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.

Time for Tweed, Flannel, and Corduroy!

"Do ya feel lucky?  Well?  Do ya?"  Dirty Harry Callahan as portrayed by the fabulous Clint Tweedwood.

The weather has at last turned really cool here and looks to remain so for the next week according to the National Weather Service website.  

Hurrah!  Looks like it's time to brush down and zip up the warm weather gear and bring out the flannels, tweeds, and corduroys.  I've also got a newly acquired pair of Allen Edmonds 'longwing' brogues to give their inaugural wearing next week.  

Now, if only my tailor had not been inexplicably and maddeningly closed when I took that load of stuff by late this morning, things would be toppermost of the poppermost.  It doesn't seem like I'll ever manage to get that darn double-breasted Glen Plaid suit in delightful cream and charcoal flannel in for alterations.  Grrrrr. . .   Go ahead.  Make my day!
