“I Am Dandy” has arrived!

Just received my copy of Rose Callahan’s and Natty Adams’ magnum opus, I Am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman (Gestalten). I was amazed at the number and variety of profiles in this book: quite a menagerie of personalities. I look forward to reading the profiles. I’m the potato in the rose garden of course (Compared to the other exquisites, martinets and peacocks, I’m rather shabbily clad), but I’m deeply flattered to have been included. Thank you, Rose and Natty!

    Obsessives and gossips interested in reviews of this book can poke their nose in this tempestuous little teacup. (Apparently “Bingo” is the new “Macaca.”)

    The style of Mr. Barima Owusu-Nyantekyi is probably my favorite of all the gentlemen featured in the book. His look is distinct from everyone else, and it is perfectly suited for him. His style has a slight retro feel, but unlike some styles in the book, it isn’t unique to Olde-Timey Island. The broad planes of his suits hang beautifully on him, and the bold patterns and vibrant colors in his shirts and ties give off a wonderful vitality. The overall silhouette is rendered in clean, bold lines. You want to be him, which is a hallmark of great style.
