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.

Everywhere you look, it's snow, snow, snow, and more snow!

L.L. Bean "duck shoes" in the snow.  Photograph swiped from

We have more snow falling this morning, with 2"-4" inches expected.  And that on top of an already solid snowpack.  While I love the stuff as a cross-country/Nordic skier, and we have actually enjoyed a real winter this year, it plays hell with one's plans to wear decent looking leather dress shoes.  So, while I had hoped I might be able to wear a pair of vintage tan Florsheim brogues with galoshes today, once again, it will be my trusty pair of L.L. Bean duck shoes with a heavy pair of winter wool knee socks.  Sigh.  I simply must remember to purchase a pair of the 10" Bean Boots before the approach of winter much later this year before they are sold out again.
