‘I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman’ BOOK LAUNCH IN LONDON

'I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman' BOOK LAUNCH IN LONDON

‘I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman’ Book by Rose Callahan (Author, Editor) & Nathaniel Adams (Editor) is clearly in the top of my Christmas wish list!

I visited the book launch in London that took place in Gieves & Hawkes Shop on the Savile Row. It was such an amazing & inspirational evening.

One could sit and stare all night at all these flamboyant dandies!

British Craftsmanship

Do you still remember the times when one used to have a few sets of clothing carefully tailored & maintained that would last for decades?

Clothing used to be your second skin clearly differentiating you from the others.

Now I feel that fashion made us all to loose our skins and put similar uniforms instead. Why do we listen? Why do we all want to be the same?

Consumerism made us to forget about the craftsmanship and formed rather a negative attitude towards it: ‘ this is just what my grandpa would care about’.

I believe that if we keep continuing to be ignorant to the fact that there is less and less skillful craftsmen left we will soon see their work in the museum behind the glass.

Lets bring it back! Lets make people to admire the craftsmanship again!

I simply do not want to see the British heritage vanishing.

The Dandy Lab- Save British Craftsmanship!

The Dandy Lab- Save British Craftsmanship!

I just can not stand the fact that most of the heritage brands are vanishing with such a speed. It would be nice if The Dandy Lab manage to bring together similar-minded people and shape the attitude towards consumerism and high street retail domination.

The Dandy Lab -Movement to Save British Craftsmanship & Cult of Gentleman

The Fact: There are only 150 British Men Lifestyle Brands left that are still producing goods in the UK. These brands represent heritage & craftsmanship of the whole country. Sadly, but this number is becoming smaller due to the constant pressure from the high street shops.

There is the whole new generation of people who have never seen a good quality piece of clothing or could not tell the difference between the high street and exclusively crafted products. 

It is painful to see how everything, what the UK was famous for, is now being lost. 

We want to educate people about the craftsmanship & show that it is not all about the fashion. What matter is the style & individuality!
