For those who love clothing, or anyone interested in popular culture..this one is a gem!
The book is made up of chapters devoted to a single man who is considered a "dandy" or one who dresses in the most elegant way -- some wearing nothing but custom made suits, while others only wear vintage turn-of-the-century clothes -- as they describe their fashion style and what makes a man a "dandy," and why they started dressing like this.
I like that there are men of all ages, races, nationalities, and locales featured in this book. The full color pictures show the clothes, and sometimes the interior of their homes and closets, and I found it fascinating to read about each one and why and how they started dressing this way. There are so many men in this book that some only get a two page spread, while others get more, but it's interesting to see how diverse these guys are.
Although I've never heard of this resurgence in being a "dandy," I'm glad that there are men who are pushing the male fashion envelop further with these new interpretations of clothes; they see dressing as not just some item to cover up the body, but as a statement of how they feel about themselves and about life in general.
Definitely buy if you enjoy men's fashion, style, or fascinating subjects and photography.
