Last Thursday night Rose and I celebrated the release of "I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman," at a very elegant and beautiful party at Bergdorf Goodman's men's store, co-sponsored by the New Yorker and Brioni. The party was incredible and overwhelming; over 500 people RSVP'd, many of the dandies from the book among them. Needless to say, it was a picture-perfect crowd, and I'm sure Rose will post more photographs from the night over at The Dandy Portraits.
Coverage of the book and its related events has been phenomenal.
The Bergdorf Goodman blog has a summary with some lovely photographs.
The Wall Street Journal wrote about the Bergdorf event today.
Women's Wear Daily also covered the event.
The always-erudite Lord Whimsy wrote about the evening on his blog.
Rose and I took over the Bergdorf Goodman blog last week, posting this article on "Dressing Dandy," among other things.
Cator Sparks, one of the men in the book, interviewed us for the Huffington Post.
Gilt MANual interviewed Rose about the book for their blog.
The Scout also has an excellent interview with Rose.
A Suitable Wardrobe reviewed the book here.
Overseas coverage has been great, too:
In the UK the book was featured in The Times on Sunday Magazine as well as The Daily Mail and The Independent.
Belgian magazine Het Nieuwsblad has an article on the book (in Dutch.)
German magazine Manager also has a feature on the book (in German.)
But perhaps most impressive of all is the video feature Gestalten.tv did on the book:
