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.

One Monday in October. . .

 The top half today.

And the bottom half including Merino wool socks from Dapper Classics and a surprisingly comfortable pair of calfskin monk strap loafers from Land's End that are about eight years old.

In full Autumn mode here at the moment.  Even cooler weather is on the way, so it just might be possible to don a sweater or a vest/waistcoat beneath a tweed jacket later this week.  As much as I enjoy snow and cross country skiing, Fall is my favorite season of the year.

Still enjoying your blog. Have it on front page of my tablet and visit often. The jacket appears to be corduroy. It looks great. Very casual, but not the accepted "casual" of today. Keep up the great work and good fortunes to you and your family with the career move.
