Johannes Brahms, circa 1853, age 20
Next up is the Dickensian Dandy. It goes along quite well with the aformentioned link not unlike two peas in a pod. This assemblage of images is a serious nod to dandyism and all the pomp, circumstance, refinery and gallantry that goes along with it. It is a smart mix of men's fashion, dandy icons, old timey illustrations and well crafted interiors. In short, if I were a man it would be a bible of sorts. Seeing that I am a woman I will take pleasure in daily perusal of both of these sweet gatherings of eye candy.
