In a world of uniformity and globalized styles, only some cultivated gentlemen retain their independence over the way they dress and live. Gestalten's new book "I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman" with photographs by Rose Callahan and texts by Nathaniel "Natty" Adams, was recently launched at the bespoke gentleman's tailor Gieves & Hawkes, No. 1 Savile Row London. The book documents the well-kept lives of 57 protagonists of contemporary dandyism with a keen yet empathic eye. Gestalten.tv flew to Brighton, London, and New York to meet with Natty and Rose, as well as a few of the exquisite modern gentlemen featured in the book, to learn about their styles, attitudes, and philosophies. Together, they help us to explore contemporary dandyism as a rebellious attitude and obsessive calling that can be cultivated on any budget. Watch the video here.
