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.

It's Finally Autumn at Last!

Land's End cords, Dapper Classics Merino wool socks, and recently resoled vintage Florsheim gunboats.  Up top, a cream, olive, tan, and brown houndstooth tweed hacking jacket, brown wool vest, blue OCBD shirt, and an ancient madder necktie in primarily dark red.  Plus a cream and red silk pocket square.  Kind of like a dandified Bertie Wooster today.

A cool, breezy one here today.  Finally able to dress decently without being covered by a patina of perspiration 10 minutes after leaving home.  How utterly refreshing.  In other news, I had yet another close encounter of the Danish kind between classes today as I sipped a quick cappuccino at a sidewalk cafe across the street from campus.  Three Danish graduate students were deep in conversation at the next table.  This is the third or fourth time in as many weeks that I have overheard Danish here at MSU.  Who knew?
