A dandy also known as a (gallant or beau)
is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance,
refined language and leisurely hobbies. Pursued with the appearance of
nonchalance and a cult of self.
In the 21st century, the word dandy is a jocular,
often sarcastic adjective meaning “fine” or “great”; when used in the form of a
noun, it refers to a well-groomed and well-dressed man, but often to one who is
also self absorbed. We are keeping the ‘Dandy’ alive and well with our socks.
