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.

Springtime Style. . .

Yet another great old Laurence Fellows illustration, this time from an old issue of Esquire magazine.

A sunny, albeit cool spring morning here at Stollen Central.  I've broken out a pair of red, navy, and cream Madras shorts plus a navy knit short-sleeved polo shirt to wear at home today along with my usual leather dock-siders.  Jumping the gun a bit maybe -- It's not July or August yet after all. -- but for noodling around inside down here in my office, it feels perfect.  

Tomorrow is May 1st.  Be sure to wear something red like the guy in the illustration above and sing The Internationale as you march.
