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.

Classic Style Tip #999. . .

A seasonally fitting Laurence Fellows illustration from Spring 1934.

Here's today's classic style tip for average guys working hard to kick up their everyday style.  Ready?  Here we go.  Buck the societal trend of at least the last half century and don't make your problem(s) someone else's problem(s).  You handle it.

That includes avoiding Twitter and Facebook and the conceit/arrogance of the assumption that other people are at all interested in one's problems.

That illustration perfectly fits the expression "if looks could kill".

Exactly. It's how I feel every time someone calls me dude, bro, or tries to fistbump or high five me.

And we're all about conceit and arrogance here at Classic Style for the Average Guy!

Classic Style for the Average Guy is hardly about conceit and arrogance; quite the contrary, I daresay: it's about try to lift high-fiving, fist-bumping dudes and bros out of the mud. Keep up the good work, sir!
