DANDY
[ Also see Beaus Coxcomb Dress Fashion Fastidiousness Foppery Fops Ornament ]

Dandies, when first-rate, are generally very agreeable men.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

A dandy is a clothes-wearing man--a man whose trade, office, and existence consist in the wearing of clothes. Every faculty of his soul, spirit, person and purse is heroically consecrated to this one object--the wearing of clothes, wisely and well; so that, as others dress to live, he lives to dress.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Dandyism is refined vulgarity.
      - Charles Frederic Goss

Dandyism is a species of genius.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

All finery is a sign of littleness.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

A fool may have his coat embroidered with gold, but it is a fool's coat still.
      - Antoine de Rivarol, Comte de Rivarol

Oh! save me, ye powers, from these pinks of the nation,
  These tea-table heroes! these lords of creation.
      - Salmagundi

Clothes form the intellect of the dandy.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)
