The Dandies project as the organizers describe it “is carefully curated and designed into a look book which will serve as a fundraiser effort of the 2018 Dandies.”

The dandies come from a broad spectrum of society but tends to draw heavily from the professional and business classes. The Twin Cities based Dandies Project initially focused on successful men of color but has branched out and now includes all men.

Proceeds from the look book, as in previous years, benefits a local charity. The Dandies Project lead Amara Kamara said this week in a Facebook posting that this year’s beneficiary will be Lovely Sewing & Arts Collective, a non-profit based in north Minneapolis that is bringing back the art of sewing to the community as a tool “to teach patience, focus, leadership, entrepreneurship and accountability.”
