Editorial Reviews

Review

“A visual and cultural history that deftly juxtaposes beautifully reproduced illustrations and photographs of individuals, clothing, and textiles with engaging text, the book will appeal to fashion historians and aspiring dandies.”—Publishers Weekly
(Publishers Weekly)

"Anyone curious about men's fashion and its history should read this book, which offers one of the most thorough and whimsical accounts of the evolution of male style."—Ann Binlot, The Manual
(Ann Binlot The Manuel)

“This exquisite catalogue. . . painstakingly and evocatively explores the ambitions, inventions, and fine details of fabric, texture, and cut of elegant linen shirts, broadcloth and naval jackets, university wardrobes, cotton twill weaves, vintage cycling and Harris tweeds, and morning suits. It works on multiple levels to inspire dandies and dandy admirers alike."—Choice
(Choice)

“A must-have for fashionable gentlemen.”—Flavorwire
(Flavorwire)

Book Description

Artist/Rebel/Dandy celebrates the well-dressed man, tracing the dandy’s many manifestations over the past two centuries and showing that he employs profound thought and imagination in his self-presentation.

The book inspired me to go see the A/R/D exhibit at RISD....equally spectacular! And the book is very comprehensive in its inclusion of nearly all of the exhibit.

Highly recommend the book which is asked in an exhibit at the Rhode Island School of Design, and features a number of interesting work, including Kathryn Sargent, former head cutter at one of Saville Row's most respected bespoke tailors.
