They Are Dandies: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman
In a world of uniformity and globalized styles, only some cultivated gentlemen retain their independence over the way they dress and live. Gestalten’s new book “I am Dandy”, by photographer Rose Callahan and writer Nathaniel “Natty” Adams, was recently launched at the bespoke gentleman’s tailor Gieves & Hawkes, No. 1 Savile Row London. The book documents the well-kept lives of 57 protagonists of contemporary dandyism with a keen, yet empathic eye. Gestalten.tv flew to Brighton, London, and New York to meet with Natty and Rose as well as a few of these exquisite modern gentlemen to learn all about their styles, attitudes and philosophies, and discover how dandyism today is a rebellious attitude and obsessive calling that can be cultivated on any budget.
I Am Dandy is available on the Seventh Floor. Call 212 872 2758 for more details.
