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.

To what should we aspire precisely?

Couldn't resist another photograph of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie as Jeeves and Wooster for this particular post.

To what degree should average guys, who are interested in kicking up their everyday style a few notches, aspire?  To be no less than spiffy in everyday appearance and behavior would be most spiffing.

-- Heinz-Ulrich

adjective: spiffy; 1. smart in appearance.  "That's a spiffy new outfit."

Brit. informal, dated
adjective: spiffing; 1. excellent; splendid.  "How spiffing you look!"

 A Laurence Fellows illustration, I think, showing a few very spiffy gents in their spiffing suits from the 1930s.
