With the emergence of the modern man becoming far more discerning when it comes to sartorial elegance, it seems that the contemporary fashion world is beginning to hark back to the days of the Dandy, when gentlemen placed a particular importance upon physical appearance and a refined language, portrayed in a definite display of nonchalance.
Famous Dandies have come from various backgrounds, from the early incarnation of ‘the celebrity’ – George Bryan “Beau” Brummell – a man chiefly famous for just being famous! Through to contemporary examples such as Noel Coward, Andy Warhol and Quentin Crisp.
Modern sub-cultures in Japan took Dandyism to their hearts in the 1990s whilst the modern term ‘Dude’ is thought to be derived from the original Dandy label.
Cufflinks, cravats and handkerchiefs are all part of the generic Dandy look, but Dandyism penetrates further than just single items, it is a train of thought that the modern gent exude like a glorious muster of peacocks!
