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.

Happy 2016 from Classic Style for the Average Guy!

A vintage magazine advertisement from the mid-1950s.  Surely, there must still be a few groups of male friends who look and behave in as civilized a way when they gather in 2016?

Happy New Year!  Let's make 2016 'The Year of Greater Elegance and Style.'  Let's strive to introduce both to a higher degree into our daily personal appearance, behavior, and living spaces.  Even if we are not born into monetary riches, there is no reason we cannot make an honest effort to spruce up ourselves and our surroundings.  As ol' Mom used to tell my sister and I during our formative years, "Do it for yourself, even if or when you are by yourself."  She had a point, ol' Mom did.
