They are Dandies

The Return of the Elegant Gentlemen
Posted by Angie—10/2013

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 the exquisite modern gentlemen featured in the book, to learn all about their styles, attitudes and philosophies. Together, they help us to explore contemporary dandyism as a rebellious attitude and obsessive calling that can be cultivated on any budget.
