Dandy Video: Jazz Age Lawn Party

We love this video of the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island from earlier in the month, created by our friend Andrew Shirk (one of the first gents photographed for our blog) and his collaborator, Karly Schieder.  Also, check out their video from the Polo Match on Governor's Island earlier this summer on their blog, The Influential Archive.

Dandies In Print: Four Famous Dandies

Via Cator Sparks on the New York Times T Magazine blog, fashion illustrator Jim Howard's Four Famous Dandies will be released next week by Paper Studio Press.  Howard captures Beau Brummell, Oscar Wilde, the Duke of Windsor, and modern-day dandy Patrick McDonald in a book of, wait for it... paper dolls.  (Please take note for a certain shopkeeper's Christmas wish list).  Already a new title to add to our Dandy Reading list.

Dandies On TV: Mad Men

In anticipation of the Mad Men Season 4 premiere tonight we thought we'd share some images from the show highlighting the impeccable style of the dapper gentlemen of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency.

Dandy Reading

Prompted by a recent commenter on our Facebook page, we've added a Dandy Reading list on the right hand side of the blog.  We certainly don't suggest that our list is in any way complete.  We suspect that we may have even missed some titles from our own bookshelf.  However, we thought this might be a good starting point.  Some of our favorites from the list: J. C. Leyendecker by Laurence S. Cutler and Judy Goffman Cutler, Mr. Classic Jeremy Hackett, A Privileged Life: Celebrating Wasp Style by Susanna Salk, ABC Of Men's Fashion by Hardy Aimes, Gentleman: A Timeless Fashion: by Bernhard Roetzel and A Man's Book: Fashion In The Man's World In The 20's And 30's edited by Jane Waller. 

What are your favorites?

Dandies In Print: The New York Times

In Sunday's New York Times, Bill Cunningham shoots New York guys coping with the heat from the past few weeks.  The photos show the familiar image of guys walking with jackets in hand.  And then he shows a few "young fellas" who embrace the heat and look like a million bucks.  We were delighted to see that Cunningham shot our friend Michael Andrew (last photos) three days in a row.








Three days of Michael Andrew:
