Nathaniel Adams, co-author of the book "I am Dandy," discusses the cultural history of dandyism, gives a tour of his personal wardrobe, and examines the way the theatrics of fashion relate to a person's inner character. He is a winner of "Dandy for 2013" prize.
"People assume that dandyism is an art of being generous, or a lifestyle choice or philosophy, but I think it is closer of metal disorder some kind, I mean in the best way. It i s obsession.", said Nathaniel Adams.
The co-author tells the meaning of the "dandy" word and gave some examples of men who are considered to be a dandy through the years - figures in the social life, politics and celebrities.
