Please don’t worry if yo don’t find any new articles on DANDY DIARY in the next couple of days. It could very well be that we’ll be locked up in the can for a few days.
That’s of course all worth it though, since tonight we’re launching the DANDY DIARY DESIGNER FOURSOME we developed. And as it’s etiquette when publishing a gambling game we’re throwing a crazy and highly exclusive back room game: The first Designer Foursome tournament in the world.
Out of all guests we’re drawing 16 players who will have to face off in one of the toughest games in the world: Top Trumps (Foursome).
The winner gets €1,000 in cash, black, and tax-free. Unless the police busts the event beforehand. Then we’ll just throw the money up in the air hoping to escape in that confusion of desperate money-craving people hunting for a few notes.
Anyway: We’re really looking forward to seeing all our guests tonight and playing the craziest top trumps game in the world!
(The above picture is obviously taken from the coolest gambling movie of all times: Casino. Those who have nothing better to do tonight should watch the movie and hold their thumbs that everything will run smoothly with our game and the police.)
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
Dandy of the Week: Daniel Sturridge
A Dandy sees red
After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
