A dandy with a business card? Heaven forbid.

I think I saw the name Chester Jefferies of England on one of the descriptions from the Jay Kos glove auctions. Damn, those are nice (and a good price). Nah, I'm hoping someone else buys them all up so I don't spend $$ on something else I can't justify at the moment (besides, thinking about rewarding myself for the job offer letter I'm supposed to receive in the next week....not gloves!)

Damn, I guess no Dandy is complete without a proper umbrella-- several brought that subject up. I'd guess the Whangee handle umbrella is the pinnacle for the modern Dandy-- but certainly whatever the choice, it comes from Swaine, Fox, or a special italian company.

Not to be confused with a pimp slap

you know, if that jacket had narrow lapels it might be pretty cool. Reminds me of Etro.

My guess is that thing is in the V&A Museum in London as a Tommy Nutter period piece or something. The inimitable Oscar Udeshi does similar stuff in contemporary styles -- check him in Harrods or at his boutique on Davies St if you get to London.

Narrow lapels and collar stays seem very un-Dandy to me. A Dandy isn't afraid to flap.

If you put his name into Google images you get a picture of little foof having a fitting for a Rubinacci sportsjacket.

Immaculate white silk hosery and a periwig, maybe.

A waxed moustache (and accessories to make & maintain one) and a monacle.

Damn, some of you guys are pretty old fashioned in your ideas of the Dandy! I figured the Modern Dandy would have somewhat modern adaptations of style, not quite crossing the line into "period costume" from the early part of the century. I think more along the looks of Hamish Bowles than the monacle-sporting/ cigarette holder forumite I spotted here once or twice.

OK, fess up-- who bought a pair of Jay Kos gloves from the auctions, and where are the pics?
