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.

Kindergarten Meet and Greet Style. . .

The bottom half today.  Pants by Brooks Brothers, socks by Dapper Classics, and shoes by Allen Edmonds

A warm one this afternoon and, naturally, also the day we had to take our son to meet his new teacher and school principle.  Blue and red short-sleeve Madras shirt, navy chino shorts, and light blue and yellow tennis shoes for the Young Master.  The Grand Duchess wore a tan linen sundress with sandals, and yours truly wore a navy hopsack blazer, a lightweight white cotton button-down shirt with navy pinstripes, linen pants, green socks by Dapper Classics, and a pair of Allen Edmonds tassled loafers.  A brown braided belt and a silk pocket square featuring an orange edge, and an orange, smoky gray, and white geometric pattern completed the picture.  First outing for the pants, and they were indeed comfortable and breezy.  Wrinkled like a charm too.  Very happy with my thrifted purchase from two (?) years ago.  Hmmm.  I think a linen suit is in the cards for next summer.  And maybe a seersucker one after that?
