The clock strikes twelve and the curtain closes on an evening of Jazz and Burlesque at Macao Trading Company. Crowds of well dressed revelers thin and disappear into the night leaving a few late night stragglers to nurse their cocktails or savor that final bite of cake. A bandleader and burlesque beauty seek solitude amidst the dimming lights and fading footsteps. Their figures illuminated by the votives, a photographer captures them in repose. – Dandy Wellington. @dandywellington

I recently took a look at Ralph Lauren’s Men Spring/Summer 2010 collection and it’s bursting with great looks to fill out the dandy days of Summer. In true Ralph Lauren fashion, the collection captures every aspect of classic American high society. From the nautical shorts to the club collar shirts dandies will be clean cut as they cool off. The colors are bright and robust with bold greens, strong pinks, and cool blues. Taking a cue from Mr. Lauren is sure to keep all my dandies looking truly debonair all Summer long.
