live a life less ordinary and embrace classic style in the broadest sense. it's time to rise above the trite, the boring, the predictable, the mundane, the banal, and the commonplace. It's time to stop behaving like barnyard animals at the trough and leave behind the perpetually sloppy man-child aesthetic of the last two decades or so. It's time to learn once again how to present and conduct yourself like an adult with some grooming, finesse, and sophistication. And here is where you can learn how.

Sartorial Food for Thought. . .

The late Jack Klugman (as Oscar Madison) and Tony Randall (as Felix Unger) as The Odd Couple, the TV version of the roles made famous a few years earlier onstage and in film by the late Walter Matthau and Jack Lemon.

Sometimes, you have the oddest thoughts where you immediately remark to yourself, "My God!  That's right!"  In his day, TV's Oscar Madison was considered a lovable though  inveterate slob.  Yet, he usually dressed miles better than most guys do in our own time 40-odd years later.  Even when he wore plain old khakis, a gray sweatshirt, and tennis shoes.  Guys?  What the hell happened us?
