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.

Rainy (and Cooler) Day Style. . .

The top half for today, featuring a Canali flannel sports jacket, Brooks Brothers OCBD shirt, a 1990s vintage Ralph Lauren necktie (a little wide, but not unattractively so), and an orange-brown and black silk pocket square (actually a lady's scarf).  Given the rain and wet this morning, the bottom consisted of my rainy day gear: a pair of old Levis Docker chinos and a pair of Johnston Murphy penny loafers.  Not the greatest items, but they help me save the better shoes and pants for nicer weather.

Another necktie that I like a lot although it is a bit wider than the (apparently) preferred 3" (or so) width.
