FOPS
[ Also see Dandy Foppery ]

The all importance of clothes has sprung up in the intellect of the dandy without effort, like an instinct of genius; he is inspired with clothes, a poet of clothes.
      - Thomas Carlyle

A six-foot suckling, mincing in its gait,
  Affected, peevish, prim and delicate;
    Fearful it seemed tho' of athletic make,
      Lest brutal breezes should so roughly shake
        Its tender form, and savage motion spread
          O'er its pale cheeks, the horrid manly red.
      - Charles Churchill

So gentle, yet so brisk, so wondrous sweet,
  So fit to prattle at a lady's feet.
      - Charles Churchill

In form so delicate, so soft his skin,
  So fair in feature, and so smooth his chin,
    Quite to unman him nothing wants but this;
      Put him in coats, and he's a very miss.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

A fop who admires his person in a glass soon enters into a resolution of making his fortune by it, not questioning that every woman who falls in his way will do him as much justice as himself.
      - Thomas Hughes

A fop takes great pains to hang out a sign, by his dress, of what he has within.
      - Samuel Richardson

Their methods various, but alike their aim; the sloven and the fopling are the same.
      - Edward Young
