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: Wearing a Suit Makes You Think Differently. . .


There was a piece on The Atlantic website yesterday on how wearing a suit to the workplace can influence and even change one's thinking in critical ways.  It's probably lost on guys who are already dead set against and see no reason to bother sprucing themselves up, practicing polite table manners, and the like, but the piece is nevertheless an interesting read for anyone with an interest in men's style beyond sweatpants, cargo shorts, flip-flops, ripped preternaturally faded jeans, and/or untucked shirts.  Can we even use the world "style" in the same sentence with those garments?
