THE AFRICAN DANDY ARE THE TRUE ARBITERS OF STYLE BY MIKE KAGEE

THE AFRICAN DANDY
ARE THE TRUE
ARBITERS OF STYLE

PLURAL-DANDIES

DANDY-A MAN WHO PLACES
PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE
UPON PHYSICAL
APPEARANCE AND STYLE 

A FOLLOW-UP OF MY ARTICLE
"THE DANDY WORLD OF MEN HAVE FINALLY COME OUT OF THE CLOSET"

MEN OF FASHION IS A PIONEERING CULTURAL HISTORY
OF THE AFRICAN OR AFRICAN-AMERICAN DANDY!
DANDYISM WAS INITIALLY IMPOSED ON BLACK MEN
IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY AND ROSE TO 
PROMINENCE AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY
AND AFRICAN MEN EMBRACED THE FASHION
BLACK MEN BECAME TRUE ARBITERS OF STYLE
AND HAVE USED THE DANDY SIGNATURE TOOLS
TO PERFECTION-CLOTHING-GESTURE-AND WIT
THEY GAINED PROMINENCE THROUGH EXTRAVAGANT
DRESS AND ENCROACHMENT OF TRADITIONALLY
WHITE SPACES A CHANGE FROM BEING STYLIZED
TO SELF STYLIZATION
