Long Live the Dandy!

Let us be in the mood for week-end...

It is of common knowledge that I do have a weakness for dandies. Furthermore, thanks to Mad Men, my admiration for the 50's aesthetics has been radically increasing for the past months. These two interests are being here united on the September 2008 cover of Monsieur, which states "The dandy is dead, long live the dandy!".

This French magazine, published since 1920, is self-described as "The elegant man's reference" and multiplies simple yet effective covers. Just has my admiration for dandies is in part based on their mysterious charm, I do not wish to read those magazines, fearful of seeing them loose their appeal...
