This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Using Beau Brummell as a springboard, Philip Mann launches into a comprehensive study of dandyism not only in England but across Europe; its origins, critics, influence, and six of the twentieth century's most important though often misunderstood dandies. "The dandy is his clothing", but Dandies at Dusk is far more than a book on men's fashion, bringing to the fore the aesthetic concerns of the dandy, the nonchalance so fundamental to the dandy persona, the dandy's melancholic nostalgia for the Edwardian "Golden era", and the inseparable link between dandyism and modernism, while simultaneously portraying the cultural development of a century punctuated by two World Wars and social upheaval.
