MANAGER MAGAZINE seldom deals with such irrelevant topics as fashion and aesthetics but have now given some thought to the originator of our name, the dandy.
Author Maren Hoffman says:
“The concept of dandy is proclaimed dead as often as it is called a trend. They do exist however: Men that put an equal amount of importance on form as much as content while also admitting to it.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that we got to contribute our quite un-dandy two cents:
“Carl Jakob Haupt who successfully runs German men’s fashion blog Dandy Diary together with David Kurt Karl Roth sums it up a little harsher: “You can be old and fat and still be a dandy.” A lot of things have already been said about Haupt’s blog when looking at the Google auto fill search – “Dandy Diary Pool Party” is ranked fourth. Not only the parties are legendary, but also their fashion porn the duo had produced, and the stunt where they sent a streaker on a runway.”
