Classic Style Speaks Volumes. . .

'Niels' in Berlin, Germany doing a better James Bond than Daniel Craig as far as understated, elegant masculine attire is concerned.  Mr. Craig's is invariably too trendy and too tight.  The photograph comes from the Put This On website by the way.

As I have often mentioned in one way or another here at Classic Style for the Average Guy, what you wear and how you conduct yourself speak volumes. . .  In much the same way as any spoken and/or written language does.  Think of your attire and behavior as texts for the world to read.  However you might imagine it, though, there is no denying that we send a clear and distinct message with our clothes and actions. . .  whether we intend to, or not.  See what they have to say on the subject at Put This On.

  1. That photo speaks volumes. I agree about the Craig comment. Bond was always well tailored. While I like Craig's interpretation, I can't say quite the same thing about his wardrobe. Far too constricting to draw the Walther smoothly.

The Pleasaures of a Well-trained Dog. . .

  A few final photographs from my visit to my sister in Washington, D.C. last week.  These include  one of 'Mr. Beau,' my sister's meticulously trained and truly wonderful Doberman, another of my sister, second cousin, step-father, and yours truly on the steps of the church outside Lexington, North Carolina just after our late mother's interment service, two of me solo at the National Cathedral, and a final one of my sister and me hamming it up during a long evening walk the day before I returned to Michigan. My sister routinely walks to the cathedral, about three blocks from her place, to enjoy the grounds and gardens.  The Bishop's Garden, in particular, is a place she likes to sit for quiet contemplation and internal dialogues with our late maternal grandparents and mother, very much in keeping with the Episcopal side of things.  Our grandfather, who was raised Methodist, became an Episcopalian when he married our grandmother.   Before you ask, I am not sure tha

Almost Mid-June Sunday Style. . .

  A fter two months, Blogger has decided to allow me in the door once again, so I can add a long overdue post documenting my take on classic male style.  Since we are almost in the throes of summer, let's go with a warm weather theme this morning. Now, the items above will not be to everyone's taste:  Deck shoes without socks, shorts, pleats, skinny pale legs, etc.  All invite tisk-tisking and debate in certain online fora, but that's ok.   I wouldn't wear attire this to campus Monday through Friday, or to church.  But for relaxed, comfortable warm weather-wear around the house during the weekends, with maybe a quick trip down the road for a gallon of milk at the super market, this will do nicely, thank you very much.   It's certainly preferable to the wrinkled, torn, stained sloppy alternative we see everywhere in 2022.  Neither is it at all far removed from how the various men and boys across three generations of my extended family presented themselves during even
