Dandy of the Bacongo

My fascination with the dandy aesthetic remains inescapable, alas my writing skills cannot be stretched into delivering a rousing appreciation of Daniele Tamagni's book Gentleman of the Bacongo for Crack. Due to budget restrictions / photograph license fees my feature has been pulled, I want to take a few minutes to appreciate the Sapeurs that brighten up and arouse my fashion senses into a state on euphoric contentment. It makes me want to go and seek out these dapper dudes and take my own pictures, however I am suspicious as to whether they would perform for my lens as well as Daniele's... Gentlemen of the Bacongo is available online from Trolleybooks or the Here Gallery, Stokes Croft, Bristol.
