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.
