The culture of Dandyism — the well-dressed, refined gentleman — began in London in the 19th century, but these guys put a modern twist on it.

"The philosophy that describes dandy, it’s the philosophy of freedom, of joy, of passion, of respect and sharing."

Mohamed, 29, says he was influenced by his father's sense of style.

"My relationship with fashion started when I was really young thanks to my father. He was passionate about jackets, presence, elegance," he told the blog. "When I was young I loved it when my father came back from the office wearing his beautiful suit. It really impressed me. Unlike other boys of my age who asked their parents for a spiderman costume all I really wanted was to dress like my dad because he was the real hero to me."

Maxime, 26, has always been into fashion. "I was just born with it. You can’t ask someone why they like strawberries. It’s just that they do. Fashion is just within me," he said.

Being a dandy, explains Vasta, isn't about spending a ton on your wardrobe, either.

"To us, the definition of style is more about matching of clothes, the colors, the fabric rather than a question of price," he said. "The cost of the jacket has no importance. You don’t need to spend 1,000 euros on a jacket. It doesn’t even need to be expensive as long as it’s matching with the rest of the outfit.”
