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.

Tweed and Tartan Thursday. . .

 The upper half early today (7:45am-ish) while enjoying a coffee, a piece of Lemon Pound Cake, and reading over a stack of informal student written responses in the cafe before office hours.  The season's first tartan tie along with a Harris Tweed jacket that I picked up for less the US$10 a couple of years ago in one of my old thrifting hunts back in Central Illinois.


And the lower half, including some Merino Wool Fair Isle knee-length socks from Dapper Classics.  

Cooler here in Mid-Michigan today, obviously, or I would have not been able to stand the warmer tweed and corduroy for long.  Even cooler this weekend apparently.  Can the shaggy dog and Fair Isle sweaters be far behind?
