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.

Casual Need Not Mean Slovenly, Part II. . .

Heinz-Ulrich strikes a pose before burying wife and child in a shower of crunchy fall leaves.

It's amazing how something as simple as tucking in your shirt and putting on a belt can make a guy look a lot more pulled together for a weekend outing with family or friends.  Nothing new or particularly expensive here.  An old, comfortable blue oxford cloth button-down collar shirt, some old cotton shorts, a battered, old hat that I've had for about 20 years, an equally old leather belt, and the recently acquired, but now well broken in Sperry Tops-siders.  Perfect for an extremely relaxed and warmer autumn afternoon.  Yet more proof that dressing presentably need not cost scads of money, require lots of time or effort, or be uncomfortable.
