"The British man and the designers who design for him stepped into the international style limelight when journalists proclaimed that the 'noughties' were the decade of British tailoring. With the shifting sartorial identity of the contemporary Englishman, the dandy was a figure that many designers alighted upon to express the nature of modern masculinity." "Just in time for the re-emergence of the suit, its accoutrement and lifestyle accompaniments, comes the bible of men's dressy style, a fashion handbook and treasure trove of ideas tailored to the well-dressed man. Six chapters offer six takes on the twenty-first-century dandy." "Each thematic section features a specially commissioned sixteen-page fashion shoot by a rising star of fashion photography and eight pages of bespoke inspiration, instruction, interviews and insight. A reference section has a tailor's glossary and contact information. Whether your taste runs to the classic or the modern, the English dandy sets the pattern for the twenty-first-century male."--BOOK JACKET.
