It's elementary, my dear Watson: The Modern Dandy

Sherlock Holmes - fashion icon? For hipsters and stylish gentlemen who favor three piece suits, houndstooth and magnifying glasses. An interesting article in the New York Times observes a modern men's fashion trend toward Victorian dandyism - possibly influenced by costumes in such films as "There Will Be Blood", "The Prestige" with Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman and the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes" starring Robert Downey, Jr, Jude Law and Rachel McAdams. The look includes "tweedy vests, woolen trousers, henley undershirts, dark wool ties, scratchy cotton shirts." You can read the full article here.
