I would like to continue with my theme from yesterday. That is, knowing and wearing what works for you. A man who exemplifies this ethos better than most is Dandy Wellington.
Dandy, whom I have had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with a few times, was recently featured in Rose Callahan and Nathaniel Adams’ book I Am Dandy. He is also the band leader of Dandy Wellington and His Band, a NYC based jazz ensemble.
Anyway, Rose and Kelly Desmond Bray (aka Rarebit Productions) put out a video a few days ago profiling Dandy (titled The Dandy Portraits – Dandy Wellington). In it he talks about his style and what style is to him. As to be expected, it is overflowing with beautiful clothing, style and setting – for that alone it is worth the view.

You made me smile. I’ve been putting off wearing my Kilim shoes … plans afoot to wear them tonight!
Hope the wearing went well!
