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.

The Waning Days of Tweed and Flannel. . .

The top half today, April 14th.  Finally, almost too warm for this kind of stuff.

Especially pleased with the way today's combo of items turned out.  But it's just about time to put these sorts of things away until next October or so.  Sad, because a heavy tweed two-piece suit by Chipp arrived today that I'm dying to wear.  Muted dark green with a faint windowpane pattern woven into it.  A 3/2 roll coat and plain front, fully lined pants with nice big cuffs.  I've been after a suit like this for a long time, and it already fits well, so any necessary alterations will be minimal.  However, it's definitely too warm for wear in the foreseeable future.  It's gotta be downright nippy to pull this one off comfortably.  Well, I can dream about it in the meantime.
