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.

Linen Thursday. . .

A Southwick linen and wool blend sports jacket, a Geoffrey Beene Italian necktie, and a cotton pocket square from Put This On above.

Still very warm and humid here in Mid-Michigan.  Lower 80s (about 28 Celsius) today, so I hauled out some warm weather gear.  Kind of pleased with how nicely all of this seemed to come together this morning without too much thought, which is how we like it.  I will, however, share a real howler from earlier in the week tomorrow that illustrates what can happen when you don't think about your attire at all.  A real "What in the heck was I thinking??!!" moment.

-- Heinz-Ulrich


Allen Edmonds shoes, socks by Dapper Classics, and linen pants from Polo Ralph Lauren I think on the bottom.

Heinz-Ulrich,
It's been three weeks since you treated us to a dose of civilization.
I hope that all is well.
