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.

If not for yourself, then dress for the special person in your life. . .

The Madmen characters Roger Sterling and Don Draper hold up a bar somewhere in the Manhattan of the early 1960s, yet they manage to look great while doing so.  Believe it, or not, people tend to notice men dressed this well, and men who exude a similar self-confidence.

Apparently, "Women will sacrifice a lot for style: Eight in ten (80 percent) women would give up something in their lives — such as going out to dinner, using their cell phone, or even having sex for an entire year — for a better-dressed partner."

As I've long thought, and mentioned here before at The Average Guy's Guide to Classic Style, spouses and partners (of either sex) appreciate men who put some effort into their clothes and grooming.  Whether they actually say so, or not.  Read the rest of this interesting and thought-provoking essay by Sonya Glyn Nicholson at The Parisian Gentleman.
