I first came to know him as the fabulous Sherlock Holmes, and fabulous he most certainly is, my goodness I have never seen such elegance in a crime drama and certainly never seen Sherlock Holmes depicted this way on American screens.
His name is Benedict Cumberbatch, an up-and-coming actor with already a lot of grand performances under his belt.
And boy can he strike a Dandy pose in any outfit he is put in.
He looks good in and out of a suit.
Coats and jackets love his frame. He really shows how a suit, coat or jacket should hang and frame the body.
But what I also love is that when he is not in something that demands you serve it, he can present relaxed and casual in such an elegant way.
And he even allows whimsy to come into play, you’ve always got to make the outfit your own!
And for all you Trekkies out there look for him in the upcoming Star Trek – Into Darkness playing the villain (villains always get to wear the best clothes, I hope they stay true to this.)

I just clicked on the Opening Ceremony page of the 2012 Olympics|London and we now have 3 hours and 19 minutes to go before all we hear (like it’s not happening already) for the next two weeks will be about the Olympics.
I was a much bigger fan when I was younger. I loved both the summer and the winter Olympics. Now I am a bit meh about the whole thing (I hate to admit) though the opening ceremonies are hard to resist. They are very much equal to a mix of high concept runway show and high octane Cirque du Soleil (with slow parts in between).
There’s been a lot more fashion talk than usual about the designers for the Olympics, Stella McCartney’s participation definitely helped. Even Ab Fab came back from the dead to participate (I love those women!)
I watched the Olympic episode last night and the funniest bit were the ones with and about Stella.
Of course Ralph Lauren is the Proud Outfitter of Team USA (why is the girl in the back and why is there only one!?!)
And if you are itching for some Olympic gear of your own it is everywhere, but I really liked what Nautica came up with for a Dandi sports look.

Internationally known tailor Richard James, known as the ‘modern face’ of Savile Row is now collaborating and creating luscious bespoke inspired ready to wear all over the place.
Not only has he dressed the biggest names in English society but Hollywood icons as well . And if that weren’t enough he is sharing his craft by being a teacher to the next generation of tailors and cutters (awww…).
These suits are a classic but modern interpretation of the traditional British suit (even with tennis shoes as styled above). Richard James creates clean tailoring and beautiful silhouettes. Though Richard started out with suits he has expanded into shirts, knitwear, outerwear, swimwear, accessories, and shoes. (Gotta love these shoes!)
Lets face it, when I think of Bespoke, British and Savile Row the next thing that pops into my mind is not SpongeBob but sure enough this Richard fella has the good sense to know a great character and actually teamed up with SquarePants to create a limited capsule collection. This jacket is made-to-order. I’m going online now!
