Real Dandies

"So who are the real dandies? Charles Baudelaire, Quentin Crisp, Bunny Roger, Tintin, Marc Bolan, Johnny Rotten, Robin Dutt and me--not in that order of importance. All these dandies are roped together like mountaineers heading for the summit of beauty. You see, my darlings, true dandyism is rebellious. The dandy is part warrior, part stargazer, part gambler, part crusader, part plunderer, part violator, part martyr. He is fit for the highest and the lowest society--and keeps out of both."

- Sebastian Horsley

I can very much agree with that quote (minus the 'my darlings' part)!
