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.

A Coooooold February Saturday. . .
Quite cold here at Totleigh-in-the-Wold this Saturday morning. Down into the single digits Fahrenheit, which is the coldest we have had it here in our part of Lower Michigan so far this winter. We have also rounded the 100k visitor mark according to my Blogger account settings, and that seems like a nice reason to celebrate, albeit in an understated, quiet way. So, I thought it might be fun to share a bunch of old illustrations from the 1930s and 40s (the New Yorker skiing cartoon is from the early 50s) that are 'temperaturely' appropriate. These have been culled from various places on the web by the way. I hope you enjoy them. Happy Saturday!
