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.

New Squares!

They have finally arrived!  Two cotton pocket squares and a silk one from Put This On.

While I have a number of different pocket squares already, sometimes you just need to replenish things a bit.  So, when the folks at Put This On had a sale back during the first half of August on their handmade squares, some of which were reduced to a mere fraction of their original retail prices, I threw caution to the wind and ordered the three you see above.  It took longer than usual for these to arrive due to an out-of stock on one item, and some crossed wires in communication, but we eventually sorted everything out, and here they are.  Since the weather is supposed to cool considerably , with much lower humidity, by the start if the week, a suit is in order for Monday with the restrained blue and red number at right I think and a very plain necktie.  Ahhhhh. . .  It's nice to look forward to getting dressed instead of viewing the possibility as something to fear and loathe.
